Chrisisthereason,  Can you open another thread, with a link to the picture?  (You'll have to have 10 posts (? or 15?) before you can post a picture here.  One of the Mods will be able to reveal the image for you, so no one has to click off site to see the picture.

CatFish!  Cute brooch, Harlan! 
I rarely see brooches anymore... I have a few that are permanently attached to certain coats, that I no longer wear, though intend on wearing in the future... But none of my normal clothes are formal enough for a brooch...

Thanks Taramor!

Onyx, I'm glad this one has the cook top space and the place to hang the cooking utensils. I'm also glad we haven't had to use it yet!  I also haven't been successful in lighting a fire myself... I can do that in open air no problem, but for some reason this thing is a different beast! I'll get it yet!

 Our gas bill isn't crazy expensive (Our electric on the other hand O.O)  But we do have power outages more frequently then some places, which kick out the furnace due to it's electric parts.  I'm curious though, as to how much the gas bill will drop since we've used it almost everyday for a better portion of the day for the last month....
That's super cute about the dogs, Onyx.  The cats are the big fans in this house. The dog on the other hand, she's always looking for the coldest spot on the basement floor! She's to fluffy. Smiley

That would be nice!!  Our code had an "inches from inflammable surface from back corner of the stove" and "Inches from the ceiling" which both are met with some wiggle room.   It's an incredibly tall stove, but a very nice and effective one.  Thanks TheMistressT!

In the fall, before the snow flew, my husband and I embarked on our first ever tiling project.  He's a Plumbing and Heating Journeyman, so the putting in of the wood stove was old hat, but not the tiling!
He did the majority of the work; the parts with the tile saw, and glue; I did the grouting.  The grouting was a nightmare!  The grout was old stock, and actually discontinued, so when I ran out after 3/4 of the tile had been grouted I died a little inside.... Thankfully there was a similar product by the same company in the color, and given I was only the left facing part unfinished, it didn't really matter, since you always get some difference wall to wall anyway.  I'm glad you can't even tell.

These circle tiles, while on sheets, were terrible to grout. some of the grout stuck to some of the tile, it sank a lot when it dried, so nothing is flush. It's a good thing we have a good vacuum.


The wall tile was much easier to grout. Washed right off. Aside from the previously mentioned curveball, it went well!


Here's the finished pic, before the first fire..


And one with a fire a blazing!


It's really nice to have, considering we are sometimes without power, and therefore without heat. We've been using it anyway, since wood fires at christmas and new years are cozy Smiley

Thanks for looking!

ha! the flipped pics look super stretched to me!  I have no idea why it did that!  Th bottom picture is the right proportions...

FUN!!!! You'll have to add a photo for when they have been hung on the tree!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

I never think about making fiber ornaments, but have had friends ask for pieces specifically for that purpose. Guess I should get a clue! lol!!

I totally will. Our tree won't be up until Saturday, tho... We are a bit slow this year!

Thanks everyone!!
