I want it Wednesday

This week, my goal was to do the "I want it Wednesday" on Wednesday.

Did anyone else notice that last week, I did it on Thursday? Thanks for not mentioning it. You all are very kind.

This week, I'm sharing something I've wanted for a very long time. An Old fashioned stove.

I want the one on the right. It's been on my list for 10 years or more. Ten years ago, it would have cost $5000. Today, it costs $7000. Give or take a couple of hundred.

For 10 years, and three kitchens, I have wanted an old fashioned looking kitchen, and this stove would be the centerpiece. I've bought 2 stoves over the past 10 years, but have yet to get this, my dream stove. I keep hinting to Kev that we need to remodel our kitchen, and when we do, then we can make space for my dream stove. He doesn't say no, but his yeses, oks, and uh-huh's aren't very convincing.

But, I'm very patient, and I can wear him down. It's only been 10 years. I've got lots of time to convince him that I need this stove....stay tuned.

Don't worry. I generally read your entries a day behind anyways.

So tell me, why on earth would you want an "Old" stove that costs $7,000? What's so special about it?

because, well, I should have been more clear! It's a reproduction, so it's a modern stove but looks like an old wood burning stove. Purely asthetics!
