This house did that. It faces north (I always like a north facing house) with a large oak tree in the front yard. The air conditioning unit is on the east side, the fireplace along the south wall, and the kitchen sink is, of course, on the west wall.
I look around me today and see the elements in their proper order. Hidden in plain sight. I'm the only one here who even thinks about it. I would love to have someone come into my home and make this observation.

- air and fire, the pitcher holds water, and in the bowl - salt.
I keep my altar set up in the kitchen and no one has ever said "O look! An altar." I would love that. I have hints all over the place, still no one even winks at me.
I have had people tell me how comfortable they are in our home. I've even had visitors fall asleep in my chair - I'm not offended by this and take it as a sign of peace. I like to think they are able to let go of their troubles and relax. When this happens, Darrin and I (and sometimes other guests) go into another room and wait for the weary traveler to awaken. That usually happens within the hour, they may be slightly embarrassed but they are always grateful. Funny thing - it happened once with a young priest and when he woke up he said "It was like magic, we were watching the basketball game and the next thing I know I'm waking up!" Then he told us how he had never gone to sleep like that while visiting parishioners and how comforting our home felt to him.
For those of you living your pagan life "out loud" how is your home a reflection of you? If you are 'closet bound' what's the most witchy thing on display in your home?
