So I was walking through Homegoods the other day trying to kill time before picking my littlest one up from pre-school, and I found this amazing lucite bar cart. It was all see-through and squatty and kind of bubble-y looking and I loved it.
But for $300 at Christmas time, it was more appropriately put on my Christmas list and NOTmy shopping list. Boo!
But it quickly became the inspiration for a hot chocolate-fueled frenzy of bar cart searching the following evening. Not only did I find an even more perfect bar cart, I realized that $300 in the world of bar carts is pretty reasonable after all. Who knew?
If any of you remember my absolute addiction to all things Mad Men (see here… and here…and here), you may understand my retro bar cart obsession a little better.
So, this is the bar cart I landed on and my $300 obsession is now a healthy $1700 obsession… leave it to me to inadvertently pick the most expensive item on the page every. single. time.
With that said, my bar cart search also led me to another little bar-specific covet: an agate bottle opener. How sweet and petite is this little opener at Anthropologie?
That means I won’t mind spending a few more cold, winter evenings curled up on my couch watching my all-time favorite show!
If you are a fan like me, this is stellar news. (Season 5 was a long time in the making… my Mad heart couldn’t take that long of a break again!) Sunday, April 7th is the date for the two-hour premier… gasp!
We are officially one week from the two hour premier of Mad Men’s fifth season. I am beyond excited and have houseparty.com to thank for my fabulous Mad Men party kit. Party kit, you ask? Why yes, and here’s what came inside….

There’s nothing I like better than a sharp-dressed man. And if he’s not in his favorite jeans and white t-shirt, then I prefer him in an impeccably tailored suit, crisp white shirt and the perfect tie.
