It looks simply perfect, you were so right to alter it and the stove is beautiful, you'll be looking at pictures in the fire.

Brilliant! I trust your toes are delighting in the heat. Your mantel looks so homely. I've a very similar old clock which I think my grandfather was given when he retired. What are you burning?

demie said...

oh! lovely. just lovely, when dreams come true... : )

Lucille said...

Feeling the warmth from here.

Doohie said...

Cosy!

Isabelle said...

Well done. Can I pass you some of my dreams to deal with, please?

annie hoff said...

It looks wonderful - as if it's always been so, which undermines your hard work a bit, but isn't meant to!

Danielle P. said...

Perfect!

flwrjane said...

Bliss indeed.

Very stylish! (The fire, not the socks!!)

Anna at the Doll House said...

You can look forward to a cosy winter.

Sue said...

I'm so jealous. Recent wall and loft insulation has rendered our modern house so flaming warm there's no chance of us having a lovely woodburning stove. We'd roast.

Anne said...

Those toes look perfectly happy, as they should be because the fire is gorgeous!

Dan said...

You were right about the fireplace! It looks amazing... and very snuggly! I can imagine the gang in front of it - you probably won't get a look in ;o)!

Oh. And now you have passed the dream to me and I didn't even realise that I wanted a wood burning stove until I saw that photo.

Belinda @ Wild Acre said...

They are the best!! Really makes winter for me.

Enjoy yours, as I'm sure your canine clan will! xx

Gwen Buchanan said...

Your vision complete.. exactly the right place for your toes!!!

I could happily nod off in front of that fire right now . Blissful !

Lynda (Granny K) said...

Just wonderful! Enjoy!

June said...

It looks sleek and stylish and cozy all at once!
I love staring at a fire on winter evenings.

Aaaah, lovely! That reminds me - must get the chimney swept!!

Val said...

Lovely :0)

Enjoy the stove - I'm sure it won't be long before the menagerie are curled up in front of it enjoying the warmth. Our spaniel used to end up sleeping with her head on the hearth when we had an open fire!

ps - blogger comments suddenly started working again last night!!

jabblog said...

Delightful!

jabblog said...

It all looks quite delicious.
It's raining chestnuts and acorns here. The puppy treads very carefully through the spiky husks.

Preseli Mags said...

Aw bliss! Look at those happy little toesies! Is that the last time we'll see it without a pile of happy dogs and cats in front of it?

Planet Penny said...

That looks SO cosy, and I love the toes toasting in the foreground! Bliss!

mountainear said...

Fabulous. What a transformation.

Rose H (UK) said...

It looks fabulous! Making me feel toasty warm too :o)

Mary Ann said...

It looks lovely. I think the makeover is really great and I so wish I was you:)

California Bea said...

Fantastic! I love your stove and the way you've used it in your fireplace. I can imagine using it this winter, and all the furry ones enjoying the heat. Great job.

Marcheline said...

And now - a rocking chair, a warm chenille throw, and a single malt scotch! Gorgeous!

Rattling On said...

Looks perfect there, and the render was a good call. Can't use our stove since setting the chimney on fire...

Lesley said...

Fabulous. Bet you're looking forward to Christmas x

Kitty said...

Perfect - just right for toasting toes and roasting chestnuts! x

rogern said...

Alicia said...
