Pretty and Blue

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek



Since I first used one at my MIL's house I have been wanting a stand mixer...a nice kitchen Aid maybe. I was never able to get one - they cost too much. And our kitchen is on the small side so I don't even know that I could justify the loss of counter space right now...or at least that is what I thought until I found this in my mother's basement..



Isn't she pretty...



This was my grandmother's mixer. It was a little dirty, but I cleaned it up as best I could and best of all...it still works.

So now I have my mixer...and it is totally worth the loss of counter space!!

  1. Well that is just about the best way to get something you want!! I love it!

    I have a Kitchen Aid. One of the beaters has been stuck on the dang thing for two years. Yours probably works better. :)

  2. Vintage! Awesome! Yours is way cooler than the Kitchen Aid.

  3. My grandma has one just like that except it's avacado; she still uses it all the time. There's probably years left on that little beauty you've got, they just don't make them like they used too. Enjoy, it's going to look great in your kitchen!

  10. Sentimental value and it does work too? Doesn't get much better than that! Love the color. So retro and probably worth a pretty penny or two.

  14. I also aquired my stand mixer from my grandmother. I use it constantly, I don't know what I would do without it. I really love the color of your S.U.M. It's beautiful! And they are really worth the lost counter space!

    Things used to be investments... now things are built to throw away.
