it has been full of grief~it has been full of joy~ it has been a learning experience~ it has been humbling~ it has exasperated me to tears~it has been a revelation in the character of God~it has revealed the character of me~it has been rewarding...
when two become one.

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!)

One day last fall,
I was visiting with my daughter about her *new* stove.
I thought she had gone to an appliance store
turns out she had been shopping Craigslist.
Guess what she bought?
that exact same model!
Don't ya love it

It was full

pics and articles:

I like the blue one, don't you?
I love the fridge...but not the defrosting part.
some things never change...

rest of the story.
