I spend a lot of time sharing news, ideas, tips and “how-to” posts about fireplaces.  It’s fun! This week, however, while researching and writing about fireplace-centric topics, I came across a post about chimneys that was unexpected, visual, and kind of fun. I just have to share it with all of you.

Now granted, chimneys are related to fireplaces. But this post from chimneylinerpro.com featuring chimneys took me to places around the world–unexpected places–to show me creative, beautiful, ornate and even fanciful chimneys.

“While most chimneys are distinctly utilitarian, being everyday objects that go unnoticed by the majority of onlookers, some have transcended their base functions in both appearance and style, becoming works of art in their own right and proving that even purely practical constructions can still be creative and inspiring.”-Chimneylinerpro.com

This post has been a really fun find for me, and I hope you enjoy it too!
