Little gift.

Today I had a great day. The girls are back at school and Lieke is happy on her new school. Always exiting the first few days but she is a very social girl. The teacher told me everything is going really well.
It was raining almost the whole day and I had a big day in. I bought some furniture on a garage sale last Saturday and it needed a bit of paint. So I stared my day with a lot of white paint. In between I made some plum jam and I finished my little Christmas quilt that I already made for somebody to give away with Christmas. And last but not least I made a folding photo Album. We had guest over for a week and they are traveling now over the South Island. On the way back to Auckland they are staying for another night at our place. So I would like to give them a little souvenir to take home. I made a fold out photo book that needs to be filed with pictures, we made while they were at our place. We all can write something in it to make it a really personal gift. I love photo's you can never have enough of them. I'm sure they will like there little gift.

Great idea and I love the map cover !


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.
