On My Mind~ The wood stove

What's on my mind today?

Well..I'm wondering how long it will be before the Woodman will be able to install this little old lady!
I think she's getting tired of living under our pergola :-(
She doesn't look very pretty right now.. but hubby assures me she'll be great once we clean her up and touch up some paintwork!
Today I'm joining Rhonda Jean  at Down To Earth,  for her Friday link-up.


  1. Oh I am so jealous of your stove lol. I have an old one down our shed, not as "flash" as yours though. I have been trying to get hubby to bring it up under our shaded area so I can use it! Maybe one day...

    Are you putting this inside your house? How lovely.

  2. Oh she is a grand lady indeed! :) Once she is installed, she will bless you with delicious food all year round ;0D

    Blessings to you today Trish,


  3. Ohhh I know the feeling well! I really thought I would have my upstairs bathroom with my claw foot tub by now. I am REALLY hoping and (((PRAYING))) Lord willing before fall sets in. I can't wait to see this all spiffed up. I think that is so neat that you will have a working wood burning stove. [o=

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

  4. I can hardly wait for it to happen for you.

  5. I just found your wonderful blog and joined it.

  6. What a gem you have there. I'm sure you are looking forward to having her indoors for a cup of tea. ; )

  7. Hi Trish, looking forward to seeing the finished project. your stove is beautiful, I love the color.
    Thank you for visiting me and for taking the time to leave me such a sweet comment.

  8. Hello dear friend,
    Your stove is lovely, I am sure it will come up beautiful with not too much work.. I love that you have it..I hope it not sitting idle too long.. My lovely vanity is still waiting in the shed for my new bathroom makeover, can't see it happening in the near future, but I feel so blessed with everything else that has happened around here I will be content and not complain U know it will happen one day, and I am blessed with what we have..
    let me know if you would like some extra elbow grease..
    I am sure Your hubby will need a little help to move it.. I have heard rumors of how heavy it is:-)
    Love to you
