Joan Halloway/Christina Hendricks

Christina Hendricks by divadebbi 

For the last five years, I have been a hardcore devotee of Mad Men.  Everything about this brilliantly, complex show intrigues me; the characters, their back stories, the 60's, the clothes, the history and the amazing journey creator Matt Weiner plunges us into each week.  (For those of you who are also MM addicts, do visit Basket of Kisses. You have not a clue how truly rich this mosaic is, until you read the intelligent analysis each week by sisters Deborah and Roberta Lipp and there well chosen commentators).

As we head into the last third of the 5th season, I'm already trying to savor what's left of it, instead of dwelling on the impossibly long hiatus between seasons. 

Sunday nights episode, "Christmas Waltz", featured and incredibly poignant, witty and charming afternoon and tipsy evening spent together by fan favorites "Don" and "Joan".

Portrayed by the magnificent Jon Hamm and the equally gorgeous bombshell Christina Hendricks, it was gorgeous eye candy, but smart and touching. MM at its very best.

I was inspired to create this homage to Joan/Christina.  She enchants me.
