Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Crystal and Crystals

Friend Sally and I went south last week.
To our favorite antique shop,
We both came home with treasures!

A crystal bowl for the dining room table
I love the pattern of the glass.
Age?   I'm not sure
It's a punch bowl, I'm sure because of the size
But I think it's smashing!
And looks really good on the dining room table.

I can imagine it this fall full of pumpkins and bittersweet!

And for the dining room mantle --

Two Fostoria candleholders.    With prisms.    
They, too shine with the sun.

I also got the console bowl that matches --
In case I want to use the set on the sideboard or dining room table.

It was a crystal sort of shopping trip!

I'm sharing my new crystals with Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Inspire Me Tuesday.

Beautiful finds Martha! That bowl is gorgeous on your table, be sure and show us when you fill it with something. I'm not familiar with that antique mall, is it in Kansas or Kansas City?
Have a great day!

Lovely finds. They look super on the table and mantel. Like Gina, I hope you will post photos when you've decided to fill them with something wonderful. In the meantime, how about oranges and lemons in the bowl on the dining room table? Instant sunshine. xoxo

I adore the way the light reflects from the crystal within a room!!!
