Guys! I finally got an amethyst geode!
Isn’t it beauuuutiful? As a child, I occasionally pretended my birthstone was amethyst, because I loved purple, and my birthstone was actually alexandrite, which is equally purple and beautiful, but very rare and therefore very expensive. I’ve always loved amethyst geodes, and now I own one! We found a whole store full of them in Savannah, and my mom bought me one as an early birthday gift.
Right now, it’s perched on top of our Beatles box sets in the living room, but I’ll find a better home for it eventually. Somewhere that isn’t in the damn office, preferably.
In honor of this momentous occasion, I’ve collected a few of my favorite geode inspiration photos. I realized while I was digging through my Pinterest account that many of them came from this great post by Kendra over at Haus and Home.

Apparently, amethysts are not the geode du jour anymore – it’s agate now, haven’t you heard?! But that’s OK with me. I also love agate, and will have one of those soon, too. Kate of Centsational Girl found a pair of blue bookends at HomeGoods for $20! You can bet your ass I’ll be checking our local store.

I’ll admit, though – I would definitely prefer purple.
Are you hot for rocks, too? What’s your geode of choice? (For the record, I’m still obsessed with druzy jewelry. Looooove.)
