Oh Samantha Stephens. When I was a little girl I wanted to BE her. Bewitched is one of my favorite shows of all time. I bought the boxed set and got my nieces obsessed with it too! I think this show is the reason I love green so much. I mean, look at that carpet!! Awesome. I love love love this house.
And what's not to love about this fabulous living room and that awesome lamp! I know, this screams the 70's but I LOVE IT! Maybe because seeing it just reminds me of my childhood? I don't know.
But what I do know is- just to the left of Samantha in this shot sits "the bar". Maybe because drinking was a huge no no in my house growing up I became obsessed with that bar. The entire show consisted of Darrin (or Derwood hee hee) working his advertising job, Samantha being the domestic goddess and- cocktails. With your friends, clients, family, wherever and whenever- cocktails. And not the frilly stuff of today, oh no! The hard stuff. Straight up. On ice. And I loved how there was always ice in the bucket ready to go.
Well all this leads me to tell you about my latest obsession. I'm on a mission to find antique decanters with those hanging silver labels. Just like Samantha. Just want to fulfill a lifelong dream, and just cause they're pretty:) I'd love to have friends just stop by and I'd say " Oh hey! Come on in! Scotch? Bourbon?" Yeah right! Nobody drinks like that anymore :( It's more like "Oh hey! Can I get you something to drink? Water?" Whatever the drink, it will sure look cool in a beautiful glass with ice out of a silver bucket :)
Am I alone here? Or did your childhood television shows affect you this way??
