Grace Seidel's photography captured Patent Leather in our store window. Her creative eye, the red glassybaby, the wishbone tree in the distance, the same tree refracted in the clear glass base, struck me as the perfect harbinger of Valentine's Day.(Thanks for sending the photo Grace.) Cupid is in the air and in our colors...think, Taffy, Peony, Patent Leather, Ferrari, True Love (of course) and in some cases, even,... Wet Dog.
We are on the brink of ushering in Spring colors. I have seen the ribbons of new color on our shipping table...poised to be named. (Upon furtive consultation with...let's just call it our 'color mole' I now posses new glassybaby name knowledge...there will be a 'Pretty,' a 'Cozy,' a'Crinoline,' a 'Blue Bird,' and more.) Spring colors are on the way...stay tuned.
A nice store passage...Lee and I color consulted and fluidly chatted with a couple today. They currently live in Louisville; however they miss the Northwest, their former hometown. They dream of moving back if careers and stars align. They are glassybaby fans and made our store part of their Northwest itinerary...buying 4 lovelies to take home with them. Conversation can take the most amusing inroads. They smiled to reveal the confluence of their surnames...Jennifer Olive married William Pickles. So charming, and they are 'expecting' (a sweet little gherkin.)
Until Next Time...Nicola
