|A timeline of my life...Sweet 16; Dumbo from Disney World; Christmas Tree; my first Puppy.|
When I was cleaning out my jewelry box recently, I found that same charm bracelet my Mom had started for me when I was still loosing my baby teeth. It got me thinking.....Life's been full of some pretty big, and pretty cool, milestones lately.

Maybe this jewelry box cleanout was just the little reminder that I need to start keeping track of this fascinating(?) life of mine again! Maybe I should even put it on display a little...a way to remind me of everything I've accomplished.
And, with a second trip to one of my favorite places on earth coming up, I am looking forward to hunting down some more amazing vintage charms to commemorate the trip! Especially, since this trip will be with my Mom.

Vintage, enamel travel shields (Roma, Pompeii, Vaticano, etc.) & sterling silver charms
to represent each of the famous sights we saw - Roman Forum, Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica, etc.
There's still a lot of room to fill in on both these charm bracelets, but I'm looking forward to the memories and the hunting to come! And the stories that they tell.
