These are Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling cards, we all had a set of them growing up. You could tell your friends fortunes with these and not get into the scary world of Tarot : )
You could also play a mean game of solitaire so they’re quite versatile.
For the final day of Halloween
madness fun we decided to set up our own Fortune Telling tent in the backyard -
and it’s made entirely out of tablecloths!
I have a *few* of these, in all kinds of colors. I made them for my wedding a few years ago so I’ve got 12 huge rounds and 12 squares in shades of purple, fuschia, reds and oranges. We literally pulled out a pile of cloths and started draping.
We had LOTS of help:
Ashton stopped by to check things out and immediately settled next to the orange cloth.
Then Minnie stopped by and ending up hanging out UNDER the chair. Meanwhile there are other cats zipping about, dodging in and out of the ‘tent’ and in general causing things to swing and sway. Kitties…
Once the novelty of hanging panels of fabric wore off we were able to get down to work. Cards were shuffled and laid out, tea was ready in the brass tea urn and a couple of very spiffy glasses were found.
All in all a fun time has been had! It gets dark earlier now, in a week we lose daylight savings time. We stayed up late to see how our tent looked after dusk -
It’s the time of Harvest Festivals and getting yards ready to sleep for the winter.
Join us as we celebrate the bounty of the season and get ready for the festivities to come. If the fur coats and big tummies on the cats and bunnies are any indication we’re in for a cold winter this year : )
Tomorrow – Dia de los Muertos
