I is for inspiration

I am inspired by......... a lot of things. A saying like thing makes me very inspired the more you read it the better it is, I know we all try to live well, laugh often and love much but we can always do a bit more.

And I get inspired by lovely magazines.

I was so happy to see my own shop advertised in the back of the magazine, hope you are inspired to have a look at my website:

Have a great weekend!

G is for Garden.

I love gardening and I love flowers. It is autumn here so there are not much flowers in the garden at the moment. But i am sure you like a little garden tour.

Don't forget to check out my website:


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.
