Auntie had lots and lots of jewelry.
She’d given Vesta several jewelry boxes and told her to take what she wanted.
Auntie also had exquisite, eclectic taste.
Velma chose a few items and put the box away.
She would think on it and come back to it.
The pieces she chose represented the travels and adventures that Auntie had,
the things that served as models to Vesta
when she was growing up,
watching her glamorous exciting aunt.
