  3. It's different but in a good sort of way, withthe price of fuel these day your new cooker may be more useful than once thought.
    Take care.

  4. You're not going to believe this but my sister bought the exact same stove last year and had her "steel company" (yes, you read that right) totally take it down and re-buff it to its original sheen, then the museum wanted it SO bad that she gave it to them.

    Ya got something there darlin'

  6. Tabor -- Five of our ten acres is covered with trees so we should be able to supply the stove with wood:)

    RK -- It is neat but not so neat,meaning it was full of ashes and in need of cleaning.

    PG -- My question was how did you post a comment from work?

    Lucy -- I'm thinking it could come in handy to cut cooking costs!

    Yvonne -- Ditto my comment to Lucy.

    Dana -- No kidding! Small world huh? Ours is already disasesembled as the clean up has begun with wire brushes, etc. Wish we had a steel company.

    Joe -- I does look pretty fancy doesn't it. The trim is nickel and can be replated. The 1896 is the year we can come up with. So exciting and you'll never believe what Ron paid for it.

  9. Wood or coal burning? That reminds me of the old stove my great-grandmother had on her farm.

  10. You certainly did find a treasure. Are you going to hook it up and use it? I learned to cook on a woodstove. When we got an electric range I was unhappy with the electricity flavor of everything cooked on it. Still am!

  11. A treasure indeed!! My brother has one similar to that and this winter when they had the ice storm and the electric was off they used it for heat and cooking! It sure came in handy!

    Love your pretty pedicure! What a nice sister you have!!
