It won’t be a stylish marriage, I can’t afford a carriage. But you’ll look sweet Upon the seat, of a Zeppelin Built for Two.

Have you ever heard the saying, “that ship has sailed?”
I planned to take a series of fabulous photos of our newest airship snow globe when we got back to Colorado after showing at the spring One of a Kind show in Chicago, but …
that ship has sailed. It was purchased and is off on a new adventure, somewhere in Illinois.
Here are a few snaps we took during the making of “Black Sails” that may inspire us to make another someday.
