Meet the newest member of our family......

Dorothy! Isn't she lovely! When I saw my cousin Amy's pink Kitchen Aid last Christmas I was instantly in love! I have wanted one ever since but they are just so expensive.....A few days ago Ben came in the side door through the kitchen (he never does that) and I caught a glimpse of a box and then I heard him sit something heavy on the table. I whipped around to look and it was her!!! My very own pink Kitchen Aid! She's finally mine! Molly and I decided her name should be Dorothy. I can't wait to really put her to work, we have only made cookies and a cake so far. I bought the ingredients last night to make a few deserts for Thanksgiving and I can't wait to start!
It feels like she has always been here now. When I walk through the kitchen and see her sitting there it just makes me smile. She's home.

Awww. Congratulations! She's so cute. iIf I ever get my hearts' desire, my Dorothy will be red. Alhtough, you are kind of swaying me with the pink. But the pink wouldn't go with my kitchen. Loving those bowls, too.

A Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, dearie!

I love that pink , but it would never work in my kitchen. Mine is almond, bought on a clearance. You go with what works...

I am jealous! My sister just got one in green, excuse me, pistachio. Your pink one is pretty on your counter, especially with the pyrex. I wish we had a side door, maybe that is why I don't have a Dorothy? Have a great Thanksgiving!
PS Your dolls are sooo cute!

Artsy Momma said...

Oh so jealous!

Tanya said...

Yes -- she IS beautiful. I bought a red one 3 years ago and now they have come out w/the prettiest colors .. sob .. I NEED a pink one!!

I have been wanting one of those for ages!! You are soooo lucky. I would love a pink one. I might see if santa can bring me one for christams!
Take care & God bless

Very nice!! I have seen them but don't know what they can do. I should go have a look!

sewpink said...

Yes, she is. I love the pink one. I had to settle for white, and not quite as nice as yours, but I love her just the same. It is so easy to clean and use. I would not trade it for the world. I have had mine for 5 years. What a great Xmas gift.

tara said...

Sweet! I have a red one and love love it. And I love your pastel mixing bowls too. Happy baking!

Jaime said...

Aaaah, that is cool. What a good boy. I got my white one as a hand me down from my mom when they came out with the colors she bought a new one. I would love a color one but having one at all is a blessing. They are awesome. I use mine a lot. They make good mashed potatoes and knead bread just right, even though sometimes it is fun to knead dough by hand. I bet the husband is expecting an especially yummy and big thanksgiving dinner now.

Michaela Dunn Leeper said...

Oh, she is DARLING!!!! I got a white one last CHRISTmas. I forgot what I named her though, isn't that HORRIBLE?!?!?! LOL

Congrats on your new baby!

Tyler and Brenda Foss said...

I have wanted one of those for a long time as well. I love the color. I hope you enjoy using Dorothy :)

Dorothy is a beauty!

I don't have a KA mixer, and I think I would probably pick the red since it would go better in my kitchen. But the pink is REALLY pretty. :)

Ceylon Sapphire said...

My desire for a Dorothy has followed me a very long time.... hope that your Dorothy brings you and your family many happy hours of play!

pipnmillycreations said...

She is beautiful! Mine is cream and is well-used and well-loved, but I still eye up the other colours when I see them!
Happy Thanksgiving!

HighlandGhillie said...

So pretty! I love the bowls along side her too... I have the same blue one :)

I LOVE YOUR PINK DOROTHY,I want one

Will Turner said...

I am going to give my wife Elizabeth one for Christmas.
I need to know where you got this, so I can get her one.
My friend Jack Sparrow already got his wife one(but it was red)

Thank you for your time!

That is so exciting. I felt the same way when I go my Tangerine one. My coworkers pitched in and bought her for me since I always bake for them. I named her Tanja

Will Turner,

Most any department store should have them. My husband found mine at Bed Bath and Beyond, but I know you can also get them at Belk, Sears, and Macys.
Hope this helps!

Thank You so much!

Will Turner,

ahh, that's so sweet.
good luck on finding it!

Love,
Sparkles

Will Turner said...

I found it at Sears, and she loved it!

Sassy.M,

Well what do you think?

Sparkles,
Elizabeth thought it was sweet too. But my dear friend Jack Sparrow didn't think so. He tells me to spend my time thinking about treasure.

Will Turner,

I am SOOOO happy for you. Let me know if your wife is willing to share you(blushes)
I wish my husband were you. Whether your the real Will Turner or not. Or perhaps your Orlando Bloom! Either one I'll take!

Love,
Sparkles

Does anyone have any idea what I can get Elizabeth for Valentine's Day?

P.S. Sparkles,Alice, I'm already taken.

Jack sparrow said...

I think she would love a treasure chest of gold and diamonds.

p.s I will go with you to help you find it.

Will Turner said...

Jack,
WOW! You visit the Handmade Dress too? I had no idea. Thanks for the idea. I was thinking about getting her a dress. But I'm not sure if she likes those too much.

I will consider your advice.
Thank you for your time!

It seems as if our sweetheart is back. I really don't know sweetie, but flowers never fail.

Love,
Sparkles

Will Turner said...

Sparkles,

Thank you for the advice. I will think about it. But I'm not sure what her favorite flowers are. And I'm really thinking about getting her a treasure box.

Thank you for your time!
