H is for Home

This post for the Pagan Blog Project.

I don't know if it's because I'm a Libra, or because of how my mother brought us up, but how my home looks is very important to me.

That's not to say I need fancy furniture or Oriental rugs - although nice furniture is a bonus - but I need my home to feel just like that: a home. I need it to feel safe and welcoming, not just for me but for any guests I may have. I strive to keep everything tidy on a physical and magical level, and to fill my space with things that create a comfortable atmosphere even if there is witchy shit in every corner.

As I write this, a warm storm has picked up outside. It's raining, and the wind is pushing my wooden blinds away from the windows. Inside, I am surrounded by candlelight; I smell beeswax and faint sandlewood.

It's good to be home.

View from the foyer. The camera likes blue, I guess. Ouija tray covered by crap as usual.


Supply cabinet: herbs and candles. My two living plants!


These herbs actually have jars!

Main room. That whole bookcase is occult stuff.

Altar space by the kitchen entryway.
Mundane bookcase by the TV cabinet.

The view directly behind me in the office. So, my dresser.

  1. That rain was awesome! I was so tempted to run outside in it.
