Little girls room.

Lieke has the smallest room in the house so we had to create space for her to play. We gave her a bunk bed , it's easy to have friends over to stay the night. Kids always love to make huts and tents so I made a tent for her to put in front of her bunk so she can play there when she wants. For her it is the perfect spot to hide her toys and clothes when I ask her to tidy-up her room. I made flower pots with flowers and made felt flowers around the window and gave her a little curtain what she can close( if she wants to hide something).
I think it looks great and I love to sleep there once. Maybe I can arrange a sleepover with my little girl.

I made for all of the girls a personal chair with there name. For Lieke of course in pink and red. And she made a name tag for her door all by herself.

Hi, I hadn't thought of doing that when I had bunks for mine. What a clever idea! The window is so cute and would make her feel not left out too. If only I could do this in my teenagers room, I wouldn't have to be so depressed all the time. ;-) Cherrie

Hoi Lien,

Bedankt voor je leuke reactie op mijn blog! Wat een respect heb ik voor jullie emigratie. Echt tof!!
Hebben jullie het naar je zin? ik ben benieuwd.
Ik vind jullie huis ge-wel-dig!! Wat ziet die veranda er gaaf uit zeg!! Echt top!

Nou, groetjes uit het momenteel regenachtige nederland! Ik zal duimen voor je dat je de give away wint. En anders ga ik sowieso een keer iets leuks voor je maken en opsturen. Zo leuk.. een creatieve nederlandse in down under!!

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog Lien. Love your blog too. You are so creative. I love those houses you made. I got a copy of NZ House and Garden from Alison at So Tread Softly and saw similar ones in there.

Love how you have transformed Leike's room - every little girls dream to have her own little space! Those little house you made recently are really sweet.

Thanks for popping by, it's always so nice to hear from someone new and I'm in love with your NZ house! It's a place I've always wanted to visit and maybe will one day when finances allow!

I won't let my eldest see this. She's already in love with the idea of a bunk bed, if she sees this there will be no end to her discussions!

Lucky, lucky Lieke -- what a beautiful idea!!


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.
