It's Friday so that means show and tell at Kellishouse! Click here to visit Kelli and other show and tells, too!
Short story: My Mom attended Orlando Senior High School. When she was a young mother, the school was torn down. People could purchase fixtures and even the real slate chalk boards before the school demo.
An artist bought the slate chalk boards and made and sold a variety of carvings.
My Papa Sammy bought this one for my Mama Rose, and it was one of my Mom's favorite things in her Mother's home. My grandmother was an interior decorator with real flair and loved unique pieces. When Mama Rose passed, my Mom got it, and in 2004 when my Mom passed, I got it.
It is one-of-a-kind, and is one of 4 priceless treasures from my Mom. It will soon have it's place of honor in a lighted niche in the living room. I can't wait!!
I'll post a pic when it's hung!
