Two new decks (and some happy odds and ends)


I was happy to find a copy of The Green Man Tree Oracle at a convention Sunday in London. I have been thinking of buying this deck for a long time. It is very lovely. Will Worthington painted it using egg tempera on gesso-coated wood, the same technique he used for Druidcraft, one of the loveliest decks around. This deck will be treasured, even though I am not such a fan of John Matthews, and most likely will not use the guidebook much. 


The other find surprised me Monday afternoon. I found Animal Powers: Meditation Kit by Zerner-Farber in the Works today for £4.99. Totally unexpected, I bought it and find the cards very pleasant. The kit also contains a cardboard easel for propping the extremely oversized card upon during meditation, as well as guidebook, a little amulet and a meditation CD. Not back for a fiver, I am looking forward to trying this out, particularly the animals I already feel affinity with, such as Rabbit and Dog.


In addition, my husband, who has a small sideline dealing in collectible ephemera, had some odds-and-ends tea cards from around the 1970s, and he offered me a few from an incomplete set about British trees: English elm, English oak, Common Lime, Rowan, and Hawthorn. I trimmed the edges a bit and rounded the corners and now they're mine. How nice!

So overall, a great weekend for cards...I won't mention the Wicca Moon I ordered Monday evening (thanks to Chloe of Inner Whispers' subtle and adept enabling!!) :D

  1. Ooh, the Animal Meditation Kit looks lovely, too! It's available new on amazon for seven quid, so still not bad... You'll have to let us know how you get on with the CD etc :)

    And how great that one of the cards hubby got you is the Rowan ;)
