We have twin oak trees in our front yard that my parents planted when I was 8 years old; wow, was that really 30 years ago? They were just sticks when they were planted and now they tower over our house! These beautiful trees inspire me in so many ways!
Did you know that if you wear or carry an acorn in your pocket it brings you good luck? They are symbols of immortality, protection, healing, fertility, strength, wisdom, money and longevity. Acorns placed in the window keep your home safe from harm and from being struck by lightning.
Also, did you know that if you catch a falling oak leaf you will be free from colds all winter?
Knowing this inspired me to make little acorn pendants and oak leaf hair pins for my family and friends. Doesn’t everybody need a little luck, protection and longevity in their lives?
