'Charmed' to be back!

I hadn't planned on a one-month blogging hiatus. Life just happened. Thank you to those who have visited faithfully waiting for me to get my sh*t together this summer! So how about we kick it off with some charms from a Charm Swap I participated in this past weekend?

I have a ton of old keys...but some aren't too sexy, so I decided to cut off the part that goes into the lock and then they started looking more interesting.

I added a dangle I made from an old turquoise-y shell necklace I had, a mother of pearl button and a bead along with a 'fancy' rhinestone button. Love them!
I added a key-shaped tag and I was good to go.

Here are the charms I received in return! Stunning!

And a few folks put together charm kits or provided interesting objects for displaying charms as jewelry.

Thank you, Swappers!
