Trimmings for the tree

As I hang the decorations on my little tree I am thinking about Olive holidays.    That lady loved a party and the jewelry she wore was kind of elegant in an outrageous way.  It’s the kind of bracelet which will be brought out for every annual event.  As I wear it, I think of rye and ginger-ale highballs and a lampshade on the head (no kidding) .

Heavy splendour

Olive had good taste and this necklace has a timeless beauty.  It also served as a place to hold the matches for those many cigarettes smoked until dawn.  Happy partying!

Take a match from inside this pendant and strike at the bottom. Pretty and functional.
