Jones Place on the Osage Highlands
Page 6

The back porch was where the meals were taken by the hired hands.  The porch was surrounded by windows and was more like a summer house within a house than a back porch. When the meals were not being served there the tables were taken up and this left a long empty room where the children played on rainy days.

Today, one cannot enter what remains of the house without seeing  Ura May in one's mind.

Her room was painted a lovely soft dull blue. It was a color she would chose for the whole house after her marriage and when she lived there with her husband and children.

The bedspread on Ura May's bed was this same color. The fabric was silk and it was embroidered with the same color thread. Resting on the bed would be an exquisite doll. The little doll had coal black hair pulled back into a bun much like the way Velma wore her hair. She was dressed with a black velvet top on a dress of dark muted blue taffeta moray. Her painted rub red lips and the tiny eyelashes were painted on the porcelain uncolored, leaving the doll with a white complexion.

The only other decoration of the room was a row along the west wall of "pinup"  illustrations gifted to Ura May by a friend, Dano Keys.
