A pot belly in waiting.....

We're making progress with our lovely pot bellied stove, it's in situ, mounted on some lovely tiles donated by our daughter Nikki, expertly laid by my DH.


We're hoping for a fine day tomorrow to fit the flue and put the flashing around the hole in the roof, then we'll be ready for the snow everyone keeps forecasting for next week. I should be more careful with my blog post titles....

As Nikki and her family are moving from a victorian house to a more modern one with no coal fires she has given us the lovely copper trivet and brass jug (in the pic above) for making our mulled wine.....yummy!


We have also become custodians of her beautiful oil lamp and couldn't resist a try out on tuesday after we had lunch in the summerhouse, enjoying the rare appearance of the sunshine.


This lovely plaque made by one of my grandsons for my birthday last year has been hung at last, isn't it beautiful.


And lastly this lovely hanging ornament is one of 3 that our son Dan and family gave us for Christmas, it was perfect for my special trowel.

Delicious stove!! You won't want to be leaving that little nest once you get it fired up. Such a gorgeous little place you're building.

You are in grave danger of moving in completely to your summerhouse! I can foresee a time when you won't want to lock the door and go home! It is looking so lovely in there. Maybe an extension for a shower and toilet?!!
