Warm feet.

I'm back home from work, had already one of my lovely bowls of coffee and have a great weekend feeling. No work for two days.
That doesn't mean there is nothing to do. I have a lot of things on my to do list for this weekend. First of all garage sailing tomorrow morning. I'm always a bit up sad if there isn't one. But we already looked in the news paper and we are lucky. One of the girls is in a ballet show for 2 days so that means a lot of driving in mums taxi. Up and down and up and down the theater. The weather forecast is rainy so I planed to do a lot of painting. The girls bathroom needs a lot of white paint and I bought a chair on a garage sale that needs a bit of white paint as well and a new cover. So lots to do for me.
I finished my bathmat and like to show you. When the weather is cooler now it is really nice to put your feet on a great warm bathmat.







Here a sneak peek, my garage sale chair that is waiting for a make over.


Have a great creative weekend all !!!

Woh what a great, great bathmat! It's almost a shame, a waist to stand on it!
Have a nice weekend. Good luck with all the painting jobs. I know the chair is going to look great!

Wat een heerlijke badmat! Hoe stik jij je werk door? Bij mij gaat het bij dit soort werk nog wel eens bobbelen. Ik heb weliswaar nu een freemotion voetje voor mijn machine maar goed dat beweegt dan ook wel erg vrij dus daarmee kan ik weer geen mooie rechte lijnen stikken. Ik heb je post ontvangen! Dank je wel! Heerlijk om die postbus weer eens te horen klepperen.

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.
