And the lion will lie down with the lamb...
Every year, one of our Christmas traditions at home is to put together a very old lion with an even older lamb or two. This year we added a 'peaceful' glassybaby to complete the feeling of harmony that this time of year epitomizes.
Interestingly, the chameleon-like colors that 'peaceful' projects allow it to fit in and enhance any yuletide decor. And judging by the serene faces of the participants, above, they seem to think so too.
Have you ever seen anything as festive as the mantle adornment that Valerie put together at her house? It is stunning... Oh Holy Night indeed!
We would love to hear about (and see) some of your glassybaby festive holiday decor!
Even though most of us are totally caught up with the jolly air of the season, we still love to take time out to celebrate birthdays. (My Ernie's birthday is between Christmas and New Year's... and yes, growing up and to this day (my bad!) he receives gifts that say on the card... you guessed it!... "Merry, Merry and Happy B'day!" (Or more truthfully, I just save out a couple of things. Am I borderline wicked?)
Well, our glassybaby friend, Anne-Francoise, told us a wonderful holiday birthday story...
Her friend just turned forty, and not only did Anne-Francoise plan a surprise birthday party for her, there was a fabulous slideshow as well which included the picture above. Her hubby gave her the idea of the big 40, set in multi-glorious glassybaby. She thought she would have to make a foray to a gb store but realized she had just enough. What a cool idea! I love it! Thanks for sharing Anne-Francoise.
As a recent customer was chatting with us on the phone about colors and choosing a gift, she had a sudden intuitive leap about what fun it must be to work at glassybaby. (And I agree it is!) She remarked that working at glassybaby would be the greatest job, for "glassybaby is happier than Disneyworld!" (And we all know that Disneyworld is supposed to be the happiest place on earth! Right?)
Happy holidays our dear friends and hold your loved ones close at this special time of year and always.
Until next itme,
