Are you Mad for Mad Men?

Mad+Men+Season5+Promo+1Last night, I watched the season premiere of Mad Men. It took me a little bit of time to catch up and see where the plotline was at.  It was off the air for almost 18 months afterall!  Anyway, I just love the clothing, decor and styling during the 60’s, so I was excited for the return.  I have an appreciation for the mid-century look and want to incorporate it into my own home! My home was built in 1959 after all.

Check out one of my fave projects featured on Mad In Crafts, Joan’s necklace pen created by Heather Mann of Dollar Store Crafts as seen above.

Until next time Swellions!

    Hello Alexa,
    I have never watched the show, Mad Men. I have been hearing a lot of hoopla about it over the internet. I am going to tune in and see what it is all about. :o) Thanks for sharing and have great day.
    Smiles, Paula
