Swappie Blog Theme Day/ Charm bracelet

The Swap is a place online that I call home. It is a wonderful group of christian homeschoolers whom I call friends.

Anyways..... I could go on and on, but I better save that for a later post, because today Amy, suggested we have a Swappie theme blogging day........ and today the theme is Charm bracelet. But I have to hurry, because there is only 40 minutes left of today.

So here you go!!

I actually can't believe I found my jewelry box. I don't remember when I got it, but I think maybe I was in junior high.

I also don't remember when I got my charm bracelet, but I know that there is a bear charm from Yellowstone park, a whale from SeaWorld in CA and Tinkerbell from Disneyland. These were all from a vacation that we took when I was in 2nd grade. Then there are several from my trip to France, which was when I was a senior in high school...... including an Eiffel Tower!! Quite a gap between those two vacations, huh? There is also a Huck Finn charm from St. Louis, MO that I got when I was there playing (my accordian) in a music contest.

Be sure and check out the other Swappie Charm bracelets

I used to have a jewelry box like that, Laurie. I don't know what ever became of it. Maybe if I ever run across it, it will have my charm bracelet in it! ;-)

You have some neat charms, but do you always work against a deadline? Just kidding! ;-Þ

I have a jewelry box like yours, too! How funny!!

One GREAT thing about Laurie, she always comes through. :oD

Cool bracelet Laurie. I think yours is the only one which is gold toned instead of silver. I like your old jewelry box too. Yes, I had one too, and it even had a little ballerina which spun around to a tune which you could begin by winding it up.

I didn't know you played the accordian? DollyM on the swap also played one, and my fil played quite well.
Thanks for sharing your memories with us.

I like both of your bracelets! I think your charms are interesting. Your dangle bead turned out cute. I have the stuff in my stash, but I haven't gotten around to it.
