Bouquet Charm

I will be having my bouquet wrapped with my family's tartan. I am of Scottish heritage and my family plaid (recently made more popular by LL Bean) has always been important to me. So last fall a friend went to Scotland and purchased some ribbon in my family tartan for me to wrap around my bouquet.

In addition I just bought this:

I bought this charm (printing will be in black) from Etsy seller HomeStudio. A few things about the charm. The quote is from WWII and I am very quick to frazzle, so I love the reminder that I will hold in my hand!

Second the quote is on a Scrabble tile. A little known fact about me. I was once a competitive Scrabble player! I participated in tournaments for about 7 months, but the realized Scrabble wasn't fun anymore for me. In fact, I haven't played it in years, but I did rank as high as 637 in the world. I know, I know not only are you impressed, but you are jealous too!

Anyhoodle, I loved this little Scrabble tile for a couple reasons and am looking forward to attaching it to my bouquet!
