    Luv it! If I was to choose one that would be the colour! So jealous did Santa come early this year :-)

    • sarah says:

      no, he delivered my bday present instead ;-)


      • jen says:

        Happy Birthday!!! hope the fam can make you a special cake with it! Actually its such a cool iconic retro sculpture I would probably just want to look at for a while and not let others touch it!

        • sarah says:

          I know, it’s kinda scary to even think about anything actually going in there…we all have been staring at it…even the boys are marvelling at its workmanship and lines…so funny!

  3. Laura says:

    I say it’s totally beautiful!! I want one!!

  4. Fleur says:

    Love, just love – that’s all xx

  5. Mrs Woog says:

    I have a red one. I never use it, but it makes me happy looking at it, knowing that I may bake. One day xx

    • sarah says:

      I will send Miss BC round at the weekend to whizz you up some fairy cakes…and yes I spied her in your house all sad and lonely but looking good ;-) x

  6. Alice says:

    When the page loaded and my eyes rested on that first picture my jaw just dropped…. I have wanted her twin in my kitchen for the longest time….Sigh..I don’t hink it will ever happen…Enjoy her on my behalf also…She is beautiful…Sigh

    • Alice says:

      oh happy birthday! It was my little boys birthday yesterday…ummm…I completely forgot(to be fair I am havning some serious hay fever issues making me groggy and a little spaced out) until hubby reminded me when he got home from work lol… Good thing he is too litlle to think anything of it ATM hee…hee….

    • sarah says:

      thanks so much Alice! I love her x

  7. Mandy says:

    Lucky lady, enjoy your new baby. Love the colour choice too.

  8. Tiff says:

    Gorgeous! How hard was it to choose the colour, or did the decision get made for you? That would be my biggest dilemma :) Happy baking & happy birthday Sarah :D

    • sarah says:

      as soon as I laid eyes on the light blue I knew she was the one for me…but it was tough not to go with white, I love white!

  9. Grace says:

    I have my Mom’s Kitchen Aid, but it is just basic white! I am really loving the color of yours. Was that a custom paint job? Enjoy it! What are you going to make first?

    • sarah says:

      no it’s just a regular colour….ummm I am not sure, probs my daughter will Christen her at the weekend as she loves baking xo

  10. Annie M says:

    Happy Birthday Sarah and many more to come. She is gorgeous..just love the colour too..my favourite. Will we be seeing more baking recipes dare I ask? Enjoy her and your birthday celebrations which no doubt there will be some to be indulged in, x

  11. Mummaducka says:

    A well deserved gift! Happy birthday! and wishing you many more to come! now I for one would like to see the celebratory birthday cake this weekend please! What sort are you going to make? And is there a party on the horizon?

  12. Kim Klassen says:

    oh my…yours is much prettier than mine… it’s black… this is so YOU….
    congrats lovely!

  13. Jan says:

    Oh wow! joy for you..Happy Birthday …love the pics…all the more sweeter after all the dreaming and patient…waiting..Enjoy, enjoy

  14. Julie says:

    Hap Hap Happy Birthday Sarah! You lucky girl – you must have been very good this year ;-) She is a thing of beauty – but not WHITE!!! hahaha… I think her colour is adorable though. I have a Kitchen Aid in silver – I was having a flirt with modern and minimalist there for a while but realised it so wasn’t me! Too expensive to replace the Kitchen Aid with something prettier. I have to admit that mine is a bit like Mrs Woog’s – just sits around commanding attention in the kitchen but not working very hard. Now that I have an empty nest it seems a bit pointless baking – I just eat everything I make and increase my middle aged spread. Happy baking with yours – I’m sure you will have a long and happy friendship! And enjoy your special day!

    • sarah says:

      oh thanks so much Julie, I loved the silver too…in fact there were a lot of colours I liked…I plumped for blue because I just fell in love with it when I saw it and I always think that is a good indication …the white was very close second…

      pah to middle ages spread ;-)

  15. Kim says:

    Happy Birthday Sarah! She’s beautiful!! Gone to a good home fore sure….enjoy.

  16. She is GORGEOUS!!
    Divine colour- and I’, thinking a huge warm sunny HaPpY bIrThDaY is in order- enjoy!!

    Melissa x

  17. Oh that minty green is delicious. Now a warning, once you have the mixer, you start buying it presents, like the ice cream maker & pasta making accessories. It’s totally a new member of the family. Or they start their own family with the food process, hand mixer, toaster, saucepans . . . it’s an addictive brand. I just realised on the weekend, we’ve been blessed with our red one since my 27th birthday, so that makes it 10. We use it several times a week, every week, she’s beautiful & named Spindarella. Love Posie

  18. Nel says:

    Oh lucky you Sarah, she’s beautiful :)

  19. alison says:

    Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Sarah, happy birthday to you.

