Spring has sprung in southern Oregon and it’s beautiful in our neck of the woods. I wish I could bottle up a little of our spring and pass it on.
But today, instead of sending the fresh flowers and sunshine, I want to send one lucky winner some happiness, delivered right to your front door.
A little springy something, I might add.
One lucky winner will win:
This beautiful KitchenAid Stand Mixer, in the new pearl white, is one of the new vibrant color choices that KitchenAid is offering in their high performance appliance collection, which also includes blenders, food choppers, hand blenders and hand mixers in Crystal Blue, Green Apple, Majestic Yellow and Tangerine.
Like all KitchenAidÂ® Stand Mixers, ArtisanÂ® Series models have a power hub that accommodates more than a dozen attachments for making everything from pasta and ice cream to sausage.
My friend Debbie, owner of The Hip Hostess apron site, has been a part of RE since I started blogging back in 2006. This time she is giving away a beautiful apron just like the one I’m wearing, except with black rick-rack.
Isn’t it darling?
I love the fit. And you can get more custom designs by visiting The Hip Hostess Etsy Shop!
Check it out!
I’m happy to also give away a signed copy of my book, The Reluctant Entertainer. It’s a perfect gift idea — or if you are a reluctant hostess, you’ll find encouraging words in the pages, just for you!
ANSWER this question to WIN:
If you win this beautiful gift today, what will be the first thing you’d make with your new KitchenAid Stand Mixer (and of course, as you’re wearing your new apron)?
