A Fireplace and a Flame without the Flue.

Today is the second coldest day of the 2010 Fall season, and I am already o-v-e-r it! I’m a lucky girl in that I have a nice big wood-burning fireplace. Already, it’s been used two nights in a row (even though it took me a good hour to get some wood logs burning last night. Shnighty!). However, nothing beats the lure of a roaring fire. But some of us urbanites might not be so lucky to have a log burning fire and a flue. If you don’t have the luxury of a crackling hearth or even an insert gas version, you can add some romance and a environmentally friendly spark to your home with a roaring fire that needs no tending to and requires minimal cleanup.
