Back in 1990-ish, we lived in a different 1900's farmhouse;
This one I was determined to restore.
We lived on an acre
with chickens, a garden, and wood heat.
We used it for heating the back of the house and cooking.
It was great for simmering soups and warming up food in the oven.
I never did master baking in the oven, though:)
This was before re-purposed was even a word.
I just knew what I liked
and had to figure out a way to make it practical!
Daddy's helper is now the daddy to the triplets!
Life was simple then and always an adventure.
I loved that stove
and all of the memories of that time in my life.
( I really wish I could find more pictures of the stove and house
but I put them somewhere for scrapbooking and now I can't find them!)
