            My question is this . What kind of temple/ alter do you have. I have a small mobile alter I can set up anywhere I am if I take it with me. Well except for my alter statues. I don't have them yet and  need to replace a few candles lol. But, I have all the rest. sometimes when I go on the road I have an extra trunk in the trunk with all my alterstuff. But I am considering building a slightly more mobile one in a bag . Any suggestions?

You don't need much for a mobile altar.  A couple of deity figurines - I use chess pieces.  They're pretty sturdy for traveling - a cone of incense, a nice scarf or handkerchief and some candles. 

Which chess pieces do you use, Aurelia?  I've mentioned before on this board my Midsummer Night's Dream themed chess pieces that I love.  The King and Queen are dressed in classical Greek/Roman garb.

I started doing that after you told me what you did.  :-)

I bought a Greek gods set of chess pieces years ago.  Once I read what you told me you did, I went and got the king and queen, which are Zeus and Hera.  They're pewter and fit nicely in a little velvet bag.

Cool!  You'll have to take a pic of them sometime.  I did a Summer Solstice set up last month and took pics.  I'll look them out and then post one here later.

Here it is. :)

VERY cool

Thanks!  After I set up the shot, I realized too late that it would've looked better if I had put a leafy branch in the background, instead of having the window shade as the backdrop. 

PS - Thanks to whoever corrected the "Alter" in the topic title to read "Altar."  My OCD was bugging me over that. lol

Haha! 'Alter' bugs me too...along with 'truely'. Makes me insane!

Nice altar. Very nice!

Thanks!  :)

Thanks!  I usually call the King and the Queen: "Dominus" and "Domina" ("Lord" and "Lady").  They're kind of like the Lares of my home.  :)

@Aurelia:  Do you have a lararium in your home?

I never thought of using a king and queen from a chess set. I mean them being also known as lord and lady. How cool.

My travel altar fits in an Altoids' tin ... so, pretty small. I have matches in there that double as incense. Birthday candles, a small Goddess figurine that I made myself, a square piece of silk, some salt ... and that's it. At home, I use the top of my dresser for the altar so it's much bigger. But, for travel, I go with tiny.
