Luck O’ The Irish

Sorry about the drive-by post today, but I’m totally swamped with paying work. Which I am lucky to have.

Another thing I’m lucky to have is this Victorian-era Connemara Marble horseshoe brooch. In the olden times, this kind of brooch was a popular souvenir to bring back from one’s trip to the Emerald Isle. The 19th century folk were also very fond of lucky symbols like the horseshoe.
