February 14, 2011 in Altars
I figured I’d show off a little bit of how I organize my altar supplies this week.
Here’s my current altar, due to be changed out in a few days on the full moon – the snowflakes are fitting – we’ve still got nearly a foot of snow on the ground, even after two days above freezing:
We’re using this nice microwave cart for an altar these days, because of the built in storage. First, we have this nice drawer for little things and spell needs:
Usually there are a couple of lighters in there, along with many commonly used supplies – for a quick ritual or spell, just pull open the drawer and pull what you need. I’ll be the first to admit it’s gotten a bit messy in the last couple of years; I’d like to improve on that and put in little baskets to keep things separate, but like everything here, it’s one project at a time.
The other nice thing about this cabinet is the lower storage area:
Again, more organization would be good, but the lower right has the altar cloths, in order they should be used (next one is on top). There on the lower left, towards the back, is the travel altar that often serves as an organizing space for any ritual that’s not done here on this altar – my big shell full of stones and crystals, along with mini candles live there full time. You can see other goddess images, candles, and bowls and chalices there too.
As always, we’re interested in featuring your altar in upcoming posts – send photos and descriptions to email@example.com
