Saturday I got a opportunity to go to Glassybaby, a company here in Seattle that makes these incrediable glass blown candle holders.  I have admired these for over 2 years and keep telling myself I am going to make a trip to the shop.  Well, I finally did and wow is all I can say. I am overwhelmed with founder Lee Rhodes and her amazing spirit and courage and ministry.  Here is her Goodwill to all:
To honor those who have walked her same path, founder Lee Rhodes established the glassybaby goodwill program, which has brought light and hope to thousands of people who are facing their own battles. During her cancer treatment, Lee met many other patients who could not afford even daily needs such as bus fare, childcare, or groceries. Today, much of the money donated by glassybaby goes directly toward meeting those basic needs. And to date, glassybaby has donated more than nine hundred twenty five thousand dollars from sales to charities dedicated to health, healing and quality of life.   You can visit and find out more about Lee Rhodes and Glassybaby  at www.glassybaby.com

Here are a few candle holders I came home with.... absolutely stunning once lit.

Here is just a mere few of the vibrant colors they offer..... stunning and tranquil
