when old becomes new.

July 20, 2010

Second chances are a rather phenomenal thing.  Don’t you think? They offer a sign of forgiveness, opportunity, excitement, restoration.

I love this idea of a second chance applied to buildings of note (or buildings not of note that are made noteworthy.)  I have the idea my bed and breakfast will be a rebirth of sorts. I hope it comes true.

Until that happens, maybe you’ll find some inerest in these:

1. Town Hall Hotel   (As you may have guessed, once a town hall in the height of the 1900s, now an incredibly beautiful London hotel.)

2.  Apartment Therapy showcasing a renovated barn.

    Karen,

    Made me think of the hostel Katy and I stayed in when we visited Ottowa some years back… in a repurposed Jail! Here’s a link: http://www.hihostels.ca/ontarioeast/405/hi_-_ottawa_hostel_hi-ottawa_downtown.hostel
