Do you have a collection? I think we all have. I'm collecting bird houses (most are from garage sales) and put them all in the garden as a garden decoration, not that I have a lot but you have to start somewhere isn't it.
The best one is the bird caravan that I found in a great shop in Eastborne close to Wellington. If I was a bird I definitely should choose that one to live in.
And do you like to join me on a walk true my garden, here we go...

I envy your greenery and new growth. The overbearing heat here and lack of rain has meant my garden is looking very sad, dry and droopy.
Enjoy it for me, won't you!

aahhh, I needed that little walk, thank-you Jacoline!


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.
