Our Beautiful World 175 ~ White

Hello friends, did you have a great Thanksgiving weekend?
We have a house full again, Clare and Jared brought Lila and their friend Catherine, and Dolce flew back from NYC with Coconut, we really had a lot of fun time together, the house is back to normal after they all went back this afternoon.

This week at....

The word is WHITE.

My photo is the famous WHITE gazebo in Botanic Garden, Singapore.

every Singaporean should recognize this WHITE gazebo, known as the Bandstand. It stood there in Botanic garden since 156 years ago.

 This tropical garden is honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so.... if you get a chance to go to Singapore, do make sure you pay a visit there.

Project Life 2016 ~ June 3 to 6 (Amsterdam)

 Project Life 2016

June 3
 We took the train from Grafing to Munich, and then fly to Amsterdam. The flight was delayed for 3 hours, we didn't get to Amsterdam early enough and only have time to walk around the neighborhood, look for something to eat.

We stay at Qbic hotel near the world trade center, despite the trouble I had with the booking while I was still in the States, the outcome turn out to be a happy one, they gave me two large rooms with window.....

I love the bed, I love the super fast internet connection

the bathroom and toilet has no door though, but I am the only one in this room, so it really doesn't matter.

June 4 
Today is a fabulous day, Wendy came to meet us at our hotel, and then we had breakfast together at Le Pain Quotidian

we exchanged gifts and then walk to the floating flower market....

 they have tulips in all sorts of colors....

and they also sell weed everywhere....

we passed by many beautiful canals.....

admiring those charming Dutch buildings.....

 it is hard not to notice the bell gables, step gables, triangular gables and neck gables...

 we had lunch together and then walked some more till we are really really tired.

Thanks for a wonderful day Wendy! : )

June 5
 Today is Museum day, first on our list is Van Gogh Museum.

Look what I got....

 it really cracks me up.... LOL!

The Anne Frank House is next.....

 being able to walk through their secret hiding place and reading her original hard written diary was an extremely moving experience for us.

 I am a big fan of Indonesian food when I was still living in Singapore, knowing that we can actually find very good Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam makes the trip even more exciting, this is also on my MUST DO list....

 they are really yummy, believe it or not, I actually bought home the best Sambal Manis from Amsterdam

We are leaving Amsterdam tomorrow afternoon, I already know that I am going to miss you Amsterdam! I really hope to come visit again!

June 6
We had breakfast not far from the Hotel, do a little bit of shopping and then ready to go to the airport, LONDON here I come! 

As you can see, it is almost end of November and I am still trying to catch up with my summer travel, sigh..... I really wish I could have more time to craft! Thanks for being patient with me.

This week at.....

The theme is GOLD FINGERS (check out challenge details HERE)

I used some of my GOLD self-adhesive paper from the very first PTI Market Kit to cut out the Eiffel Tower, the very fine GOLD trim is also from the same kit....

and the sentiment was stamped with GOLD ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Our Beautiful World 174 ~ Worn

When I was in Amsterdam this past summer, I met up with Wendy, we had fun walking the city and when we got hungry, we had lunch at this Japanese restaurant where I found a WORN piece of furniture....

I don't know why is it there but it sure caught my eyes....

one thing I love traveling in Europe, is that everywhere you go, you'll find something vintage just about anywhere... this one in Florence sure looks WORN too....

 Do you have a WORN out piece to share? Come join us at....

PTI Create Along with Us (November 2016)

Brrrr...... it is getting really cold here today, the crazy wind last night destroyed lots of stuff in our backyard, and today is super cold, oh well, it is in the 50s but we are in Vegas, this should not be the case! : (

My card today is for the challenge:

PTI Create Along With Us (November 2016)

I was inspired by the lovely creation by Amy Sheffer

See Amy's original post HERE!

I love the white embossing over solid color cardstock.....

the flower is a set from PTI called Lace Bouguet, I used PTI cover plate pretty frame die on this card too... 

the sentiment is PTI Mini Blooms Stamp Set...

 I was going to make a few just like Amy, but I really didn't like my own, so I decided to stop at one : (
