All Horseshoes Are Lucky, But Irish Horseshoes Are The Luckiest

Cherry Hill, New Jersey USA

England & France ~ April 2017

Jumped across the pond again!

I always have to stop and say hello to the horses, even in England and France :-)  These first several photos were taken in Reigate, Surrey, England on the most gorgeous little path that leads directly to a quaint charming pub called The Skimmington Castle or 'The Skim'  as the locals call it.  Had an amazing lunch, a couple of pints and made horse friends along the way.....and back again! It was a beautiful day in the English countryside.

I always look for horseshoes and shoe prints wherever I go. You'd be surprised at where they turn up! Luck is everywhere.

These two beauties were like puppies! So welcoming and friendly. I loved their sweet greeting.

Highclere Castle ~ Newbury, England

Had to throw this in! During this recent trip, was fortunate enough to visit Highclere Castle in Newbury, England. Famous in it's own right, but off the charts famous now as this is where the television show Downton Abbey was filmed. Was amazing to walk through this magnificent home with everything in it's proper place as though the Crawley Family still lived there. Absolutely loved it!

I also journeyed by way of ferry across The English Channel to the small storybook town of Clecy in Normandy, France. On the morning that we left, we bumped into these gorgeous creatures below......just had to stop for a little hello!

Ireland ~ August 2015

It's been a little while since I've blogged and have been meaning to since returning from Ireland this past August. What an amazing trip! Such a perfect way to end the summer months.

Being back in Ireland this last time was really very meaningful to me for SO MANY reasons and I am so grateful for the amazing friendships and connections I have there. Ireland and the people there give me such inspiration for my little horseshoe company! With every visit, I come back lifted and feel more creative and ready to work.

I spent time in three counties this trip, Co. Dublin, Co. Wicklow and Co. Wexford and it was truly amazing and magically beautiful. Just as you would imagine!

Enjoy these photos......take in all the gorgeousness that is......Ireland.

You Never Know.......

You never know where or when luck will present itself to you. It's always best to keep a look out for it wherever you go..........

Holidays Are For Lucky Shoes :-)

It's been quite some time since we've entered a blog....so today is the day! Winter is here, but hopefully not for too much longer. We've had our fair share of bitter cold and snowy days here in New Jersey....Brrrrrrrrrrr........we're eagerly awaiting Spring :-)

Ahhh....to be in Ireland surrounded by forty shades of green..............sigh.

Anyway, our favorite little holiday is nearly upon us and we couldn't be more excited! Lá Naomh Padraig, of course, means St Patrick's Day....and only 18 days away at this point. To us, there is no better time to own pure luck from Ireland than at this time of the year :-) Our lucky horseshoes make a magical and wonderful gift for St Patrick's Day....a little bit of Ireland to hang in your home to welcome the Feast of St Patrick would be just about as Irish as one could get :-)

Baby's Got New Shoes :-)

A happy day with a new shipment of shoes...dirty and rusted....but new shoes, nonetheless, ARE HERE! I'll be getting down and dirty cleaning them, making them sparkle and then shipping all that magical luck to whoever needs it. I LOVE my job!

A special thank you to my horse farrier and friend, Kevin McDonagh, for his AMAZING work......bless his sweet Irish heart <3

Slainte!

Spring ~ Where Are You?

I can't believe we woke up to more snow today! It's supposed to be spring and with that there's supposed to be warmer weather. We've had a tough time of it this winter. I usually prefer the colder months, but I have to admit I'm done now and ready for warm sunny days.

Just wanted to give a quick update about our next shipment of race horse shoes. They are en route and should be here to the States around 10 April. Fingers crossed! So if we don't have what you're looking for now, please check back soon. They'll be back in stock shortly.

Until then, wishing you lots of lucky days ahead!

Up and Running!

Dia Dhuit! ~ Hello!

After many many weeks, we are finally up and running! Our little company can officially say hello to the world, or "Dia Dhuit" as they say in Irish :-)

We are very pleased with how our website has turned out, but we know that it will be a constant growing and ever changing place. There is so much to do and say and photos to be shared :-) This little adventure is going to be fun :-)

Ireland is such a gorgeous country with such amazing, loving people and I felt right at home there.  Didn't mind the rain at all, which is weird because I hate the rain here at home :-) Planning my next trip back will be soon and easy. Can't wait.

We hope you take an interest in our shoes and share them with family & friends. Sharing the luck of the Irish is our purpose and goal. We would love to see all your photos of your luck hanging so please send them on and we'll share them here on our blog!

There's no such thing as too much luck ;-)

There's no such thing as too much luck ;-)

Until next time...... Slán go foill ~ Bye for now :-)
