Some work to do!

After a long time we went to some garage sale on Saturday and I must say it was worth wile.
I'm always a bit in a hurry because I have to open my shop in the morning as well, but for some great garage sales you make some time.

The car was full with bits and pieces and most of the are already in use. What a bit of white paint can do. Have a look yourself.

One small table is in use at the back veranda to enjoy the midday and evening sun.

From the old brown frame I made a lovely picture frame that is for sale in my shop. Two weeks ago I made one like this and it was sold within a day.

And the little shelf rack found his place in my workspace behind the shop.

And you have never enough tables to put things on in the shop, so the small one is for the shop and is for sale as well.
It was a busy weekend but I loved it!

Shop update and trade me.

After a long break here some pictures from my shop.

We are working hard on e website but it is not working jet, but for the ones who are living in New-Zealand like me you can find me on Trade-Me as well. I trade under the name lovelyliving, so have a look and happy bidding :)
Tell all you friend about this great opportunity.
And when my web site is in the air you are the first one to know.

On trade me there is just a small collection of what I sell, but I you see something on one of the pictures don't hesitate to ask.

Sorry for my long break, but I needed some time off after all what happened.
I never had the feeling before that I could sit on the couch and doing nothing even my brain wasn't thinking. But I'm back now and I worked hard in my shop to make lots and lots of stock for Christmas. Maybe you are not thinking of Christmas jet but as a shop owner you start thinking of Christmas in may!


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.
