Time to relax....?

The laundry is finished. Not really because there is always some washing to do but the painting and decoration is done. It looks great and I'm happy with the end result.

It looks fresh and welcoming although it is not my favorite room to be.

My little girl made the curtain in front of the cat door.

I found this piece of driftwood on the beach and with some hooks we made this.

Time to relax.... No , there are heaps of feijoas and I want to make feijoa crumble for dessert and I'm still painting more and more doors.

This is how it all looked before, that's why I don't want to look back.

You did a wonderful job, so pretty and I can identify with it not being the room you want to spend too much time in but when you do it is lovely to behold. I hope you enjoy your Monday. Hugs, Margie.

Dat is wel een hele leuke voor/na verandering! En dat strandhout dat vind ik top!
Mooi gordijn gemaakt door meisjelief.. Gaat goed daar bij jullie! Nog even stug doorschilderen en je hele huis wordt een droomlocatie :)
Groeten, Corine(THUIS)

A laundry can be a good place if it looks like yours - lovely.

Great before and after shots - you wouldn't recognise it as the same room! x

Hi...I'm Laura from Italy! I love your blog!
I'd like to invite you to visite also my blog :D

Laura from Italy


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.
