Up or down for luck
Even the title description for these horseshoe earrings at Back in the Saddle says it all … “Stuck on Luck Earrings.” Horseshoes are associated with the strength and reliability of the horse. The horseshoe protects your home to keep strangers away when hung above an entryway or on the wall. The “U” shape of the horseshoe holds the good luck inside. Legend has it that a horseshoe “‘pointing up” will gather your luck, whereas “pointing down” it will shower you with luck. Wear these horseshoe earrings to bring good luck wherever you go!
Water features bring fortune
Ancient civilizations believed that a token gift to the gods would keep wells from running dry. You can turn your patio or yard area into your own private oasis with a garden fountain, well or water feature that matches your style. A symbol of good fortune, decorative wishing “well” will be the focal point of your garden area.
Great luck….if you can find one!
A tiny four-leafed plant is one of the hardest good luck symbols to find. But for the Irish, that scarcity is one of the shamrock’s charms. Try it for yourself…stand in a patch of bright green clover, then start looking for the four-leafed clover known as a shamrock. Odds are, you’re going to think you see one again and again, only to find what you have in your hand is a plain old three-leafed one. Thank goodness there are beautiful Shamrock gifts like this sparkling crystal pendant. All the luck, none of the work. Sounds good to me!
