What kind of 'CHARMer' are you?
~Old School (Sterling? / Gold?)?
~ALEX & ANI ?
I am curious to know your preference in this year of 2015!
(Leave me a comment / Post a picture on your next Blog Post!!)
I don't think that there is anything in a Man's life, more personal & Full of HIS soul than his WALLET,
For a Woman, I think it is her CHARM BRACELET.
Being the 'Collector' that I am, I'm sure that it comes as NO Surprise that I am avid at adding to my Bracelet! Yes, I still enjoy my 'OLD SCHOOL' original. Though I often admire, and contribute to my Niece's 'newer/on-fad forms', I have not succumbed! My original Bracelet was given to me by my Paternal Grandmother in the Late 70's, with just a couple of 'Personal' Charms...
Since then I have turned it into a 'Travel' bracelet. I try to pick up a charm from each new State / Country I visit.

edge of Street (ie: 'in the gutter) in Ireland.
These charms are NOT the staple of Tacky-Souvenir shops as they used to be! They must be 'hunted' for!!
Occassionally I will find an old forgotten bracelet or a single charm out in 'The Wild' while saling - and I grab them (IF the $$ is right!!). Sometimes they are charms that I wasn't able to find while on location, others are charms of places on my 'Bucket List'...
...and then there are some that just make you go hmmmm....
(ie: Pan w/ Fried Egg?!?)
HOPE ALL IS WELL IN YOUR PART OF THE WORLD! I HAVE NOTHING 'NEW/OLD' TO SHOW BECAUSE OF THIS
