Salt lamps on the rear corners--one electric, one candlelit. Owl and cat candle lamps, amber glass and iron votive holder on the left front corner, cut-out cats pottery candle pot on the right front corner holds a screen for botannicals and resins to heat over the flame.



The altarcloth is a length of fabric from the seasonal decor aisle at Joann's. Tombstones behind a black iron fence, crows in winter-bare trees silhouetted against a huge full moon, all in tones of grey and black and white. Scrying bowl holds water, the cauldron holds resin and botannicals loose incense to heat over the flame. The chalice is tulip poplar wood, carved with some of the bark left on.

Here, it's a symbolic tombstone. Spheres of natural clear and fused quartz, and champagne calcite. Honored dead photo, and the antique silver cresent moon match safe holds ashes.
