Bags, bags and more bags.


First I like to thank you all for the great comments and nice e-mails that I received from you.
It makes me so happy and gives me spirit to write new posts and make new photos.
I had a busy time this weekend. I decided to paint the kitchen table, site table and a handful little items white, so that was and still is my job these days. I paint everything white and for the finishing touch I sand it. My husband thinks I'm crazy but it gives a nice old effect.
But I love painting, it is so relaxing and when I see the result it makes me smile. One of my girls joint me and she is painting her bed white (pink isn't cool anymore if you are turning 13).
So we spend almost a whole weekend in the garage painting.

And another exciting thing is that I opened my own on-line shop. I made a handful of great bags. I'm selling them on Etsy. I'm very exited about it. I always dreamed about my own shop, but with 3 girls and a busy working husband that was not working. But here is my chance and I hope it will work well.

Veel succes met je Etsy shop! Wat een lekker formaat tassen maak je. Mijn tassen vallen vaak wat te groot uit en daardoor zeul ik veel te veel met me mee!

Introducing

This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
