I had an uneventful trip home from Dallas..made good time and arrived home about 4:30.
Good to be home! But I had a very nice visit with Lucian and ALL the Kielys! So wish I could be there for the fun part....putting all her treasures in her new place. Guess I will just have to go back down....
I brought back many things that she could not use....one being this adorable little chair. The story goes that my mother (her mother, too!)...bought this from a man early in her married years before any of us were born....the man did not want to sell...but when his wife died my mother was still asking him to sell...in frustration he said ok...just give me $1.00! It has been covered several times over and Lucian had it covered in this blue velvet for as many years as I can remember. It is now in our bedroom....and tho' not my style....looks very cute. As my sister Sally says...it looks like a piece of art. Someday Melanie will get it. I think it is called a slipper chair...Kevin...one of the Kiely 7 said it was...he said it was similar to one in Valeries family. I can sit on it and put on my slippers!!
Also brought back ALL of her paints....she had more than I have ever had as she used to paint many years ago. So that was quite a find. Other painting related supplies...wood items to finish....brushes....etc. My car looked like the Beverly Hillbillys on the way home. Got quite a few stares...maybe people were feeling sorry for the homeless lady with the little Chihuahua!
Guess that's it for now!
