Friday Fun: Renovation Projects

If only I had the time, money and energy to rescue some of these wonderful, gracious old buildings! That’s what I would do with my millions, instead of stashing them in offshore funds.  And then open them to the public as cultural venues.

  1. Love the top one … something very Gatsby about it. I’d love to renovate somewhere but maybe not quite on that scale … plans in place to revamp an old shed into my writing den.

  2. I rather like the look of that Casino – could be made very special if I had the time and money!
