52 Week Photo Challenge - Heat

Hello fans and visitors,

I seem to have missed a week in the photo challenge...  Life is moving at a very fast pace right now!

Well, the word for this week is "heat" and I have an easy subject for my photo.


Next to the sun, this is my favourite heat source.  Of course we aren't using it these days because the insurance company won't let us - too old and not certified to today's standards, they say.  It is a darn good stove though and kept us warm for more than twenty years.  I can't remember how the circles on the side came about.  I think one of the kids pressed a frisbee or something similarly circular against it when it was hot.  Now it hold my aloe plant (sad looking little dumpling), the egg shells that I grind prior to throwing them in the compost, and the dog's toys.  Oh, and the copper kettle that was a gift from my aunt and uncle, both deceased.  
I think I need to do some dusting.... 

Please check out the other photos of "heat" on Shaz' blog.

  2. That would have been a mighty fire for all those years. Sad to know it cannot be used now.

  4. What a wonderful memento, memory and catch-all stand. Just the kind of piece of furniture I like to have in my house.
