    Cool pictures, Tylluan Penry!

    (off topic - is that a Jezail rifle in the background in the second picture? A family heirloom?)

    And here's the second, of the altar in my kitchen....

    Mods - I'm really sorry to have double posted here but I can't find the double post button and when I tried to post the two pictures together they wouldn't load at all.

    Your kitchen is OUTSTANDING Tylluan. Also, I don't think I've ever told you, but you're very beautiful in those pictures.

    Wow - you have good eyesight! Yes, it's an Indian Matchlock rifle, probably dates back to the early 19th century I think, very pretty with brass strapwork. Above it are two eighteenth century coaching horns.

    :-[ Thank you!

    With regards to my kitchen at the moment it's full of cobwebs - that way I don't have to decorate for Samhain or Halloween

    still waiting on a few things in the mail.... one thing each for me and Yuka... then we have to figure out where to put them and change the handles on one of the cabinets (broken handle, got it at goodwill...) once its finally all put together I'll have to upload our his/hers altars ;o)

    I know I have posted my altar before, still here it is. In the silver box is my rune set. The scull is a box too and there I keep my two pendulums. The candles, except the ones in the holders are made by me. And the altar is in a cupboard. The girl's face and the cat's head are also made by me - I know they aren't very good, but I like them.
    I have made myself an altar at work, as soon as I take a picture of it, I'll post it.

    Here it is - my altar at work. I will put some pictures of my students at concerts on it too. The Aloe Vera symbolizes the growth of my success, the little jewel symbolizes the sun above us all, the sun is for everybody. The roses symbolize me - my hometown is in the middle of the Rose valley and there are roses everywhere in it. The stone represents the music, this is something I bought especially for a concert and wore it only on concerts. (there is a little hook on top, but it can't be seen on this picture)

    I took the photo with my web cam so it's a tad fuzzy and the image is reversed. This isn't my actual altar, but the shrine to Gaia and Cernunnos. I printed the images from the internet and made the frames from craft sticks. In the center are my (dirty) censer with a smudge stick and the offering bowl. The thing in the corner is my wand in its wrapping.

    Re: Pagan Altars :)

    This is my only alter,its dedicated to the mother Goddess and the father God. The silver box holds some of my protective/healing herbs the wiccer one holds the less nice herbs. I'm still looking for stuff to finish it.
