New from MacKenzie-Childs

Thursday, August 17, 2017

Happy Thursday, My Lovelies!  The weekend is almost here.  Do you have any fun plans? Are you traveling to view Monday's eclipse?

There will be no Literary Friday post tomorrow, but never fear...Literary Friday will return next week, and I'll post a bonus review Monday.

Please join me tomorrow instead for a Summertime Tablescape Challenge. 

Here's a preview:

My tablescape is actually in our dining room, not here in the breakfast room, but this is still a hint of what is to come.  ;P

Have you seen the brand new coffee pot from MacKenzie-Childs?  I love me some coffee, so I must needs this lovely addition to the majolica line.

I do love this pot!  My Christmas Wish List is growing by the day...

I also love this pretty deviled egg plate.  We Southerners love our deviled eggs!

I also love this dish towel.  I draw ribbons and bows like these all the time.  These are holiday bows, and they are part of the holiday line, but I think they're fun for anytime at all not just Christmas.

I'm giving away this book.  Have you entered yet?  Here's the link!

Please come back tomorrow for the fun Summertime Tablescape Link Party.  There might be a giveaway involved (or more)!

Until next time...

  1. I was also drooling over the new coffee pot - however I don't drink coffee...haha...I make myself laugh! I hope you add it to your collection! I imagine a new catalog will be in the mail soon with all their new items - and then I will make a list, pretending I am very wealthy, then I will dwindle it down to a sensible list of one or two items...laughing at myself again..haha

  2. Well, that coffee pot is just fantastic. I am a coffaholic I won't sign up for the book drawing although I am sighing with envy over it. I just packed my library up until we get moved.....spring can't come too soon! xo Diana

  3. I'm a coffee addict! The new pot is fabulous, and you should definitely add this one to your home. I'm eagerly awaiting the new catalog to see what's new. '-)
    I'll be back tomorrow for your summer table.

  4. I was also drooling over the new coffee pot and LOVE coffee. I hope we both add it to our collection. Looking forward to your summer table.

  5. I LOVE that coffee pot too!!! You have so many pretties! See you at the hop!

  6. Wow, I love these pieces and that coffee pot will need to hide from me! I hope you get it, would be perfect with your collection.
