Imagine this scenario…
You have just been out walking in the freezing cold, sub-zero temperatures. You are chilled to the bone. You walk into your warm, cozy lounge. The open fire is blazing away. Your loved one pulls your favourite armchair closer to the fire and says…here, warm yourself up. I’ll make you a mug of steamy hot chocolate.
This gives you a warm glow and but particularly evokes a positive feeling that, ‘warms up the cockles of your heart’. It started me thinking about where the phrase, ‘cockles of your heart’, comes from? What are its origins? Is there any historical significance?
One of the meanings of ‘cockles’ is a reference to the chambers of the heart. There are four chambers in the heart, two atria and two ventricles. The heart has always related to emotions, especially love, excitement and fear. This is probably because when we feel a strong emotion, we feel our heart thumping and beating faster. Therefore, when something ‘warms the cockles of your heart’, it is a reference to something pleasant that makes our heart beat faster and makes us feel good. The earliest reference to this phrase can be traced back to the 17 th century.
The excellent great value fireside range, at Brilliant Wall Art, will certainly ‘warm the cockles of your heart’. Perhaps it will not evoke feelings of love, that is a big ask for Brilliant Wall Art, but take a look at our online fireside and metal wall art range, it will certainly excite your ‘cockles’, giving you a warm feeling.
