Mrs. Mellon's Pillow

The Point of It All talks about Bunny Mellon's estate sale and the pillow that was a big hit on their blog.

You can get a better glimpse of Bunny's pillow here, plus an idea of her personal style.

She and Mr. Mellon were very very popular in this area. Oak Spring Farm is perhaps an hour's drive over the mountain from Chilly Hollow, so many of the folks who did work for them live in this area. They all loved the Mellons who were very good to their employees, something of a rarity among the very rich in that area. Judged according to the pillow's rule, they were Somebody Indeed.
