Home Sweet Home

©McCracken & Worthington

Being based in Iron Age Brittany among the La Tène Celts, this may not be what most of us today would consider a luxurious home.  Still, I hope the feeling of this House is still clear - a place of family, shelter, and a nice bit of real estate :)

The shields outside suggest protection, and perhaps also the willingness of many to defend each other - an aspect of security and family.  I was going to say "brotherhood", but of course the celtic women were well known warriors, too!

The trough shows that, to the degree possible, they are making this a comfortable as well as safe place to live.  Not exactly all mod cons, but having water without needing to leave the safety of the village was worth something!

So, welcome to the Celtic Lenormand House...

    1. Well, not everyone will think that's a good thing... I hope that, so long as the cards are clear and readable traditionally, some folks will enjoy this alternative perspective :)

  3. In response to the message up there ... can't reply there for some reason ...

    I think it's good to try something different. Not everyone will like it, but lots will. I think it is refreshing. Besides, who wants another Lenormand the same as all the rest, eh? Keep it up! ;)

    1. Hi PLN,
      Thanks for the support! :) I'm hoping the deck will add something new, while still having enough of the traditional to be easily readable. It's all about balance, right?
