Word of the day-Festoon

The little used word festoon ( to adorn with) has been in my head lately since I saw it used in the Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Ideas issue, 1956. Now when I try to look for it I can’t locate it but you know I would not, could not make that up.

Instead I bring you this:

potato-masher-skirt

Other words that have caught my ear today:

Sobriquet (thanks Little Edie!)

Denizen (thanks Dyslexic Heart!)
