Renovated Mill in France

Good morning my friends! I will be taking a short holiday today and I'll be back on Wednesday next week. I might post once or twice but, you know, as I'll be in Rio de Janeiro I'll have to go to the beach (poor me!).

It took Noël et Rozenn Bernasconi four years to renovate this seventeenth century mill, located in the south of France. It was quite a challenge as it had been vacant for several years and was in a sorry state. Let's enjoy the tour together!







To preserve the history of the mill, Noël has retained and enhanced the original features, such as the grinding wheel, which is the starting point for the new staircase. A glass pane covers the mechanism, preserved below.

Country House in Buenos Aires

Second post for you today. This country house in Lobos, in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Brimming with flea market finds, perhaps a bit over the top but you can see some interesting pieces in every room.

Hope you enjoyed our second tour! Goodnight, and sweet dreams!
