I'm dreaming of cozy fireplaces.....

How many of you are lucky enough to have a cozy,
wonderful fireplace in your home????

I wish so bad our little home had a fireplace. :( Oh well, I shall not sulk about it!

Have you all seen the "fake" fireplaces? They make electric ones and some that you use gel fuel for. Hmmmm it perks my interest!! If I can't have a real one (for now anyways) I will settle for one of these uhhhhh fake ones! I have found some pretty cute and cozy ones out in the market that I would gladly welcome into my living room. Not only are they cute...but they actually put off heat too. Bonus points. I was basically just wanting it for the "look" factor! This one is a pretty basic one....used for your entertainment stuff too. That's a nice feature...cause you have to have a place for all those electronics of course.
Mr. Tim requires this.


This one looks a little more traditional....and still has the electronics cubby hole.

This one is more modern looking.

Oh I really really want one of these! haha! They come in a wide range of prices which is good. I found all of these at Lowes.com but I have seen them for sale other places too. I think it would really make my living room perfect! ;) A girl can dream......

What do you all think? Do you have a fireplace that you LOVE?

Maybe I can catch one on sale at the end of this winter season???

Haha I think those are hilarious! Are those the ones that role around?? We have a fireplace, but it's always too warm to use it.

I want one toooo! I think you should do whatever makes you and Tim happy, but I agree, wait for sales :)

We have a gas insert that is really just there for decoration...and my sometimes overly frugal husband refuses to let me run it since without a fan it won't do much heating!

They have those at Costco! I love them, they look so cozy. :)

Yes we have both (and real one and a fake one that's a heater too). The fake ones ARE nice. They provide the same ambiance and heat (if not the same crackle and smell). I got one for my bedroom where I've always wanted a fireplace. I'm sure you'll find a good deal at the end of the season if you just keep an eye out! Oh, and it's so fun to find another Wipeout lover! I'm s o excited for tomorrow night...better not disappoint :-). Wish you could come to our party too...oh well, we'll know you're there in spirit! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
