Antique Stove Perfection

This is the exquisite stove I have been in love with for six years.  It is held together with a piece of cord (door doesn't shut), has no working pilot (burnt fingers), and can't regulate heat (burnt cookies.) 
One of the coolest things about this stove is the ability to use propane (right side) and wood (left side.) 
This lovely appliance has taken care of my family (since 2005) in our off-the-grid cabin in the national forest.  
After this summer, I will no longer have the pleasure of closing my stove with a piece of cord and a fastex clip.  I will be leaving Walnut Creek (as a home) and will only be coming out twice a week to visit my horses .  
I dedicate this summer to photographing and writing about all the simple and precious things that have blessed my life since the day I first met this land.
I used a scratched metal texture on this photo for emphasis. Editing was done in Photoshop, Aperture and Nik Color Efex Pro.
