This past weekend, Clare had a little recital at home to run through her program for the piano competition in Paris, I invited my co-workers from the Saturday School over for the recital and of course a little Spring party.

Whenever I have a party at home, I usually prepared a dessert table, this weekend I had a premiere for these flower pots dessert.....

This week at

The challenge theme is THROUGH THE WINDOW, please stop by CCCB to check out the details!

This past weekend, DH and I drove to Colorado to see his daughter because yesterday was her birthday, so I get this card out right before we leave for the road trip.

I really didn't use this window die that much....

they are from MFT, the flower stamp and dies too.

Here are a few pictures from the road trip....

The I-70 to Colorado has lots of pretty sight, especially along the Utah stretch, it just like a huge national park, hundreds and hundreds of miles with sigh like these.

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 353 ~ Spring is around the corner!

This week at...

The theme is...

Spring is around the corner, Stella picked a lovely inspiration photo.

Here's my layout inspired by the Spring Feel photo.

The photos of the girls when they were young, we lived on 57th street, just a few minutes walk to central park south, we spent a lot of time there when we were new to the city. I miss those days and I miss Spring Time in New York City!

I hope you play along with us this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog!

This past weekend, DH and I went to Iowa for my brother-in-law's retirement party.

it was cold.......


after the party on Saturday, we drove to Des Moines, IA to spent a night with my sister-in-law Marilyn, since my older brother-in-law Dan passed away nearly 3 years ago, she hasn't been able to adjust, few months ago, she finally decided to leave Cedar Rapids, bought a mobile home and parked it at her daughter's farm, that way, she can spend time with her daughter and grand children, but yet has her own space. 
Iowa is really really cold, no wonder DH never want to move back there.


Growing up in the city and lived in NYC, the wide open farm land seems attractive to me, imagine your neighbor is like miles away.... ahhhh....

Since I am blogging less, I try to post my photos on instagram, if you like to follow me, here's the link - https://www.instagram.com/kirsty_vittetoe/

See you there!!!!
