WASP Wednesday

I've always wanted to share my charm bracelet as I'm obsessed with others and why/what's on them. Where they got their charms and what they mean. But before I do I have to introduce you to my Aunt--Main Line Photo Mom. She started a beautiful blog CLICK HERE!!!!  She isn't even my aunt, and really she is my husbands cousin, but she goes out of her way to be so kind to me, I just love her. Of all of my "family," besides my parents she has been SUPER supportive of my writing career. Check her out and tell her I sent you.

Of course I have the obligatory monogrammed discs with my marriage, and childrens births. I'll start on the left with a few of the more interesting pieces: the crab is my birth sign--I also like eating them, panther with ruby eyes (gift from someone other than Husband--shhhhhh), Kat key island charm because my grand mother used to live there, a sail boat, a charm that has a book on it with my title and publishing date, tennis racket (like surfing I do it, not well and only with an instructor). What's on your charm bracelet?

  3. I am obsessed with your charm bracelet I LOVE all of the gold discs! I got my grandmother’s charm bracelet when she passed away. I always remember asking her what each charm meant when I was a little girl...I would never get sick of hearing the stories. I am also a cancer and like to eat them too! xx

  5. Hmm...let me think...on my charm bracelet. I'm not wearing so I have to picture it in my head. A basketball for my son, a gymnast for my daughter, a crown commemorating my year as Mrs. Missouri, a jumpine horse for riding English, and cowboy boots for riding Western, a microphone, and a house. Oh and my dream vehicle. A vintage truck charm.

  6. Your bracelet is so cute! I absolutely adore mine and wear it every day. It's actually my mom's bracelet with a few of her charms including a jade elephant, a mother disc and a little girl head sillouette with my name and birthdate engraved. I also have baby shoes for each of my four kidlets with their names and birthdates engraved on the bottom. The shoes also sport their birthstones. Thanks for such a fun post!!

  12. Ah, I love charm bracelets - I have one that my mom started me when I was little, so I've been collecting charms from various places we visited and celebrations in my life for over 20 years! I did have to upgrade to a larger bracelet, but I passed my original bracelet down to my youngest cousin with a new charm so she could start her own :)

  19. What a fun post and I just took my bracelet to add a my daughter's baby locket. I have two sillouettes with dates for both my girls, sand dollar and shell (grew up at the beach), captiva flipflops, stingray, (vacation memories), baby necklace charm with pearl, cactus from incentive trip to AZ, Mexican coin, sombero, and pyramid all from trips to Mexico, my sorority Arrow, my sorority lavalere, a heart from a great friends wedding and my daddy's SAE pin, which is my favorite, and I'm going to add a Girl Scout pin.
    Great post and I love your book charm with your date. Cheers, MSR
