    BEAUTIFUL! My husband and I love to share a martini with special music (Edith Piaf has some great “martini time” music!) for a quiet weekend date night in. This inspired me to make it extra special with my outfit and bar supplies. I must know about that retro looking glass and olive pick! Are they recent finds or more of your vintage treasure hunting?

    Absolutely breathtaking. Dreamy. Feminine. Beautiful.

    What I dig most about these is the softness/ fogginess that allows the viewer to feel part of the dream, and it builds an anticipation of wondering where this dream will head next, once the fog clears. Great team effort, look fwd to more.
