I would treasure this if it were mine...


My mom cooked on a stove very similar to this till I was in 3rd or 4th grade.

I remember the old cookstove, only the one Mom used was all black, with a little silver trim.

Surely worth a lot of money by now.

My grandparents had one like that at their beach house on Puget Sound.

I hate to admit that I have never seen a stove like that in person, in use. I'm sure my mother must have had one, but by the time I came along my parents already had new appliances. Some people my age remember when they didn't have a TV. I can't remember not having one.

I would love to own it. so beautiful to me, i would not want to cook on it but i would like to own it. most of the people in KY when i was a child had similar stoves. some were a lot bigger than this but not white. Miss Axie fed 24 children with her wood stove. she had 6 sets of twins

Hello, it is a treasure. I do love the new stoves and oven, I can not imagine cooking on this vintage stove. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

This is a fine example of the classic book stove. My mother cooked and baked with one of these.

That is so cool, isn't it? I love kitchen oldies like this, Rose. I love those old pots on the stove too. I'm wondering, were those for tea or coffee?

Oh, looking so cute! Thank you for visiting me.
With watercolor, it helps me to find a good subject first.
Not with too many details or a difficult texture (such as snow, or fur), with colors you like, and enough countrast to make the subject stand out. Saw your cone flowers, that would be perfect for me.
But if you like subjects like antique things like this cute white stove with the pitchers on top, a watercolor could be a great momento for your kitchen.
Oh, and good watercolor paper is a must (Fabriano, or Winsor, or Arches). I do much better with rough paper than smooth.
I better stop here, before I make this into a tutorial:)
If you need any help with the process, let me know.
