Tori’s Friday Favorites – MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check Enamel Tea Kettle & Butterfly Garden-Sky Enamel Mugs. Comment to win!
This week I’d like to announce a new feature on my website – Tori’s Friday Favorites! Once a week I’ll be sharing things that I find fun, beautiful, useful or interesting with all of you. Food and recipes are fabulous, but sometimes it’s nice to share other things too. I often stumble across new brands and products that inspire me. Friday seemed like the perfect day for chatting about all of this– we’re gearing up for a relaxing weekend, Shabbat is approaching, and all feels right with the world. Let’s dish about our Friday Favorites!
I’m kicking off my very first Tori’s Friday Favorites with a giveaway from MacKenzie-Childs. When I first spotted their products on my friend Ree Drummond’s website I immediately fell in love. They’re unique, colorful, high quality items with a whimsical vintage flair that I just adore. Many of their items are handmade on a small farm in rural New York by a team of talented artisans, which means each product is one-of-a-kind. I knew I wanted to introduce this beautiful brand to you, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to host a giveaway of their lovely products.
MacKenzie-Childs has generously shared their famous Courtly Check Enamel 2qt Tea Kettle along with two Butterfly Garden-Sky Enamel Mugs as a giveaway for one lucky reader (a prize valued at $176!). The kettle is made from heavy-gauge steel has been hand-painted, ceramic glazed and rimmed in bronzed stainless steel. There’s also an adorable wooden handle and the lid is topped with a beautifully carved bead. Of course this kettle can, and should, be used to make tea, but I love the idea of using it to display flowers, as shown in the photo above. Their enamel mugs are inspired by enamelware used by cowboys on the open range; the pretty butterflies are hand applied after the second glaze firing. The decals fuse to the base coat during the next firing, becoming a permanent layer in the design. Clearly a lot of thought and artistry goes into their designs, and it shows.
