A good sign

Well, I’d say it is 😉

This is the custom-made sign for my tarot and (future) astrology readings. It is an outstanding work of art and craftsmanship, created by hand by a local sign writer. I have been sworn to secrecy to not reveal his name, since he has a big backlog to catch up on (and you can see why), and he can’t take on any more requests.

The middle black section is chalk paint, so I can write on it the times, prices, quote of the day or anything else that strikes my fancy. I need to do it justice and take a better photo, really.

There are two things that make it even better. The first, is the actual material: a Council “No camping” aluminium sign, which I assure you was acquired legally. Honest! Every extra bit to help recycle counts 🙂

And the second…

WO sign post

The base! How stunning is that?!! It is a buttress root from my partner’s dad, which he had kept in a shed for a while. Well I’m pretty chuffed with the whole thing.

So there you go – thought I’d share this since I absolutely love it. After all, a tarot reader does need a good sign 😉

Wishing everyone a beautiful week ahead. Many blessings,

    That is wonderful! Is this to take to festivals where you read, or outside shops or your own home?

      Thank you – yes I do take it to festivals, and I would also like to display it outside my tarot studio very soon. One day, when I’m old and wise and silver haired, I shall frame it and hang it up on a wall, and it will fill me with so many amazing memories 🙂

      Thank you Megan, I am rather fond of custom handmade crafts (as opposed to the digital kind). Will be treasuring this forever. Blessings.

    Beautiful oldsy-worldsy feel to it Monica. Nice touch….the reused ‘No Camping’ sign too. 🙂 How poignant that what holds it up is that beautiful buttress root from your Dad in law! Arohanui…Kim

      Yes Kim, indeed. A part of Ron will travel with us forever. I’m sure his spirit was at Wintermoon having a fat merry time alongside us 😉 Blessings.

    I love it. It IS a good sign. You are really putting yourself into this in such a beautiful way. Congrats! I think you’re approaching your 1/10 year a little more vigorously than I am. I salute you! Xoxoxox
