My MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale Purchase

I have been dying to share my best 
purchase from the MC Virtual Barn Sale 
this year.  

I fell in love with this cake platter right away.  
How many cake platters does a good witch 
need I ask?  Well, if it is as fabulous as this, 
I guess we needed another one.  

She takes front and center on my kitchen counter.  
She is actually made of two pieces, but 
knowing people the way I do, I figured 
someone would come and lift up the peak 
of the hat and drop it.  I decided to use a 
little earthquake proof stickum to secure 
the top piece on.  

You cannot believe how many people have 
tried to move it!  Please people, just ask, 
don't try and take it apart.  So I was glad 
that I was proactive and secured it down.  
The two pieces will come apart with a 
slight twist.  

I wish I had purchased another one for my 
daughter who just fell in love with it when 
she saw it.  

Isn't the twist at the top of the hat 
just amazing?  

I may never be able to attend the real 
barn sale, but the last two virtual ones 
have been fun!  

Thanks for stopping by to see what Beaulah 
have been decorating.  

She told me she would like to be repainted 
in black and white with accents of gold! 


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Oh, wow! That IS cute as a warlock’s ear! I’m glad you thought ahead to protect it from curious visitors. It does NOT surprise me in the least that many would pick up the top. It’s like people feeling like they just HAVE TO push every button they see. Or people who visit our home and stop off at our dining room inevitably resting their grubby little hands squarely on the top of our WHITE FABRIC CHAIRS!!! Drives me insane! Enjoy your fun new purchase…hopefully for many years to come!

  2. How gorgeous this new cake stand is. Somehow I missed seeing it. Wow, they do not offer it anymore. I would search online for one for your daughter. I don’t understand people wanting to pick up items in someone’s home.
    They should look and not touch. Great purchase.

  3. A good witch needs as many cake platters as is necessary to deliver her potions! It's adorable!

  4. You will put it to good use Jackie! I think Beaulah has a great idea!
