Burning Desire

Spring has disappeared AGAIN here in the Highlands! It's cold, raining and very windy - just looking at all these gorgeous fireplaces makes me feel warmer.

  1. Goodmorning Leigh,

    Yes it is freezing here in Bowral this morning and I have the heaters on. Oh how nice it would be to snuggle up with a pillow and blanket in front of one of these gorgeous fires and go back to sleep.

    Have a great week,

  2. Same here Leigh. After 4 days of glorious weather & no fire, MOTH had to chop more wood & set the fires again here yesterday as it was SOOOOO cold!

  3. the loggia...but the first one just makes me feel warm looking at it. Trish

  4. Well, it's fall here in Maine, but today felt more like spring. Yesterday, however, we had pouring rain and howling winds; one of these lovely fireplaces would have suited just fine. I especially like the next-to-last photo! I want to curl up there with a good book and a cup of tea.

    Thanks for your lovely comment and birthday wishes, Leigh!

  5. Beautiful images - the first photo makes me want to grab a great book, put on some sweats and cuddle up for the day!


  6. Oh that first fireplace is magnificent. Those dogs look real in the last, yikes.

  7. Love the bigger ones. Can't wait to have my own burning - still too hot!
    Have a great week,

  8. I adore the idea of having a outside fire day

  9. Hi Leigh, it's images like these that actually make me miss the cooler weather back home in NZ! We are finally having some rain here on the Gold Coast but it's still warm...8.30pm and we have the sliding doors wide open and the fans on, crazy!
    Thanks for the advice re my console. Would love to see your painted tables that you mentioned.

  10. Hi Leigh
    Looks like it is Aussie wide. Sydney is once again cold and rainy. More of the 16c days following on the heels of 30c days.

    I'd love any one of these fireplaces.

    Enjoy your week... maybe the sun will return. x Julie

  11. Spring has disappeared here in Patagonia too. I'd love to be curled up near that fire in that gorgeous green room! hope you have a lovely week, Leigh! xo

  12. ooooh how I wish I had a wood burning fireplace! Lovely pics :0)

  13. It's getting pretty cold here in England. We have a fireplace in nearly every room and I think that I should light at least one. I love all of the fireplaces you have shown, my favourites being 3 & 4. XXXX

  14. Love these, especially the first image.
    Really cosy.

  15. Dear Leigh,
    here in Germany winter it's also on the way...
    Now we can enjoy the time in front of the fireplace.... soooo gorgeous images
    Have a great and cosy week
