The Golden Age of Jazz Ball

Dressed for the ball in Grandma Duffy's crystal beads

Today is my what should have been my mother's 80th birthday. As I have no new pictures of her to share (she died in 1993), I'm giving my readers a picture of me taken last night dressed and ready for a ball. The beautiful crystal beads were given to me some years ago. Originally, they belonged to my mother's mother, Molly (Reid) Duffy.

Molly was given these beautiful beads back in the 1920s by my grandfather, Ven, either as a gift for their first wedding anniversary or for her 21st (I will have to ask my aunt for which). Gorgeous, aren't they?

Needles to say, we had a lovely night with friends.
