I enjoy a good buzz cooking and fancy myself quite the chef. But, even if I hated to cook, after seeing these antique ranges by Elmira Stove Works, I’d never leave the kitchen. Elmira Stove Works, a family owned business located in Ontario, has been producing cook stoves since the 1970s. Their custom ranges are built using authentic design plans from the 1800s and incorporate all the modern features you would expect today. Each range is handcrafted to accommodate your needs and personal taste. Their full line of kitchen appliances includes refrigerators, dishwasher panels, wall ovens and microwaves in complementary vintage and antique styles. Read More
One of the most recognizable scenes in movie history is from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. In the scene, a gorgeous and sophisticated Audrey Hepburn steps out a cab. Her hair is coiffed and she’s wearing a black evening dress complete with elbow-length gloves. As she nibbles on a croissant and sips her coffee, she looks into the window of Tiffany’s. You may be surprised to know that I have a similar ritual. You won’t be surprised to know the visual is far more pathetic.
I like to get a maple dip donut and a Tim Horton’s double double and stare into the windows of the neighborhood AGA Cooker dealer (FYI: a cooker is what we North Americans refer to as a range – the AGA is decidedly British). As my coffee drips on my shirt-slash-sleepwear, I imagine one day getting an AGA Cooker for my own dream kitchen. Once the sales staff of the store is sufficiently creeped out, I make my way back to the hole I came from.
Not sure what an AGA Cooker is? Well, my friend, consider this the first day of your life.Read More
