Not certain on the proper forum for this...

As a result of my living situation when I begin to collect icons, should I collect two sets or simply have one set that I carry between my two homes??

My current living situation: Monday night, Friday night and Saturday with my parents. The rest of the week I am with my grandmother in the city.

Both homes already have icons in them (more because of the Orthodox heritage in the family rather than devout Orthodox praxis). The icons in my parents home have been offered to me...can I accept them or should I buy my own set??

Thanks

Accept them.  I'd keep some in both places because I've had icons damaged by moving them, even when I was being careful.

Accept them, absolutely.  As for the one set of icons or two, try looking at it as a single set of icons split between two places (since someday your living arrangements will be where you're in one home all the time).  Have some icons at each place and just try to avoid duplicating individual icons (of course, one can never have too many icons of the Lord or the Theotokos).  If you have two or three in each place, that's plenty for now and you'll have a fine start for an icon corner when you're out on your own someday.

Ok, my baba has an icon that is Our Lord and the Theotokos in one frame.  It is two separate icons on a blue background. It has a phrase: "Господи Благослави Насг Дим" Can I get that translated please??

It is quite beautiful. I will see if I can get a pic to post and show....because it seems to be *more* than other icons....would it still be suitable for an icon corner??

Thanks
