MacKenzie-Childs Enamelware: Friday's Find #253


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! If you popped over to check out today's find expecting to see the popular black and white MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check, you're in for a surprise. I've admired charming black and white collections on some of my favorite blogs and Instagram accounts, but who knew MacK-C also creates romantic floral enamelware? Not me! I scored this lovely set of 6 featuring my favorite colors with the pattern I'm always drawn to--floral--at an estate sale.

Here are the lovelies as I spied them, stacked on the back part of a table filled with dishes at the estate sale. I didn't realize until I picked one up that they are enamelware, which I happen to love as much as the gorgeous colors and pattern.

Imagine my surprise when I flipped one over to find it was MacKenzie-Childs, which I've never come across thrifting or even at estate sales. After searching online, I wasn't able to identify the pattern, but thanks to the help of blogging friends who collect MacKenzie-Childs: Sarah at Hyacinths for the Soul, Susan at Ashtree Cottage and Rita at Panoply, I learned it's from a collection called Pressed Flowers. The pattern is Camp Mackenzie, dated 1995.

Next, I was really surprised (and happy!) to find these large square Corelle plates in the free bin at one of my favorite thrift stores! There are four and not one thing wrong with any of them. I have something non-food related in mind for these. 




I also found two of these striped pottery mugs.

They have a very farmhouse feel to them--the blue stripes remind me of a grain sack stripes. AVAILABLE HERE!

Last but not least, a charming floral teacup by H & M, Sutherland Bone China from England.

  2. Wowee. I hope you're keeping those Victoria & Richard era enamel bowls. They don't make them like that anymore. Beautiful, and wonderful price.

    1. Thank you, Rita! Would you believe I was undecided about the price at first? I didn't have service to look online at that particular sale so I wasn't aware how much they go for--so glad I grabbed them ;)

  5. Another tidbit learned today; never heard of MacKenzie Childs; those bowls are gorgeous! Will be awesome for soup come cold weather or maybe a chilled soup now? I'm guessing the Corelle dishes will be a tiered holder of some sort??? Always love your finds. I'd make a coffee or cocoa gift basket with those 2 mugs!
