There is something cozy and comfortable about old stoves. My mom shares stories of huddling by her grandmother's during the cold winter months when she was a kid, and whenever I come across one, I wonder about its past life and the great family meals that were cooked on it.

I'm particularly fond of shiny, white ones, but I have yet to find a vintage stove I haven't liked.

Do you have a soft spot for old stoves, too?
