Laura's Pink Stove

I am wanting to do a blog post but my iphoto is in disarray.  I am running a program to remove duplicates (why isn't this a feature of iphoto?) and it takes 23 hours to cycle through all our photos.  Which wouldn't be so bad-except the fact when it was almost complete yesterday I was vacuuming and bumped the power cord and had to begin again.  "Arrgh!" I say.   Anyway I hope to get a post done this week, until then I leave you with a sneak peek at things to come....

This is Laura Ingalls Wilder's kitchen in Mansfield, MO.  I was in love with this stove.  It is pink!  We weren't allowed to take pictures inside the home and the postcards available made the stove look greenish white.  So when I found this one representing its' true color on the web I had to nab it.  Her home is my dream home.  It was left as it was upon her death n 1957.  She died in February and in May of the same year the home was available to tour.  Until I get my own post up about visiting Mansfield you can view Solanah's.


  1. Yay! I've been missing you.

    LOVELY stove!! Anything's better in pink.

  2. My first apartment the bathroom (sink, toilet, and tub/shower) was pink. Not my favorite color, but I lived with it !
