When I tuned into the Seahawks playoff game this past Sunday it was towards the end of the first quarter. Much to my dismay, I found our Seattle Seahawks down 14-0! Now I’m not overly superstitious, but I knew something had to be done. Without delay I scanned my glassybaby collection and chose a navy, white, and lime green to light in support of the team. It wasn’t until after they were shinning brightly on my coffee table that I realized how aptly named my selections were; ‘forever,’ ‘hope,’ and ‘imagine.’ It was meant to be. Once those babies were lit, the Redskins didn’t score a single point while the Seahawks marched on to victory. ESPN might tell you that it was Marshawn Lynch’s 132 rushing yards, or Russell Wilson’s tenacity that won the day, but just between you and me I know it was the glassybaby. In any case, we’ll certainly be lighting up our lucky candles next Sunday in my household!
glassybaby is partnering with Seattle Children’s Hospital on a new giving color: ‘hope‘.
10% from the sale of each ‘hope’ glassybaby will be donated to the Seattle Children’s Hospital
Emergency Patient Assistance Fund. This fund ensures that finances don’t stand in the
way of health, safety and dignity. To purchase ‘hope’, click here.
A couple recently visited our Bellevue glassybaby store to select a gift in celebration of their 38th wedding anniversary! They chose the warm color of friendship, mostly because they loved the name. Over the years, glassybaby has not only lit up their home, but has also provided a creative means of communication. The wife, Jill, shared that when she and her husband were in the middle of an argument, she returned home from work to see a note using the two glassybaby colors hope and love. Along with the glassybaby was this message: “There still is HOPE for LOVE.”
Our HOPE for this LOVEly couple is that their 38 years of LOVE and FRIENDSHIP continue to grow. Thank you for including glassybaby in the celebration of your life together!
