The world is abuzz with the aesthetic accuracy and overwhelmingly authentic homage to Mid-Century lifestyle and design seen in AMC’s hit TV show Mad Men and its no surprise that they captured Golden Globe’s BEST SERIES for the second year in a row. Design bloggers have been on this tip for some time, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed their design tips in reference to the show.
I just recently watched the entire first season in two sittings. It took me about two weeks to stop fantasizing my everyday life was that of a Manhattanite Secretary from the 60s.
So, we want to help you get started on your Mad Men Interiors by offering you these RAD glasses. Perfect for sipping on your highball while you watch the show. They come from Etsy Seller of the week, Sweetshorn .
The Sweet Etched Number Glasses were TEOT’s pick for favorites from the many treasures that Alia at Sweetshorn has collected and she’s been kind enough to offer them to a specially chosen TEOT reader. Take a look at her other items and feel free to drop her a line to tell her how rad she is for the well curated collection of vintage finds, killer presentation too!
So how do you get your hands on these glasses!? Just write in and tell us which Television Shows and/or Movies have inspired you in your home decor!? We would certainly love to post pictures in your comment for you (if you have them email them to [email protected]) but they are certainly not required!!

For fear of jinxing my New Year’s Resolution, I won’t type it out explicitly – but okay yes I will type it out explicitly cause I’m already jinxed. It had something to do with putting an end to spending money on my home and/or clothing for 3-4 months and focusing instead on the Vintage Shasta Camper, a Fence for Pollock, a vehicle with which to pull my Vintage Shasta Camper, or uh… oh yeah – federal and state taxes (geez!!).
Yet – the forces of ANTI RESOLUTION have already started their work on me by introducing me to this Secretary at the Antique Market here in Hickory, NC.
I was just reviewing the Eddie Ross site today and saw his Secretary Desk Before/After shots from his year in review post. There I commented – asking how much he might say was the minimum to maximum that you would want to pay for this piece.Â But I have no patience? How much would you pay for this thing and should I even do it!? Help Me!!
Sarah, is this you!? Do you likey? It made me think of the Collection of Globes that you liked from Sharilyn’s Studio and my little birdhouses that I’ve been crafting…
I wanted to include a pic of a collection of white bowls from the Eddie Ross site – they were stacked atop his apartment cabinets in his personal NY home…. but I can’t find the post anywhere.
Today I read this article:
Purple. It snuck its way into my wardrobe here and there throughout the year and the jury was still out on why it was popping back up in my life. Sometimes its hard to tell if you intuitively pick up on trends merely b/c they pop up in the world, if they are force-fed to your sub-conscious, misleading you to believe that it was your own original idea. Either way – I do have love affairs with colors and like most of my relationships they sneak up on me and last way longer than they should. Does this mean that its time to break up with Turquoise? I’m just not sure I’m ready for that.
Pantone Selects Color of the Year for 2008:
PANTONEÂ® 18-3943 BLUE IRIS
Blue Iris was Pantone’s color of the year for 2008 – I am preferring a more pure purple myself… they’re almost there. I think in 2009 we’ll be seeing more and more and more on the purple side. What I am interested to see is what the market will provide in terms of color palettes. I think that purple can be all wrong if not paired appropriately. I’ll be thinking about this while you check out this collection of fun Purple Inspired Designery.
