An Old Fashioned Stove

Once upon a time peasant houses were outfitted with such stoves. Occasionally they were built in a corner so part(s) of it would be in other rooms also giving them heat. There is a 'bench' that one can sit on and keep their back warm. Just imagine sitting around winter evenings when there was no TV, video - but lots of time for conversation. It must have been very pleasant especially after a long day working outdoors.

Oh, my goodness. Isadora, I am so happy I found your comment on Audrey's blog (Marvellous) and you mentioned being in Hungary, so I came over to visit.

I was born in Bacska, and we had a stove like this. Well, ours was in the corner, and as a child, I loved to sit on the bench and read my favorite book. Such a long time ago. Of course, I you know Bacska is now a part of Serbia, but it was still Hungary when I lived there.

We fled Hungary in the fall of 1947, and came to the USA in September of 1951 when I was 14. My grandparents, who raised me, are long gone, of course, and no one Hungarian in the rural Ozarks where I now live, so my Hungarian is pretty rusty these days, but my favorite cousin lives in Budapest (Baki Agi) and I keep in touch with her. Oh, I do wish she had a computer, so we could communicate more often, but she doesn't.

Anyway, there is so much more, and your photos are all beautiful. I will visit again. I am glad to have found you. My name is not Hungarian now, but maiden name used to be Szilak.

Wonderful blog, Isadora. I hope your Sunday is going well.

I really like your description of how a stove like this might be enjoyed. It made me smile to imagine myself in such a position: Tired after a long day of working, sitting with my back to a roaring, warming fire, chatting and laughing with family and friends. Perhaps with a cup of tea and my favourite cookie in hand?
