Remembering those who fought for and paid the ultimate price for our freedoms and honoring those who have served or continue to serve so we may enjoy the privileges provided American Citizens.

Well, how do you like this beauty?  It's almost identical to my own, which we took in to a friend's shop today for her to sell.  I've had mine for over 20 years and bought it from the elderly lady who originally owned it.  The first day I saw the stove, I fell in love...After all, it's BLUE!  I love anything blue, but this is an exceptionally pretty blue...A Karr cook range from early 1900's.
We've hauled our "Blue Beauty" around to each house we've lived in for the past 20 years..I used it as a display piece in my shop for several years, but just couldn't part with it...Until today.  We no longer have our shop (closed two years ago) and we don't have room for the stove in our cabin, so I thought long and hard about it and finally decided that someone else needs to own it, enjoy it, possibly cook on it (it is in excellent cooking condition)...They need to love that blue as much as I have.
I just wanted to offer a sort of official 'farewell' to my "Blue Beauty"...May she continue to cook many yummy biscuits!  Blessings from the NC mountains!
