Pink Kitchen Tools Welcome, Frog Knick Knacks...not so much.

A girlfriend of mine tells a story about how she once showed interest in a little frog ornament while out shopping with her mom.  Next thing she knew, she was the proud owner of a full-on collection of frog knick knacks.   As it turns out, she's not too keen on frogs but once her mother bought her a couple, word got out that she was "frog obsessed" and one thing led to another... 

For your collection, Nicki.  Ribbit! (cute frog image courtesy of the Graphic Fairy!)
Such is the story of my pink kitchen tool and appliance collection.  In contrast to the frog collection, each and every one of these pretty pinks were a welcome addition to my kitchen!   My parents, my husband and sister-in-law have all contributed to my pink collection over the years for my birthday and Christmas.  I don't mind being "the girl who collects pink kitchen utensils!"  Unlike frog knick knacks, they are quite useful and compliment my cottage style kitchen so nicely!

This pink KitchenAid mixer mixes up a mean cookie dough!

These pretty pink mixing bowls are always on display on my kitchen counter...and they often show up at dinner parties filled with salad.  There is never any question about who they go home with at the end of the night.
Toast just tastes better when it comes from a pink toaster!

Our friends are most amused by our pink coffee maker as my husband is the true coffee connoisseur in our family. Hey, real men drink coffee from pink coffee pots, right?

I had to hurry and photograph these baking tools before my boys saw them out on the counter and thought we were going to bake cookies today!  Seriously, they see the hand mixer and immediately have a hankering for frosting!

Thank you so much for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed a peek at my pink collection.  Do you have a collection that someone else started for you, welcome or not?  I'd love to hear about it!  I so enjoy reading your comments!  They make my day!  I will be joining the Pink Saturday party with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound this weekend.  Come join us if you love pretty pinks! 

Oh, and don't forget to come back and shop the Junk Salvation flea market with me!  Tomorrow is the big day and if you don't live in the Portland area, I am planning to share the eye candy with you right here in a special post!

Best Wishes and Blessings!
