Une cheminée qui fait envie.
Chris: Very much so Martine..
Strange firewood...
Chris: An historic house in which real firewood is presumably construed as too dangerous
wow, I like the look of this place
Chris: A really historic house Rob

You have a fine fireplace; Santa will have no trouble dropping down your chimney. I hope you've been a good boy?
Chris: Oh I've been a very good boy Uncle Alan. Now about that train-set you said you'd buy me..

We know the same phrase to describe a homely, cosy atmosphere - a beautiful manor house - but no mantelpiece to put off all the Christmas cards!
Chris: A feature of the architecture of the time clearly precludes mantelpieces Philine. I took this in Worcester on a recent jaunt with Lady K
I thought this looked familiar. A bit of a gem isn't it?
Chris: Absolutely gorgeous. I guess Worcester was full of places like this once upon a time..

Must be an old house!
Chris: Elizabethan possibly Anne
There's a lot to look at in tis picture, it is a very interesting fireplace, something I always take pictures of in such places.
Chris: Yes - fireplaces can be interesting
A picture radiating warmth, Chris. Looks like someone or something has been gnawing on the bottom of the fireplace surround though.
Chris: Just decorative paint peeling off stonework Bev
if you don't burn anything in the hearth Chris... at least they put it to some use....petersmile
Chris: Yes they did Peter
