so what are these little luck/wish charms???
so some "blackle-ing", yes "blackle-ing" (get GREEN people) revealed some of the basics...
- they are made in Bahia, Brazil
- they are wish ribbions or "fitas" in Portuguese
- the pharse on them which means In Remembrance of the Savior of Bahia or Souvenir from the God of Bahia
- they are tied a special way...with 3 knots for 3 wishes
**Senor do Bonfim is another term for Jesus**
the ones my friend purchased proceeds go to helping a church/orphanage in Brazil. they've been showing up on alot of "celebs" lately so i guess you could consider them a trend but...you know me...
Brazilian wishessss & ♥
