HANG IN THERE BABY

 

SO. Mum and Dad are in Hawaii. And I’m cat sitting. We have a standard, functioning fireplace, or at least we would if Dad hadn’t, for some sort of SICK JOKE, locked all the firewood up in the shed before he left. So now I’m freezing, but thinking warm thoughts with my latest post.

SUSPENDED FIREPLACES (ooooo!)

Looking at these photos makes me want to run up and swipe my arm underneath them. I can’t get over how amazing these are. A fireplace should be a focal point of every living area, and wouldn’t it be terrific if everyone’s focal point were as gorgeous as these. They’re like a mid-century inspired orb sculpture that actually gives off heat. Here’s some ones I really like:

This one’s not an orb but I don’t discriminate.
