Do you enjoy fantasy, I mean dreaming of magical times long gone. Finding treasure that is all yours. Just for the beauty not for the selling. Well, dream of Celtic times and enjoy some Celtic Styles..........
Here are a few hair styles
The red hair is very Celtic I think
Kelts were an ethno-linguistic group of tribal societies in Iron Age and Medieval Europe who spoke Celtic languages and had a similar culture. We think of Ireland, Scotland and the British people of those times. It is not a nationality, its more and ethnicity I think.
They are much romanticized in movies.
The women had to be tough. While maybe not all were warriors there had to be a fair share of them. Again, they may not have looked as Hollywood portrays them but I thing their strength and equality were much like this.
Back in the days of Bodicea who was indeed a Warrior Queen, I am sure for survival alone in those days they had to have some fighting skills. The tribes had to share their skills so maybe (who knows) the younger unmarried women or those not having children would fight with the men. Maybe not in the extreme but I am sure that when it comes to defending hearth and home most woman will fight.
They were an artistic people. We know that because of what they left behind made in gold. Torcs and broaches, things like that have been found in many farmers fields. This is not a genuine example but I would wear it............the ivy is Pagan and I can imagine it being a symbol found in their designs. Along with the Celtic cross
modern day designs with the Celtic theme are popular at Ren Fairs and things to do with Fairy followers and Fantasy clothes. They are beautiful and I think can be worn in every day life. Why not?
More hair styles
Well I would love to show more but its hard to find really nice legitimate pictures of clothing, so this is mainly fantasy but well, who doesn't enjoy a little fantasy.?
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
