~ mc crazy

My dear readers, I retract my grouchy gripe! You do give a hoot! God love you for responding to my whining so efficiently. The dining in NY post was appreciated by plenty, and I am truly grateful for all the emails and comments telling me so! I'm learning that different posts appeal to different readers, and that's ok. In fact, I was tickled by a comment exclaiming she loved the dining in NY post and couldn't care less about Mackenzie-Childs! Bottom line, I post what inspires me which is all I can do, and I hope I'm inspiring others in the process. 

Now, let's move on to the Mackenzie Childs crazy you should be expecting.

Oh dear Lord. Let me explain...

These flower pots were on sale. Perfect for a small plant or filled with flowers. I may use them to hold spoons and forks for a buffet...

Also on sale, these will be used for small vases...

Not on sale, but so charming - A cheese plate I'll look forward to pulling out... 

I love this pattern, Taylor: Poplar Ridge.

I have no idea what I'm going to use these for, but I love them. I may just leave one out on the counter and stare at it...

Now this was a fun find. I just love this wooden pig. I was planning to put my black and white check condiment dishes on it, and still may, but they suggested using one of the hors d'oeuvre trays on top, and I couldn't agree more!  Pattern: Taylor Fran


To the right, you can see the sugar shaker. I think that's what it's called. I won't be using it for sugar... just decoration. Pattern: Taylor: Hitchcock Field





Here is the bird tassel... One for me, one for Mom.



I've had this matching plate for years. The pattern is being discontinued. All retired and discontinued items are on sale ~ 30% off until they are gone!



Mr. Moss Frog was too cute to pass up - on sale!

Now, where to place all the goodies?

Mr. Moss Frog is going on the patio... I love him!

I put a plant in one of the planters and it's perfect on the kitchen counter.

Here's the sugar shaker as a decorative object in the kitchen...
 Would also be pretty in my bathroom.

Pig will probably be put away until entertaining, but isn't he the cutest?


I could also put the hors d'oeuvre tray on the kitchen counter...


The rest will be put away until needed... The darling bird tassel signals the Mackenzie-Childs ceramics cabinet!





Mackenzie-Childs makes me crazy.
More New York still to come...

Jan you really choose some beautiful pieces at the MC sale. I love the plates, the scalloped plate is my favorite along with the matching flower pot. The pig with the tray is so cute and will bring so many smiles when you serve with him. I'm enjoying more peeks at your lovely kitchen. Oh, and for the record I enjoyed your last post whining and all. Lovely pieces to add to your collection.

I love the pieces you bought. While MacKenzie-Childs ware is not my style I can appreciate its beauty and whimsy. Everything looks great in your home. Can't wait to see them when you entertain.

I think M-C are uplifiting and so fun. I decorated my daughter's room with plates on the wall - fish! And knobs on her dresser. Do you take the Wall St. Journal? Yesterday's (7/31) pageA18 featured the MacKenzie-CHilds house in Kings Ferry, NY for sale, and nice write-up about them. Might be able to see it online at WSJ.com/NY with pictures of the interiror!
