Are You Kidding Me?!? Of Course Staying at a Place Like This Would Bring Me Joy!

January 27, 2010


Can’t stay long–I’m busy packing my bags for Eureka Springs, Arkansas, home of the Joy Motel

Can you even imagine how fun it would be to stay at the Joy Motel?  I mean, seriously!  Have you ever seen a happier looking sign? I wonder if the whole motel looks as happy as the sign?  I’m guessing that’s a big, fat yes.

I spotted this photo on Etsy (have you ever been to  If not, head on over there and check it out!  The whole site is dedicated to handmade and vintage goods.  You won’t believe what kind of goodness you can find over there!!).  This particular picture was taken by a photographer whose shop is called “Redfishphoto.”

I’ve got to tell you, it was love at first sight for me and this photo.   

This little piece of joy will hang in my new office.

And you better believe Eureka Springs, Arkansas is now on my official “must-visit” list. 

Have a fun day!

      Oh My Goodness! Thanks for the link, Uncle Ken!! It just keeps getting better and better! Biggest pool in town! S’mores around the fire pit! Blueberry, peanut butter, chocolate chip and plain pancakes! It doesn’t get much better than that. The site even promises to”Bring out the JOY in you!” I’m definitely going now!

        Even more goodness from their website: “Coming Soon! Our ‘Hippies from the Sixties’ room! Complete with Peace Signs, Black Lights and Incense! We’re not crazy, we just like to have fun!”

    Karen says only a 12 hour drive! Could be quit an adventure. I have a fantastic queen sized, memory foam air mattress so nobody has to sleep on the icky motel floor. 🙂
