(via simple everyday glamour)
I have done it! I have finally convinced Timothy O that we need a fireplace. I think the deprivation of a heater (on my part, read lower) and the fact that we have a few drafty gaps here and there due to renovating has helped sway him immensely!
The reason why we no longer have a heater is a few years ago I actually purchased one of those faux flame heaters; I was transfixed almost hypnotised by it's dancing flames. I had that baby cranking all day long, wheeling it around from room to room with me, where ever I was, it was (think devoted maltese terrier). It all ended in tears, as these sorts of relationships tend to do when..... the electricity bill came. Long story short I sold it on ebay.
The above images are from my fireplace file, which I think will be rapidly expanding!
