Halloween2011 Celebrating My Birthday

Yesterday, Oct. 30th I turned 56 years young! I had a lovely weekend with my family and spent time relaxing.  I’m also taking today off with my hubby to spend time together, we are going to see the movie Puss ‘N Boots.  Hubby took me shopping for clothes over the weekend.  I was in desparate need of some sweat pants and long sleeve shirts, and a few things for work too.  All my clothes from last winter are size large and I’m now in a size small pants and medium tops.  I was thrilled to pick up two Halloween shirts, I had to give all my other Hallween shirts away last year because they were size 1X and 2X.  One new Halloween shirt is orange and says “witch in training” (pictured yesterday’s post) and the other is black with a spider web design that says “Meet Me On The Web,” (pictured below) both are just perfect for me!  We also picked up bagels from my favorite bagel shop for a birthday breakfast, and as a special treat they had pumpkin bagels and pumpkin butter to put on the bagels (yummy!).

And an added bonus, I won a blog contest on Friday, my prize is a Halloween parcel from Kallan, who you may know from The Secret Life of the American Working Witch:  A wand and dreamcatcher, both handmade at Sosanna’s closet and a $20 gift voucher to spend at Pagan Cheap Stuff. I want to thank Kallan and Lyn from Witch Blog where I read about the contest for adding an extra special pizzaz to my birthday.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Halloween,  Lady Rose

 Lady Rose, Mama Kelly, and the Gaian Tarot Lady Rose, Mama Kelly, and the Gaian Tarot

Yesterday I introduced you to my tarot collection and today I thought I would follow up with a tarot related video.  Early 2010 I purchased the collector’s edition of the Gaian Tarot Lady Rose, Mama Kelly, and the Gaian Tarot, and also bought a deck as a birthday gift for my best friend (Mama Kelly). When we got together to celebrate her birthday in June we made a little video while sitting around her kitchen table after she had opened her gifts and shared it on youtube. At about the 6:30 mark we talk about the Gaian Tarot and show some of the cards. I am posting the video here as a nice introduction so you can get to actually see and hear me (and Mama Kelly).  I’ll be doing a full review of the Gaian Tarot later on, the artwork is breathtaking and it is a wonderful deck to work with (Gaian Tarot website).

I am hoping to work out the kinks (lighting, space, etc.) to be able to do more videos at my house. I think it would be a great way to review my tarot collection (one deck per video), rather than just writing up a review and taking a photo of the decks. What do you think? Let me know if you like the idea of video reviews or would prefer photos and a written post. (Full list of my tarot decks: Tarot Collection and Museum Project)
