Over the weekend, while in Ithaca, NY celebrating Jay’s brother wedding, I took a trip with a few ladies to Aurora, NY about an hour away from Ithaca to visit the home of the Mackenzie-Childs brand. All of the items this company sells are handmade in Aurora. “Since 1983, MacKenzie-Childs has made handcrafted ceramics, each piece a one-of-a-kind collectible. The company also designs hand-decorates furniture and other home furnishings”. This brand is certainly something that would be a hit in the south (if it's not already). It’s charming, hand painted, decorative, and I can see it in Southern Living without a problem. So how is it, this line of adorable items have escaped me for so long? Check this stuff out. And FYI, not sure if I need a disclaimer here but I got all these images straight from their website.
I got this cute Kitchen Utensil holder while we there.
Floral designed items.
They also have hand painted things for your kitchen and home.
There is one thing about this stuff, I think a little bit goes a long way.
