Devining

A custom made Ouija Board. Ouija boards are used by two people. They place their fingertips on the planchette and it moves towards the letters on the board and spells out words which have significance to one of the players.


A Pendulum Board. You hold the pendulum (which I could not find) over the board and it moves to an area on the board to answer your question. These are thought to be much more reliable than Ouija Boards.


Runes have been used since ancient times to give the users guidance.


Fortunes Telling Cards.....this set is in German, English and French.

A set of Italian tarot cards.

In Italian these are known as Tarocchini.

That's an exquisite ouija board. Is the border painted or is it inlay (pewter perhaps)?

Thery nice looking ouija board! We used a paper bottom and a glass heated up by a candle. Worked really well :-)We call it "The spirit in the glass".

You take great pictures with Your new lens!

I didn't know runes cold be made of stones ! That gives me ideas too ! Nice gold tiger eye you have there.

Love the sunflowers ! Ours are still buds.

Tarot and ouija give me the creeps... Could you explain to me how you deal with them without fear ?

Kisses, Lulu

Ouija Boards, to scary for me. Nice sunflowers, though. Check out the spooky owl on my blog. I hadn't thought of it till I looked at it just now - but, it's just so you.

I love sunflowers!

My mother had runes. I put most of them with her ashes when we put her in the ocean but I kept one. I carry it with me in my purse as a reminder of her.
