@Amethyst, thank you very much! I love owls! I think could be my spirit-bird…I have various owls around…
@walter what a great altar!
The shells and the owls
and the cloth underneath looks preeeetty
Also… erm… I spy something cakey? Sharing is caring
I used to collect cats. Now I just have my gargoyle cat left from the collection. It’s always fun to collect things!
@Limeberry thank you! Lol. Yes an muffin. Not a good baker, so I’m hoping from a bakery is good enough lol…
@Amethyst, I had a bird collection at one time. But the owls are my favorite
It’s very beautiful!! Your grandma must be very happy right now!
I love how balanced it is, and the colors are just perfect for Mabon season!!! Amazing job, Dee!!
@Francisco, thank you so very much!! Still a work in process. I think I will now incorporate a bigger altar on special occasions, and use my whole dinning-table. (Which is not that big lol ) Yes, I hope she feels it! Saw a YouTube video that stated that you should not have your ancestors on the same altar as your Wiccan altar. Meant to ask about it. Is that true?
Absolutely gorgeous, Dee! Your altar really turned out amazing- there are so many elements and aspects to it I love all the veggies and fruit you displayed- perfect for Mabon and the autumn harvest
Thanks so much for sharing!
I love shells. I have them on my altar, on the shelf with my Goddess statue, in my front garden. One good thing about living on Cape Cod is the access to different shells. I do have coral from the Caribbean, I put that with my Goddess statue too.
Traditionally, your “working altar” is what you’re using for the work at hand. The saying is: "You work on your altar. You display on your shrine". If you’re doing ancestor work, then it’s okay to have all in one working space.
However, unless you’re working in a Gardnerian coven or some other specific tradition, there are no hard rules about altars. In solitary practice, a lot of it is what feels right to you. If you have enough space and want to keep things separate, then that’s totally fine!
@Francisco, thanks for the information! Just gets confusing sometimes with all info that’s out there.
@Siofra, i love shells too! To me they feel so grounding .
The make me feel grounded and closer to the water. I love it.
@TheTravelWitch, thank you very much! Was really excited to create a Mabon altar.
I loved creating my Mabon things for this year. I still have them on my dresser where I make my altar. I need my hand to heal faster so I can use it and lift things with it. I can’t wait to get going on my book today for this week’s challenge.
