I’m always finding new places for my Glassybaby votives.  I love them with the natural elements of birch and willow branches.

Glassybaby in shades of pink:  tutu, bff, smooch & peony

Can't Sleep Write Now a nocturnal journal for tireless thinkersA few days ago I received this beautiful little book in the mail from a dear friend.  We have been friends for many years and she has always been the most thoughtful gift giver.  There’s nothing like a card or a note…or a package in the mail to bring a smile.   Don’t you just love when someone out of the blue surprises you?  This act of kindness reminds me that I need to do more of this.  I need to spread some cheer!

    What a thoughtful friend….how fun to receive something so sweet in the mail! And yes, those pink Glassbaby votives are the gift that keeps on giving wherever you put them. They are so gorgeous. Fingers crossed for you to win the trip!

    Hope you’re still having nice weather but I suspect not since we warmed up to 75 here in LA today…..usually that means cold weather for the east coast right?

    Stay warm Annie and have a good night.

    I am loving your natural elements w/ glassy’s…perfect!

    What a sweet friend you have – it is always wonderful to get surprises : )

    YES…like when you sent me the glassy baby…which I use as a votive and vase. And the angel dish I am leaving out all year long, next to my sink…i see it everyday in Newport.

    This book could be the start of your huge literary career!

    You’ve turned me into a complete glassy baby devotee—I love your shades of pink, what a bright pop of color to remind us of spring!

    my parents always told me to do one kind thing a day.
    how sweet to know that kind things are so appreciated.
    spread the kindness and the light.

    The birch, boots and warm glassybaby votives lit looks like a welcome home ad!! Thank you for introducing me to glassybaby! Today my first order arrived, three lovely shady’s of blue!! It’s cold in Chicago and even though my husband reminded me that blue is a cool color, I can’t wait to light them tonight!

    Annie, you are one of the most thoughtful people I know, including the gift of your blog… Lovely Things!

  • Kathy

    It would be such fun if you were to win the glassybaby seconds contest! Last summer I ordered an Ocean glassybaby after seeing it on your blog. I love the color and light it each evening. Your pinks all lined up are so pretty! Have a beautiful weekend.

    I LOVE my Glassbaby that you gave me. It puts a smile on my face each and every single day. You are a wonderful gift giver, Annie…..and you, are the most precious of gifts. Miss my friend! xo Elizabeth
    PS: Those pink Glassbabies are oh so tempting!
