There’s a New Girl in Town…Meet Millicent plus a Winner!
Thu 10th, Feb, 2011
I thought you all might like to meet a new girl to the BC Crew…her name is Millicent and she now lives in the States via the Beach Cottage KitchenAid Giveaway a few weeks ago and was delivered to her new owner Anne recently who has since been baking up a storm!
I got this lovely email from Anne when Milli first hit her new home…
SHE has arrived!!! i wanted to let you know right away….photos will be coming later!
yes, i call her “she.” i have a history of naming my favorite toys.
I must say I think Millicent has found a perfect new home with Anne and it all seems very appropriate to me…I mean there’s lots of white…and chalkboard walls and chocolate…couldn’t be better…
Yesterday I bonded with MILLI as we worked together to make a cake for my husband’s birthday. I was thinking of naming her “Milli Vanilli”– and today I researched the name Millicent and found it means “strong work.” Oh, so very fitting– we had an adventure involving butter, flour, sugar, eggs, unsweetened cocoa-mixed-in-boiling-water when chocolate “flew” onto the floor, my socks, the wall, and my refrigerator!! Her STRENGTH is IMPRESSIVE!!!
But we prevailed and together ended up with a beautiful chocolate layer cake! :)
I’ve included photos of our time together AND included some photos to help you THINK COLD during your heat wave…I hope it helps! :)
Now, time to make the icing….holding my breath this time, as Milli, mixes up the melted chocolate…ahhhh, I’m learning to handle her….gently…very gently.. :)
and this is where Millicent is calling home…baby it’s cold outside ;-)
and all this has made me smile and is exactly why you’ll be seeing plenty more BC Giveaways…I love the interaction, I love to hear all about you, I love to give things away and I love how the internet makes the world smaller…
Be seeing you soon I’ve some vintage china to show you..
and Anthropologie winner is Kim from White Whispers To You
…a little birdie told me she’ll soon have a new beach house to decorate
