Those Pics I Promised and The Rural Society Antique Show

In my glee over "The Find" a few weekends back I may or may not (oh, all right - I DID) promise to show photos of the thing I had to have.  The thing that made me slam on my brakes and turn around in a driveway (not belonging to myself) to get back and see if it really and truly could be...
The stove of my dreams.  The one that has been on my list forever.  The one I see in antique stores and sigh over.  THE ONE...
Thank you junque gods.  Surely you planned for the map function on my phone to send me a ridiculously long way out of my way to get to a craft show.  Often it is these "wrong" turns which provide the chance for great treasure and I should remember to trust in the junque journey.
Heading out tomorrow morning to the Rural Society Antique Show with a trunk full of fabulous finds and junque of all sorts.
Naturally this stove will not be in the lot because even as I told myself it was ok to purchase seeing as how I had a show coming up and could sell it...I KNEW I WAS LYING.  This lovely stove is right at home in my kitchen and will stay for quite a while.

Oh, you "liar," you! (Enjoy your "new" stove for many years to come!)


Don’t let that scarlet go to your head!
Be very glad you haven’t been bled!
Give thanks for the colors dear to your heart:
Carmine and cherry and wine— a good start!
