Etsybloggers Carnival - Jan 29, 2010

Thanks to Aliciamae for this week's Etsybloggers team carnival.
Choose one of the following topics:
1) Snowflakes - your favorite way to make them or your favorite item on Etsy featuring them
2) Favorite winter time activity/how to keep kids occupied during snow days (indoors or outdoors)


I think my favorite wintertime activity is sitting before the fire in the evening. But since we don't have a fireplace anymore, that's wishful thinking. Do I dare look for beautiful photographs, with people sitting in front of a fire, and feel reminiscent? No, I’d rather go to Etsy and see what kinds of fireplaces people are creating!

Here's some lucky doll that has a fireplace.
This listing is for the match box holder on the wall,
by Miniature Cabin Decor

Kinda reminds me... of me! Minus the blond hair...
From bestemencreations,
a handpainted glass block, that lights up

Now she's found a book and a kitty! The perfect scenario!
This listing includes six bookplates, by thelittlechickadee
For those of you with fireplaces,
a fire screen is a nice decoration to own.
woodenwhimsie is a cat lover, but he also likes cows -
check them out!

♫And this little piggy laid in front of the fire♫
lulunjoy has lots of fun art tiles for animal lovers,
including scenes from around the house.

Can't forget the birds!
This owl looks very dignified with his pipe, warming himself by the fire.
The print is from an original acrylic painting by Cool Ranch Studio
Hope you enjoyed my search for fireplaces.

I love fireplaces. We have a gas one we never use. Just the thought of the bill going up each time we flip the switch is enough to prevent us from using it!

loved your blog! growing up we had a fireplace in the living room - the nicest thing about it was just not the warmth of the fire - but the warmth of the family all sitting around the fireplace together. Great memories!

I love sitting by the fire too! We have two fireplaces but don't use either one very much since I'm such a worry wart about the cats getting too close to the glass doors. I like the fireplaces you chose and the kitties are really cute!
