Beautiful stove.

Here are a few pictures from Mom's home place. I go up now and then to check on things.

If you notice the one picture above, there is a small wood cook stove on the left, then the Tappan gas stove and the kitchen sink. My grandparents had gravity fed spring water in the kitchen. Hot water came from the little wood stove on the left, they kept a fire in that thing all year long. Very simple lifestyle, nothing fancy, hard working folks and they raised 11 kids in that house.

Part of this house is log, they had a wood stove in the kitchen, the "cylinder" stove in the middle room, and a fireplace in the front room. Lots of memories.

Here's a better picture of the old stove at the flower shop. Notice on the top, there are 12 pieces you can lift off. I looked it over pretty good today, it's just a pretty antique. It has a couple of pieces missing and the firebox is pretty much shot. It would be ideal to put on display at something like: A flower shop.
