bring on the winter

After we had made do with a bunch of non heat-emitting lilies (non-heat emitting lilies? heat non-emitting lilies? where's Stan when you need him?) for a long time, the ivory stove appeared.

  1. I don't drink brandy, hot or cold, but I would drink one with you all to celebrate that adorable stove! I love the "reveal". ;)

  2. Oh my gosh your schoolgirl is the cutest ever. The red tie. The ivory stove is great too but I confess you had me at the girlikins.

  6. That was worth waiting for...now you can skip about collecting kindling unless of course you want to buy your firewood from Prada? I heard they bundle it with ribbons and deliver it by manservant...

  7. I know I will be the only philistine wondering this: how will you keep it clean?

    Not my pig, not my farm, right?

    Looking forward to a trip sometime to the "motherland" and dropping by to visit.

  8. Oh I love your new stove it is so perfect for your space and I can't get over the color- may be in North America they just don't make them in that color?!
    Your little girl is lovely, so cute! I love her little school uniform-my boys also wear uniforms and I'm okay with having boys but there's something about a little girl that's extra cute, especially in a kilt and tie.
    I went to an all girls school where we wore a kilt and tie and blazer-
    I would love a brandy! Can you have those in the morning?

  9. I think that a 'Stove Party' is in order, Mise.... and I also think that your daughter (who is as pretty as a picture) has a career as a magician's assistant in the future !!
    Your new stove is lovely and will probably be your best friend this winter. XXXX

  10. Oh do, Jane! I have an imaginary assistant (Beatrice), you see. She keeps everything sparkling.

    Counting Dandelions, thanks for the wonderful Eloise picture! We could all do with that "it's me!" spirit.

    Louise, that's a whole new mental image of me for myself - skipping about for kindling. My heart is lightened, my wardrobe mentally ready. Thank you!

    Ren, yes, in the morning is fine, ahem medicinally.

  11. Compound hyphenation is your friend: 'non-heat-emitting lilies'.

    Welcome to the new stove, and here's to toasty toes!

  12. Hey, you moved! You're usually on the right hand side! I got all disorientated and discombobulated for a moment there! But then the gorgeous stove settled my mind once more :-)

  24. Any chance you can pledge that your adorable daughter will marry my charming son and we will travel the world over visiting each other drinking brandy? :)

  33. Guess you are ready for the cold days, and it looks like the student is enjoying the stove.

    She looks adorable in her uniform.
    Looks too inviting; I will bring my own mug, but I put dibs on the footstool.

  35. *SWOOOOON*

    So jealous. And my next-door-neighbour-best-friend has just put in a Majolica Green stove.
    (About the same shade I am now.)

    Currently NOT loving my bog-standard black item...

    Ps. I adore Pearl too. Sunday mornings without her are simply not worth getting up for.

    ReplyDelete
  36. OH, your girl is just to adorable. I guess I was wrong in thinking it got pretty cold over in your neck of the woods - or that is one mother powerful kicker of a stove! CUTE chairs by the way Mise

    ReplyDelete
  37. She is darling, Mise! It is so hot here, so, so hot. 90 degrees in Savannah. In October. I want sweaters, dammit! XX!

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's the loveliest heating stove I've ever seen, and a brandy would be perfect.

    ReplyDelete

    I would gladly cozy up with tea and cakes and two jumping little girls.
