Introductions

I am one of those people who likes to name things. I think all important things should have a name. Don't you? I mean, my children each have a name, my husband had one when I met him and nearly all my friends have names. Names help give us identity. Some things I own already have their own identity and so I think it is fitting that they also have names. For instance I have a wonderful Michael Kors handbag. Her name is Pricilla. If I ask my children to go get Pricilla one of them returns with a beautiful tan leather purse with gold fittings. So one of the things that we have added to our kitchen remodel is so special that it too will have a name. Meet Jules....


She is a 48" double oven range by BlueStar. She's got 6 burners and a grill. While the photo here may look like she is red, she is actually Raspberry. BlueStar started off as Prizer-Painter in 1880 making coal ranges. Over the next 100 years they expanded their business to other heating appliances and eventually started making ranges under other brand names including Garland which was Julia Child's range. This is how Jules got her name. In 2002 they relaunched their business under the BlueStar name making professional ranges for the home.

We are so excited she is home. She'll be hooked up soon and then I have to arrange for a BlueStar person to come and calibrate her.

PS The brick will be painted white.
