The next best thing to a fireplace


This wood stove is the latest addition to our living room! A while back, I had posted a picture of the old wood stove that Jim was fixing up. As you can see, this is not the same one. :) We are still waiting on parts to come in, to be able to finish fixing that one. But this week, Jim found some brand new ones on Ebay that were being sold for about 1/2 the original retail price. They had a lot of features that were better than the other stove, such as the glass door, ash pan, etc. So, next thing I knew, we were taking a drive down to Springfield, MA, to pick up this beauty. Jim installed it yesterday, and we love it!! It adds so much coziness to our living room, and so much warmth to the whole house!

That's gorgeous! And praise the Lord that you didn't have to go through the work of fixing up the old one. I bet you thought you wouldn't get to use a wood burning stove yet this winter, eh?

Alicia,

You're right--we were starting to wonder if we'd get to use a wood stove this year! Thankfully it all worked out beautifully. We are SO enjoying it!
