For the love of fireplaces

While there is still a little chill in the air, I plan on maximizing our fireplace like we have been doing 4-5 nights a week this winter. I have actually learned from Tony how to keep a fire going: you must let it breath, add little sticks to start it (not the big logs) and keep poking those logs around. I also cheat and use starter fluid but it gets the job done. Nothing beats a wood burning fire!

This fireplace is wonderfully rustic and romantic

Once winter is over I will be placing candles back in our fireplace

Or you can disguise the inside with a chic mirror screen
