The 'love our oceans' set of glassybaby made quite a splash on Orcas Island this week... well, thank heavens, not literally! We caught a ferry up to this especially charming San Juan Island to visit our friends Mike and Sally, who have moved there from New England. Sally was delighted with the ethereal evening time glow of 'safe,' 'dolphin' and 'ocean' which perfectly complemented the seaside setting and the excellent crab cakes Miss Sally served up with an exceptional summer berry pie. The ice cream on the cake, er pie, was that ten percent of the sales of this set goes to Conservation International. That is sweet no matter how you slice it.
This weekend (July 22-23) glassybaby makes a brief but exciting foray down to San Francisco. Whitney and the team will be at Lotus Bleu at 325 Hayes Street and invite you to a cocktail party to be held on Friday between 3 and 7PM... or stop by anytime all day Saturday.
Many of our wonderful Facebook friends, along the south-bound gb van route, wish we could pay them a visit, too. We loved Cathy's query: "If you drive south on the 101, could you toss out a few boxes (gently) as you go through Santa Rosa?" It would be so nice if we could make lots of stops to see our glassybaby friends.
Our observant Facebook friend, Stephanie, pointed out to us that the day we blithely added the lovely visage of Jackie O surrounded by the glow of glassybaby to our homepage, July 16th, was the anniversary of JFK Jr.'s death. Could that have been only coincidence? I'm not sure.
Well, my great LA friend, glassybaby aficionado extraordinaire, Ellen is at it again, throwing another shindig resplendent with the light!
This one she cleverly named "Barbegeddon!"
All of LA was advised to stay home last weekend to avoid "Carmageddon" the closing of the behemoth 405 freeway. So what does Ellen do? She invites relatives and neighbors, complete with lots of kids to a barbeque or "Barbegeddon!" She even made her own freeway of glassybaby and flowers trailing down the middle of the table.
As Ellen put it,"No dinner party would be complete without glassybaby. You can dress them up or dress them down. The older kids loved having the responsibility of lighting them. glassybaby are not only elegant, but kid friendly too." Thanks dear Ellen. We love your take on things!
And thank you to all our glassybaby friends and readers. You inspire me.
