Mid-Century Modern Moratorium

Mr. Man declared a mid-century modern moratorium until further notice because our Holyoke Home is "starting to look like a Mad Men set."

........................I know, right?

Because we each get veto power about what comes into the house, I was prepared to sell these on ebay. I was. I would not have hidden them in my underwear drawer, occasionally cradling them like two silvery and teak babies. No. I would definitely have sold them on e-bay. Thank you Mr. Man for letting me keep them.

  2. Hilarious. Mr. Man at my house likes empty spaces in cabinets and closets. His newest "rule" is if something comes in something else must go. There are many things hidden in bureau drawers!

  9. I want to live in a 'Mad Men' set!!! What's wrong with that? Don't knock it til you've tried it.

  11. I have not shared the phrase "mid-century modern" with my husband... but he has commented that the things I select could be taken off the set of Mad Men. He's starting to catch on! Argh!
