Christmas Tree I Finally have a real Fireplace - so cosy!

I just wanted to share my joy after so many years of wanting a real fire I finally finished last weekend. It was the missing piece of my Christmas experience.

I did all the work including making the surround and brickwork. I'm so pleased its just wonderful having a real fire for Christmas, I love the smell of burning wood.

Its giving me all my childhood memories of my family home.

Looks cozy! It's chilly, gray, and wet where I am today. I'd rather be curled up in front of your fireplace with a hot cocoa and Christmas cookies!

I was just saying something just like that last night... After growing up with a wood burning fireplace in my grandparents house, I was hooked. So, when we purchased home, I made sure I got a full size brick fireplace installed. There is nothing like sitting on the couch, snuggled up with a hot cup of tea with a roaring fire in the fireplace.....
