my french kitchen stove

A few weeks ago while I was at Les Puces, I spotted an antique toy kitchen set. It was très, très mignon, but I just wasn't moved enough to buy it.

This past weekend I was back at Les Puces, and as I was walking around thinking to myself, "Maybe I should have gotten that kitchen set....", I came across this one, much smaller and much more affordable.

The oven door opens. There's also a drawer that pulls open. The chalet we rented last winter in the Alps had a beautifully aged stove, with a drawer that opened just like this. This is perhaps where the coals went?

I've been secretly wishing for an antique French kitchen stove, although it was the kind of wish that I figured wouldn't come true. Well, guess what? It did come true -- in the form of a pencil sharpener.

And I paid only 2€ for it.

That is so cute. I hope someday you find a real one you can cook in.

■Hello Barbara,
Wouldn't that be lovely? Real vintage stoves are oh so cute, but unfortunately not very practical.
