Le Mysterieux Carnival Blog Party (+ Moonlit Herbals Giveaway!)

Accueil, Accueil! Learn the first initial of your true love’s name! Only a quarter to learn your future!

Speak with Mademoiselle Carlier, gypsy witch of the forests of France… Learn your future and your true love’s fate…
(The adorable pin-up witch is courtesy of Awkward Moments Greeting Cards on Etsy!)

Just a mere quarter…

Peel the apple, the fruit of wisdom and power and knowledge…

Gently blow on the peel with thoughts of love and romance and drop it in the cool, clear water… now with patience, the apple works its magick…

Is it an A? Perhaps a Z? Who is your true love? A kiss (or two) from the mademoiselle for good fortune in finding them…

The Mademoiselle Carlier may be just a figment of our imaginations (not to mention a lovely woman in a 1910 painting) but you really can discover the first initial of your true love’s name with nothing but a bowl of water and a simple apple peel.

Just as the gypsy witch’s instructions require:

  • Focus on thoughts of love, romance and finding your soulmate.
  • Peel a strip from an apple, as long as you can make it.
  • Blow gently on the peel.
  • Drop it into the water.
  • Wait for the apple to form the shape of a letter!

Want to make a little carnival magick of your own? Just leave a comment to be entered into our giveaway courtesy of Moonlit Herbals: the Carnie Folk candle! It smells like irresistibly buttery caramel popcorn… THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED: CONGRATULATIONS TO IESADORA!!
