May a little bit o’ the Irish grace your day …

On this, the celebration of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, I wish you all …

A world of wishes at your command
God and his angels close at hand
Friends and family their love impart,
And Irish blessings in you heart.

Not being Irish myself, although I do admit to adding an O’ before my last name every March 17th and enjoying a pint or two of green beer, I do have some Celtic heritage from the other side of the pond (Wales and Scotland).  And I believe it’s that Celtic heritage that has fed my love of the Celtic knot. There is just something about the never-ending knot that inspires me. 


I love the puzzle of it, the romance of it and the symbolism of it. 

One of my current projects  (which I hope to be posting more about soon) has a small carving that resembles a Celtic knot which was one of the features that drew me to it.

Here are some other inspiration pics I’ve uncovered ….

Which is your favourite ???


  1. Hard to choose, but I think the bookcase and the bracelet are my favs.

  2. I love Celtic knots too -- they're so intriguing :-)

    The guitar is really cool.

    Hurry up and get that project done so we can see it!!

    BTW, I posted my kitchen makeover a couple of days ago -- it's finally finished!! Well, 99% finished, but that's close enough :-)


  3. I've always loved celtic knots... in fact, when Kelly and I first started DesignTies we used a celtic knot to represent "tied" together in design. Yep... corny!! HaHa!! I'm loving antique buffet, btw.


Talk to me ...
