Charmed, I'm sure.

Finally put the charms I've collected on my charm bracelet. I still need re-enforcement loops, but it's really nice to see them all together! I had some from a roadtrip from a few years ago when we went up to Niagra Falls (pre blog! Weird!), and one from The Oregon Shakespeare Festival. 

Most are from the road trip over the summer, which include: Wall Drug cowboy, Colorado State, Park Ranger from Yellowstone, Kansas State, Laura Ingalls home, Titanic Exhibit, Cowboy hat from Deadwood, Mt.Rushmore, Laura Ingalls Homestead, Brandon Missouri, and Wyoming landscape.

Oh god I never realized how creepy the Mt Rushmore charm is until now. Look at Abe! He looks like he's going to eat your soul!

I love it! I've wanted one for awhile but have ridiculously tiny wrists :( What are reinforcing loops?

Rubey, you could easily take out some loops and make it shorter, you deserve a charm bracelet!

I don't know what they're actually called, but just extra loops in addition to the loops the charms came with for extra safety. Some people use a tiny welding tool to melt the gap shut.

So lovely, I wish I had thought about getting one when in the US last summer! I think it's great to have a collection of wherever you went to, with you, at all times...

What a cute bracelet, but have to agree the Mt Rushmore one is truly creepy!

This is lovely. I wish you could buy charms like this in the UK. All you can do here is buy a chain and then charms in jewellery shops. You can buy keyrings and stuff from tourist attractions, but not charms! x

This is awesome, the Mt Rushmore charm is so cool, but yes slightly evil looking! :)

So sweet! I recently found the charm bracelet my grandmother gave me for my 16th birthday. She gave me a charm every year until she died. Beautiful to have memories on your wrist.

My husband got me a blank chain bracelet last year, and I've been ever-so-slowly adding charms as I find them! (Which is a bit hard at times--most places don't seem to bother with them anymore! :/) I also inherited my maternal grandmother's charm bracelet, so I enjoy switching back and forth between the two I have. I'm looking forward to adding a few more to mine this year (if I can...) when we do some local sightseeing here! The more full, the better, imho! ;)

How great! I love charm bracelets!

I think it is perfect for Abe to be creepy. It can remind us of those Black Hills and being scared driving at night and on that pig tail road and tunnels.
Ley's go get more!

I love this. I'm totally inspired to start my own little charm bracelet. It's such a wonderful collection of memories to keep with you all the time.
XOXO

Love all the charms (I live in Wyoming over by Yellowstone and South Dakota, so it was especially interesting to see those charms. Now I'll have to be on the look out for some the next time I'm in the park!)

Aliya said...

Oh how lovely! I lOVE charm bracelets but usually can never find charms I like. I make do with vintage badges or little trinkets that I (try to) turn into charms in my free time. The Titanic charm is so nice!
