Are you sitting down?

Words cannot express how excited I am to have this new/vintage stove! It belonged to my friend Tina who inherited it when she bought her funky Leucadia beach house 13 years ago. She baked many wonderful dishes in this old Betty and now.... it'll be mine next week.

Since my oven has been broken for almost 5 years now, this couldn't have happened at a better time.

Tina, I promise to take good care of her and give her center stage in my own kitchen. Actually, the rest of my kitchen will be designed around her. And when the time comes to refurbish this vintage beauty, I think I will have her painted apple green.


  1. Karen, you are SO funny! I am so happy for you!!! Yipee indeed!!


  2. Cute post, I liked that you used the card I made you! I'm so happy you love the stove so much already and that you will enjoy refurbishing it and making it the centerpiece of your kitchen. Best of all, I can still visit her and come over for baking parties while we wear vintage aprons!

  3. very nice! it looks about the size of my whole kitchen :)
