There seems to be a quantum leap just after Halloween that puts us right smack dab in the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Here we go.
Thanksgiving is my personal favorite. I love that we have a glassybaby called Warm Gravy... and in the spirit of Thanksgiving I love philosophizing about the myriad virtues, options and consistencies of the edible version of warm gravy. To giblet or not to giblet? Don't even get me started on oysters in stuffing. I digress...back to glassybaby.
Precisely as I write this blog entry...the finishing touches are being placed on a lovely evening party hosted by Tamara Marson, a wonderful local Windermere Real Estate agent. She has rented our space for her fete. The party ingredients?...appetizers and libations, glassblowers and shopping. Shopping for glassybaby as well as gorgeous hand crafted jewelry imported to our store by Maria's Designs. The jewelry is stunning...befitting of Cleopatra...and wonderfully presented...partially by the dreamy light of lit glassybaby. Our space is glowing... a unique place to host a party. Tamara is offering two door prizes: a pair of glassybaby and an earring/necklace set by Maria... two lucky winners will go home with a prize. All this fanfare...Tamara's way of thanking her clients...classy with a capital "C."
Just a sweet endnote. I received an urgent phone call this evening. It began with these words: "Did you find...?" I interjected: "We have George." Her response: "Oh, I am so relieved." A sweet little 3 year old girl had been in our store with her mini Curious George among other sundry key fuzzy guys. George had silently fallen to the ground. We found him...he is safe and as the Mom explained to me: "If it had been 'Bear'...I would be driving back to you right this second. For George...I will come tomorrow." So sweet...George spending the night amidst a glassybaby menagerie.
Until next time, as giving thanks...beckons us all, Nicola
