A year ago, with the passing of Zsa Zsa Gabor I felt a ping and was reminded of my grandfather. The memory of watching Green Acres and other shows she would make guest appearance in while sitting along side my Hungarian Grandfather. He would make comments or criticize Ms. Gabor, (I never knew why he felt so strongly about the 3 sisters) but to me she was glamorous. I clearly remember thinking how I loved the jewelry and furs she wore and wished to have some like that one day.
So, the news of her Harry Winston necklace going up for auction allowed for me to go back and fondly think of my grandfather and once again how much I would love a necklace like that. While it's certainly not attainable for myself (or most of us), I am grateful for the memory, the appreciation and the continued wishful thinking.
Hope you enjoy the read.
