ah! All the more special then!
I love your altar CN.
Your large sphere is absolutely gorgeous and I adore the origami crane story. The priest asking you to lie cracked me up.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful space. I've broken mine down and I'm in the process of resetting it up (My main sacred space) so I came here for extra inspiration.
T.Y. Luna. I am thinking about perhaps using the dresser for all of my *stuff* and even the drawers to hold things, too. Not sure yet what I'll do to change it.I love your alter CN!!!!
I have always loved rocks. I always tend to pick them up where ever we go. I sometimes feel like rocks call out to me and ask me to bring them to my home.I love Gaia rocks, gems, crystal that I even have water colors I bought made from amethyst i forgot the other two. But i am gonna get more. Because they are gonna figure prominently in some pix i hope to paint.
If I loaded up a pix of my kitchen altar, the united gasps from yinz all would be heard around the world. Its very messy and always is. Love it
OOOH! very pretty table and I love your bookcase too! I have a few of those himalayan salt lamps too--and I have ones that you can put a votive candle in--have you seen those? Haven't used them yet, but I may put them on my "altar".I brought home mom's marble and cast iron table and made it a small altar space and I'm still working on the shelf, but these two are in our bedroom.
T.Y. Elven.CN - I love your alter! Just beautiful!
and your Crane story was fantastic - cracked me up!
What a special prize your Crane is - God's Security Company
Thanks for the share!
Hearthcricket, thank you for sharing your GORGEOUS pictures! Pics of your home are always so beautiful! and I love your altars! I love that purple/blue/green dragon! So cool! and I also love how you have the BM and the other Goddesses around her - (who are they if you know?). I also love the St. Nick statue! Who doesn't like good ol' St. Nick?! I remember you are Catholic, like me--and love how you have your wedding pictures on the altar too. I was just thinking last night how I should have an altar dedicated to the ancestors w/their pics, and another one to the family still living, including our wedding pics. But, we tend to hang our family pics on the wall here. So our living room wall on one side has ALL the ancestors and tends to be a "wall altar" I guess. We talk to them all the time there. But, I do love that table w/your wedding pic and the BM and the picture of Mary with the rosary. Just beautiful!
Gives me many ideas on how to change my altar around a bit too. T.Y. for sharing!
Thank you! The other statues are Kwan Yin, Demeter (she will get moved to the Lammas altar shortly and Elen of the Ways and Herne will get moved over here!), Maiden, Mother, Crone statues and Olive Wood carvings of Mary with rosary beads, and the Holy Family. Actually I am no longer a practicing Catholic, but prefer to acknowledge my past rather than toss it away or smother it. Each step in my life has been special to me!
