* "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.

Jar Shrines
« on: November 27, 2011, 09:25:15 pm »
I found some neat pictures of shrines in jars (like a spiritual ecosystem, as one comment says) and I thought they would be a great idea for those of us who are short on space and/or cash:

and

http://www.blogher.com/crafty-chicas-glass-jar-shrines

Has anyone made anything like this before?

I have a salsa jar that's big enough to use for a craft like this, so I think I'll try it and post some pictures when I'm finished.

I did mine in a ceramic jar. Filled it up with watery looking marbles and seashells for an ocean deity. I must admit, though, those do look interesting :D

I make ceramic art and am currently taking commissions. Have dream altar ware you\'ve always wanted, or a statue for a deity or spirit that you could never find? PM or email me and I\'ll see what I can do ;)

Those are some awesome ideas!  Especially for those of us with furkids!
You can also find my ramblings at my blog although I\'m not the best at regular updates.  I\'m working on fixing that. Or look for me on FB here or Google+ here. :)

Perhaps I'm jaded but this is no different than the many ships in a bottle I made in my youth and teens in the late 60's and early 70's.  We made terrariums and solariums in all assorted sizes of bottles or panarama's and Diarama's in larger bottles and jugs.

Far from being something new it just seems like a rediscovery of something old and trying to pass it off as a new creation.  Though I admit a panarama or diarama to ones gods / goddesses is probably a better use than the old horror movie ones we made back in the day.

Well, isn't that pretty much everything? :)  Lots of things are rediscovered, tweaked or built upon.

To be fair I don't see anyone anywhere making any claims of originality regarding the idea. In fact in one of the originally linked images/blogs the author notes that she was inspired after seeing similar things in boutiques.

So, basically, you're jumping on nothing.

I'm not jumping on anything, I just find it amusing in a pathetic sort of way.  It's nothing new as a concept or the selection and / or application of material to be enclosed within the container.  For me it's just a reminder of childhood things and things we made and played with.

Heck even the concept and usage is nothing I was not introduced to in my middle school (6 - 8th grade (figure 1968 - 1971) art classes or re-introduced to in later art classes or folk art I encountered all about the world.

If anything its a sign of the reduction in general education and cultural exposure that once filled our school systems.

Sheesh!! Really????

I think the whole point of the post was not "Hey, this is something new", but "Hey, if you're short on space".

Either way, what's the big deal. I mean really?!?!

I quite like it. I remember seeing some 'spirit bottles' pictures made by a voudouisant on deviantart when i started researching into The Baron. They are beautiful:

This seems like a good idea if you're on the road as well as lacking space. Creative and cute! Spoil us with many pictures after you make it!

Thanks for the share!

I can't wait to have an empty bottle of booze and money to buy crafting supplies. :eek:

... I was going to ask why, since (as has already been pointed out) no one is claiming this is something new, you were taking the kind of issue with it that you are, but then I noticed the bit I bolded.

It sounds like you're saying you find this childish, because you remember it from childhood.

Yep, nothing says "mature adult" like looking at what someone else is doing and "finding it amusing in a pathetic sort of way". /sarcasm

Nope, I find it a bit amusing and somewhat pathetic when I see so many in the pagan fold speak on about being ecclectic and taking what they only want then seeing it was something we had years ago.  Yet it's so much about individual today that its amusing when the answer is something that in mosty instances has always been right before thier eyes.  But then again that was always part of the advantage of groups and being initiated or brough up in family traditions.
