My Kitchen Stove From The 50's

 Stove From The 50's

Hi all my crafty friends.  Just thought I would take a minute and share a project with you that was sooo much fun.  I had an idea that I wanted to make a 50's era looking stove and came up with this pattern.  As you can see from the top photo I made each piece as I went along.   The pattern is from a memory I had of my grandmother's stove and let me tell you, some mighty good cooking came from that stove.  
The actual stove I made is about 8" x 10".  A nice size for display purposes.  The stove contains a clock, dials, handles, metal grid, hot plates, drawers, and an oven with window.  The pots, canisters and hanging towels are from stickers - Cookbookin'.  It helps to add a certain amount of authenticity to the project.
I hope you enjoy looking at the stove and if you would like a pattern, just let me know and I will share with you.
Thanks for looking and happy scrappin'.
