Isn’t she beautiful!!! She’s a bit Celtic.
And I’m kind of fascinated with Celtic things.
I’d LOVE to take her to Scotland someday! If we’re ever lucky enough to travel there, the first thing on my agenda will be to head on over to our castle for a photo shoot!
“You have a castle in Scotland?” I can hear you asking.
Well, sort of.
You see, my maiden name is Crichton. Pronounced like Michael Crichton, the author of Jurassic Park. (Oh, so fun to name drop) And I am a direct descendent of Lord William Crichton, who was Chancellor of Scotland (1439-1443 & 1448-1454). This was his castle and even though it changed hands throughout the ages, it’s still called the Crichton Castle, so I’m going with it. :) Crichton Castle Stables
Perfect place for a photo shoot don’t you think?
Someday, I’ll go there and take some pictures of Brooke in this courtyard. In the meantime, Celtic knot headbands, and the beautiful, mystical Celtic music will have to tide us over until we get there someday.
Celtic knots are full of symbolism. They represent infinity and eternity because they don’t contain beginnings or ends. In ancient times, if a gift was adorned with a Celtic knot it was thought to give the recipient longevity or good luck in new adventures.
This no-sew, T-shirt headband is made with a Shannon knot which symbolizes balanced creativity.

I’d love to know what you think!
