Toledo is known for its Damasquinado or Damasquina (in English, Damascene). It's the art of decorating steel with threads of gold and silver — and also known as Toledo Gold. Toledo is famous for this handicraft, which is used on everything from swords (Toledo steel), knives, scissors, and other sharp instruments I try to avoid; as well as for jewelry, platters, art, and much more.
Judy bought herself a watch with a beautifully intricate bracelet band, as well as a couple of pairs of exquisite scissors for sewing.
I bought myself a wrist band/bracelet (pulsera in Spanish) and a couple of pairs of earrings.
The earrings are for the two holes in my left ear that My Mother The Dowager Duchess forbade me to pierce in 1994 (when I was 40). Months later, the first time she saw me with my ear pierced, she complained that my earrings were too small!

But I'm not as bad as Judyshannonstreetwhat. She bought a box of mazapan and said she was going to give it to Tynan and Elena (Note: Not share with, give to).
A few days later, Judy admitted the plan had changed since there wasn't much left in the box.
The reason? "Well, I was worried it wouldn't stay fresh after it was opened."

I THEN ALSO WORRIED IT WOULD LOSE ITS FRESHNESS.
Because I love Laura Nyro and because she says "marzipan" around 4 minutes and 12 seconds into this 5-minute and 7-second song...
