Our hearts go out to the people of Norway in light of the senseless and tragic violence that recently occurred there. An enormous crowd gathered at the Nordic Heritage Museum in Ballard paying their respects and hoping to find a semblance of relief and strength together. The light of seventy-six glassybaby glowing in the colors of the Norwegian flag shone for the seventy-six victims, many of whom were only teenagers attending a youth camp. So achingly sad.
The glassybaby team made lots of new friends in San Francisco last weekend when the gb road show was in town. Lee, interviewed by a local TV station, spread the glassybaby message of healing and light.

One customer who watched the story on television was so touched by what she heard that she took two buses and a taxicab to get to Lotus Bleu where the event was being held. She was going through her own dark time and wanted to share in the comforting warmth of these magical little vessels. She bought 'gratitude,' she said, for herself.
Ten percent of all the sales at the show will be donated to the East Meets West Foundation.
I must say that I made the most scrumptious and delectable raspberry butter you have ever put on a hot croissant, girlfriend! And it was eee-zeee! All you do is mix into a 1/2 cup of softened butter: 1/3 cup fresh raspberries, 2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar, and a dash of lemon juice. Spoon it into a festive summer colored glassybaby, and then spread it onto a steaming hot from the oven popover. Talk about good!! I tell you!
And if you can, eat it outside! It tastes doubly good!
Next on the hit parade: local blueberries and peaches. Don't you just love summer?
A special thank you to all of our loyal glassybaby friends.
Until next time,
