Swoosh...A Tuesday cab ride from downtown Seattle delivered us two charming glassybaby customers, a couple hailing from Minneapolis. The cab idled outside of our Madrona store as the couple unhurriedly began to select glassybaby color. Their Northwest trip was an express to find their seats at the Pacific Northwest Ballet (PNB)...very stylish. They both revel in the beauty of dance...they gushed about the previous evening's ballet performance. And they are glass art collectors as well. PNB and glassybaby...their perfect trip duet.
Obviously in the company of aesthetes, we began to pull color and candlelight together. After describing their living room rug, artwork and various gorgeous furniture pieces...the sublime and absolutely ethereal beauty of 4 lavender glassybaby brought the arrival of their purchase. A perfect, sophisticated, understated choice, deriven from careful selection. With many adieus...swoosh...the cab was downtown bound.
And as synchronicity has it, the Pacific Northwest Ballet hosts a glassybaby event this Sunday at our Madrona studio. Various ballet patrons and enthusiasts have reserved a presence at our Madrona store for a ballet celebration of support and fund raising. Guests will mingle, sip libations, nibble on afternoon delectables, view glassblowing and choose a glassybaby to take home. PNB will raise valuable funds through ticket prices, all during this glassybaby afternoon loveliness. PNB is celebrated this week chez Madrona glassybaby.
Honorable mentions of the week...the debuting of new glassybaby drinker colors. We can never forget the poochies that love us unconditionally and inspire glassybaby color. Paul, our not so new, worth gold, Production Manager, has a Chihuahua named "Juicy." We now have a drinker named "Juicy." And Karen, our not so new, worth gold, Operations Manager, has a dog named "Wasabi." Again, for the love of the dog...the "Wasabi" drinker is now available to you.
Don't forget that Mother's Day is nigh...and glassybaby can deliver in color and meaning. Think....
- great oak
- calm sea
- first kiss
More soon. Insist on sandals. We are warming up, Nicola
