Vintage Vegetable Mania

For whatever reason the 1950s was an era that not only included crinolines, rock and roll, and lunch counters, but also vegetable mania. Kitchen decorators from coast to coast loved adorning their walls, counters, cabinets, and clothes with anthropomorphic and non-anthropomorphic veggies!

In my search for veggie mania I ran across some amazing examples from Etsy and threw a couple in from my own mid-century kitchen.

Mad Men Season Premiere

When the Mad Men Facebook fan page announced that they were searching for Mad Men premiere party hosts I knew that I had to register. They promised to send a select few a Mad Men premiere party pack filled with party favors and some amazing Mad Men goodies. I never imagined that I would receive one of the party kits, but this morning Fedex delivered my party kit!

This is the box as it appeared at my door:

I am a HUGE Mad Men fan so I was super excited to open the box. Looks like it will be a great party!
