On our trip to the South Island a few weeks ago we made a lot of pictures from different mailboxes. We made a great print of it for the wall in the living room. We had a lot of different colours for the background but red was our favorite, exactly the same colour red as our bookcase. It looks great and every time I see it , it remind me of a great week. We had a lot of fun making all the pictures on the most difficult spots to stop a car. But we did it. I think it is the best souvenir ever!

Oh, wat enig zeg, al die verschillende super uitziende mailboxes! Zo heb ik ze hier nog nooit gezien, alleen maar de "standaard". Leuk om nog een "dutchie" in een heel ander land tegen te komen, New Zealand lijkt me ook geweldig mooi!

Dat ziet er leuk uit. Zie dat jij ook redelijk nieuw bent in blogland.
Mijn man gaat volgende week voor een weekje naar auastralie en nieuw zeeland (bizare trip voor zo'n korte tijd, maar goed) en nu ik je blog lees realiseer ik me pas dat het natuurlijk winter is bij jullie.

What a great idea and a brilliant reminder of your holiday!!!


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.