    Soooo glad your appliance coordinates with the decor. LOL. It’s important to girls like us.


  20. Manda says:

    Oooh she is divine!!! You deserve her Sarah, and she fits in so well at BC, it’s like the house was made for her ;)

  21. Maria says:

    Hi Sarah,
    Oh do I ever love your KitchenAid!! Beautiful color, it looks perfect in your beach cottage :)
    I have a white one that gets used daily, I am not sure what we would do without it…. You will love it!
    Hope you are well, I am sitting in the hot laundromat admiring all of your beautiful pictures! You have such a beautiful home…..
    Happy Birthday!!
    Maria from California ;)

  22. Karen says:

    She’s lovely!! Hope you have fun with her! And you don’t make your own cake!! Happy birthday! Hope there was also some of the good bubbly stuff too x

  23. Love the color! You have been wanting one forever, haven’t you? Awesome. I gather from the comments it’s your birthday present so Happy birthday! I have a red one but I keep her in hiding because there’s only one diva allowed in my kitchen. ;) I’m thinking of painting mine though so I can keep it at the ready. Gotta match, ya know!

  24. …and I’m am giggling at the thought of you keeping yours on the coffee table. ha! You will, won’t you? ;)

  25. OH MY WORD!!! She is gorgeous… and just think, she is more than just eye-candy, she is really a work horse!!

  26. Liz says:

    Happy Birthday! She’s a beauty! I just got my daughter a pink one for her bridal shower but I must say I do prefer yours. Enjoy!

  27. Kat says:

    Ohhhhh…what a pretty new baby she is too :)
    Does she have a name?
    That colour is so you and I would also love that colour, or red…can’t decide. Which is good because I know we cannot afford one, even though we do heaps of baking each week here. (so unfair. *pout.*)
    Happy happy b’day to you dear Sarah – in the fab 40′s! :)
    What date is your actual b’day? Guess that makes you a Leo?
    Enjoy that picnic. Sounds lovely! :)

  28. Susan @ Afford Your Passions says:

    Happy birthday, Sarah!!!

    I love your Kitchenaid! I got one for Christmas – it wasn’t even something that was on my wish list – it was kind of one of those “nice to have, but I don’t really *need* it”, but I can’t see how I lived without one.

    I hope you get as much pleasure out of yours as I have been getting out of mine!

  29. Debbie says:

    Happy B’day Sarah, so happy for you that you finally got her!! I have one in white and she’s 4 years old now ….I still treat her with kid gloves… Enjoy!

  30. HRH Sarah says:

    Seriously??? It’s my birthday, too! I got my KitchenAid for my birthday a few years ago, before they made it in that GORGEOUS color! Congratulations, I know you’ve been long-suffering and patient waiting for her to arrive…

  31. Susan says:

    I KNEW that’s what you were getting but I would definitely have put money on you getting white. The ice blue is to die for though…….. yay…… now no more baking excuses. I have a lovely recipe for chocolate pavlova, perfect in the kitchen aid. I’ve told you before but I have a beauty that’s black. It’s sleek and I LOVE it but was talked out of white and I’ve always regretted it. Maybe I can give the black one to Morgan when she leaves home????? hmmmmm

    gorgeous xx

  32. Sue Meddings says:

    Happy birthday Sarah, the perfect gift!
    She is gorgeous, my fav colour :)

  33. Karen says:

    Enjoy your vintage picnic Sarah and your beautiful retro kitchen helper. Have a lovely birthday weekend!

  34. Leisa says:

    Just lovely – Happy Birthday – hope you’ve had a lovely time.
    I hope you enjoy your Kitchen Aid – I’ve had mine a couple of years now – just cream (I didn’t get to choose), but was very pleased to receive it just the same. I found it a wild beast to tame – hope you get used to it very soon – Happy Baking!

  35. ComfyChair says:

    She is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. And she has settled in nicely, too.

    Hope your birthday is splendiferous!

  36. SHE is beautiful.
    Happy Birthday too. x

  37. loulou says:

    Happy Birthday Sarah, enjoy your vintage picnic, it sounds divine ;) Neen

  42. Hi Sarah, fantastic to see your beautiful Kitchen Aid and the colour looks so great with everything. I have been asking the birthday fairy for one for a few years now. But when I do get one I will be checking out your recipes for sure and pics as well. Love your site it makes me smile especially on our cild wet days down here in Melbourne. Enjoy your birthday present. Cheers Shelly.

  44. Rochelle says:

    Happy Birthday Sarah. Love your Kitchen Aid, she is a true beauty! I got a white one from Father Christmas this year and I simply love her. Baking has never been soooo easy. Enjoy!
    P.S. She is a stunning colour!

