Wowzer, that's the most loaded charm bracelet I've ever seen! Pretty cool!

Wow! I love it! I see a starfish, a light house and TEXAS - some of my favorite things.


Love your charm bracelet as your banner...signature Joanne! Beautiful!


LOVE your new header! Such a cute idea!


OOOOH! SWEET! I love it ... Is there an empty link? Your not to late. I put your name in the hopper and will post your link!

Thanks for attending and participating in my little charm school!

Hey! That looks like mine! I think we have some same or similiar charms. Don't you love it?!!!




I love the charm bracelet as your banner! I also think it's a great idea to write down all the stories behind each one. Your grandchildren and beyond will treasure those stories.

Hi Joanne - I met you at the Siesta Fiesta and we compared charm bracelets.... The website I mentioned to you is BlueMud - they have great selection and pricing on sterling silver charms, just in case you are looking to add more to your terrific bracelet!

I wanted to ask about Girl Scout - I saw this was listed in your "what I am doing this Fall" on the LPM blog... My friend Judy and I lead a mixed Jr/Cadette Girl Scout troop - about 10 girls in grades 4 through 6. I'm always looking for ideas for things we can do, in particular service projects. Do you post anywhere about what you are doing with your troop???



So I'm a little late reading your blog entry, but WOW, what a great and memorable gift for my oldest daughter who turns 9 this Tuesday - she was born on 9/9/99. Your entry from August 2007 answered all my questions on where to find those quirky charms and bracelets too - I guess I better start shopping quick!

Thanks Joanne!
