Since before my existence my family has been coming to my Aunt and Uncles lake house. It is hands down my favorite place and every year we go there is a bitter sweet sadness in leaving. The area is famous for their wine regions and brewery's, incredle lake views, masses of farmland, beautiful hikes through waterfalls, and historic homes and buildings. One of the staples of all visits, Mackenzie and Childs. You may have noticed their Courtly Check print on Keeping Up With The Kardasians. Every year I come here I know I won't be leaving without something from their barn house sale (We plan our visits around these sales). And how can you not? A $100 hand blown and painted base for $25?! Sales up to 75%-80% off! People by the masses show up to this sale from all over the country. This year we came a week before and beat the crowds of over 15,000 people who attend the 65-acre estate farm. As you can see I got quite the armful, and only paid a FRAGMENT of their price. The best par, is each peice I have from Mackenzie reminds me of my favorite lake house and all the memories through the years I have had there. It brightens up my kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom in my humble LA apartment.
Be sure to check out their website, their section in Neiman Marcus, OR make a trip up to the estate yourself!
