Hello Monday and a trip to a Farmhouse!

Hello! A new week at My Dream Canvas begins with a trip to an ancient  farmhouse! I was completely captivated by this image of an armoire filled with fabrics from India. A riot of colors, it tempts you to look deep within to find an unexpected treasure!  The only problem with it is that you need to travel to France to do that :-) A young couple discovered this farmhouse in 1992 and decided to call it home!

As you move from one room to another..........the rustic and ethnic touches draw you into this old farmhouse. From the little that I understood from the magazine, which is in French, the owners travel all over the world and especially to India to collect objects from a bygone era. World travelers and bargain hunters, Xavier and Morgan, buy and sell these delightful artifacts and curiosities. Their home reflects this passion and hosts their fabulous collection.









I do hope you enjoyed your visit!
