I kept going into my board and looking at it, wondering how to get one.
Then, on the Sunday, like a magical sign,
…LOOK WHAT I FOUND…
While driving around Campbell Town waiting for Mic to finish his 65km bike race, the boys and I stumbled onto this up a side street.
I had to stop and take a pic, well lots actually.
Straight away, I thought of that house in the first image.
My mind started racing as to all of the things that needed doing.
This amazing house is in need of some major love and attention.
The outside is covered in flaky paint, missing fret work and a very sad roof.
But the great bones for a masterpiece are there.
Even the garden is on its way. Who ever owned it previously started the dream
…little European box hedges, topiary roses, agapanthus…
and those amazing established trees.
I had to take a closer look as I drove very slowly by.
All the window coverings were off…why?
I didn’t care at first, I just wanted to see what was inside.
You know what was inside,
drop cloths covering furniture, a ladder, paint and brushes.
You know what that means?
…soon this house will be the first image!!
I was SO excited to see that someone is fixing this old lady up
making her look like she should.
(I did also happen to spy cast iron fireplaces, ornate cornices, old cricket bat doors…)
I am going to have to make a point to return to this old house and see what they have done,
have a drool and wish it was mine
….and not look like a house stalker!
