2 games to play today......

There's so many great things going on in Blogland now and I wish I could do all of them...
just can't, of course.
I did, however, want to play the
CHARM SCHOOL SATURDAY,
hosted by LIZ at ROSE VIGNETTES............
along with PINK SATURDAY..
DUE TO LACK OF PLAYERS, LIZ DECIDED TO CANCEL THE
CHARM SCHOOL SATURDAY FOR TODAY....
check back with her NEXT Saturday to see if charmers are playing...
thanks!
*********************
My mother's CHARM BRACELET is older than I can remember....

It has my baby ring, my brother's baby ring, my little gold heart locket, pictures of my children,
birthdates on little golden heads...my brother's little gold ID bracelet...my son and daughter's little rings that I had added later.....

This little golden charmer is full of history of my family and I wear it with so much pride...
Thank you for looking at it today...
and thanks to LIZ....please stop by and see if there's more charms waiting for you.
***********************************************************

Our Pink Prayer Balloons for the Nielsons, Deena, and any others that you want to add....

Hi BJ!

I LOVE your mom's charm bracelet!! It's so precious! What a wonderful idea to put the baby rings on it. Charm bracelets were so popular when we were young and I've always loved them. I have two, one from my high school days and one from my high school sweetheart, who was my first husband that died of cancer very young. They are such treasures!

Have a great weekend! Stop by for a cup of tea if you have time, I'm having a Fall Tea Party today!

Hugs, Sherry

Liz said...

I love all the pink signs..but that bus !!! I love the piggie bus..and maybe, just maybe..pigs can fly. :)

tardevil said...

Oh BJ, that bracelet is just the sweetest little thing ever! That's a great idea too b/c I have all these charms from necklaces I had as a child, and I could put it on a bracelet, so thanks for the idea. That bus was hilarious! Now let's talk about those cupcakes. You know that icing looks delicious, don't you!? If it's homemade, you know you have to share the recipe, right? Now have a great weekend.

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Aww BJ...I had lots of comments to make about your fabulous pink Saturday post but Matthew has left me speechless. : )

Happy Pink Saturday.

jeanne said...

Hello BJ, your pink post is always fun and interesting. I love the charm bracelet and the meaning behind it. I have never had a charm bracelet. The pink signs are great. You are the best with finding things to post on the computer. Oh yeah, blue eyes, what pink shirt????

Hugs...Jeanne

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

My dear BJ, do I have to be the one to tell you that a pink taco is actually a euphemism for a certain part of the female anatomy? lol

I love that charm bracelet! Things that have so much meaning are more valuable than any jewels someone could buy!

Oh, and Matthew McConoughey!!! Thank you for including him! Woohoo!

Kady

Chris said...

Morning BJ, I'm so far behind on my comments, we had a garage sale in all of the units where we live (2000) homes and I have been so busy, TG it's over now, I can get on with my life. :) Now I'm hoping I get to go to a Christmas open house here in Blogville .Yesterday the president of the ladies club ask if I would allow my house on the Christmas tour this year. (only in our unit).
I laughed, I told her I decorated until about 2 days before Christmas. For the tour it had to be done by Dec. 5th. LOL

Hugs,
Chris

KarenHarveyCox said...

Just stopped back to say thank you for posting the badge for the Christmas Fair. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday. Karen

ksarra said...

Morning sweet friend, I enjoyed your post about spending the day with your friends. I know how fun that is!!! I LOVE pink too! Always mixed with a little of that vintage green that I love so. We are having my family reunion today, I can hardly wait! PS I found another thing we have alike, I have that exact cake plate that is in your header! And I have been wishing for a charm bracelet. I had one that was passed down to me when I was a teenager, and I wish I still had it, but like so many things I just couldn't keep it all so I got rid of it. Have a great day friend!

GABRIELA DELWORTH said...

Happy Pink Saturday!

PINK eye candy and lots of cool PINK things to see. This is a great post!

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

What a treasure your mother's charm bracelet is, BJ!

And thanks for the eye candy! ;o) Love Matthew's blue eyes but it's that voice that does me in.

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear BJ. I love that you have your mother's charm bracelet.

That pink princess pooper (outhouse) cracks me up. Oh, and I'll take those blue eyes any day. ;-)

Cori G. said...

Hello BJ,

I'm beginning to think that blue eyes on any man trip you up... hee hee! But you have to admit that those blue eyes sure are perdy! It's the whole package really.
I hope you're having a wonderful Sunday.

xo Cori

Rue said...

Bj, you are making me laugh today and I needed it! ... "Good times in there" LOL

Your charm bracelet is beautiful. I have one too from when I was a child, but it's too small now, so I gave it to Annie and she loves it :)

Have a beautiful Sunday!

love,
ruzzer

Anita said...

Great post! :) Fun pictures...

Anita said...

Hey! I just realized I have a cake stand identical to the one in your header! :) If I remember right, it even survived the tornado... I don't really know what all was salvaged, it's all buried in a storage unit that I can't start "unpacking" until we have a house! That's going to be like Christmas!

Dena ~ swaddlecottage said...

Hi BJ,

Oh I love the pink on Matthew! My son was recently doing some work at one of his houses - I kept asking if he needed a helper but he wouldn't take me with him the little brat. That one sign (Walang Tawiran Nakamamatay)...it's is in Tagalog (Philippines) and it says something like "do not cross, deadly" Fun post!!!

Hugs,
Dena

She'sSewPretty said...

I was going to say I liked the pink elephant car wash sign the best but then I saw Matthew,,,,and I just forgot about everything else....sighhhh

ginger at enchanting cottage said...

Your mothers charm is so beautiful!

Smelling Coffee said...

BJ ~ You are so funny with your pink comments! You make me smile!!!

And the charm bracelet is such a special thing. What a blessing of memories you have there.

Thanks for the reference and recomendation for the chili. I know the recipe is hard to find, so I posted it in the side bar of my blog.

Blessings to you!
