The fireplace grows up a little

Here's what the fireplace looks like a day later.  Our mason had to make an adjustment to some of the coursing so that slowed him down a bit.  Isn't it the cutest little fireplace in the whole wide world? 

He's gone back to his family for a week but will be back the week after next to continue building.


  1. HI There!
    Just found your awesome blog while searching for reviews for the Garnet Hill/ Eileen Fisher recycled leather rug...
    Do you own that rug? Would you mind telling me how it is holding up/do you have pets, etc.?
    I've added you to my reader and look forward to following along with your renovations! That soaker tub has me dreaming or a re-modelled bath! someday soon....

  2. Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for your kind words. I don't own the recycled leather rug but I've been considering it and noticed that it went on sale a week or so ago, which makes it extra tempting. It seems like it would be quite hard wearing and add a nice organic element to a room. Please let me know how it works out if you do go for it.
