At more than one of the upscale kitchenware or tabletop stores in the area I have seen Mackenzie Childs. Do you know it? It’s the storybook-like, very cheerful, brightly patterned teapot you saw at William-Sonoma.
But what do you think of it?
Personally, I’m not a fan. It reminds me of the late 90’s and while I actually mean that in a good way, I wonder. Is it a classic now? Or is it just waiting, clinging by a hair, to topple off the truck into the trash pile of outdated things?
I honestly can’t decide.
Part of me wants it to be a classic though. I think I might even buy the teapot (slightly embarrassed to admit it?) to use in the dead of winter when I want to feel aesthetic sunshine.
Hmm… If you love it, don’t be ashamed. I might too…
