The Object of My Desire: Spell it Out

The game of Scrabble will always hold a near and dear place in my childhood memories as a challenge of choice for many of my family members. My Grandma Churchill was always up for a match, and she gathered my uncles, aunts and both my parents around the table for a rollicking round of Scrabble that included words found in the dictionary, and sometimes not!

To this day, my parents still enjoy a brisk round at this board game, and this vintage pillow perched in the Carrol Gardens apartment of visual visionary Michael Quinn reminded me of those jolly games that took place around the dining room table.

What I also noticed about this pillow is that it seems pay homage to a family or a group of friends. And I, too, see some of my relatives and friends placed among the tiles! Jerry is my dad's name; Ruth is my bestie in LA; and I have two very good friends who are named Robert. And then there's Michael, of course. Without knowing him, I'd have never met this name game of a pillow.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
