Happy Valentine's Day. In honor of the Saint and the day and the love that abounds, we have a limited edition color named St. Valentine, which induces lovely heart palpitations. It is a finite classic...a deep pink close to our smooch glassybaby. I hope that you get one.
I like the dashing anonymous gentleman, who entered our Madrona store. I asked if I could help him in any way. He replied: 'I think I am in need of some pink.' Translation...Sunday February 14th, Valentine's Day, will be pink perfect with a glassybaby cadeau in hand. He stole away confidently, with a St. Valentine glassybaby in tow. Astute purchase.
An archival email exchange has slept in my blog file only to be shared now. Lori and I volleyed glassybaby color emails. Some of our exchange included this by Lori:
"I have a hunch that my husband ordered me Oz. So I keep checking the mail every day like a mad woman. He thought I was nuts with how much I love GB's, but now he is starting to light them himself and he puts them all over the house. It's great."
I love this message. It is distinctly Darwinian in an 'evolution of man' way. Lori's collection is 25 glassybaby strong. Most of her glassybaby reside on the buffet in the living room. Apparently her hubby has a feng shui bent and he regularly plucks a single red glassybaby from the buffet and stealthily places it in the kitchen. Lori finds this to be "hilarious." Again...evolutionary. Sociologically speaking we are a subculture...with no gender lines.
End note. Tracy Morgan, an adored by us, customer, has become an adored by us employee. I love that we get to have her in our fold...such a wonderful addition to our sales team. Tracy gave a special weekend birthday fete to a dear friend, which included birthday bequeathing of glassybaby. As a thank you Ally, birthday girl, sent a postcard to Tracy. On the front of the postcard, a cherubic faced, red headed, zen girl. On the back of the postcard a note that said:
" This is the look on my face each night as I work surrounded by my glassybaby and thinking about my awesome birthday weekend..."
So sweet. Tracy shared the post card with me...destined for the blog. Thanks Trace.
Love to you all on this Valentine's Day from glassybaby. More soon. Nicola
