New York - I Love You!


I left you hanging the other day with a little teaser about where we went 
and what I bought in New York.

These pics were taken with my cell phone and they aren't perfect but see if you can guess where we were.



The gardens were lush.


The furnishings were unique.


The moments were extra special.

And here's what I bought.
Isn't she lovely?


Yes, we went to the actual real Mackenzie-Childs location in Aurora, NY.
And because my photos can't even begin to do it justice, here's a link
to their website. I wish you all could go there and see the bucolic setting where
they actually hand make and paint the pottery.

Everything about it is wonderful!
I know many of you have Mackenzie-Childs pieces.
What is your favorite and most versatile?

Stacey, look at the fun!! You girls look adorable in this pic. LOVE the teapot from MC and I want one too. LOL I adore her designs.
Thanks for stopping by and your kind comment. Your comments still arrive on my dashboard but at least I get them now and not in spam.
Yes, we do need the blinds here but I open them as much as possible when I can. The ac bill goes down when they are closed. LOL
Have a great week. Hugs, cm

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh you lucky duck! I have loved MC for years, I don't have a piece yet, but their designs just speak to my heart. I honestly would have a hard time naming a favorite pattern, although courtly check would be toward the top :)

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

I am officially jealous! I love the courtly check pattern and your teapot is wonderful!

Benita Roberts said...

How exciting!! And absolutely gorgeous!! The pattern, the shape, the size...all just perfect!!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

I LOVE it!!! It's so funny that you would post this today because several people posted pics on IG this weekend with these black and white pieces and I was wondering where they bought them. :) So pretty!

Sarah said...

Stacey, I was fortunate to get to visit Aurora some years ago. McK-C is a magical place. I'd love to return one day. Love the teapot!

JG said...

The fountain of flowers is such a cool idea! It's great to bring home a treasure from a wonderful visit & your teapot is so cute.

Oh how fun....always wanted to go to Aurora...have only been to her shop in NYC....what fun you must have had!

Kim said...

What an amazing teapot! Of course, I love that red touch on top!!

Lisa said...

Oh what fun! That's got to be the perfect girl friend trip! And that sweet little teakettle has your name written all over it. :-)

Happy@Home said...

How fun to visit Mackenzie-Childs. Even the gardens are whimsical and fun.
The tea pot is adorable and perfect for your decor.

Patricia Krank said...

What fun you must have had your your girlfriend Stacey! I didn't realize that Mackenzie-Childs was in Aurora, NY . . . just minutes from one of the places we stayed while on vacation . . . in the Finger Lakes region of NY! We may have even been in the area at the same time you were. Just think, I might have walked right past you and not said, "Hi."

I'm glad you had a sweet trip like we did.

Blessings,
Patti
