Dancing with colors at AVOCA

The entry of the mill... 

These atmosphere made my heart jump... like paradise...


Whom will this blanket warm next winter?

Machine weaving...

I wanted to take this cupboard home...

and this one as well...

Lovely details...

That's what the mill looks like inside. 
A feast of colors - the atmosphere being very informal and despite  the noise of the machines calm.
I felt so very happy here - I could have stayed forever.

Good luck, I was allowed to take pics and I am thrilled to share them with you.

Cheerful Monday everyone and come back tomorrow for part III!
