Yesterday was glorious...goldenrod glorious. Today...let's just call it a wet dog day. The flights of extreme weather mood are what bear the abundance of every little snow drop that is popping up from the Seattle earth. For this, we give Spring thanks.
We have been replicating rain indoors...coaxing along a waxy little green plant that found a home at glassybaby in a glassybaby. Please indulge me with a quick 'Charlie Brown' plant time line. Quill is a company that supplies us with all sorts of things, from office supplies, to kitchen supplies, to snack supplies. As a client thank you, we received our little green plant, "Charlie," last fall sometime. Upon arrival, he was immediately transplanted to a glassybaby. Truth be told, I doubted his chances of surviving. Look at Charlie now...intrepid little guy and well loved.
Other notes from the week...our kitchen intersects us all. I love it for the chance to chat with our glass blowers. Andy and I crossed over this week, while he was preparing a masterpiece of a root beer float. He explained that after a shift making dozens of root beer glassybaby, his Pavlovian response, landed him right in the aisles of the local Safeway store, picking up a liter of root beer and a half gallon of french vanilla ice cream. Another great moment inspired by glassybaby. Andy also shared this (I love this)...he has a glassybaby, sand, zen garden. To explain, we have mounds of fine sand under our kilns. I believe if molten glass drops to the floor, this sand is there it catch it. Andy makes a habit of tending to the sand, creating zen patterns. Root beer floats and zen garden designs...he is evolved.
End note...if you are in New York, or can book a last minute flight...we are hosting an open house, this Saturday March 27th, at our 555 Hudson location. Sip on chilled white wine, served in the loveliness of glassybaby drinkers. We will provide light bites, of the cheese and cracker variety, all to the clock of 6-8pm. We hope that you can join us for this soiree...if not...there will be more.
More Soon, Nicola
