I must admit, I do love white and my Petite Cottage is full of white things that I cherish. Today, however, I will be focusing only on one. My most cherished item. My white, newly refurbished 1950's O'Keefe & Merritt stove.
This beautiful piece of art was given to me by my wonderful Aunt Maria. She had this stove ever since I could remember. I recall as a girl telling her that I loved her stove and that I would love to have it if she ever decided to let go of it.
She loves to cook and feed her family, and as her family grew larger and larger (she is the proud mom of 8 kids, grandma of... I lost count on how many grand kids, I think it's about 25+ and great grandma of about a dozen and great-great grandmom of 1 or two. It so hard to keep track.) she found her stove to be too small. When she bought a new and bigger stove she remember what I had said and ask if I was still interested.
Wow! She remembered. Of course, after I stopped jumping up and down with joy, I said YES! Sadly it sat in my garage for about a year and a half (below) before it claimed its rightful place in our kitchen. The kitchen was too small to hold this size stove. But when we finally decided it was time to remodel...you guessed it, I designed the whole kitchen around my beautiful stove.I love, love, love my White O'Keefe & Merritt stove.
