Turf is a literal little piece of Ireland, dug up from the ground. It is also a little piece history, as turf has been used in Ireland for centuries.

When I was growing up in Ireland we burned turf to heat the house, and it is still used in rural Ireland today. We had a patch of bog where we “reared our own turf” ie cut, stacked and dried the turf and then brought it home to the shed, ready for use.

To my delight, you too can have your own piece of turf, thanks to the talents of a man in Co. Tyrone. He handcrafts beautiful products from the stuff we used to throw in the fire! This Turf Bless This House Horseshoe decoration is a great example of this.

There is a wedding tradition in Ireland where the bride was gifted a horseshoe for luck. If it was an actual horseshoe, this was hung up outside the front door, to have good luck come to the house. It was important to secure it upright (U shape) to hold the luck in, otherwise the good luck would fall out! And that is why this turf horseshoe is the correct way up, holding the carefully carved words “Bless This Home”, within it.

This would make a lovely little Wedding Gift or gift for a New Home.

  • Approx. 2 3/4” high
