Wooden carved sword holder

I made this sword holder many years ago but thought I would
share it on here. It took awhile to carve it but I think it turned
out pretty good. The sword is the Dragonslayer. It's baddddd....

Red Hawk feather

I have two hawks that are in my neck of the woods in the
summer who set up a nest not far from the house. One afternoon
while cutting the grass with a push mover I made my cut down
the lawn. When I turned around here was this magnifcant
hawk feather sticking right up in the grass like someone put it
there. I looked up but did not see the bird but I knew he
must have been around. Here is my attempt at painting that
feather in watercolor. I threw in a few acorns as well.

re-created but we like to bring along our celtic influences

Ancient memories?

There is a spiritual intelligence within our cells that holds
memory and wisdom. Cells that already know and
understand their ancient past and their tie to the holy
tapestry of earth and spirt.

This Blog is meant to a be fun place where my two brothers and I can post

also any web sites and information that we find interesting and would
like to pass it on. There are tons of books and some incredible Celtic
artists out there as well, be it in music or actual painters and crafts people.
