Or, they can/should be.
Instead of having spread out altars and bookcases, I’ve consolidated my Craft stuff. Well, most of it, anyway. There are still stray candles and books hanging out and about, but I’m working on it. Here is where it stands as of right now:
I had a couple of brilliant ideas for the sides: hanging stations for herb drying and magazines (I subscribe to Witches & Pagans and there are fantastic articles I want to keep). All I need are some eye hooks and (found) thin branches. Thought about buying dowles, but that’s no fun and Home Depot is not an ideal place to reconnect with nature.
Over time I’ll also add sigils and runes to the front frame using acrylic paints, then seal the whole thing. Yes, common sense dictates I should have done the markings and sealing before setup, but that idea came after. Of course.
It’s time, too, to bring out the Ostara lovies. We have a pale blue bunny and a few other things. I really, really want to get ahold of some lavender and ribbon to make lavender wands. Have you seen these? So beautiful!
Honestly, I can get sucked down, what we call, the Pinterest hole more often than I care to admit. Mike likes Wikipedia. I like Pinterest. It could be worse. 🙂
Back to the altar. I’m leaving it this way until Ostara and and won’t be changing anything until Beltaine. Not with Mercury going retrograde on the 22nd, anyway. And you know I’ll be saging the hell out of this place before and after. May need to grab another bundle at The Stone Maiden. Or, five.
And on that note. I wish everyone a safe and happy St. Patrick’s weekend and New Moon.
Y’all be careful out there.
