most of you know i was married to the love of my life nearly 3 years ago…but what you prbably don’t know if that the one place we registered was WILLIAM SONOMA…you see i sort of consider my self a bit of a chef…well, untrained for sure….but i love cooking…and even more than that i love pretty things in my kitchen….look at this lovely pot of coq au vin in my favorite LE CREUSET pot from  WILLIAM SONOMA (i secretly think my LE CREUSET pot makes anything i put in it taste better;)

we also are the proud owners of a beautiful set of ALL CLAD pots and pans (again thanks to our lovely WILLIAM SONOMA wedding registry)…every morning jasmine helps me make her scrambled eggs in a little ALL CLAD pan (now, i don’t want to brag, but jasmine says i make the best scrambled eggs ever)…i truly think when you have lovely appliances in your kitchen, it makes it a place you want to be….so trust yourself….let your inner chef free & fill your kitchen with beautiful pots & pans….i promise, everything will taste & look better…..these are the beautiful ALL CAD pans we have….

and of course, it is no secret that i am a coffee devote….my morning routine looks a little like this….

the sweetest thing about my coffee is this….one of my closest friends gave us the beautiful cannister set from our WILLIAM SONOMA registry…so every morning while i make my strong yummmy coffee, i think of her….and here are some of the things currently on my WILLIAM SONOMA wish list….

    I LOVE Williams Sonoma and they have so many lovely items but I have dreaming about having a kitchen aid for the last 5 years!

    My family and I have never owned Willams Sonoma so this would be a wonderful gift. I would use the giveaway to give my mom her 27th wedding anniversary gift to a wedding that she never got. She also enjoys cooking and glows in the kitchen when she does. Thanks for this opportunity!

    Any new sets of cookware would be a favorite :)

    Wasn't able to find the public link of my registry. Perhaps this will work?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway. I love Williams-Sonoma so much. Cooking & photography are probably my two favorite things. Unfortunately moving throughout college has left my apartment lacking so my wish list is rather large...

    My favorite item is definitely the Le Creuset Teakettle in Dijon.
    Hot tea is the best way to end the long cold winter nights in the midwest.

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway and have a happy holiday season.

    I absolutely love Williams Sonoma! Thank you for such a wonderful giveaway. If I win, I will put it toward a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, that I have been wanting forever. $200 toward it would be awesome!

    OMG I had so much fun creating my gift registry. There were endless products to drool over, that are not only beautiful but practical. My favorite items are the artisan ruffled pie dish and loaf gorgeous and perfect for entertaining. I also love the Beaba baby food maker and the coordinating travel bag...we're expecting in the Spring, and these products couldn't be more perfect. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I'd be so ecstatic and blessed to wiin this amazing contest!

    I just created my first registry!! The link to the registry is the following:

    Sean and I are getting married on January 28, 2012 - the week of our 10th anniversary. We would love the Calphalon Frittata pans after seeing them in action at a demonstration held at our local Williams Sonoma. We love their classes!!

    I would LOVE a french press. Amazing!
  21. Dec 21-2010 , 08:10PM
    Our first registry!

    We made stemware a priority. We keep breaking wine glasses around the house. It seems we'd be safer drinking out of plastic but we thought we'd give tumblers a shot so we stuck several sets of the monogrammed Reidel Wine Tumblers on there!

    Drew and Margie

    i would love the classic kitchen aid my all time favorite :)

    I so enjoy a glass of full-bodied cabernet in the evening, and have always thought of how wonderful it would be to own a beautiful set of Reidel stemware. Alas, it's never been a financial priority! This would be a marvelous gift. :-)

    Thank you!!

    I just added the All-Clad d5 Stainless Steel Sauté/Simmer Pan, 4-Qt . I hope that I get it, so that I can make stir-fries, delicate sauces, and sauteed vegetables!

    We are still rolling with a KitchenAid mixer from the 1940's. It works great, but I love the look of the more modern design.
  31. Dec 24-2010 , 09:38AM
    Hi Elizabeth... I absolutely love Williams Sonoma... so thank you so much for this giveaway...

    I registered for the Cuisinart Soup Maker, Registry ID: 2620495

    Happy Holidays... and thank you again...

    I adore WS almost as much as I adore your blog!
    I go in there and stay for hours just mulling about dreaming of all the fancy gadgets I want to play with in my kitchen. My favorite item on our registry is the monogramed stemware. Both me and my better half are notorious for breaking glasses while washing them, which is why we registered for so much stemware.

    Just in case this isn't closed.

    I just put a griddle pan on my registry because my sweetie likes to make pancakes in the morning and I feel this is a habit that should be encouraged!

    I love how peaceful and inspirational your blog is. It isn't crammed with stuff to buy or advice to give. It just shows off beautiful images and words.

    What a fun giveaway! I just added All-Clad Stainless Steel Canisters to our registry!
