I mean SERIOUSLY.... Texas is paying for its freakishly warm Novermber/Dec.
Midcentury Madam has a post out right now called "Light My Fire" about free standing and modern yet retro looking fireplaces, Please dont be mad dear readers, but iv been holding out on you...
About a month ago my friend Ellen gave me her old fire place when she re-did the den in her house. I think its a 1959, but it could be early 60's. Before you leave comments of outrage, I'v been meaning to get this posted but something always comes up! She gave me the fireplace as shown and the smoke stack because she "wanted it to go to a good home, and knew it would be loved at the Casablanca!" Its pristine she has taken excllent care of it over the years. Its SUPER atomic for my taste, (Almost like something the Jetsons would ahve had) however im CrAzY about it! Like I explained to Jamie it would look FANTASTIC in the turquoise room, unfortunatly to do this id have to get rid of the 1953 RCA Tv set....(and lets face it i'd rather freeze to death watching I Love Lucy, than be warm staring a a blank wall) So right now this beauty sits in storage waiting for me to find a place for it!
