Two customers put together the most beautiful melange of Fall colors to rent for a November auction...their event will raise funds for the French Immersion School of Washington...where both of their daughters attend in Bellevue. The decorative theme: french artists and glassybaby. We are thrilled to light their event. The colors chosen: New Fern, Curry, Seattle Sunset, Toffee, Goldenrod and Warm Gravy. Think Toulouse-Lautrec. Stunning.
Speaking of French, a world class French furniture designer (shameless plug for my husband) has designed a stylized Christmas tree that stands 6 feet tall and holds 34 glassybaby. For years, Lee has had this vision to create a tree that holds glassybaby. In this year of 2006...the vision has been realized. We will have 2 sizes available for purchase, the six footer and a table top version...more details to follow. It is really handsome and like our motto: "glassybaby forever"...it is the eternal glassybaby Christmas tree.
In the spirit of trees, we will join forces with Conservation International (www.conservation.org) to illuminate their annual gala event in November. No fewer than 800 glassybaby will glow...we are thrilled to support Conservation International...such an extraordinary cause.
Final note...just today an October customer neared a 2 hour retail session in our store, carefully choosing 2 glassybaby...finally she looked at me and said: "this is harder than choosing the perfect pumpkin."
Happy Halloween...Until Next Time, Nicola
