I am hoping that our babe has successfully inherited the circadian rhythms of Scotland. If all goes according to plan this blog will post as I am with my sweet little family overseas for a family reunion...on the Scottish Isle of Skye. Our almost 3 year old with strawberry blond hair, porcelain white skin and geneology that includes 1/4 Scot...is hopefully frolicking on a moor somewhere, wishing quizzically that she could wear a (purple) kilt. How appropriate to post this email that we received...a missive from Sue Pecaut Stark that reports a glassybaby sighting in the U,K..Here is what we read:
"Being a great glassybaby fan myself, I was pleasantly surprised when my husband Rick, myself, sister Barb and her husband Bill, were about to dine at the Charthouse in Dingle Town, on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland. While sitting at our table, I spotted three deep amber candle holders, and asked our waitress if those were, indeed, glassybaby? She said that 'yes' they were!!! We dined there on Tuesday night, July 17th, 2007.Just wanted you to know that I enjoyed being able to enjoy your beautiful glassybaby in Dingle Town."
Thank you Sue for taking the time to write us. Another sweet something...a grumpy July afternoon brought in an intrepid almost 3 year old...hand clasped to her grandma. The little one owned the place as she walked in...she bee lined to view the glassblowing. The grandmother was incredulous: "She must have been here before. She knows all about this place and calls it 'baby glass.'" They came and left in a 2 year old minute. It was just so sweet. Even babies are marketing glassybaby or rather 'baby glass' for us. (Small detail...the little one's name is Delilah.)
I'm off for Shepherd's Pie or maybe Hagis...Until Next Time...Nicola
