My New BFF :: Glassybaby

When do you light a candle? For a romantic dinner for two? To celebrate a birthday? In prayer for a loved one? To help you slow down and relax? I light candles for all of these reasons. And I love the beautiful light that glows from my new bff glassybaby pink votive.

As a fellow cancer survivor, I love the story behind glassybaby too. It’s founder, Lee Rhodes is a three time cancer survivor who was raising three small children and searching for peace and calm.  She found it when she dropped a tea light into a handblown, glass cup.  The color and light helped her slow down and heal.  She wanted to help others heal.  She opened a glassblowing studio and glassybaby was born.

Lee also wanted to help the many patients she met in chemo rooms who could not afford day to day costs that are not covered by health insurance like groceries and childcare.  glassybaby has now donated more than one million dollars from sales to charities dedicated to healing and helping patients with those needs. Isn’t that fantastic?!

Wouldn’t you agree, a hand blown glass candle holder by glassbaby would make a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift?
