Celtic Knots Attempt

Continuing on with the "A Holiday Haven" St. Pat's Party, I decided to try my hand at


Let's see how I did...

 This is my latest design that I free handed from the base design below.
 Before that, I was quite happy that I managed to make my own celtic clover knot! My favorite!
 This one below is the predecessor of the clover knot. I was getting bored from trying when I realized what I did after. Eureka!
 Before that, I managed to copy this from a YouTube site featuring different celtic knot designs. Cool!
 And of course, I had to start somewhere and these below were my first four decent ones. Believe you me, I couldn't do any for the first few days watching anyone on YT doing tutorials on this. Then, it just clicked! Just in time for St. Pat's!

This party is getting my pretend Irish blood pumping for more ideas! I even lucked out tonight in finding 2 silver plated with gems, 8x10 picture frames that I can use to tie in my next craft for my fireplace! Will feature those later on. Tomorrow will be what I found on my own Office clipart collection!

See you at your blog!

You didn't think I'd end without some...

TABLESCAPING IDEAS: (Brain asked, "did you?") Immersing yourself in another cultural holiday is a great way to stretch your skills and your appreciation for said culture. Therefore, think like that country's people and imagine how they would set their table for such a holiday, and then... stamp it with your own style!


  1. Wow! You certainly are talented to teach yourself how to draw these Celtic Knots. Such a beautiful form of artwork.

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my St. Patrick's Day postcards.


    1. Thank you, Debra! I appreciate the comment! Yep, I'm still obsessed... lol

  2. This is talent! Wonderfully done and so many things can be made from this knowledge! Thanks for adding this to the party, I may just have to try one and see if I walk away shaking my head (cause I think I would) :) I am sharing this amazing post on pinterest and twitter.

  3. Love the designs.

    Happy St Patrick's Day from N Ireland.

HELLO AND WELCOME to this blog dedicated to my obsession of tablescapes, and ONLY TABLESCAPES!
That means that whatever I post will be redirected to tablescapes or you will see tablescapes or the dishes and glassware that I used AND wish to use.
I hope you like you what you see; but you can't do that unless you take the tour- the TABLESCAPE TOUR that's on the side bar! I'd also love to take you on my adventures on finding great dinnerwares to display and use while leaving some serious change in your pocket, so stay a while and see all of my great deals!
