Today’s color palette is all about the cool tones. I didn’t expect to like this combo as much as I do, but I’m currently thinking of a summer outfit featuring each of the following colors: ‘peace,’ ‘purple haze‘ and ‘hope.’ Enjoy!
10% from the sale of each ‘purr’ and ‘wet dog’ will be
donated to the Humane Society of the United States
It’s no secret that we love dogs at glassybaby. At our Madrona studio and hotshop, every day is ‘bring your dog to work day’. This workplace perk means that we share daily in the love and affection from a motley crew…some with pedigrees, but more from rescue shelters. Recently, the cat lovers amongst us let out a collective sigh when one of our newest color glassybaby was christened, ‘purr’.
glassybaby has partnered with the Humane Society of the United States since 2010, and donated over $18,000 to support the efforts of the world’s largest animal protection organization. 10% from the sale of ‘purr’ and ‘wet dog’ will be used to support the Humane Society’s Emergency Services Program that rescues dogs and other animals from disasters or abusive situations, like puppy mills.
Unconditional love, entertainment, friendship, devotion, drool, fur and occasionally a bird or mouse; it is nearly impossible to describe all the gifts that our canine and feline pets bring to our lives. Now you can select a ‘purr’ or ‘wet dog’ glassybaby and, until June 30th, you can include a personalized gift card to celebrate or pay tribute to a beloved pet.
Celebrating moms with glassybaby has become quite a trend,
a trend that we are very fortunate to be a part of.
Year after year we see the same top sellers with names like ‘mom’, ‘angel’, ‘gratitude’ and ‘courage’. But during a visit to our Bellevue store this week, Mrs. Pam Jenness, our fabulous Bellevue store manager and Rentals Coordinator, shared some interesting information with me that made me think that these trends might be changing. We have a natural tendency to gravitate towards gifts that say something about the qualities that make our moms so special to us; their courage, their strength, their unconditional love. But what about the people and things that inspire these qualities? The children, the husbands, the family pets. Children make great shopping companions when shopping for a glassybaby. Instead of typical colors, they go for unexpected colors with names that say something about the people and things that make our moms so wonderful, the people and things that allow our moms to demonstrate these unique qualities that they possess. They gravitate towards names like ‘wet dog’, ‘sister’, ‘brother’, and ‘dad’. You might say it’s a backwards way of thinking about Mother’s Day gifting, but I believe that anything from a child’s mind, in its most pure form, is the best way to tell her thank you. I’d like to call it ‘innocent brilliance’. These colors are not only brilliant in their unique names, they also happen to look fabulous together (see below). So for next time around, I will be sure to note these new and unexpected colors as a part of our Mother’s Day gift suggestions.
To all mother’s, happy belated mother’s day from the entire glassybaby family.
