Many of you know that we have been trying to save up for a fireplace. There's a chimney, but no fireplace. We plan on putting in the living room, right where the tapestry is.
The fireplace seems to be getting further and further away with car repairs and new computers taking precedent. I know a fireplace is not a necessity. I think I'm more frustrated about not being able to save the money than the lack of the fireplace (it's the reverse for Andrew, I'm sure). Thank goodness for my mom who reminded me that years ago, just when she thought she had enough money to buy drapes for the living room (2 very large windows) something would come up. So for now, I will enjoy the room the way it is and look forward to the day when we will warm ourselves in front of the fireplace.
