Countertop Change-Up


Posted by Rebecca, January 19th, 2011

I have spread my illness to Mike, so we were both home today drowning our sicky sorrows on the couch. My fever and nausea have morphed into sneezing, coughing and watery eyes, which I will GLADLY accept. At least now I can sit up, as of this afternoon.

So I was just in the kitchen, debating whether or not to have soup, toast or soup and toast for dinner, when I realized that I never showed you pictures of my beloved stand mixer in it’s new permanent home. Since I am still not at the top of my game, I didn’t have the energy to find the camera, find the memory card and upload pictures. So I decided to take pictures with my iPhone quickly. Being the overachiever that I am, I remember that I installed the Hipstamatic app a while back and never used it. Time to put it to use!

We previously kept fresh veggies in our Ikea Stockholm bowl in the corner…

But now…

I tried some of the different film styles that come with the app…

The view finder was reeeally hard to work, or maybe I’m just sick and impatient. But I wanted to get some pictures of how small this thing actually looks on the counter. We weren’t going to keep it out, but when we saw the small footprint it left, we loved it as some new countertop eye candy. Here are some standard iPhone pictures of the size…

I hate cluttered countertops, so this worked out nicely and adds some pretty shine ๐Ÿ™‚

Plus have I mentioned how easy it is to make cookies now?? I love you, stand mixer.

Now back to that soup….

  2. I must be hungry… because I read that as “salad mixer” and then got REALLY confused when I saw the picture. “Did KitchenAid make some sort of salad attachment?! Oohhhhh she said STAND mixer!” *facepalm*

    I got a stand mixer in silver for Christmas too and I LOVE it! It’s so big, I can’t imagine having to pull it out all the time, and it really is some great counter-top eyecandy! Unfortunately, it takes up way more space on our counter… and it also helped us to discover that out upper cabinets our not level… there is only ONE spot in the kitchen that the mixer fits. Very annoying!
