D is for Dreams

I think we all have dreams and most of the time your dream will always be a dream. But for me a dream came true. One if my dreams is to help people in need. On one day when I am old and wise?? I like to go to a place and help.

But we are in New Zealand and I think all of you know we had some horrible earthquakes and people have lost love ones, houses, work and much more.
They need help and the only thing we can do is donate money, lots of money.

We came with the idea to organize a high tea and make money to send to Christchurch.
I can tell you it was big and beautiful and a great success. We made approx $4500 dollar. Have a look at the pictures and see what you think of it.


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.
