The altarcloth is a glittered length of oakleaf print fabric from the seasonal/decorative aisle. The copper plate holds Russian sage, lavender, sage, and lemongrass from the garden. An old basket with a twine-mended handle holds pumpkins and apples. Light and dark balance at this point of the year, and sun and moon tealight cups anchor the front corners. Salt lamps, electric on the left, tealight-lit on the right, light the back corners. The spheres are rainbow fluorite, champagne calcite, fused and clear quartz.

The stag’s head brooch is propped at the foot of the running stag tile pillar stand. A two-wick pillar candle was sprayed lightly with adhesive, rolled in coffee (you can also use plain cocoa or ground cinnamon), then the excess rubbed off, to give a "dirty," aged look. The cauldron on the tripod holds an incense mix of resins and botannicals.

Thank you! You too. Although I'm getting eager for Samhain, now. I guess that's still harvest season, though.

And to you, too. Time to think of Samhain, now.
