Post image for Book Club, Chapter 7: Making An Altar

“A home altar is a way to pay respect to our ancestors and the world around us. It reminds us that whatever we love is also within us.” Read more »

I love altars.....they infuse a space with an ethereal light and a sublime feeling of peace and harmony....they transform a simple room into a sanctuary.. I'd love to fill every nook and cranny in our home with them....time to get busy! : ) Thank you for you beautiful post! The Weaver Of Words.....give me 15 words and I'll tell you a tale
Alexandra -Mar 03, 2015, 11:23AM
Love this. I definitely feel like in my home we have alters- without even meaning to with photos of ancestors and religious trinkets. Very interesting! Warm Regards, Alexandra

This is very inspiring and a must-read nowadays. I do notice how often I am on my phone--any free minute of the day I pull it out of my pocket and am looking at it, gazing at friend's lives without actually speaking with them. It is amazing how much more connected we are when we put the phones down and am present in the current moment! Madeline

I read about a study conducted recently that found that even having a cell phone out (not being used) during a conversation between two people markedly raised each person's anxiety levels during that time. It's so interesting to think about the effect technology has on each of us. I'm definitely trying to be more mindful about my use of it, and whether or not I absolutely need to right then and there. x Samantha

What a great find. These colors here are so dreamy. I sort of love that you turned that tomato powder into a blush, never would have occurred to me. xo

Beautiful photos - and I love the warmth of that orange! I can only imagine the smell of that place. Spices are so yummy and amazing for cooking and exciting the brain. Lovely! Warm Regards, Alexandra

What a great diy! I have been using dryer balls for some time now & recently wondered how I could make my own. Thank you for the great post! I've been missing the diy's!
Abria @ Bee Splendid -Mar 02, 2015, 12:16PM
This is an awesome idea. I stopped using dryer sheets a few years back for the same reasons, but I switched to spiky plastic dryer balls that are shaped like hedgehogs lol. When they wear out I might try your wool ball method. The scented sheets sound like a great idea though -- if I can find a scent my husband and I agree on :)

What a beautiful outlook on such a simple, and potentially mundane activity. I think we all need to focus in on these 10 things in much more aspects of our lives.

A few weekends ago my boyfriend and I went to an old theatre and listened to a big band concert. It was the coolest thing! An hour before two dancers taught everyone how to waltz. During the performance anyone and everyone could go up on stage and dance, and we spun the night away. Music brings people together, and creates a positive and memorable experience. :)

Those boots and pants are everything! So so pretty. Warm Regards, Alexandra

I'm living in a rather big city, but was growing up in a small village. So for me, hiking and wandering through the woods and to the top of monuntains is one of my favoutite ways to recharge. xo, laura
