Look What I Got...

Firstly, let me say Happy New Year to everyone!

I really hope that this year is better than the last one that I have had!!

I would like to share with you a couple of my Christmas presents.

The first one is what I bought myself in the Christmas sales......a Breville Scraper Mixer, and it came with a bonus small mixing bowl.

I just love it...I have always wanted a big mixmaster, so I though I would buy one for myself as my Christmas present.  I haven't been able to use it yet but I will very soon.  Just imagine what I will whip up next

My next present is from my dear friend Chris.  I was very spoilt and she knows exactly what I like.

I received all of this in the old school case with the vintage Christmas labels. Grandma's Best Recipes cookbook (let's see what I can whip up with my Scraper Mixer!!), a very cute snowman melt pot (I think I will be using him all year round as he is way too cute to only bring out at Christmas), a gingerbread plate, gingerbread ornament, a christmas cansiter, gingerbread cookie house, braided coasters and a heap of melts....I just love it all!!

Just before Christmas I went to a garage sale and I bought a bargain piece.  I am in the process of cleaning it up, so stay tuned as once I have finished it I will share the photos with you all....stay tuned!

Enjoy your day!


  1. I got a Breville Scraper Mixer too! I have made pizza dough and a chocolate cake and I am really pleased with it. Looks like you were spolit rotten!

  2. been looking for a mixer never thought of a breville though.

  3. Happy New Year. Great mixer, that some serious baking ahead.

    Gorgeous gifted presents..did you manage to find some vintage Christmas decorations? It was pretty dry around here this year too, but its always great to check just after the christmas when items are discounted. I did see some glass baubles at Target in the 50% sales that would blend nicely with vintage pieces too.

    Can't wait to see what you bought at the garage sale! Tam x

  4. Wonderful to 'me' Christmas gift...isn't it fun to do that...seems that's what my husband and I do...we know then that we're getting EXACTLY the item we desire.
    Love your sweet gifts from Chris...wonderful isn't it when 'friends' know us so well.


  5. Thanks girls, I still haven't used the mixer yet..very slack I know. I think they are true friends when they make such an effort to know you that well.


Thanks for taking the time to read my post. Your thoughts and comments are always welcome!
