Sacred Space: Tealights and Incense

Incense Holder

Today I’m welcoming you into my sacred space, a space I have created with intention of bringing quiet, reflection and connection within myself.  My husband made me this beautiful triangle shelf out of old barn wood that once belonged to my father, so it has so much sentimental value to it.  I have adorned it with my crystals and twinkle lights.  Adding a few handmade pieces from Novica completed this space for me.  The beautiful long dark wooden tealight holder creates such a warming, soothing ambiance in this space.  I fell in love with the fact that it’s name is Rain because that is what one of my most special friend’s goes by, Rain.  So not only do I admire the tealight holder itself, but I also think of her when I look at it.

I also added this beautiful handmade crescent moon incense holder.  Since I connect deeply with the ebb and flow of the moon’s cycle, this piece is like a reflection of that.  I burn incense quite often as well… you can never have too many incense holders.  I have one in almost every room of our home.  I love that this one is made by an artist who’s work I already own too.  Now I am growing a little collection from the Garcia Ochoa Family. I have one of their 1,000 Nights vases similar to this one.  And I am swooning over this lamp… I love the earthy shades in it.

This space also contains one of the three nesting bowls from Novica as well.  I am using the other two in different spaces in our house, for different purposes.  I have one in our bathroom that now holds my facewash, and one next to a curio shelf that holds trinkets.  I love how multi purpose they can be.  This one holds my sage, sweetgrass and palo santo.  So many home decor items can be multi-purpose if you look at it in the right way.  I may also use the wooden tealight holder as a ring holder as well.  The pinewood tealight holder and the ceramic tea light nesting bowls are from the same artist as well, Roxana de Papadopolo.  I love her use of ceramics.
