For as long as I can remember, this little German smoker house has been in the family.
I don't know how it happened but when I married, I wound up with it. I sat it next to a coffee cup so you can get an idea of the size. Including the steeple, it is 5" high. There is an incense cone sitting on top so now the house smells a little like gingerbread. The roof assembly comes off to store the extra cones which I purchased recently at an import store in Hendersonville, North Carolina (great little town, by the way).
Dad has passed on (the German side of my family) and I tried Googling about it but with no luck. Does anyone have any information on this kind of smoker? All the Google hits I got were for new ones to purchase that were much more ornate.
Thanks in advance!

I have collected many things over the years.
My biggest collection is my white enamel pots. This is just some of them.
And brown bottles . . . . . .
And dogs . . . . .
And kids . . . . .
And old cheese graters (no picture) . . . .
And fabric (won't fit in one picture). . . . .
And quilt patterns (still won't fit in one picture) . . . . . .
And WOOL! Lots of wool . . . . .
What I have always wanted to collect is PEWTER. It was just cost-prohibitive. But two weekends ago, Dear Hubby and I went antiquing and found these two little pieces.
They are a little banged up but the price was right. I am keeping them in a cabinet that Dear Hubby built for me.
I hope to have a collection some day that will mean he will have to build a new shelving unit for me!

With this 90° weather, I thought today would be a good day to get the boys pool ready.
Within seconds - literally seconds - Reagan decided he just couldn't wait!
Pawing at the hose seems to be the thing to do .....
And then Nelson had to kick him out to get a drink .......
Aaaahhh .... the beginning of summertime .....
