my strangest purchase?

I'm not totally sure about this, but I think I may have made my strangest purchase yet. I bought a fireplace from It will be delivered in 5-7 days. Last year I bought a little electric "wood burning stove" for my apartment, which I also thought was funny. Actually, the fact that I already own one fake fireplace probably makes this purchase even weirder. But this one burns gel and it's non-toxic and it makes real flames and that nice crackling sound. And it didn't involved building a chimney or venting to the outside, and I'm 99% sure I won't die of carbon monoxide poisoning or have birds get stuck in the flue, so I think it was a good buy.

Since I missed cute stuff Wednesday yesterday, I'm declaring this cute stuff Thursday. The only downside to my gel fuel burning fireplace is that you don't get to enjoy the smell of wood burning. Maybe this candle would do the trick?

  1. I didn't know you had a blog. This is very exciting.

  2. That is way better than the fireplace dvd that we use. Maybe we should invest in a fake fireplace.

  3. I have one of those DVDs too. I seem to be obsessed with fake fires...

  4. Has the fireplace arrived yet? Josh is skeptical about the not needing-to-vent thing. Does it really work?
