From pelicans to Turkish carpets, this day held everything. A quick trip to Galveston Island with my collectors and good friends was absolutely lovely. They even bought me a bouquet of wildflowers from Moon Dog Farms, as well as a scrumptious lunch at Katie’s Seafood House – the new restaurant adjacent to Katie’s Seafood Market, where the fish is so fresh they’ll tell you what boat it came off that day. I also got new Melissa shoes at Tangerine, a new skirt, and a new book on the Kempner family which I will read for research.
You might wonder where the Turkish carpets came into play. That was later, in Houston, and quite a different story.
