  1. Thank you! Yes, it's from a limited edition of 50. The Antiquarian Tarot is a deck I already have (standard size and large). And after many years of collecting back-ups, I finally stopped a couple of years ago. But... Gilded edges!
  2. At long last!! A pristine Antiquarian Tarot Gold landed on my doorstep this morning! This one is number 12 of 50. The card stock is smooth and the edges are gilded gold. Honestly, I didn't think I'd ever have one since I missed out on Maree Bento's issue of it in 2017. But eBay and my youngest son came to my rescue. Woo hoo!!!
  3. I'm in with the Antiquarian Tarot and Destroyed Dondorf Lenormand this week. Thank you, VG
  4. The Steele Wizard Tarot has been around since 2006. I found my deck about that time in a metaphysical book store that no longer exists. I hadn't seen it before and bought it based on the grand heavy 2-piece box -- the bottom in particular. Over the years, I've wished the cards weren't so large and thought about trimming them. But I do love a black border and so never pull out the scissors. Today, I'm trying a corner-riffle technique that is working very well. This is the first image I've uploaded in awhile. I thought we were limited on size, but the system accepted the whole 2.4 mb. I'll be interested (with a little trepidation) to see what it looks like...
  5. @Katie I got rid of the Faerie Tarot by Nathalie Hertz three times before I finally realized that I love it. Now, I really can't remember what was bothering me about it. The scenic borders are fabulous. PS: And I never realized that all of the ladies in the 4's have their eyes closed. Great observation!
  6. I'd like to jump in with the Steele Wizard Tarot this week. It has been a year or two since I last worked with it. Thank you, VG
  7. Please sign me up: TdM - Marteau Grimaud and Flonz Lenormand I am (anxiously) awaiting delivery of the TdM Millennium Edition deck. If it arrives this week, I will switch tarot decks. Thank you, VG
  8. Please sign me up with the CBD Tarot de Marseille and Dondorf Lenormand (1878, unrestored). Thank you, VG
  9. For those who love Duck Soup's Tarot of the Zirkus Magi, like I do, I just discovered "American Experience: The Circus" on Netflix. Admittedly, I'm only 5 minutes into it, but I'm hugely happy so far. https://www.netflix.com/title/81076042
  10. Please sign me up with the Daveluy Lenormand deck. This week, I'm focusing on getting through The Complete Lenormand Oracle Handbook (Caitlin Matthews) and completing all of the practices. Thank you, VG
  11. I really like to have a playing card insert or at least a notation, because I don't know if I will ever have all 36 cards memorized. So, if it's a deck I like a lot, I use a silver or gold Sharpie to make the notation. Thank you for sharing your research and comments @HOLMES The Mystery Secrets Lenormand Oracle is one I'd love to have, but this is the one I'd want first (from the same studio)... https://www.etsy.com/listing/612146287/victorian-lenormand-vintage-oracle-cards?ref=landingpage_similar_listing_top-3&frs=1 I just can't pass up Victorian engravings! Or Victorian anything, really...
  12. It arrived Monday aboard the blue Amazon van: The El Goliath Tarot Deck (kit). (Now, I have somebody besides the postman to stalk...)
  13. Thank you again @DanielJUK and for explaining the rationale behind the placement. I can't imagine how I would've found it on my own. And Happy Birthday to You!
  14. Thank you @DanielJUK!!! You are a scholar and a prince!
  15. Thank you @Jewel!!!! Call me stupider. I've literally been searching for my pm box all morning! PS: I've found some pretty interesting stuff along the way...
  16. I was tossed in yesterday. Thank you, Little Fang!
  17. The Page of Swords in the Picture Postcard is such a darling photo. It's my all-time favorite rendition of this Page. At first viewing, I thought the Page of Swords would be the little boy who is whispering. Not at all, according to the LWB, "The pensive little boy listens carefully to the secret shared by his friend, assured that knowledge is currency for the future." I agree totally -- it just makes more sense that the Page of Swords would be gathering intelligence rather than disseminating it.
  18. X-D So happy I finally got to use that emoji. Not me, AJ. That wasn't the type of luring I was anticipating. It's more like a pushy shoe salesman would try to reach his monthly sales goal by talking me into something that might take some explaining later (the Devil made me do it). I stayed home and cleaned house. So, the Cheerios did come in handy after all.
  19. Bodhiseed[/member] :)) I was on the fence for a long time regarding the Dearly Departed Bastard Tarot. It felt gimmicky to me. In my mind, it would offer no surprises once you got past the coffin-shape in the borders and the cool skull on the backs. However, despite my apprehension, when I had the opportunity, I traded for it. The one I have is the largest size with a matching zipper bag. And I have to admit: I LOVE IT! This deck feels massive and looks impressive -- professional even. Plus, its format and style add a certain pizazz to the spread cloth that gets a WOW even from my family, who have become accustomed to a wide variety of tarot decks parading across my table. Most importantly, it keeps things interesting with its mixture of Rider-Waite and Etteilla images. In the end, Dearly Departed surprised me after all. :biggrin:
  20. This is what I laid out for myself with the Picture Postcard this morning... The Magician ~ 2 of Cups ~ The Devil I see myself being lured into more than I bargained for. :bugeyed: Forewarned is forearmed! :biggrin: PS: Doesn't that line of cards create quite an interesting visual story?!
  21. Most days, I believe Lenormand cards actually reveal the most to me. I just can't quit tarot cards -- too beautiful.
  22. I had to look that one up, see it is by Marcia McCord. I wonder if anyone but me remembers her as the person who single handedly started the Lenormand flood and resurgence of popularity. I remember! This deck is a 2nd edition, dated 2011. Tempus fugit! Here's Marcia's blogspot for those who aren't familiar with her work... http://marciamccordtarotreader.blogspot.com/p/tarot-decks.html I love Marcia's decks and have all of them, except the Square Lenormand -- which I will have to remedy ASAP. <3
  23. I'm in with the Picture Postcard Tarot this week. I love a deck that I can riffle shuffle! Thank you, VG!
  24. Here's my 2 cents: give your friend the deck you want her to have now and replace it in your collection later. You'll probably find that it turns up for you in a used bookstore, garage sale, flea market, thrift store or antique mall -- all places where my most treasured decks have found me. (What AJ-ish/Sharyn[/member] said. :thumbsup:)
  25. Welcome Athena1111[/member] X/ Wow, that's a good question! I started out at the library. I read every book they had on tarot. Then, I bought a deck I liked the looks of at my local metaphysical store. I carried it with me everywhere, taking it out and shuffling it every chance I got, being sure to look at every card last thing at night before tucking it under my pillow. About the same time, I bought a computer, hooked it up to the internet and discovered online tarot resources. ;D Then, I found my way to Aeclectic Tarot. And now, here I am at Tarot, Tea & Me. It's a wonderful place to learn about tarot and continue learning about tarot! <3
