The old wood cookstove has aged well; she's a beauty all right. White enamel warming oven and cast iron plates for the stove top are almost all complete.
It's a lot of fun to make up vignettes that all go together; old enamel ware pots and pans, some of them planted with gorgeous succulents, brightly colored kettles and coffee pots bring back memories and nostalgia for those of us that have never lived the rustic lifestyle.
Sempervivum and Sedum are the perfect plants to display in saucepans with bullet holes, one without a handle, and blue granite ware kettles without a lid.
The big cream colored pot was originally used to cook pig slops on the stove; back in the day, whatever left overs the family didn't eat would all go into the pig bucket, and be turned into a nutritious and delicious (at least, the pigs thought so) meal.

I'm not the only one who gives a woodstove or two a good home;
