Embracing My Inner Kris Jenner


Kris Jenner's Christmas Kitchen (Complete With Mackenzie Childs)

Passing Notes Today:  Mrs. Kelly

Hi Girls,
Last weekend I channeled my inner Kris Jenner (sorry) and made a trip to Aurora, New York for the annual Mackenzie Childs Barn Sale.  If you remember, I went last year for the first time.  This time, my mom and I went on a Saturday afternoon.  It was a gray day but the grounds were as lovely as ever--talk about flora and fauna!

When we arrived, the parking lot was busy enough.  I didn't start twitching though.

Here's a shot of the farmhouse:

Doesn't a wrought iron fence make everything look more charming?

And here's the wait line....ahhh!  Bliss!  No lines.

Flowers, flowers everywhere.

And here's an inside shot of the barn.  Lots of happy shoppers.

My strategy with my baking is to put the baked good on something lovely.  I figure if it only tastes adequate, at least it looks pretty.

The cushions were marked an extra 20% off that day.  
Each day they mark something else down a little more.

I loved this mailbox but the price tag was still a bit steep for my blood.

Some of the other great features of this sale include an awesome band, delicious food and stunning views!

More greenery!  What an amazing backdrop.

Doesn't this look straight out of a Jane Austen novel or something?

I didn't go crazy at the sale this year. I picked up this welcome mat (which was also discounted an extra 20% that day), some salt and pepper shakers and a gift.  I'm hardcore...frizz and all.

There's Seneca Lake in the background.  I want to go to there.
