a cozy fireplace
a great conversation piece!

We were given this old cook stove from my husbands uncle. He had sold his house and did not have any want or need for it anymore. He was given it as a wedding gift in the 1940's. It was in such good shape all we did was clean it up and insert a fake log that plugs in and makes a crackling noise and when lit up looks like a real fireplace. I would like to find a heating element and insert that as well so that it actually would put out heat, but can't find one yet small enough.

You certainly don't find these stoves in that kind of shape. It, belonging to a family member, makes it more special.

I love how you have it decorated. Posted: 11:19 pm on October 3rd
