My Swarovski Crystal Tree

This year, my 18th annual star/snowflake will go on my Swarovski tree.

Once it starts to snow, I am ready to put it up on the mantle!

I am continuing my mother's collection which she began in 1996 (Swarovski designed the very first in 1991).  All of the odd years are STARS and the even years are SNOWFLAKES.  

I purchased the tree from Pier 1 a few years ago:

I also added mercury glass lights so it will twinkle at night!

Each year the ornament is dated:

And I have some favorites...

…especially this one:

These photos do not do it justice and it is so difficult to get a good photo in the window over the mantle:

But I was able to catch the "blue hour":

Do you have a favorite holiday decoration that you look forward to pulling out each year?

  1. Oh, WOWSERS, Patty! I love the crystal tree, especially at night! Great photos, BTW….
    Hmmmm….I don't really have a favorite decoration other than a rag wreath my oldest daughter made in first grade!!! ;P

  2. Oh @.@

    just my Xmas tree dream !


  3. Patty, your crystal tree is incredible. What a wonderful tradition! I don't know if I have a favorite decoration. I enjoy pulling things out each year because they are things that have been part of our Christmas for many many years. My husband and I each have a small Santa figure from our childhood homes, and our ornaments mostly have a special memory. Love the season! Thanks for sharing your crystal tree.

  4. Me again, Patty. I see right across over to your sidebar that my posts are still not updating. So frustrating that Blogger doesn't update my feeds consistently.

  5. What a beautiful thing to collect...these are so lovely.
    I am in the middle of decorating....nothing heavy this year.....just tree, all our stockings and a few wreaths will do me fine. Moving has just about done us in. :)

  6. I can just imagine the sparkles when the sun shines on your Swarovski crystal tree. Beautiful!

  7. What a gorgeous tree! I love that you are continuing your Mom's collection, it is truly beautiful!

  8. Like this one, I now want to buy a crystal jewelry, Swarovski liked, but I do not know that a good pick money, you help to the point.
