I think you'll enjoy it luvs!

No, mine isn't pink (it's green and the 6-qt Pro bowl-lift model). Although I strongly support the "Cook for the Cure" program - somehow being an old divorced guy I thought I would have to spend way too much time trying to explain to my friends why I had a pink mixer.

Congratulations, luvs. I have always wanted one, maybe not pink. I need to make some room on my counter first. Some other appliance will just have to go.

No, it wasn't Ruth. Actually, it was 'decorated' (I use that term loosely) by the original owner, who's husband was a career military man. I always wondered how a soldier type could have lived with all that pink.

Anyone else here remember the fad back in the 1950's - charcoal gray and pink?

Michael, my house (and all the identically matched ones on my street) were built in 1955. I have the original pink bathtub, which I actually like. The previous owners pulled out the remaining pink, but my neighbor has it - it's a pink sink, pink loo and pink and grey tiles.

The worst thing about this house (aside from no cable and no a/c) was the walls that had been sponge-painted baby pink and baby blue in the entry way and all down the hallway.
