If you've got something to say (or display!), then you can't find a more ebullient billboard than a flag.  Whether proclaiming love of country, announcing a sale, or gussying up a front yard garden, these colorful rectangles of (often polyester, oh, how I love thee) fabric must be what that guy had in mind when he said a picture's worth a thousand words.  So it should come as no surprise that the only pics I snapped while in New York last Saturday were of the flags flanking Rockefeller Center.  (To be fair, 30 Rock [ahem, the Comcast Building] was one of the few uncongested, and therefore more photo-friendly, spots I traversed, having spent most of the day elbowing my way through the wild terrain of Times Square.)

That's where the flag tie-ins (fly-ins?) end, I'm afraid, as this post's necklaces are a motley tangle of color and randomness.  Not unlike, come to think of it, the melting pot masses crowding NYC's streets.  Which just goes to show that where there's a will, there's a (word/image/whatever/I've-lost-count-by-now-and-don't-much-care) . . . play.

Gotta love a good necklace and the pretty rose one is in my fave colour of blue. The elephant is gorgeous too.
