Meet Harriet, starlet of the Northwest...here she is, posing on driftwood, with glassybaby flanked to her right in the beautiful colors of big sky, milk and patent leather. She has been modeling for more than 7 years, which is obvious from her contrapposto leg arrangement, tilted head and Mona Lisa smile. We particularly love her extremely sympathetic and evocative gaze. Thanks to Valerie who wears so many hats for us, among them, corporate sales, business development and now professional photographer. Harriet autographs (sandy paw prints) available upon request.
The joie de vive in Seattle is palpable now that the pall of grey sky has lifted. Everyone has a combination of amnesia and euphoria. Seattle is simply amazing in the summer. Part of the summer joy is apparently a compulsion to bake cookies and bring them to work. Here is a cookie tale from our camp with a twin twist. Sophie, our intern, turned valuable, 'can't let her go,' summer employee, breezed in one sunny day, wearing a flouncy short skirt, cotton T and stylish cardigan. She came bearing freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. We swooned and tittered with delight at cookies 'in the house,' delivered by Sophie's signature charming force field. Fifteen minutes later, Marissa arrived, our Marketing darling and resident stylista. She entered wearing a flouncy short skirt, cotton T and stylish cardigan. And, yep, in enters glassybaby occult, she came bearing freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.Peels of laughter ensued. If you made it through this tale...thanks for indulging the frivolity. Here they are:
End note...Kelley Moore, glassybaby patron saint and saint in general,is regularly featured in Seattle Magazine, with tips of aesthetic and gastronomic genius. In the recently published July issue of Seattle Magazine, she is featured with her husband and scads of charming young July children, in a feature spread on Seabrook, Washington. Kelley dazzles the pages with her inspired styling and she includes a white glassybaby tree, adorned with milk glassybaby. We are the white in her 4th of July red, white and blue. Thanks Kelley...great piece. (Beware...there is a recipe for banana s'mores included.)
Until Next Time...Nicola
