Perfect solution

I loved the gas heater when I first laid eyes on it, but it was missing one of its ceramic bricks. The chances of actually finding a replacement were slim to none. Inspiration hit me upside my head this morning when I was looking at my bird nests. Instead of filling the space with an impossible-to-find brick, why not fill it with a sweet little bird nest?

I didn't permanently attach it if someone wants the heater in its natural condition. It would be so cute for Christmas. I am planning to place this in my booth at Betty's for the Open House on Saturday.

Now for the big question: what am I going to wear??

I find I'm most comfortable in a bow on my rear and glitter in my teeth!
That little stove is precious!

I use a old gas heater in front of my fake fireplace. Just love them. Much better than the central heat. Yours is really cool .

I remember using stoves like that. This one is fancier than any I ever had when growing up. Cute idea you had. Open house sounds like fun. Wear something vintage to match your stuff.

Oh so cute. I think the bird is the perfect touch!

That looks great.
I remember those heaters and wall heaters in the bathroom too.

Good luck at the Open House!

Try a hardware store sometimes they carry new ones.
