Charmed

Inspired by a vintage charm bracelet I found in aNew York City flea market, I have renewed my love for charm bracelets! I purchased this book, called Charmed Bracelets by Tracey Zabar for just a few dollars from Amazon. It's really lovely. The pictures are gorgeous, and it's well-written. I highly recommend it for your own bookshelf!

"...the most irresistable and alluring thing about a charm bracelet is it's ability to tell a story unique to it's owner. Consider a charm bracelet 'history on a wrist' - there is nothing more personal or symbolic. Laden with tiny figurines, fond remembrances, and sweet forget-me-nots collected over the years, charm bracelets chronicle small moments in a life lived. Truly, to wear one is to wear your history upon your sleeve."


Have a great week!

I love charm bracelets. The first one I ever had was a gift from my mom - it was hers when she was a little girl and now I am wondering where I put it...oh I have to go look now!

Hugs,
