If I ever get around to cleaning my room I might use my dresser as an alter... its has a mirror and quite a bit of space. As well I don't use it so the drawers can be reworked to hold all ritual items.

I've thought about using my dresser as well.  There's no mirror, but I think I'd find that distracting anyway :) .. the space is nice and large, and that's what I need.

Here's my current shrine/altars : one seasonal and a simple lunar one.  Link because I fail at BB Code!

I would love some inspiration & ideas. So if anyone would love to share pics or descriptions of their altars it would be lovely. I always find it just amazing the beauty & creativity that go into some altars & shrines.

Right now my alter is a shelf in my closet. (Thankfully its a large walk-in) I have four children under the age of 6, so I can't have it set up anywhere permanently. It's fairly simple for the time being....an alter cloth, a few candles, my favorite stones, a couple bowls, my chalice.  In about 5 more years I should be able to have my regular alter set up again, but that means my babies wont be babies anymore, so I'm not sure I like the trade off.

Er... did you mean to ask if she prayed to 'dieties'?  (I know, I know, I find it incredibly difficult to misspell something when I intend to too.

& this was my latest:



As you can see totally empty & simple lol. I can't wait to have more space lol


First off, I have that same Bast statue. =) My mother got it for me back in like 2006. I adore it!

Secondly, my altar. It's pretty small, on this little ottoman-like storage box. I keep all my materials and decorations on this bookshelf thingy beside it. And then my darling husband put up shelves for me just above my altar, so I have my Bast statue, Aphrodite statue, and whatever miscellaneous item on the top shelf. It's simple, but suitable. =) My tiny self manages to do my workings there just fine. I would post pics, but it's in use at the moment, and I'm kinda too lazy anyways. =)

I have no altar at the moment but was planning in setting one up when we've re-arranged a few rooms. I think I'm going to have to something similar with a 7 year old and a baby to contend with. I just don't have any cupboard space spare so will have to get my thinking cap on. I really miss not having a focus point to my path.

 I love this one!!! Is that a crocodile head or an alligator head?  I can never remember which has the more rounded snout!

I just realized that it looks like the frog is nuzzling the alligator/crocodile head (yeah, I don't know the difference either).
