Moonlight Cocktail
Glenn Miller & his Orchestra
1942


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 underneath 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 morning 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 worn theme seem so fresh and new. Really beautiful Kathi. What great photo's to preserve and treasure!! We love this one a lot!!!
