Wiccan Rites--Portable Altar

A few months ago I had found a little treasure at the thrift store. A marvelous hand-crafted wooden tray just the perfect size for....something, I wasn't sure what. Now that I have an outdoor altar, I had need of a way to carry my sacred tools outside and back inside. This Wiccan witch can be pretty smart sometimes! Voila:

My little cauldron, perfect for burning incense and herbs. I have a little notepad and pen for writing spells or anything else, a tiny broom for ritual cleansing, two little bowls, one for sea salt, one for water. Another tiny bowl to hold incense. Also, a small plate for offerings. A votive holder and candle and a quartz crystal complete the tray altar. I think I have included the essentials. I just love this. Simple but powerful.

You're a clever girl after my own heart. I too have a portable altar. Mine is a flat basket tray and we keep it on the dining room table, ready to go at a moment's notice.
The grands are so funny. When setting the table they have a "ritual" of where the basket goes while they put out the plates etc and then put it back in the "to go" place on the table.
I love yours. Makes me think I should take another tray and make one for a friend.
Wasn't the moon wonderful last night?????

Linda, your portable altar sounds great, too, and I love the way your grands treat it! And yes, the moon was so gorgeous in a wonderfully clear sky!!
