On my table.




I love flowers, I think the best ones are from your own garden. We always have heaps of little vases around the house with fresh flowers from the garden. We have them on the toilet, in the bathroom, in the girls rooms and next to my bed. And we have always some flowers on the table.
This is what comes from our garden this week.

they are beautiful Jacoline! Thanks for sharing these photos, they put a smile on my face for sure! We are getting snow as I type from a cold front coming down from Alaska so the flowers are a nice reminder of what's to come!

Wha beautiful flowers, I still find it hard to come to terms with the fact that you are in summer while we are having a wet and cold winter. I have finally got around to accepting your challenge and have put up a new post. Also have awarded everyone on my blog roll with a Wow I love your blog award, so consider yourself awarded. hugs Margie.

Wat een prachtige bloemen, ze kunnen een kamer vrolijk maken vind ik.
Helaas bij ons nu geen bloemen in de tuin, alhoewel een bosje skimmia of een tak hulst ook heel mooi is. Komt er bij jullie een kertsboom??

Groetjes, Janneke.

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.