  45. Simply LOOOOVE. xx Oh and Happy Happy Birthday to you!!! xx

  46. Jacqui says:

  47. Candy says:

    Happy Birthday, probably belated at this point in time. Love your new baby…my color! Now, if I only baked, maybe I’d want one:)

  48. Delcie says:

    Enjoy her! Happy Baking with your daughter…and happy Birthday! Kitchen Aids are gorgeous but my Kenwood is still going strong after 20 years so I don’t see one arriving here in the near future.

  49. Shelly says:

    Happy bday Sarah! I looooooooooove your new toy. I have wanted the pale pink one for 15+years now…..one of these years Santa will come through!! Let us know what you use her for. Friends of mine say they couldn’t live without one.

  50. Tamara says:

    LOVE HER! But she’s too good to do kitchen work!
    She needs to be put on a plinth and worshipped!
    Happy Birthday Sarah X

  51. Jenna Wright says:

    I love her, she’s beautiful! I’ve wanted one for so long, but I can’t choose a color, there are just too many to pick from! I love that blue!

  52. She is beautiful! So….glad she finally landed in Beach Cottage Land!

  53. Anonymous says:

  54. Beth says:

  55. jenn forest says:

    I <3 her!!!!! She is so pretty and the most perfect color!!!!! I have the fondest memories of this mixer growing up and apending many, many hours in my memere's kitchen…….my cousin inherited hers but I have my own (a gift from my hubby on our first x-mas) Mine is classic white and not quite as stylish but I LOVE it all the same! Enjoy and happy cooking!

  56. how2home says:

    LOVE this mixer :) You chose the perfect color for your place!

  57. Angie Smith says:

    Welll God bless you ! You finally got one ! Cant wait to see what you cook !

  58. Sarah says:

    I have the aqua sky color which is just a shade lighter and it is my favorite thing in my kitchen. Made me a better cook and baker. So glad you finally got your heart’s desire. :) She’s a beaut.

  59. Diana says:

    CONGRATS!!!! It is the perfect choice for your kitchen!!… I just got my “baby” a few months ago… it is cobalt blue.. MY FAV COLOR… right now my kitchen doesn’t exactly go with it, but it is a work in progress!! LOL… I know you are thrilled!! I STILL can’t believe I have one!! :-) Thanks to the hubs and my expert shopping skills!!

  60. Kim H says:

    YEs!! Love!! And very jealous of her:)

  61. rachel says:

    oh my….love. love. love! and…the absolute perfect color! ;)

  62. She looks so good, I think you should keep her right there on your coffee table, Sarah! hehehe!
    xoxo laurie

  63. Oh Im so jealous. She is exactly what I want too. She is on my dreams list. Shall eagerly watch your discoveries with her. Fiona

  64. Jeannie-JB says:

    I looooove my KitchenAid. I’ve had her for years {since I wanted to make a gingerbread house with my little ones and the recipe defied my other mixer} and she’s never let me down. Only thing is, she’s white and I haven’t looked at them in soooo long, I had no idea that they came in this beautiful color.

    I’m going to be re-decorating a small beach front condo that’s been rented (by the previous owners) for years – If I could achieve half of the beachy-ness you have I’d be so happy. I think this lovely colored KitchenAid might help, don’t you??

  65. Jos says:

    Divine – a perfect fit! get cooking/baking and share the love – can’t wait to read about your adventures with Miss K-A!!!!

  66. Wendy says:

    Oooo, very jealous, we’re off to USA in October, I just may treat myself.

  67. Mog says:

    Perfect color, looks just like mine, my favorite thing in the kitchen. But yours looks lovely on the coffee table.

  68. I Love that color of blue and She is perfect for your kitchen. So glad she made her way to you!

  69. Surely Sarah says:

    Beautiful colour! I finally got a lovely red Breville mixer, looks retro like the KitchenAid, it’s just so lovely it inspires me to bake!

  70. Sarah says:

    Love the color! I detail mine just like a guy would detail his car. Gotta keep it in great shape and looking pristine! Don’t you just love looking at it?

  71. Sarah says:

    What is the official color name ? Is it ice or aqua sky?

  72. Melissa says:

    Oh, I am in love, and lust! That is just gorgous, you deserve it!

  73. katerina says:

    She’s lovely !!

  74. Kelly Waldron says:

    Me likey!
    Sshe is very cute. I am saving for one but still can’t decide on a colour, which seems to be a common problem.

  75. Andrea says:

    How lovely! Would you mind tellimg me where to get that great BW wall decor with the names printed on? is it wood or canvas?
    looking forward to reading and seeing more of your beach cottage, it is just perfect!

  76. Kim says:

    Great choice! I just got one same color for Christmas, a present to myself! I have always lusted after them, and finally, she is mine! I made homemade marshmallows first…that broke her in really good! Been getting attachments, maybe get crazy one day and try to make sausage or something! Happy mixing!
