Objects in Rearview Mirror May Appear Cooler

The new round robin has begun and I am sending out my bracelet.  It will collect some great charms along the way and come back to me loaded.  I have chosen as my theme, Christmas Carols.  The rule for this round robin is that each charm has to have something on it that we found.  We can add new beads and charms and things, but there has to be at least one thing that was not purchased.  

My starter charm is made on an anagram tile.  It has the capital letter A on the other side.  Anagrams were a fun game before scrabble.  My Mom tells me she played it a lot as a kid.  I decoupaged an old Christmas stamp onto my anagram tile.  It came from an envelope of old stamps that my Grandmother saved for me.  She used to cut the stamps off envelopes that came in the mail.  They were not all that special then, but they are antiques now.  And, of course, I added rhinestones (which really looked red last night when I strung it) and a dangling bead.  I like that you can see part of the cancellation mark and that postage is 5 cents!

Angels we have heard on high..................

Don't you wish you had joined this round robin?
