Mackenzie-Childs Farmhouse in Aurora

These are just a few photos I took while visiting MacKenzie-Childs mid February - to read that post, go HERE.

I never tire of this view. 

This walkway leads you to the MacKenzie-Childs Farmhouse in Aurora, NY:

I was welcomed into the entryway by this adorable and clever floral arrangement in an umbrella:

This sweet tray was set for Valentine's Day - the napkins folded into hearts and the vase filled with artificial tulips and silk flowers.  I would enjoy sitting here for a cup of tea!

The breakfast room is so bright and cheery and proved that Parchment checks can be mixed with any pattern, even the retired Pink Honeymoon pieces:

One thing that always catches my eye is the cording trim around the doorways in the breakfast room - a little detail that is such a surprise, sadly so many people miss it!

My favorite floor, depicting many of the majolica patterns:

It was a very cold day and you can tell by the color of Cayuga Lake in the distance!!  This is the view from the 2nd floor bedroom:

I could sleep soundly in this pretty room.  The vases on the bedposts screw off so that you can keep fresh flowers and water in them daily!!

This is on of my favorite floral arrangements.  During Christmas there were greens draped out of the soup tureen, a simple arrangement, but so eye catching.  During Valentine's Day the tureen was decorated similarly with flowers, also draping out of the side.  Very clever!!

The Mackenzie Childs Farmhouse is open daily for tours and it is a must-do while in Aurora!  It's a tour full of inspiration and fantasy!
