Thanks, I actually feel it is too cluttered which is why I have the second one.

Very nice! What is the metal item with the stars on it? It looks like it changed colors (or are there 2?)?

Bonosmuse? I believe we are in at least one yahoo group together, no?

All the shrines posted look very cool! My altar is in a bit of a shambles right now. I did get this very cool icon (http://testingpointdesign.deviantart.com/art/Holy-Family-II-36536966)for my altar a couple of weeks ago, and have felt the need to redo my altar. I also have couple of candles with the image of Our Lady of Guadelupe on them, a couple of bottles of holy water (one from Lourdes), my pewter labyrinth, a palm cross, a wooden cross from the Ukraine, an icon of Saint Mary Magdalene, an icon of St. Nino, and a dish for my prayer beads when I am not using them.
(Also, I can't find the cord that connects my cell phone to my computer, so I can't upload an image of my altar yet...)

That is beautiful. I like the coloring, how it is simplistic yet beautiful. Also, I got a kick out of the flying spaghetti monster!

Please find that cord, I would like to see a picture of the pewter labyrinth.

Well, it is not mine, but a picture of the labryinth that I bought is here (http://theshop.gracecathedral.org/Pewter_Labyrinth_p/lab-005.htm). (My phone computer cord got sucked into the black hole that is my desk, so I am not sure when it is going to be found!)

I also think the FSM icon is very cool, but the Holy Family one won out. This past shopping trip anyway... :)

the metal thing with stars is a candle holder. and i am in some Yahoo groups, like Coven of Christ Ministries and Christian Wicca.

My mother is involved in the Christian Wiccan movement but she does more like prayers. She views Athena as a form of Sophia and I got her a archangel last month. When I get around to it I'll post a picture of her altar.

Athena as a form of Sophia...i can see that.
And i'd love to see a pic of her altar.

I'm going to wait until Stephen goes to work tomorrow to post it. I'm going to keep the camera phone because I practice Tameran Wicca and the last piece for my shrine is coming in this weekend and I want to take a photo of it. It's the obelisk and I've got a space on my shrine set aside for it. Also I bought her Michael and it should be sent out in a few days.

I really hope that it will come in by the middle part of next week. It's the one with Michael defeating the Devil.

I think i see Michael on that, in addition to Sophia/Athena. What else is on that altar?

Raphael, the Virgin Mary praying over Jesus as a baby, a incense burner that has a storage container inside it, a white candle, a centaur (my mother loves them), and that's it.

You were correct about Michael.
