Re: My New KitchenAid Stand Mixer

Yes, I really do love this mixer both for what it can do and for how it looks. I am fortunate that I do have counter space for it but I like things clean looking - not piled up. I was afraid it would look like a big pile of metal but fortunately, it looks like it has always been here. It's in a pla...

Re: Paging Smitcompton

Hi Annette, Funny thing is, I didn't have near the patience before I started this that I do now. ;)) And it's not even over. The ottoman and loveseat got delivered with spots, one on ottoman was sticky. Guys came back to clean it just after delivering it. Got the one out, but sticky line only came h...

Re: My New KitchenAid Stand Mixer

I agree Ellen - it is heavy so if you had to heave ho it out of a cabinet or closet every time you wanted to use it you just might skip it. Here's hoping you still have room! Is your kitchen redo in the works or still the planning stages? More excitement for you!! It's still in planning, vaguely. T...

Re: Paging Smitcompton

No, you are remembering correctly. After the defective first set of furniture went back, I was sent a reimbursement for it, without even asking. As much as I wanted to go with Flexsteel again as it had served me so well the last 15 years, the fact was they have changed their cushions. They just were...

Hello my friends! :wavey: MGR, maybe all of the above! lol No, I really hadn't come back because there was no good news until about 10 days ago when the new painter redid the livingroom and the new furniture was delivered.

Hey Annette, I had promised you pics of my livingroom once it was done, but unfortunately this LR redo has taken more twists and turns than the Screaming Eagle at Six Flags.

I need to listen to all the songs on this entire thread, but I love the classic Christmas carols and I love discovering new ones!

Re: AGBF, It's time for the music!

I've been looking for a different version of Silent Night. My current favorite is by Jewel. What I want: No loud singing for the first verse. All three verses. In English. Sung by a woman. Very hard to find another version (other than Jewel) that does the song right, IMO. But I'd love any suggestio...

Re: Holiday Cookie Recipes

This is a new recipe I tried out this year, and they are dangerously good. Rich, but not in a heavy way. (read, you could eat a LOT of these lol) And really simple and fast to make. Roasted Pecan Clusters 3 cups chopped pecans (I lean toward a rough chop) 3 Tbsp. melted butter 12 oz. chocolate candy...

Deb, I would be interested to hear the difference if you try these. I don't think I am going to make any cookies for Christmas this year, Ellen. I bought canned tart cherries for the first time in several years to make the cherry cakes my family used to love on Christmas. (I was shocked that each c...

Re: Help please! Anyone used this interior paint color?

Well, they should rush order your new furniture so that you will have it in time for the holidays! You're being a good sport about it all - hope your wait isn't nearly as long as you think.

Re: Help please! Anyone used this interior paint color?

*sigh* Ok, the furniture got here, and , there are issues. Namely, the backs are "crooked" on couch and loveseat. The shoulders have a gentle arch/slope, then it runs straight across. I first noticed the love seat, the right side was lower than the left. The more I looked at it, the more i...
