Review of Anne Stoke's Gothic Tarot Deck

Today I want to review Anne Stoke's tarot deck that also came in the mail yesteday :) When I saw this deck online I knew I wanted it just because of the at art work. I have seen a few reviews on these deck, some like it and some doesn't. I also came a cross someone called this a novelty deck, took some pictures, smashed into a so-called tarot deck and told people not to buy that unless you wanted a novelty deck. I think that was a bit cruel, but that is just my opinion.

These tarot cards doesn't have the tradional pictures, but then again that is the charm of tarot because there are so many to choose from:) I live in a place where we don't have shop who sells insence or tarot or crystals, so if I want to have these things I need to order them online.

Tarot review of Rider Waite Tarot

It shouldn't be any problems to read the pictures since the pictures haven't been changed. This is a big deck and I have big han…

Topic of the day: Runes

Hello fairies :)
Today I want to talk a bit of runes.
I have always been interested in runes, vikings and Norse Mythology because it is a part of the Scandinavian history and Norwegian folklore.

I was searching on Ebay for runes, but I didn't want a set of runes like everybody elses. So I thought i would go to the beach find myself 24 stones... but it is winter and our beach is covered in snow and ice, I don't think so. I could cut off a branch... Did I mentioned it was winter, we have snow and we have few plus degrees? I have to forget those plans for another few months and let the trees come into summer mode first :)

LIGHTBULB!!!! I have few decorative stones that I have around candle lights, so I could use them. I get to use something personal and I didn't spend a lot of money:) yay.

What I did was separate the clear one from the purple... and suddenly I had two sets of runes. I took a super thin paintbush and painted the symbols with my gold nail polish just because I…
