@Sarafeena_Sage I love the little shelf & bench! They are awesome!

I’m figuring out a second altar space :thinking: where I can layout my crystal grid cloths to use them. Right now I don’t have anywhere to set one up & leave it for some time. So I think half of my nightstand is becoming a smaller altar. I love inspiration! :heart:

@Susurrus Your love and care for the space shows- it’s not only lovely visually, it has a really warm and cozy atmosphere too :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@Rowan It’s my pleasure, Rown- the badge suits you very well! :blush: I’m so sorry to hear that your cute pup was sick but it sounds like you took very good care of him and that Hekate gave Her blessing too- I’m thrilled he’s doing much better now! :heart::dog:

@Sarafeena_Sage Ahhhh!!! :heart_eyes: Oh my goodness, they were cute before and now they are divine- the moss and natural touches really bring them to life, Sarall! And ohhhh at your Flower of Life grid, that’s a lovely treasure too! Good luck with the consecration, may all your beautiful things serve you well! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@BryWisteria - I don’t know if it really shows in the picture of my altar, but I now have 2 Labradorite Palm Stones. I was in the basement with my son looking for something else & walked by an open box. So I peeked in the top to see what was in it… some of my mother’s things from her purse & nightstand. I saw a glimmer & opened the box. There it was a pretty good sized polished Labrodorite palm stone… it’s bigger than the one I already have! I had no idea, she never said anything about owning such things or that she had any kind of interest in them. Even if it was a gift, she never said anything to me. So took that baby upstairs with me along with a coming that says, May Good Luck Always Accompany the Bearer… that I found under the stone. Then there is a pendant that just, I don’t know, I need to do some research about it because there is just something about it… I have a picture of it, but haven’t searched for anything yet. Today may be the day…

It looks cool, but I feel like there is something I am supposed to know about it, so figured I would start with the basics first. :laughing:

@Susurrus You have so many fun treasures :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: The pendant with the cat is very interesting- is it some type of clockwork cat, in a clock? Very curious indeed- I hope you have fun exploring it! There must be some reason it is calling to you :cat: :sparkles:

@Jeannie1 It’s a beautiful candle and it sounds like it has been serving you well in your practice, Jeannie :blush: May it continue to burn brightly and beautifully! :candle::infinite_roots: :heart:

It looks like an older type of image of a cat, I’m very drawn to the eyes, but don’t understand the clockwork inside the cat? I have no idea where my mother got this, when, from who… It was in the box with the mystery Labradorite palm stone.

As a matter of fact, I’ll be back with what I find out in a few minutes… :hugs:

Edit: So I poked around really quick… I found it on a “witchy” site for Cats: Gothic, Egyptian, & Witch & it was on Etsy listed as a pocket watch or pendant for a necklace or even a locket. This is definitely a pendant… but I have found that it is just described as a Gothic Steampunk Cat Clock Pendant…

I’m no expert here, but my mother either was witchy or was close to someone that was at least somewhat witchy. I have no idea who it was though or why she was given this pendant. It’s not something she would buy or get for herself. I don’t think it was her, she was very much a reborn Christian/Baptist…somewhere in there. I remember being like… don’t talk to me about the bible or religion or needing Jesus… I was confirmed in the Catholic Church because… parents… then I never went back to church unless it was my mom’s funeral service in 2003… which… I almost got tossed from that day, but that’s a story for another time…

So for now, it will hang out on my altar… maybe some dowsing with my mat should be done if I can put the pendant in the center? I’ll come up with something because right now it’s listed everywhere as vintage & such but only for like $3? It’s the image thought that I keep needing to look at… there’s something with this pendant…

Maybe she had a thing for cats?

@Sarafeena_Sage, when I first looked at it the first word that came to mind was Steampunk… Still, not something she would get for herself & she wasn’t necessarily a cat person. I’m getting this feeling someone around her gave it to her for some reason & at another time gave her the Labradorite palm stone. It’s kind of picking at me when I see the pendant or the palm stone. It’s definitely in an intriguing kind of way which is always fun… it’s a something I need to know kind of feeling. I’m going to pull out my altar dowsing mat & cleanse my favorite pendulum & see what happens this weekend. :thinking:
