I am back !!

Maybe I should start blogging again.
Life is a bit busy , but I must say I miss blogging a bit. I'll give it a go.
In November I am organizing my Home an Garden Christmas fair again.  Last year was a huge success, people loved it, I loved it, so I do it again.
Yesterday (Monday)was my day off from working in my shop, but it was far from a day off. I worked hard to get my garden ready for the fair. Loved it !!
Here some images from the garden.

Easter is only 2 weeks away, so time for some lovely Easter decorations.
These egg candles are available from my shop and webshop, $3.50 each or 6 for $20.

If you are in the area, we have a big easter market on the 30th of March, Easter Saturday.
Bring a friend and come along, shops will be open and lots of stalls, hope to see you all.


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.
