I feel a deep connection with my Celtic heritage, and through years of meditation practice and communing with kindred spirits, I accept the way I feel when I see traditional Celtic symbols and designs on jewellery and soft furnishings. These symbols bring back memories of past lives, a different generation and an old life that is far removed from the world I inhabit now.
It is important that I hold on to some of these Celtic memories, and I like to do this by bringing decorative throws and rugs, and other soft furnishings, into my home. One example is this beautifully detailed Tree of Life Celtic Throw, available from the English Heritage shop. Yes, it rather expensive, but you get what you pay for at the end of the day. It would make a beautiful, spiritual accessory to my home meditation space.
For something a little more affordable, and eco-friendly, how about this recycled wool throw/picnic blanket? It looks very cosy, and is versatile because you can use it as a blanket throw when you want to snuggle up on the sofa at home or in your camper van, or you can take it on picnics and outings. And while we are on the subject of picnics, and planning family daytrips when the weather warms up, I may have to invest in the English Heritage Waterproof Wool Picnic Blanket. Our old picnic rug is rather battered after years of use…

I love Celtic designs too. But my favourite EH products are the medieval tapestry hangings and cushion covers. I particularly love The Lady and the Unicorn tapestry. But I’m happy just to browse around an EH giftshop and also try their free samples of wines, liqueurs and sweet spreads and conserves!
Ooh yes, the wines and conserves are rather delicious! 🙂
I confess that I find most gift shops full of useless tat, often overpriced tat at that. But EH shops win over the National Trust ones and I do agree that the tapestries are good – provided you have a suitable medieval hall to hang them in. And the wines, of course!
Well, I am working on that… 😉
