ABC Wednesday: Fancy Fire Fixtures


Last week I showed you an elegant entrance at the Colonial Governor's Palace in Colonial Williamsburg, VA. This week I thought I'd take you inside the same palace for a look at some fancy fire fixtures.

The fanciest fireplace is in the main entrance room but there were so many people around it that I only managed a shot of the fancy firearms and swords on either side of the fireplace. There is also a candle which can produce a flame when lit.

I would love visiting this "museum", house.
I like a lot the fireplace, at the second shot.
And the stuffs in the last image are so interesting, vintage ones!

You should come and visit Windsor Castle.
It will the word "fanciest" into the next level.
Actually, the ultimate level. Ha ha...

I like the big Fat Furnace in the dining room, but that fancy fireplace is sure something, isn't it? Wow. Just gorgeous.

That fireplace is a work of art, sure beats the fireplace my dad made with rocks found around the beach, one that broke his toe.
