Thank You Vintage Christine!

What a wonderful surprise to come home Friday afternoon and find a package in my mailbox!  Inside the package, which was decorated with Easter egg stickers, I found two wonderful treasures!

First, there was a nice note from Vintage Christine on the back of this Anne Taintor post card.  The post card itself is wonderful, and features a picture of a beautiful vintage Tappan Deluxe stove, just like mine!  I wish that kitchen were in my house!

Also included in my surprise package was this amazing vintage Hotpoint cookbook.  I've been thumbing through it, and I'm getting lots of ideas for things to try out on my new Tappan, once I get it working and installed.

Speaking of the Tappan, I think I have finally settled on a name for her.  Ethel.  After the classic Ethel Mertz played by Vivian Vance on I Love Lucy.


  1. Michael, I love it that you plan to name your stove. A lot of people name their cars, but, I never heard of anyone naming their kitchen range! It's such an elegant stove that maybe you should name it the more fancy Vivian instead of Ethel. Either way, you two are going to have a wonderful relationship.
