Kitchen craft




The weather is terrible at the moment, rain, hail, thunder and wind. But never mind it's winter, better times coming soon.
We are still busy renovating the kitchen. We took an old wall out and make a new wall. By the time we wanted to paint we discovered a leak behind the new wall :(
I can tell you that doesn't make you happy. Andre fixed the problem so we could start painting. That part already looks great now. I made a drawing of a bench and shelves that Andre is making at the moment. I really like the decorating part so I made cushion for on the bench and from the leftovers a love heart. I can't wait to put it on and have our first breakfast in the "new" kitchen.

Heel leuk! Gezellige, warme kussens. Beetje holland tintje met die rode ruitjes!

oooh schattig zeg die stof, idd een beetje hollands met die spulletjes. Zal ik je wat hollandse lintjes sturen daar kun je vast ook wat leuks mee doen !

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.
