MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Charming …



My first charm bracelet was given to me by my parents when I was in my 20’s.  NJ and MA are for the states closest to my heart.  The telephone because apparently I was on it a lot.  Bowling pin and ball for the only ‘sport’ I actively participated in.  The typewriter because I worked as a typist in a bank.  The seahorse and shell with pearl were for my love of the ocean.  Look closely at the charm next to the seahorse…it’s a Social Security charm and actually had my SS# on the back…what were my parents thinking, we know now to keep that number hidden away in an undisclosed location.


This bracelet was started by a friend when I was maid of honor in her wedding.  Later charms were added when I turned 21… got married… and then had two little girls.


This is my travel bracelet, a nice way to remember places I visited.  Disney World, CA, Alaska, New Orleans (that’s the blue mask), Monticello, Canada, and London England to name a few.  There’s also the Rotterdam for the first cruise I took.


And of course a Martha’s Vineyard bracelet… you knew there’d be at least one right 🙂  Infact if you look closely at two of the other bracelets there are Vineyard charms on them too.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
