Genealogy meets home design

I have always been a huge fan of Lucille Ball. I grew up watching reruns of I Love Lucy and The Lucy show. My biological maternal grandfather’s family is from Jamestown, N.Y. (her hometown) so I was secretly hoping that there was a connection there, but there wasn’t one.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that we are distantly related on my biological father’s side! It made my week, I won’t lie. So now I’m wanting to start collecting things with her on it. I’m not a big collector normally because I hate clutter, but I’m having to get over that with three kids.


I’m thinking about making my kitchen/dining room into a 1950s style and decorating it with Lucy memorabilia. That way it all ties in.

Are you related to anyone famous? Who or who would you like to be related to? Comment below!
