Captivating Crystals

My mother, Jan loves anything of beauty. This week I'm sharing her wonderful crystal collection. She has lots of large chunks of amethyst, white quartz, rose quartz, pyrite, and I honestly don't know what. I love the way she has incorporated these beautiful "rocks" into her vignettes and tablescapes. Here she shows them off in sterling compote bowls and silver trays.

 This Waterford bowl is holding fruit made of marble and alabaster.

 The garden is the obvious place to feature large chunks of crystals or petrified wood.

 Plus a big piece of coral looks at home nestled under the maple tree roots.

Out on the patio Jan has iron bowls full of geodes.

Here are some other ways you can incorporate crystals into your decorating.

Colorful rocks, gems and crystals can add a touch of natural sparkle to your home!

I like to join these parties


  1. A woman after my own heart!!! That's a wonderful idea she has about displaying her crystals and other goodies on a silver tray in silver compotes. Maybe I'll have to copy that idea. We also have yard rocks. My wife's dad gave us most of what we have. He has his displayed nicely in a lit curio cabinet. Maybe we'll display some both ways and add our own touch! Ours are still packed away, but I will be working with them soon. Our rooms are ready for decor!

  2. This is so beautiful, Karee ! I especially love the beautiful crystals displayed on the silver compotes and footed candy dishes. Just a stunning display. I'm so happy to have found your blog. xo Lidy

  3. It's obvious where you get your decorating prowess from:) The crystals are beautiful, as are the geodes (my son's favorite!) Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!
