Spot the different.




As you know I like garage sales, and last Saturday I bought two little furniture items. But of course they needed a bit of my own touch. So I painted them white and made a new cover. Now you can spot the different. I thinks it looks much better.

I love garage sales, it's great when you see the beauty in old stuff other s don't. You did a great job. I'm in the process of getting my copper chandeliers in a better shape and can't wait to see how they turn out.

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.
