Something Different!

For some years now we have been unhappy with electric heating. In the past (about 7 years ago since we changed) we always had wood heating and now, after some consideration we have installed a new, improved version of wood heater.. How marvelous.. I had almost forgotten how warm you could be with it. Sooo.. We made a wood carrier from canvas. I know there have been versions of these for sale in the past and they  are probably still available  but the quality wasn't good and they wore out quickly. I am hoping our version will last a lot longer. I have now made a couple extra for friends who I know would appreciate them. Saves us ladies carrying one or two pieces at a time... This is the new wood heater. Warm as toast.


This is the wood carrier...

The heater looks great, those toes are going to be toasty warm... Well done on your new purchase :))
You are very clever making a carry for the wood :))
I am so far behind in reading my blogging friends posts, My comp went down again yesterday, It is so frustrating :))
Thankfully I have managed to read yours ..:))
Have a great weekend and lets hope not a wet one :))

I really, really miss my slow combustion heater. Reverse cycle air-con is just not the same.

So I have to go away to places that have one, to cure the longing :-)

Great carrier btw - I always carried it in my arms and ended up with splinters of wood in my clothing :-)

Hi Pat & Maria.. Thanks for stopping by.. I hope you get your comp. up and running soon Pat, bit of a nuisance not having it when you need it. And I can really understand how you feel Maria, from being without wood heating for so long.. Glad you like the carrier girls..
