family circle - silver with character

This is our latest addition to the koolaman designs silver with character collection, the family circle pieces. The matching necklace and bracelet is the perfect gift to celebrate the special relationships in your life. It's the perfect gift Mothers Day for Mums and with plenty of room for pendants this one is perfect for Grandmas too.

What's cooking good looking?

This little beauty came my way this last week. After years of wishing and hoping, finally I could justify the expense of buying this shiny kitchen appliance. A friend said to me a couple of years ago, after I commented on her kitchen aid mixer, "it's just a mixer". I now know that she was only being kind and there is a difference between the one I have used all these years and my new kitchenaid mixer .
My Dad bought the second hand mixer for me that I have faithfully used for the past ten years. It's now retired to the shearers quarters, to be used for a short period only once a year by the cook at shearing time.
I do love my new mixer. AND I love how I can use it and the kids and I don't need to wear our ear plugs when it's turned on.. I mean we can actually still have a conversation when it's mixing. To justify this gorgeous appliance I have said to my husband that it was a necessity to prevent 'industrial deafness' for the members of our family.

There is one problem though, I want to use it all the time but there is a limit to the amount of fluffy cakes and yummy slices we can have at Koolaman.
