Words to LIve By

"Chic is nothing, but it is the right nothing."
English writer Patrick Kinmouth

The cufflinks above came from the antique store I haunt. My much loved aunt Betty, my father's sister, died in January, and left her many nieces and nephews a little money so I bought these cufflinks which are made out of malachite and Mexican sterling silver. They are stamped on the back and the man in the store said I could look the stamp up online and see who made them. I like a pop of color, a dot of color, on a shirt cuff. They're not meant to match anything. Here, the blue shirt and grey jacket and green cuff link complement each other; I'm not big on matching. When I wear them I think of Betty.
