My friend, Goth Gardener, did a post yesterday about National Jewelry Day. This reminded me that I had my own jewelry post in mind, to use a photo that I've had queued up in my photo file for a while. This photo:
Modern charm bracelets are a big trend now ... mine is old-school, with charms that represent things that are important to me, collected over the years. Let's take a minute to get to know me better, via the charms on my bracelet, starting at the top and working our way counter-clockwise.
Watering Can ... for my love of gardening. Gardening used to be my hobby, then it became a profession, and now it is my way of life.
US Capital ... because I live near there.
Four-poster Bed ... represents the love of my life ... married to him for 37 years, come July.
Baby Carriage ... for our three now-grown daughters.
Squirrel ... my spirit animal. Squirrels gather things, lose them, and are awfully cute.
Leaning Tower of Pisa ... I lived near Pisa when I was in elementary school.
Camera ... self explanatory. For as long as I can remember, I have loved to take photographs.
Heidelberg Castle and Coat of Arms. I consider Heidelberg to be my second adopted home town. Lived there for three years in the late 1970s. It holds a very special place in my heart.
Perkeo ... famous Heidelberg character.
Windmill ... souvenir from a trip to the Netherlands.
Beer stein ... another Heidelberg memento.
Computer. Computers have been a part of my life since I was a child, because my dad was a computer guy, and so is my husband. With the introduction of public access to the Internet, and all its opportunities to connect with people all over the world, the computer has made my life so much richer.
