Girls, please meet my good friend, vintage wood cook stove! Many of the older homes here in the Appalachians have wood coke stoves in them. See my red and white enamelware? That was a basement find!
No, I don't cook on my stove but back in my "pioneer wannabe" days, I'm sure I would have. I do use it as a food warmer and I did cook on it once- just to say that I have, but it generally just keeps us warm and keeps me happy. We bought this stove from the previous owner of this house for $75.00! She was going to take it with her to "town" but I'm so glad she didn't. Bless her heart, I know she misses it!
My stove is decorated for Summer in this pic and I'm always changing it up. It doubles as counter and storage space when not in use. I actually miss it during the warm weather months but then I can have fun decorating it. This stove is a real gift from the Lord because I love to play with fire! Even when I was a young girl of 10, it was my job to do the burning in the family. I made candles too and I had them all over my room- even in my improvised canopy bed! Yikes! It's a miracle I didn't burn our house down!
It's nice and warm here in my kitchen! stick around and leave a comment!
Love you all!
