It has arrived!!! Thank you grandpa and grandma! I received an early wedding gift from my grandparents today. My grandparents couldn't afford a high end mixer in their early married years and realized what a wonderful asset they were to the kitchen when they finally purchased one. Grandma decided that when her granddaughters got married that she would get them mixers. I can't wait to start baking... and making pizza dough... and bread... and cookies... oh my.
I got buttercup mainly because I love yellow and decided it would be a great heirloom to pass down to someone someday. I look at all the rust, chocolate and pea soup colored kitchen things my mom still has lying around and it brings a happy nostalgia for the past.
