What a lovely fire to be able to sit in front of, so peaceful and relaxing.

Sarah said...

Even though its v warm here I am jealous of that fire!

Alwen said...

I can feel the heat from here! Oh, wait, it's just hot. :D

kgirl said...

how lovely!

those tiles are gorgeous. I foresee many Winter nights spent knitting by the fire

Michelle said...

How nice does that look? Wish I had one right now - it's drizzly and I have wet hair from my swim.

oh look at that! I used to have one of those and LOVED it. I have to say I am most jealous.

such an evocative photograph.
i'd be tempted to hang stockings and hope some wool-laden elf was just passing.

MadMad said...

OMG, it's just beautiful. Beautiful. I just ADORE your house.

Caffeine Girl said...

As beautiful as this looks ( and the tile is to die for!), I can't say I'm envious as the high here today is 88 (sorry, like most Americans I cannot do metric).

What a charming picture! Your house is adorable!

Donna Lee said...

it looks quite romantic. There's something about a fire.

Kate said...

I'm dangerous around fires, I like to poke and play with them. But I also like to lay by them with a good book and a cuddly blanket and a sippable cup of tea.

Diana said...

Looks wonderfully cozy! Here we've got our fire outside with over 90 degree days.

Kate said...

WHAT a gorgeous fireplace!! Makes our plywood-surrounded gas heater look very very ugly indeed.
How nice to have such a lovely period piece in your house.

it is lovely, but now i have that song in my head....and we all know what the next line is right?

I'm overcome by jealousy! Jim won't let me put a wood-burning stove in the house, so we have to make do with little electric heaters when it cools down, and they don't provide nearly the same ambiance.

I love the fire and the tiles are gorgeous. Very jealous I am
