This morning I’ve got a little kitchen/entertaining themed shoot happening at my house. It’s supposed to be taking place in the fall so I spent most of yesterday afternoon trying to track down linens, plates and accessories that were rich jewel tones. Most stores are still in their end-of-summer phase, so it was tough to find fall-appropriate colors, but these pieces from RabLabs would have been perfect. Anna Rabinowicz from RabLabs is set to debut some beautiful new pieces at next week’s Gift Fair, but these pieces from her current collection are always on my mind. I love the chunk quartz pieces and the colorful agate. They were out of my price range for today’s shoot, but if you’re looking for some colorful entertaining or decorating pieces, these would be perfect.

In junior high I had an obsession with Amethyst! My nickname was amethyst, my email had this beautiful gem in it; and, I owned a lovely amethyst ring and a big chunk of rock with a few of these crystals on it. I was…obsessed. While, I’ve toned down (a lot) in my passion, I still can’t help but be drawn to it. Thanks for this lovely little post!

The stoppers could be easily DIY’d with some E-6000, a plain stopper, and a cool rock. Ideas, ideas…
