The surprise...

 Here it is my lovelies. 
My early birthday present from my Mama, sisters and myself. Isn't she a beauty? I was so lucky to find her!
She is a cast iron "EAGLE" salesman sample of a wood cookstove from the early 1900's (I think). She also came with so many cast iron pots, pans, skillets and even a couple cauldrons!
What a joy she is! I cannot wait to fill up my new kitchen with every thing a kitchen needs! (And it is a VERY long list of things I don't have yet... But, so much the better!)
 
I meant to show you much sooner (honest, I did.) But I got sick and was in bed for two days unable to do anything productive.
But I'm feeling so much better today and I would like to invite you to see my new house
 The same location, but now I have 2 floors and 2 rooms!
Here is the kitchen. As you can see I am still unpacking, putting candles in all the holders and washing the dust off the silver.
 Here is another treasure I found. It is a handmade, antique rocking chair. A tiny bit lopsided and obviously been "fixed" in places, but lovable all the same.
 And my bedroom, also still in the unpacking stage.
 I hope to have it all finished and decorated for Christmas very soon!
In the meantime.... Do sign up for the giveaway at Rookery Ramblings.
They're giving away a delightful Turkey Red table cloth from the 1800's.

Please tell me what you've been doing this Christmas season! I'm simply aching to know! Whatever you are doing, I hope you are having a very Merry Christmas!
Love always,
Emaline
