Carnivale: Tent 4


My dear, come.

Come into my tent.

Would you like to know what lies in your future?

Would you like to contact a loved one who has passed on?

Come, come into my tent.


The TaRat
Extra Mini Tarot Deck Featuring White Rats

Description from etsy:
The TaRat is a 78 card deck is made up of 22 major and 56 minor arcana, each with a different image of white rats. There are Swords, Cups, Pentacles and Clubs in this deck, as well as underlying themes of stars, moons and planets and some birds.

Each original card was created by Nakisha in ink and watercolor on 2.5" x 3.5" sized paper. It was designed to be a mini novelty deck, and not a full sized playing deck.

This extra mini TaRat is an *uncut*, one sheet printing showing all 78 cards. Once cut, they make 78 tiny one inch (2.5cm) cards (as shown in the photos). They will be slightly smaller if you cut away the black borders.

You can use these cards for divination, doll houses, scrap booking, embellishments, crafting, or simply frame the uncut card as a work of art.

This item was professionally printed on glossy full vibrant color card stock measuring approximately 8.5" x 11" (21.25 x 27.5cm). It is blank white on the back. It comes with a four page basic written description to each card's meaning.

Get yours at etsy for $6.

ooo, check out this pink crystal ball...

The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball
by Risa Green
Just released: September 2010

Description from the amazon:
In a world where nothing is certain, a little magic couldn't hurt...right?

When Erin Channing's favorite aunt dies, Erin is bequeathed a pink crystal ball and a set of weird instructions. Granted, Aunt Kiki (aka Aunt Kooky) always lived "outside the box." But now Erin and her two best friends are convinced that the pink crystal ball holds the key to their future-or at least the key to getting dates...

Consider Your Fate to Be Sealed . . .

-Absolute knowledge is not unlimited; let the planets be your guide to the number.

-There are sixteen ways to die, but four of them you will never see.

-The future belongs to you alone. Other voices will be disappointed.

-One rotation is as far as you can see. Only uncertainty lies beyond.
