Please DON'T Light The Fire!

Here in southern California, the land of valet parking even at the mall (where's the sport in that?) and bundles of firewood costing about $7 at the grocery store. (I do purchase 3 to 4 maybe 8 a year.)  

There are more days of the year where decorative logs like these would make the hearth look inviting - But please don't light it!

individual log FOR SALE!   A huge investment that moved me to search further....

Made In Michigan

bundle of white birch   Nice that they offer varying diameters in each "costs a bundle" bundle.

Great look for a faux or out of service hearth.

from Europe    French firewood?  ("tu eesch heez ohn!")

When firewood becomes modern art!

logs and "tiles" from United Kingdom

Many colors available.....
stained to match your decor

I admit, this is something I could/wood do.

DIY with crappy wood and paint you find in your garage.

DARN IT!  I can not find (can not scan & download without help from my child) a photo from my inspiration file that is something I must finally do this spring.

Paint a bundle of heavily textured logs white.  (so much paint they look dipped)

That's what I've seen!
It looks like they are made of glass or glazed ceramic - so great for summer.
But....Please don't light the fire!!!

Cheers!  Linda


  1. Hi Linda,
    Interesting post...I do love the look of firewood packed into a fireplace out of season...which is quite long here in CA...that last one where they are dipped in different colors...that's new to me. Funny about getting your child to help with scanning..I have tech questions for m 17 year old every day...can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. Thank you Annie! Cherish the live in assistance while you still have 'em. I find that Starbucks bucks and homemade cookies get me a lot of I.T. support. :-)


Hello! Your comments are the interaction I look forward to while writing my posts.
Cheers! Linda
