Light My Fire

It snowed all day in New York Saturday and I wished the entire time that my apartment had a working fireplace.  Would have been very cozy and romantic to spend the day reading in front of a roaring fire.  Since I don’t have one, these photos will have to suffice.  Hope you stayed dry and warm where ever you were today!

    I had no time for a fire today, desperately trying to save my trees from the wreckage caused by the snow. All day, listening to limbs and trees cracking and falling…lost my beautiful old apple tree, my birch and dogwood trees…my courtyard is a see of fallen limbs.
    No fireplace…come and visit me at Interieurs, we have wonderful mini ethanol fireplaces…they will keep you warm…

    What a fabulous post for today! Are you ready for the snow? I’m not!

    Wow you are really lucky to have it snow at your place, at least I think so. I’ve never seen it snow before, but I have seen snow, otherwise I wouldn’t love going skiing every year. Anyways, they are all very beautiful pictures. Have you considered a double fire-place?

    Nothing like a real fire!!I send you this as a virtual comfort, my own fireplace and lovely seed cake recipe 🙂

    A real fire does indeed look pretty. BUT!! – having had to use one recently, and being predominantly reliant on it for heat, it is a terrifically time-consuming and hand-dirtying process! This is exacerbated when the logs etc are located down winding and cold passages. Happily we are now in a house where CH does the main task. The pictures you show are indeed beautiful examples. I suppose the ideal is gas-fired, that looks like a real fire. Anyway, hope you’re keeping warm.

    I was just stuck looking at the 3rd picture, the swedish fireplace, how the heck does that work? I don’t see a flue or any sort of exhaust. I might have to go to Sweden and see how this might be possible.

    These are all so beautiful, but you had me at the first one. We just purchased a home built in 1900 in CT and it appears the fireplace has been “updated” and the first thing I want to do is take it back to what would have been original…this post couldn’t have come at a better time! We are still in sunny CA, so I’m a bit envious of your snow…or maybe you are calling it SNOWTOBER?

    I feel warm and cozy just looking at images. No snow here but rainy and cold. Keep warm…hot chocolate, hot date, hot bath!

    I love fireplaces! And we just got snow here today, so I’m definitely feeling the need for one…love the first one the most!!
