Dollar store altars!

Today I went to Dollar General to pick up some miscellaneous necessities. I know I am not the only one who goes into these dollar stores and comes out with things you didn't know you needed.

I found myself standing in the aisle with the artificial flowers...just staring at them...not knowing why. Finally after a few minutes of being dumbfounded I grabbed two bunches of fake flowers and went on my way.

When I got home I realized what the flowers were for. Santisima Muerte and Yemaya both wanted some beautification done to their altars. And since I am good little Spirit server...

Santisima Muerte (Holy Death) altar

I love dollar stores. We have a place called the "Christmas Tree Store" here in Vermont. That is like a dollar store, but their stuff is a bit more high quality, but not really that expensive. I tend to get a lot of neat kitchy things from there. The Christmas Tree Store has these cool laterns, that I have now 6 of them.

It is cool how the spirits called to you.

AH! Love it! I love looking for bits to add to altars and shrines--there is so much joy in finding JUST the right thing. Who would have thought that the right rusty bottle cap or plastic flower petal could make you do the "happy dance"??

Thank you for sharing!
Merry Full Moon~
