The Fireplace and a Mantletop

Hi All,
The mornings and evenings are now getting quite chilly in Illinois. Brrrrrrrrrr I love it that I can now use my fireplace in the old Cape house. There is nothing like sitting by a fire in your favorite chair :)
Happy Halloween to all!

I am linking up with the following:

  1. Oh how I miss a fireplace! Dad built one at our house with a huge hearth great for sitting on! Someday maybe I will have on again. So enjoy

  2. What a cozy fireplace. I love sitting beside ours too. We are still having warm weather in Georgia, so no fire yet.

    Enjoy!

  14. If I could give your house a cute award I would.

    Round door? Shutters? Window boxes? Picket fence?

    AHHHHH I'm trying to contain my insane jealousy. :)

    Thanks for stopping by earlier. And I'm saving a pic of your house for inspiration!

  16. Hi Robin...

    Well my friend, I adore your Cape house and your endearing fireplace!!! Ohhh yes...there is nothing like curling up in front of a warm fire on a cold day...with a good book! Our mornings and evenings are becoming quite chilly here in Colorado as well! But I'm enjoying the cooler weather!

    Warmest autumn wishes,

  17. I've already commented once. But I come back and you've changed your banner. I got quite a sweet jolt when I saw it, because I just LOVE it! Full of color and I can visualize you right in there. Great job!

  21. I love fireplaces, but my Yankee hubby prefers woodstoves. He won out in our current little cottage farmhouse. The next go around, I want a fireplace!
