Last week for Show and Tell one of the participants showed her charm bracelet. I thought I would do that also this week. The first charm bracelet was started by my mother when I was in High School. There is a typewriter, piano, clarinet, band, a car!, sweet 16, and some from travels to Henry Ford Museum, Merrimek Caverns, etc. I wore this bracelet quite a bit when pullover sweaters were all the rage!
This bracelet was my mom's. She always wore gold. It has charms that meant things in her life.
This bracelet started when I graduated and then married. But by then they were not so popular anymore.
But everything comes back again! This is the bracelet I made while on my Mexican Riviera cruise. I got a charm from each of the islands. Sea horse for Puerta Villarta, the anchor for the ship, crocodile for Ixtapa, Sombrero for Alcapulco, another Villarta, Iguana for the iguana I held! in Puerta Villarta and the Sea Lion for Cabo San Lucas!
I only wish I had thought of this when I was in Hawaii, although, sometime I will have to show my ALOHA bracelet.
I love bracelets. When I worked in the office and they would depict me in anything, I always was drawn with a bracelet on!
Don't forget to stop by No Place Like Home for more Show and Tell's.
Before I close today, I wanted to post my award from Alex. She sent this to me before her surgery. It is a very special award and I am so happy to have received it!
