~Notecards of our fine feathered friends~

There's always room for one more!
No peeking!!

 Hey! wait for me.

Now! isn't this nice?

A most gracious hostess is having a Notecard Party, today. Thank you Vee, for the invitation, please come and share your photos. Until next time, 


Vee April 17, 2012 at 8:12 PM  

Oh phew! Everything's working. That's always good.

Oh I do love this set of note cards. I would use them most certainly. One of them made me laugh out loud!

Thanks, Miss Sue!

These are really great...and the "no peeking" one just made me laugh :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :) :) :)

I would love post cards with these pictures on them...and they would just sweep me away to a calmer place

(Queenmothermamaw) Peggy April 17, 2012 at 8:47 PM  

I agree these are great. I forgot to make mine a set. You great shots for sure.

Gorgeous and each one made me smile:@)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti April 17, 2012 at 9:03 PM  

I love all your cards...the diving ducks made me chuckle and the hens made me sigh, as I wish I could raise chickens and have frssh eggs!

Angela April 17, 2012 at 9:24 PM  

These are great. My favorite is definitely the diving ducks :)

bj April 17, 2012 at 9:31 PM

These photos are really beautiful note cards! Vivid photography and beautiful subjects!

Happy@Home April 17, 2012 at 10:00 PM  

I'd love to receive a note on any of these. I'd especially like to receive the "no peeking" on a day when I could use a laugh. Too cute.

Becky K. April 17, 2012 at 11:16 PM  

These made me smile. Perfect!!!

Lorrie April 18, 2012 at 12:10 AM  

These are wonderful photos! I love the one of the ducks "mooning" us. Or perhaps hiding their heads? Just great!

ButterYum April 18, 2012 at 12:15 AM  

I just love it when the cute little ducks stick their tails up in the air like that. I have so many duck hiney pics... glad I'm not the only one who gets a kick out of them when they do that!

I hope you'll stop by and visit my Note Card Pics.


Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter April 18, 2012 at 1:09 AM  

Your note cards are great, Sue! I especially love the 'bottoms up' one!

Coloring Outside the Lines April 18, 2012 at 2:15 AM  

Nice group of ducks and chickens! That second photo just cracks me up- I think they look so cute all "bottoms- up"!

Snap April 18, 2012 at 8:07 AM  

What fun! Your feathered friends started my day with a smile! Great selections for Note Cards!

Audrey April 18, 2012 at 8:59 AM  

Took a stroll through you blog this morning and really enjoyed it.

Great shots...of your feathered friends! Perfect note card photos.

Sally April 18, 2012 at 9:42 AM  

The "bottoms up" shot made me laugh! Great shots!

What a great theme for the cards. A set like this could be used for several occasions...I particularly like how whimsical the duck picture is.

Miss Sandy April 18, 2012 at 10:15 AM  

Love these! Those little upturned tails gave me a chuckle, that is the one I would want to receive.

Farm Girl April 18, 2012 at 11:19 AM  

Every single one of them could be a card. These are great, you know which one is my favorite right?
The chicken one of course, but the ducks upside down is pretty cute.
You take such wonderful photos.
Have a lovely day, my friend.

Beth April 18, 2012 at 12:57 PM

Cheryl April 18, 2012 at 1:24 PM  

Sue, what delightful photos you have chosen for your note cards!! Perfect!

(Taking a short break from cabinet painting...a girl's got to visit her friends, you know. :-)

Kati April 18, 2012 at 2:02 PM  

Pretty pictures! Animals are so much fun to photograph.

Denise April 18, 2012 at 2:50 PM  

These are so cute -- the diving ducks brought a big smile to my face! :-D I love animal pictures, and it takes patience and practice to get good shots of them. Thank you for sharing and have a great day!

By the way, your house is gorgeous! Looks like a dream.

Catherine Holman April 18, 2012 at 6:09 PM  

I always wanted to live on a farm and your photos make me wish that even more!

Robin @ Happily Home, After April 18, 2012 at 6:11 PM  

Stunning "feathered friend" photography! You only get one chance to snap a photo such as the "tails up" of the ducks ... it isn't like bribing a dog to sit still while wearing a santa suit ;) Love your photos and thanks for your sweet comment on my blog.


Kristi in the Western Reserve April 18, 2012 at 6:46 PM  

Wonderful set of notecards! You must live someplace very interesting!

bj April 19, 2012 at 7:41 PM  

You do take amazing photos. Wonder what kind of camera does this??? :)
O, I DO know the picture-taker MUST have some talent, too. :))

Jenni April 20, 2012 at 5:22 AM  

Love, love, LOVE those notecard pics, Sue..... especially the duck's "bottoms up". LOL! Hey, I am still praying for Susan and her darling girls....


Elena April 22, 2012 at 10:51 PM

Post a Comment

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.
