Time for a new feature. Every first Friday of the month I will share links to some wonderful Pagan/ Spiritual items.
First up is DeBaun Fine Ceramics – I have bought a scarab bowl off this lady and my mum has a beautiful Mother Mary shrine from her. She’s in the USA so we have to buy from her before my brother’s yearly visit home to the UK; my purchases this year are the gorgeous Shiva sculpture and a custom Hathor shrine. I just have to hope my brother can fit them in his case or I may have to pay for him to have an extra bag… the things we do for the Gods and Goddesses we adore!
Here are just a few of the many items she makes:
Isis incense bowl
Gaia gold shrine
We have a gravel driveway and I’ve found some interesting pieces on it over the time we’ve had it. Yesterday I found some belemnite remnants, some fossilised shells and a hole-y stone. Dad also found a couple of bits of ammonite for me. I thought the belemnites and shells would be perfect for Aegir, Ran and their daughters, being the remains of ancient sea creatures. The ammonites would be a good representation of Jormungand, and the hole-y stone for Odin since in the Mead myth he turned himself into a serpent to wriggle through a hole.
I also found a perfectly round natural bead, and Sigyn has claimed it for Herself. I haven’t photographed it though because I hope to make a necklace or some other offering with it.
Karnak Temple was targeted by suicide bombers this morning. Fortunately they didn’t actually get into the temple but a number of people were injured.
Karnak is my most beloved Egyptian temple, I had a very special experience with a statute of Mut there. I wish others would stop imposing their religious values on everyone else and stop targeting our heritage sites. It makes me realise how much we can take them for granted. Do they really feel so insecure in the power of their beliefs that they have to destroy what came before? I feel so sad right now.
Just to let you know I now have a new page with links to my various Pinterest boards. They include articles on Paganism, as well as pictures of various Pagan-related interests. I have also started boards to collect pictures of various members of the Norse pantheon. When I have those done I will start on the Egyptians.
