Happy days !

Today was one of my lucky days!
It was raining cats and dogs and it was really cold and I didn't want to go to the mailbox because it is at the beginning of our drive way. But I went and there was a big surprise waiting for me. A parcel from The Netherlands from Marian (vuurvlindertje).
She told me a while ago that she loved receiving real post from the postman so we send each other our addresses and I send her a card. But she send me a great parcel. Thanks!!!!!

I couldn't wait to open it and was really happy. She also send something for the girls. That is so kind. They love it!!

1000 times thanks , hope you like coffee. I made this especially for you. Enjoy!!!

On her blog she wrote about a project to make dolls for kids in Nicaragua. I think it is a fantastic project. So if you have some spare time please go to here and make a doll. You will make a little boy or girl very happy.
And what is better than make somebody happy.
You made me happy, Marian, Thanks!!

Het is altijd leuk om post te krijgen (als het geen rekeningen zijn ;-))

Ik vind de badkamer super mooi geworden. Snap soms niet waar je alle energie en tijd vandaan haalt. Bij mij blijven de ideeen vooral in mijn hoofd zitten.

Hoi Jacoline,
Moest nog even "bij" lezen hoor! Wat weer een leuke posts allemaal... de badkamer heeft echt een "make-over" gehad en die badmat vind ik zo mooi. Prachtige stofjes heb je er voor gebruikt. En wat leuk om zo'n verrassingspakket in de brievenbus te vinden :))
Hoe gaat het met de make-over van de stoel ?
Groetjes, Janneke.

Ja, er gaat toch niets boven "echte" post! Heerlijk als er zo'n pakketje op je ligt te wachten! En die koffie ziet er weer heerlijk uit, vooral die mars mellows bovenop!

You lucky girl!!!


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.
