Isn't she lovely?

I received my first KitchenAid mixer at 17 when I graduated high school.  My aunt Judy bought it for me.  It was white and I loved it.  After 17 years of use, making cake icing has started to wear down the motor so I decided to replace it with this gorgeous girl.  The color is aqua sky and it is going to match the backsplash that I have picked out for the kitchen.

This is beautiful Brandy!!! I have wanted a Kitchen Aid for years. I plan to purchase one for our new home. I was tickled when I saw it in all stainless steel which is the backdrop color for my new kitchen. Once we move in the color may change because I know I will use a pop of color for a wow factor! The aqua is so pretty! What do you like about it the most (kitchen aid)?

Please join my blog at I would love to follow your journey!

Congratulations and Happy Baking!!

Love it! My hand mixer recently died and I'm so coveting my first kitchen aid stand! Enjoy, she is pretty! I want the lemon chiffon even though all of my other appliances ate red. The soft yellow is just so pretty!

You are right Julie, the colors are amazing and I really liked the lemon chiffon too. I just wasn't sure it would fit in my decor. I ended up purchasing the antique copper. Not as bright and pretty as I would like it to be but it is an awesome machine.

I love the antique copper and the lemon chiffon. You gals have good taste. My old one was white and I hated that it wasn't one of the pretty colors. The thing I like best about KA is that they last a long time. I had my white one for 17 years and it was still a great mixer. The only reason I bought a new one was the color. I probably could have kept the first one forever. Also, I am a cake decorator and icing is really hard on the mixer's motor. I knew my first one was slowing down a little from all the icing so I gave it to my mom to make room for my shiny new one. She doesn't make icing, so she will likely get many years use out of it.
