If you aren't familiar with boating, the colorful flags sported on many boats and ships each represent a letter, number and, additionally a word and a larger meaning.
I remember at the time being less than thrilled with my initial's flag - "C". I thought it was too boring.
I'm not sure what happened to my necklace but for some reason, I totally want one again. I've been researching all kinds of initial pendents and this popped into my mind again. I found these at Style Newport and they come in gold and silver and in two sizes.
I'd love to get one to represent each member of my family but I think wearing 14 charms (one for me, my husband and each of the pets) would be a bit weighty. Maybe I should go with a bracelet instead of a necklace.
How great of a pick-up opportunity would these be to wear in a bar, especially were the boating-types go. Secret signals and all that.
