Because I'm insanely jealous of all of the lovely, summery, outdoorsy images posted by my northern hemisphere blog buddies at the moment, my plan for our new verandah area includes a gorgeous outdoor fireplace. Here in Brisbane, winter can be just glorious, so why not make the most of it? Of course, what better way to whet the appetite than by posting some inspirational images? I'd be happy with any of these beauties...hope my hubby is reading this!


Oh, now don't forget - the giveaway of one of my original paintings finishes Thursday, so pop on over here to enter if you haven't already!
