For those of you who have been reading My Dream Canvas for some time now, know of my love for old homes and restoration projects. I am instantly drawn to homes with character and this one has an interesting past as well :) This home was discovered by the owners in a small town called Carisbrook in Victoria, Australia. Many of the town’s buildings date back to the1850's and so does this seven room building which was originally a butcher shop!!
Not sure how I would feel about that :) However, the home is filled with interesting things collected by the owners over the years. Little treasures, antiques and junk lovingly restored by them to create a home that is warm, cosy and well loved!
This unusual and striking artwork came with the house!
I love how recipes are written on the chalk board splash back in the kitchen.
Such a pretty outdoor space!
Charcoal drawings by the owner hang beneath a landscape inherited from her grandmother. The cottage clock was acquired at auction.
What did you think of this house? I would love to know.
