Lots of things done !!

Do you know the feeling when you have done lots of things and they are all finished. It gives me a great and satisfied feeling.
There was a bag with shells in the garage for months , I had my plan but still no time and idea how to do. But I did it , I made a great framed artwork with all the little shells from our last holiday. I glued them all on a piece of canvas that I bought in a shop and painted in my favorite colour lavender.

And the chair is finished. With some fresh white paint and a new fabric cover it is e new chair for me. We bought a little desk that I put in the spear bedroom and with this chair it will give me some great working space. I already used it quite a bit this week.

And I made some more friends. The pink one found already a new home and the others are for a shop. I put some in my Etsy shop a well.

And last but not least this is the last project where I'm working on. It is still work in progress but I tell you later all about it.

hi again. I've just caught up with your blog after our trip away. You have been sooo busy and made so many beautiful things! You put me to shame because you get things from garage sales and then vey soon after they are transformed and in use - a fair few of mine end up sitting in my garage for way to long before they are made presntable for the house!! x

ben eindelijk een beetje aan het inhalen op je blog. Wat een mooie quilts, knuffels en art work heb je gemaakt zeg. Leuk dat je ook af en toe wat veranderingen in je huis laat zien !Enneh lekkere recepten ben ik altijd voor in ;)


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.
