Ostara 2012

Posting late, as usual.

Salt lamp behind the goddess figure. The sphere she holds is yellow calcite. Rose quartz and amethyst quartz stones with the square agate box of sea salt at the foot of the pottery chalice, and another gazing sphere of purple and green fluorite.

Glass beads and china egg candleholder from my mom, skull cup and handwoven basket of mini chocolate eggs, the pattern that attaches the handle is called a "god's eye". Clear quartz gazing ball, bisque candlestick handpainted with new leaves, stag brooch, Anubis figure, bronze bear with turquoise-chip eyes.

Silver wash over copper baby cup with rabbit handle, chocolate eggs.

The shelf above the altar holds bottles of pink Himalayan salt, white sand with the impurities sifted out through bridal veil illusion, lemongrass, whole dried chamomile flowers, whole dried rosebuds, lemon balm, and copal, frankincese, and myhrr resins for smudging. There are crystal and amethyst points, a wooden mortar and pestle. My marble mortar and pestle is still MIA, along with my athames. The boxes hold, variously, tarot decks, boxes of incense and charcoal, among other things.

Note: No one is posting here, and apparently no one is reading this comm. I encourage anyone who has circled this community to post. Otherwise it feels very much like shouting down the wind.

I haven't been doing formal holy days, otherwise I'd post. Well, I have pictures of my Ancestors altar at Samhain. I suppose I could wander around my flat and take pictures of all the wee altars. :D

I do appreciate seeing posts like this. Thank you for sharing.

This is a great altar and I love the way you work in seasonal things like the chocolate eggs and the rabbit cup.

I tend not to post because I'm not sure my altars make sense to anyone but me, but I enjoy seeing other peoples'.

Do you have a clear shot of the larger statue, maybe that you've posted before?

Ah, sorry for not being clear. The Gaia one was the one I meant. She has gorgeous lines.

I'm reading! Every entry! Promise! I'm addicted to altar photos! :)
I'll try and become better at commenting as well!

I've been following the development of your altar, and I must say that your shelf really has found its proper home!
