* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I redid my shrines over the last couple of weeks, and just took photos to share with someone else-Internet, so I figured I'd share them here too.

Description and photos (including details on where many of the items are from) on my website.

Sorry! Grabbed the wrong link, apparently. (Having linked to the athame post in the shrine one, like you do.)

Here's the right one, and I'm going to go fix the original one too.

I'm glad there are new posts because it reminded me that my project of the past few weeks has been building my Blue Star altar. I've been making the altar itself from scratch, which is a round table- I've designed mine in such a way that it's all individual components (base, pillar, top) that can be disassembled for storage. The top is almost done, so I decided to do an altar setup dry run to see how it would look once it's finished:

"The worshippers of the gods go to them; to the manes go the ancestor-worshippers; to the Deities who preside over the elements go their worshippers; My devotees come to Me." ... "Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna

I have updated my main shrine, primarily to include a trinket dish containing the pills of my Truvada/PrEP prescription on the upper right.

I have also begun to assemble a fairy shrine of random trinkets and such, placed in the frame from a fire station toy set for small children.

I love that fire station frame!  Now I want to look at all kids toys as possible shrine structures...

It's sort of the same principle as using dollhouses. This set just happened to be super cheap at my work yesterday. But you're right, it turned out really delightful!

I had one of those large fancy wooden dollhouses when I was a kid...now I want one to make into a fancy shrine!
