I carved out, a little Winter

Bar of sorts, on our sideboard.

All glass, gleam and


my latest wintry


Simply adore

them. Truth be told,

spirits’ aren’t

 really my

thing but

 I love, the nostalgia

of a cocktail bar.

So old school, you know?

So retro.

So Frank Sinatra, Dean Matin and

Sammy Davis Jr. cocktail cool.

Even if you don’t partake…

 it’s the romance of it all.

The paraphernalia…

the pretty pieces: shakers, trays, decanters,

cocktail attire, crooning music, the Schmaltz!

Plus, I love the

colorful bottles, especially back-lit,

the sunlight streaming through.

Such a lovely blue…

rivaling even…lake and


Vintage cutlery

 for condiments and

decorative picks at

the ready.

The Winter Bar,

 Just add…
