A Modest Shrine
Posted on January 17, 2015
Browsing my backlog of drafts I found this half-started post, and figured I’d toss it out there. Who wants some shrine porn?
A photo of Freo’s shrine in my former home. To date the only shrine I have erected expressly for any deity.
It has actually been taken down and placed in storage due to an unfortunate change in my living situation, where I do not have the space for even such a small end-table or shrine. Eventually my goal is to obtain a handful of amber shards to put as a permanent offering in one of the bowls, utilize the other for temporary offerings, and to use the glass for liquid offerings. Not pictured on the shrine itself is a necklace which I have recently obtained that will also be given to her:
The necklace was made by Sarduriur, who does some great work.
Before you ask, no, this shrine isn’t intended for pro-active use. It’s in fulfillment of an obligation. Quite simply, I promised to keep one for her as part of an obligation in exchange for a personal request. And I can assure you it is not what you think. I am eager to get the shrine back up and in finished condition but, as of right now, the necklace is the ‘portable’ version of the shrine. I kind of consider myself the “Martha Stewart” of shrines, as I like mine to be scantly accoutered and as aesthetically pleasing as I can find. Cluttered ones make me wild. This is definitely a work in progress!
Thanks for reading.
