I love fires.
But I really love fireplaces.
Especially, old dilapidated ones!
This winter we have definitely put ours to use! I guess that is what happens when a city (especially a "southern" city ) experiences subzero temperatures!
(may God bless Northerners with warm boots and heavy coats!)
Last night as I hovered over the hearthstone, I realized I wanted something more for this open recess in my wall!
I sat back and began to dream............
I dreamt of fresh flowers,
and urns surrounded by pebbles,
and cool owls with fire-engine red berry branches,
