People strung cranberries and popcorn, starched little crocheted stars to hang, made paper chains and Metal Blade Records 40th Anniversary Shirt had glass ornaments, usually from Germany, about two inches wide, they would get old and lose their shine.

To counteract the inconvenience of a full set of long claws, it became fashionable for the Manchu women of the Qing dynasty to cultivate just one or two talons on the hands. These nails were shaped and styled so that they looked elegant rather than unwieldy and from the nineteenth century were often protected with nail guards made of gold or silver and studded with jewels.
