Bath-room make over

Before.

Cleaning, sanding painting, last weekend I did it all. I gave the girls bathroom a little make over. Every house in New-Zealand has two or more bathrooms. In the beginning I thought that's a bit over the top but now we are having our own en-suite and the girls have there own bathroom I think it is wonderful.
When we moved into the house two years ago we already did the walls and the ceiling but never did the rest. So now it was the time to do it.
You can tell me what you think about it. It think it looks much better!


After.



I love the new door knobs. Bought them in a great shop in Wellington called Magnolia.





Of course I made a little flower arrangement from fresh flowers out of the garden.
Flowers make the house a real home.
And I bought the girls a range of new bath products. But now we have the problem that they won't come out of the bathroom anymore.


And last but not least I want to show you the best breakfast ever. Sunday it was mothers-day and we don't really celebrate it because my birthday is a week before, but my little 10 year old made me this lovely breakfast and a great painting. The other two girls where off to there weekend job and daddy was biking, so we had a great time together. Thanks darling I love you!!!
xxx Mum.

Amazing job on the bathroom
OK, I concede that the bathmat is beautifully suited to that gorgeous new room.
Lucky girls!

i always love the European idea of white on white. (Might be because my mummy was German.) You can then introduce any feel you want. You have done an excellent job.

In één (of drie, maar net hoe je 't bekijkt) woord; GE-WEL-DIG!! Super badkamer geworden! En inderdaad, de badmat is supermooi bij deze supermooie badkamer.

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.
