Glenn Miller & his Orchestra
Couple of jiggers of moonlight and add a star,
Pour in the blue of a June night and one guitar,
Mix in a couple of dreamers and there you are:
Lovers hail the Moonlight Cocktail.
Now add a couple of flowers, a drop of dew,
Stir for a couple of hours 'til dreams come true.
Add to the number of kisses, it's up to you.
Moonlight Cocktail – need a few.
Cool it in the summer breeze
Serve it in the starlight undeeath the trees.
You'll discover tricks like these
Are sure to make your Moonlight Cocktail please.
Follow the simple directions and they will bring
Life of another complexion where you'll be king.
You will awake in the moing and start to sing
Moonlight Cocktails are the thing.
The photo in this beautiful vintage layout is Kathi's parents on their wedding day in 1942. We can almost hear Glenn Miller and his orchestra belting out a song. Swing was the distinctive style back then. The carefree good ole days. The beautiful distressing is perfect for the layout and the pop of red hues really shines through and brings this page to life. Love the layered design coupled with all the punch work that gives this page so much texture. It makes the old wo theme seem so fresh and new. Really beautiful Kathi. What great photo's to preserve and treasure!! We love this one a lot!!!April 8, 2012 at 6:43 pm #164633April 8, 2012 at 7:05 pm #164634April 8, 2012 at 8:44 pm #164635April 8, 2012 at 8:47 pm #164636April 8, 2012 at 11:36 pm #164637April 9, 2012 at 1:39 am #164638April 9, 2012 at 1:53 am #164639
I loved this when I first saw it and am excited to see Kathi get LOTW! Well deserved!
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."April 9, 2012 at 1:55 am #164640
