My "new" 1948 Kitchenaid!
1948 was a good year for my grandpa professionally, so he and my grandma remodeled the kitchen. I wish I had pics of that!! As part of that remodel, they bought a new Kitchenaid mixer. I never met my grandpa, but I remember my grandma well. She made a LOT of "brown bread" in that mixer. When she passed, my mom got the mixer, and has used it for many years. Mom doesn't bake much anymore, so we arranged a swap: her 60-year-old mixer for my smaller 25-year old mixer. So now I have a "new" mixer in my new kitchen! :)
