How Cool Is This??

Now my hubby may not be too crafty with wood but he sure knows metal. He fabricated this stove in two days. Isn't this the cutest little stove you have ever seen? Bob will be leaving at the end of this month on his first hunting trip of the year with his uncle and a buddy and they will be roughing it in a tent this time around. To make sure they are warm enough Bob thought he would make them a stove for their tent. It is only about 24 inches high by 22 inches long by 12 inches wide. Boy does it throw off the heat. I think it is adorable. I honestly wouldn't mind having one to use as a decoration in a room in my house. My family thinks I've lost my marbles but I think its just too cute. There is a long black pipe that extends up from the top but I didn't get a picture of it all put together.

I'm sure my hubby would be interested in what some of you gals think of his stove. I'll pass your comments on to him.

Well I gotta run. Blessings to all my friends, old and new.

A Few New Prim Things

Recently I purchased a new piece for my kitchen. It seems like most prim homes have one of these so I thought I might as well have one too. Here is my lovely new black stove board. I purchased it from Ashley at Ashleys Primitives.

Wow is my stove dirty. I guess I better clean before taking anymore pictures in the kitchen.

Here is the link to Ashley's website. http://www.ashleysprimitives.comPlease stop over and visit her shop. You will not be disappointed with what you see. She has several other pieces I would like to purchase but they will have to wait until another time. Ashley was great to do business with and she ships quickly. The shipping on this item was very reasonable for its size. I hope you stop over and check it out.

Next I would like to show you a rack I purchased a while back from my favorite hometown shop "Country Wicks". (Chris the owner is working on her website daily and I'll let you know when it is up and running) I think this rack is really supposed to be used as a towel rack but I just added a few things that I had around the house and I think I like the display I created. The cupboard under the rack was purchased from Chris as well for my birthday last year. Sorry the picture looks so blurry.

My last picture is something my daughter Allison painted for me. She knows how much I love crows and since she loves to paint she thought I might find a place to put this. What do you think? I just love it. She used an oil paint for the crow and I think it really made it stand out off the canvas.

Well its off to do some cleaning. I hope everyone has a lovely week.
