Monday, My Day.

Monday, my day again. What happened with the time, hours, days , weeks.
Monday, my day off . I'm not talking about my beautiful beach walk and don't show you lovely pictures. You probably have enough off them.
But in between my paint jobs (an other door, a chair, a kids kitchen for the shop and some other bits and pieces) I've been to the beach , to the second hand shop and made some flower arrangements from the last autumn flowers out of the garden.

A few pieces of fabric that I found in the second hand shop. Sometimes when I see a fabric I know what I want to make. So the ideas are there, now some time to make it.

Do you know what our winter project is?

Are we thinking green house???
Great fabric finds.
Some people just don't know what they're throwing away!!

Prachtige bloemen en prachtige stof! Super. (wat ga ervan maken?)

Knap dat je weer een deur hebt geschilderd.

Hi jacoline,
Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. Did you relaise that I am from NZ? We are desperately trying to get our house sold so that we can move home. I have been in the UK for 18 years and really miss the Kiwi life style.
Your shop is absolutely gorgeous and now that I know I can buy CK from NZ I am happy to move there!!lol!!
Good luck with your shop and I hope your Mum is better and that eveything worked out's such a worry being on the other side of the world.
Hugs Ruth xxx

Love the using of the last flowers! The fabric finds are great. As for the window frames - are you setting up a new business in the recycling trade?!!!


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.
