Taking a look back at my charm bracelet, to remember what all the little charms were, and for what memories they bring.

These next 3 charms on my bracelet are from when we lived in Germany, back in 1972.

There is Furth, which is the town we lived in. It is in the state of Bavaria, and is right next to Nuremberg.

The 2nd charm is from Garmisch/Partenkirchen. It is a ski resort in Bavaria.

Last is one from Zugspitze. This is located by the town of Garmisch, up in the mountains. It is the highest peak in Germany, at 9,718 ft. (2,962 m). We rode a cable car up to the top, where there was a gift shop. We also walked out onto a frozen solid lake. It was so cold, I couldn’t even feel my feet.

This first photo is I think a cute mouse or rat. I’m not real sure if I bought it, or if it was given to me. I’m more leaning to it was given to me by my very good friend. This was back in high school. You know when you meet someone for the first time, and it seems you’ve known each other forever? That’s how it was, and we both felt it. Could it have been we knew each other in a former life? We thought so.  It is engraved on the back with the letters, “BC”, which is for her name. Why a mouse/rat? I have no idea now, but it must have meant something back then.

The second photo is a bat. I remember I bought this when my family visited Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. I’ve been there a couple of times, and it is an amazing cave. So, of course I had to have a charm of a bat.

The octagon shaped charm is engraved G. A. on the back. This was for a group at church that was the Girl’s Auxiliary. I don’t even remember what we did, except have meetings once in awhile. I wasn’t in it for very long, but I have the charm.

The T shaped charm is for Transcription. In school I took shorthand for a few years, and actually had a job later on where I would take dictation in shorthand, and then transcribe it back, in the form of business letters. The class was called Stenography (Steno), so I suppose you could say I was a stenographer. I wish I’d have kept it up, practicing, because I’ve forgotten most all of the shorthand symbols.

This first photo is a charm representing the Alamo, in San Antonio.

In 1968 my family took a trip there to see the World’s Fair, called Hemisfair, that was held in that city. We also visited the Alamo, and the Zoo. (I don’t know why I didn’t get a charm for those places)

We also traveled a bit more to Johnson City TX, which is the second charm photo. This city is the hometown of President Lyndon Johnson. We saw his boyhood home, and also his large estate there.

We enjoyed our vacation, and I’m glad I did get a couple of charms to add to my bracelet.

Here are the three school pennants and a charm ring I have on my bracelet. The first one is for my Jr. High, Alderson, which I attended from 7th through 9th grade. The colors of the school were blue and gold, and the mascot was the Hornet.

The next one is for my high school, Lubbock High, which I attended for my 10th grade year. The colors were black and gold, and the mascot was the Westerner.

The next is a ring for my next high school, Estacado, which I attended for 11th and 12th grade. The colors were blue and silver, and the mascot was the Matador. (sorry it didn’t show up very good)

The last one is for a school I never attended at all. It is just a charm for the town my husband’s parents lived in, Clarksville, TX. I guess I couldn’t find one other than this to represent the town.

These next two charms are to symbolize my music.

There is the Treble Clef, and Violin.

I’m not real sure that is a violin, but I guess that’s as close as could be found to buy at the time.

I played violin in the school orchestra from 6th grade through the 10th grade. We did concerts, and competitions. I enjoyed it, and still have my original violin, which I do get out and play now and again.

I’ve had this charm bracelet since I was about 16, or maybe earlier. I can’t remember exactly when I got it, but I’m pretty sure it was a birthday present from my parents.  There are a lot of charms that have been added over the years, for all kinds of occasions and memories. I’m not sure of the order of when I got the charms, but pretty close.

For a record of what they all are, for myself to remember, I thought I’d write a little about each one. Hope y’all enjoy seeing what’s on there, too. 🙂

These are the first two charms I got. There is the front and back of the first one (my name is engraved on the back). The next is the one I got for my 16th birthday.

It’s a little bit hard to get each one isolated, so I tried covering up all but the featured one. The lighting isn’t very good, but that’s all I can do. 🙂

From what I’ve been reading about charm bracelets, I’ve learned they have been worn throughout the ages. First ones were made of shells, or wood, or stones, and lots were used as a good luck charm, and to ward off evil.

People still wear them for any number of reasons, such as a hobby of collecting the charms, to remember special occasions, or even have themed ones for a special interest.

I’m glad I have this one, and also another one I will showcase later.

Do you have a charm bracelet, or have worn one in the past?
