Happy Chaos »

I want it!

On a whim, I stopped at an antique store yesterday.  I’m always looking for photo props, and I thought it would be fun to look around.  (As much fun as a person can have while having heart palpitations watching her kids touch everything!)

The main thing that made it worth visiting, though, was the smell as I walked in the door.  It was as if I had just walked into Grandma June’s house.  Such a rush of nostalgia…missing my grandparents and wishing life wasn’t zipping by so fast!

This antique store had room after room of goodies.  We walked into a tiny room with such an odd assortment of items.  The main piece in the room was a gas stove.  I can’t even begin to tell you how perfect this would be for our house.  (This distracted me so much, I didn’t even notice the guns hanging beside it!)


I’d imagine a stove exactly like this one once graced our kitchen, right next to the white metal 50’s cabinets and stainless steel countertops that are still there.

This stove has a broiling compartment on the left.  This makes the actual baking portion on the right rather small.  (Guess they figured out to combine those a bit later.)  Shouldn’t matter much to a girl who barely cooks!  In our house, the stove’s practically just a decoration anyway.

On top of the stove were the original pamphlets.  Who saves pamphlets for 60 years?  Somebody who takes very good care of their stove, that’s who!  A stove like that has to be in fine working order, right?

 And, it’s a bargain!

Think “Mr. Safety Management” Mark will go for it?  Or, maybe the more important question is…

When did I get so old I started drooling over a stove?
