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!

You just can't beat white paint! Love the idea of the pegs and line in the picture frame too. Cherrie

Geweldig mooi! Knap van je dat je door de stoflaag heen kunt kijken en al kunt zien wat het gaat worden!
Jammer dat je winkeltje niet dichterbij is!

Mooie gehaakte deken ook trouwens.
Groetjes uit Melbourne,


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.
