Very lovely photos. Purples and lavenders are the best colors.

How beautiful! Your notecards illustrate well how colors sort of merge to the next color, such as the top--the periwinkle is purple but headed towards blue I think! Great photos!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage March 18, 2014 at 3:59 PM  

I enjoyed your notecards, and I am amazed at how many shades of purple there are - I love them all!

Beth March 18, 2014 at 4:02 PM  

Your photos are lovely; the first one is my favorite. Very pretty notecards!

Kathryn Ross March 18, 2014 at 4:36 PM  

Simply lovely, Sue! What POP to all those deep shades of gorgeous! The Lord God made them all, to be sure! Taking joy in them - as I see you do, too.

Now - where on earth do you live with 80 degree temps at this time of year and planting outside! This South Jersey girl is pretty over winter - more sub zero temps coming next week, too! Ah - spring cannot come to early or stay too long for me this year!

Another beautiful thoughtful offering for Vee's Note Card party. Love your theme and how you brought it together!

What beautiful shades of purple! I love hydrangeas and had a beautiful purple hydrangea shrub in my garden when I lived in Brooklyn, NY, that I miss. I can't grow them here as the deer eat them all. Nice to find your blog through Vee's Note Card Party!

Oh my goodness...the word that come to mind is "LUSHIOUS."

I just adore all of them and the colors are just breathtaking.

Happyone March 18, 2014 at 7:15 PM  

I really like purple and you've captured some pretty shades of it.
My computer room is a light shade of purple.

bj March 18, 2014 at 7:16 PM  

Purple is such a beautiful color...love all shades....
hugs, bj

Hi Sue, These are so pretty. Purple/lavender were mother's favorite colors. She had so many flowers in the garden in these colors. Always a pleasure to visit with you here.

I have thought of it often, that He didn't even have to leave us color to enjoy, and yet He did. What an awesome God we serve.

Farm Girl March 18, 2014 at 7:54 PM  

Just beautiful Sue, I love all of your colors of purple.

The Quintessential Magpie March 18, 2014 at 8:05 PM  

They are beautiful, and so are you!



Pamela Gordon March 18, 2014 at 8:15 PM  

Gorgeous photos and shades of purple. Only God can create such beauty. Pamela

Debby Ray March 18, 2014 at 8:38 PM  

You are so right! I love purple in all shades too. Your photos are breathtaking...a beautiful set of cards!

~Lavender Dreamer~ March 18, 2014 at 8:55 PM  

These are all so beautiful and I think I see some shades of lavender in there, too! Perfect for cards! Hugs!

Gazing at God's beautiful creation, revealing and reflecting His glory, invokes worship in my soul. Every time.

Vee March 18, 2014 at 9:55 PM  

Fruit with a water droplet always makes me thirsty. I should have that photo near the kitchen sink to remind me to hydrate. Yours is the first color theme I have seen this month and you have chosen a beautiful one.

Cheryl @ TFD March 18, 2014 at 10:40 PM  

You have some very beautiful shades of purple! Your photos make such pretty note cards. Enjoy your week, Sue!

Cranberry Morning March 18, 2014 at 11:13 PM  

Beautiful flowers! I cannot WAIT to see flowers in my yard. Is spring really coming to Wisconsin this year? Lovely notecard images!

Linda H March 18, 2014 at 11:33 PM  

Who doesn't love purple? It's such a great color and photographs so well. Those hydrangeas are spectacular!

Lorrie March 18, 2014 at 11:39 PM  

Lovely, vibrant color for your note card selections. Hydrangeas are such lush, gorgeous flowers. I can hardly wait to see them bloom once again this summer.

Karen Harvey Cox March 19, 2014 at 10:34 AM  

I have a friend who adores purple, and she even has purple hair! I love your Hydrangeas, my favorite flower. Gorgeous note cards.

Debbie March 19, 2014 at 11:01 AM  

The pictures/cards are just wonderful and I totally agree with your sentiment. I feel the same when I look at shades of pink or even green. Only a supernatural God could have such supernatural creativity.

Mary March 19, 2014 at 11:52 AM  

Thanks for stopping by Sue.
Loving your hydrangeas - my faves in my garden too - hopefully after all this rain they will bloom profusely come Spring!

Lovely cards -

Cindy March 19, 2014 at 12:48 PM  

Wonderful shades for sure and beautiful choices for notecard party

Donna Heber March 19, 2014 at 4:43 PM  

Hi Sue,

Your notecards are beautiful! I just can't wait for the flowers to bloom again. We still have snow on the ground. Your hydrangeas are gorgeous!

Kathleen March 19, 2014 at 7:31 PM  

Beautiful! I am dreaming of hydrangea time!
Thanks for coming to see my blue table! :)

Cheryl March 19, 2014 at 10:48 PM  

Gorgeous, gorgeous photos, Sue!! Another testament to the limitless creativity of the Creator!

Andrea March 21, 2014 at 6:07 PM  

Absolutely adore your note cards, Sue!! Such beautiful colors... and to think that we will once again be seeing them as spring is upon us. It's hard to believe after the long & hard winter we've had... but as sure as winter follows autumn, spring follows winter. And I'm so grateful!

Blessings~ Andrea

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
