Also, here is my shrine since I haven’t posted a new picture in forever.  The Heru and Ptah statues are new; Ptah I made myself, and the contrast between him and Djhoots keeps cracking me up every time I look over. xD  The oil lamp is new as well from my trip to Greece - not sure how my trip to Greece has reinforced my love for all things Egypt, but there it is. It may not be a WR experience, but I thought I’d share a little something anyway :3

So after doing some thinking, I decided that I want to begin working with Ptah.  I’ve read about him since I was a little kid, but I have never actually opened a shrine for him.  For whatever reason, statues of Ptah seem to be hard to come by (and that aren’t really expensive), so I made my own.  You know how kids make pics of their parents and give them to them excitedly even though the pictures are wonky misshapen stick figures?  Yeahhhhhhh. xD  But I’m actually pretty happy with how it came out; the base is a sandstone block, and I glued some small sticks and a chunk of iron I found to the base - figured Ptah might like a shrine of all the main craft materials, clay„stone, wood, and metal!  Now to find some appropriate beer for offerings…

Isis is like “Look, I know you are itching to get your bone on in the backseat of the sunboat but could you do me a solid and just revive my son real quick?” and Thoth is like “Oh yeah, no problem. Done. By the way, how were those scorpions? Pretty sweet, right?” and Isis is like “They were a pack of angry scorpions that you gave to a single mother with a child.
