Here's a trailer from another great show that Ken and I watch quite a bit. Build a New Life in the Country is a gorgeously filmed series that follows couples from cities and towns in England as they move to the country to restore old ruins that they will one day live in. It is hosted by architect George Clarke, who is sensitive and wonderful. Every time we watch the show, I have this burning desire to move to a farm and start feeding chickens. Clarke also hosts a new show called A Dream Home Abroad in which English couples rebuild properties in European countries. These shows appear on BBC Canada. Check your local listings (I've always wanted to say that!).
I'm a slightly off-beat Toronto-area teacher who enjoys writing and photography. I come from a family of collectors and now I'm dragging my own family around to yard sales. It's just a bit of fun. Enjoy the scenes.
My husband and I stock a booth rammed to the rafters with vintage treasures at Valley Antiques in charming Dundas, Ontario. It's a few kilometers west of Hamilton. Come visit this best kept secret in Southern Ontario and swing by Valley Antiques. There are over 50 vendors selling cool and beautiful things and you won't be paying Toronto prices (speaking as a former Hogtown gal).
