Day 2 of GIVE-A-WAY

Hi Everyone! I was sort of surprised yesterday at the lack of response to this give-a-way. Let me try and clarify a few things. First of all, you don't have to be a bride to enter this give-a-way and you don't even have to know anyone getting married! These are sterling silver charms and would be perfect for a charm bracelet or beautiful on a sterling necklace! Did anyone have a charm bracelet when they were a kid? I know that I did and it was loaded with these charms! What a great gift to give a young girl or to add to your own bracelet!

I didn't realize there were so many choices! We did it for my sister's wedding and just had a few standard ones. I agree that it is such a fun tradition!

I am commenting, I follow, I will add to the sidebar, and I will try to get a pic from my sis, but no digital pics back then, so who knows :)
