Look what I picked up at Frenchy's last week! A Hamilton Beach vintage stand mixer which works like a charm, and has some pretty snazzy features, such as:
bowl control! Who couldn't use a little bit of that? And the "Mixguide"; a little rotating list of settings to choose from when you slide the lever. I took a video to share, and have been trying to upload it since Friday. Since it still hasn't worked, I've kind of given up.
And no, I did not buy the mixer to replace my Kitchen Aid which you're all so familiar with - I bought it to make more whipped soap! I don't want to taint the Kitchen Aid with fragrance or essential oils and have fragrance-flavoured cookies by accident. Yee-haw! I'm excited for some new soaping adventures this summer, and a sexy stand mixer like this baby will make it all the more fun. I also picked up a fantastic dresser, which with a good scrub, a fresh coat of paint, and some new knobs, will be a very useful addition to our house. It's solid wood, and is in great shape. I love its little feet. I hope that you're having a great weekend!
