LOL! Yes - my spread cloth is folded under the cards - and I do have to shift a few things for more than three cards...

I agree. The places where you read and the things you lay out around the cards make me want to visit everyone's house and jot notes. I just light a little candle on my table and read cross legged on my bed.

I am staggered by the serenity of these tables and settings, and the beautiful ornaments and cloths. Candles even!

I have two places where I read. Looking at these snaps I realize that this may be why I don't do much reading anymore.

In the dining room, I maneuver for room with my husband's instruments, my sewing and embroidery supplies, and books. We never eat at this table but now and then I shove something over to the side so I can lay out cards.

In the basement is my drafting board, also know as The Exploding Table. I do clean it weekly and put things away, but since I have 20-odd projects going at once, material seems to drift back. The overseer is my Wayang Golek puppet Gatotkaca.

I am not a serene person, I am a splitting atom, I switch to hyperdrive when stars shine, I soar to infinite longing and exist in a Cloud Cuckoo Land of expansive creative moments, and I never live where candles are gently lit and tables have cloths.

That looks like a craft central and I just want to go over and play! Nice warm feeling about it!

Here is my ode to the Blue Moon, this evening, in which I did some oracle/pendulum work and piled up the things that needed cleansing!

<sigh> I love looking at everyone's beeeuoootiful tables and deck layouts! HearthCricket, I recognize your spread cloths as Tarot Totes, and I love the way you seem to pick them so carefully to color-coordinate with your decks! And may I say, your picture of the new Mystic Faerie layout sent me right over to Amazon to order this beauty. (And I thought I didn't want that deck!) And I just may have to order that wonderful bag from Baba Store, because the colors match perfectly!

Anyway, for me, I have plenty of spread cloths, candles, and gems (I gotta get me one of those hourglasses, though!), but my life feels so busy lately with the kids, that I usually do readings for myself whenever and whereever I find a moment. Goodness, I've been known to pull a card at a stop light if the deck is calling to me! Usually, though, I do my FTN readings at my dining room table, which is only used at holidays, and that's in front of my laptop, where I record the readings I do. I do use a spreadcloth and candles during my annual spreads I do on New Year's Eve, and that's always a nice treat.

Maybe someday when my boys don't want to spend time with me anymore , I'll start to spend a little time on myself. But right now, with their ages at 8 yrs and 5 yrs, I'd much rather enjoy the time I have with them when they're awake.

Same here, in a way. I currently live in a RV, so space is limited. Dinner or drying dishes are usually on the table, so the bed it is. But even when I lived in a house, my favorite place to lay out my cards was on my blue rayon velvet quilt.

6 Haunted Days 

Ahhh the days of actually have 4 ft. to myself, to lay out my things, a place to read and relax. Gone for now I'm afraid!

I have no space. With my lil monster he would destroy in 2 seconds. Too small of an apartment as well. No extra room. *sigh* Some day soon again, I hope!
