yeah I was thinking about that too.

The basket theme was really cool. Anyone up for that again?

Here is my amazing moon goddess shrine from grasshopper!  We haven't had any cloudless days so I did my best with the natural lightening I had.


It is a sphere box outer shell!!! There are stars and ribbon (?) decopaged on it before it was painted silver



Inside is the little goddess on her padded bed with moon dust, gems, and a mini moon.  It is so lovely and the whole concept is so fun!  I love it!  Thank you so much grasshopper!

Ani, I'm seeing photos of a lovely shrine, so it must've worked ok.

What a brilliant idea, grasshopper. I especially love the tiny moon and the bottle of stardust. I can't tell how big it is overall - about the size of a grapefruit, perhaps?

Yeah I had to remove the wrong pictures and it took me about half an hour to get the right ones in.  

The top photo I am holding it in my hand and I would say it's about the size if a cantaloupe?

Duh-oh! I was looking right at that and somehow I didn't see it. Thanks for clarifying.

I hope your package gets to you soon Monnie!!!


Me too - I'm getting antsy...

On another note - what is the plan for Ostara?

I'm down for one like that or whatever theme works.

I got a wonderful shrine from phnxreign99 yesterday. I included Celtic goddesses on my list, and she suggested Arianrhod.



I love how abstract this shrine is. Arianrhod was called the Goddess of the Silver Wheel, and was associated with the constellation Corona Borealis (which is called "Caer Arianrhod" in Welsh.) There are silver wheels - rings - on chains, and lots of stars, including the constellation itself.






She included lots of extras too - silver candles (the star-shaped one sheds glitter promiscuously!) and a sweet little star-shaped holder. The sheep fridge magnets are for Imbolc, and the little sun charm has beads of garnet, turquoise and amethyst.

Thanks so much for this, Tammy. I hope you like your package as much as I do!

I received from MamanTattoo today! Unfortunately the USPS managed to destroy the box and it arrived in a plastic bag.  MamanTattoo had included a little something extra and it was lost due to the box getting ripped open.  Below is the cute Goddess doll that did make the journey. It's really soft Smiley




Thank you so much!!

I just love all the different ideas everyone had! That's horrible that the package was destroyed craftypuppymom and MamanTattoo! That is always my biggest fear when sending! Now I am nervous as my package to monnie is still en route!
