Cocktail Shakers Ready ~ Mad Men Season Premier

We are getting our cocktail shakers ready for Sunday night's season premier of
Mad Men.  I even made an avatar of me (courtesy of AMC) so that I 
can be with the guys of Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce.

Love that show.  Although I am a professional interior designer, I have also
worked at a couple of advertising agencies in both New York and Houston.
Let me tell you, it's a wild and crazy business.  One guy wanted a job
at an ad agency in Houston.  He wrapped his resume around a rock and
threw it through the agency's window.  He got the job because of his
ingenuity, but the cost of the window came out of his paycheck.  

As fun and creative as the ad world is, you better be able to soar like an
eagle to keep up.  Sixteen hour days are not uncommon.  No wonder the guys
at Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce need a cocktail.

So we will be glued to the television on Sunday night.  I will be watching to 
see what everyone is wearing.  I love the fashion on that show!

Oh ~ and the music too.  In case you have not noticed (perhaps you always
have the sound turned down on your computer) I am a huge music lover.
All kinds ~ jazz, pop, classical, even some country.  Just can't live without it.

This was my mother-in-law's favorite cocktail recipe book.  It came from the
Mad Men era.  Oh and these cute little cocktail napkins too.

I did some research about popular appetizers from the 1960's.  Oysters Rockefeller,
Chex Mix and of course, deviled eggs.  

So before the season premier begins, let's go visit ~

No Bentley ~ I don't think you should have oysters, but you can have a
deviled egg!

  1. Sounds like you are READY!!! I can't wait!


  2. I love Mad Men and was a teen in the 60's so I remember my parents wearing clothes like these and drinking cocktails for sure!

  3. I was afraid it wouldn't come back can't wait to see what happens. I remember the 60s very well - fashion and all but don't miss the clothes and ratted hairsprayed hair.

  4. You know I just never got into that show. I do love the clothes when i see the advertising on television, though. And you may as well give Bentley the oysters too - between that and the deviled egg that poor creature is going to have terrible gas. I hope he doesn't sleep with you all - ha!

  5. I have the DVR set, Susan. I can't believe I have never watched it, but will tune in now. I might have to have you catch me up, if I have questions.
    Bentley, so glad I have the dvr set, your Aunt Robin tends to doze off by 9!

  6. I LOVE Mad Men and will definitely be watching - we have waited so long, haven't we! Having been a secretary in the sixties, I can so relate. Will be settling down to watch with a "highball" drink!

  7. So great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays. Hope you'll join me this week too.
