Making a Choice - Tarot boxes

Today I wasn't going to post something. I wanted day of. Yesterday my daughter and I went shopping. We had  a lot of fun together but since it’s a busy time here, I was rather tired. Making some pictures of my new stuff was all I’d planned to do. But then I drew my daily card and it was Making a Choice of the Enchanted Map Oracle Cards. It made me Laugh. Of course you can interpret this card on a very in depth level about life choices but the only thing that came to mind was me and my daughter trying to make up our mind about what to buy and what to leave in the store. J
Among other things I was lucky to find some book boxes. These are boxes that look like books. The tiny ones were precisely big enough to store a tarotdeck, the slightly larger ones, I will use to put a deck and its guidebook in perhaps with some crystals or herbs; I don’t’ really know yet  but I loved them so much and had to take them home with me.

  1. Don't you just love how the cards can be so literal sometimes, lol. The book boxes are a great find and perfect for housing your decks. :)

    1. Thanks for noticing my tarot bag. Before my neck injury I use to knit a bag for every deck I got. Sometimes I crochet them too :)

  4. It's really very pretty and it has a special value because you did it, you created it, you chose colours, yarns or threads, all made and "powered by Ellen" :) Muchas Estrellas!!!!!!!!

  6. I love these!

    I have a couple here, but never thought of using them as you have. Great idea and a wonderful thing to collect! They do look very good in multiples. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. The decks just fit perfectly and they are easy to stack. I didn't buy them for all my decks because that would be boring. I like to vary with storage possibilities.
