Do you like MacKenzie-Childs?

MacKenzie-Childs
Piccadilly

My husband has a "thing" for MacKenzie-Childs! Isn't that wild? I know... lucky me. Except, I don't use any of these colors hardly... maybe the green, but really none of the others. I was in a real dither about how to display this platter he bought for me for my birthday. Then my sister-in-law gave me the Courtly Check pieces for a combination Christmas/new kitchen gift. Again... lucky me... but I truly was lucky this time as it helped me figure out what to do. I purchased the mug to bring the checks and and the colors together. Little by little I will start bringing this set together. The checks saved the day!!

I'm not familiar with MacKenzie-Childs pottery, but these piece are definitely something I would buy. Our living room and dinning room walls are a tuscan yellow, and those pieces would go perfectly on my pine buffet table ;)
Great, another thing to be hankering for! Very pretty.

Lucky You to have a husband that love MacKenzie-Childs. I do like MacKenzie-Childs very much and have several pieces. I know what you mean though about getting it to fit in. Sometimes it is a little hard to use but it looks like your combination of pieces is a winner.
Thanks for signing up to follow my blog. It is always fun to meet MC users.
Hugs,

Oh I am a long time MC lover, of course I love from afar until she starts selling at Target. I always liked the black & white check pattern (not sure what it's called). Funny, it's never gone out of style. Have you ever seen her home? It's on an old steamboat in the NY harbor. Cool. Lisa
