January Notecard Party at Vees

Written by Sue, January 15, 2013          Cloudy, and cool today temps. 50's, yesterday it was high 70's
In honor of valentine's Day, coming in February, I decided to post my Valentine Notecards early. Hope you enjoy them! My friend Vee, host this wonderful party each month, please come and join, click on icon on my side bar. 

"Oh yes, I will marry you"

There is nothing like a "Mother's Love" 

"It takes two to make a marriage work."

"Looking for love in all the wrong places".

Hope you enjoyed these scenes from the farm, our animals always give us so much joy and pleasure.
Thank you Vee, for hosting.

Great animal photos! The ducks look like synchronized swimmers at the Olympics, so pretty.
I see you have a beautiful quilt on your dining table. So cozy!

Oh, my goodness! I loved each of these. The horses, the donkeys and the birds ... I'll be giggling all day at the tail ends!!!!

Great photos of animal couples. Love those ducks!

Vee January 15, 2013 at 7:31 PM  

They are all so darling! I love them all, though you did leave us chuckling. "Looking for love in all the wrong places"...Hahahhaaha...

You've been doing some work on the blog...love the header. Everything looks so beautiful in your dining room.

Hope that all the loose ends are coming together nicely. We've been missing you and it's just about to become busy on the farm again in another little while or has it already begun?

Hello Sue
How lovely to meet you at Vees!
Thank you for popping over to see me and leaving your lovely comment!

What could make nicer Valentine cards than your beautiful animal images - I have a special thing for donkeys!!!
Stunning photography!

We seem to have much in common - at the same stage in life too, so I've become your newest follower now!
I live far, far away from you in New Zealand - but with the magic of blogging we can be friends just with the click of a mouse - who would have thought!!

I love all of your photos today and the captions are just perfect. I love that Guinea photo.
I woke up thinking about you this morning. Because the way I woke up I started praying for your family and you. I just wanted you to know. That I will keep you in my prayers today. If nothing else than God would bless you the way you bless others, and me of course all of the time.
Have a lovely day today.

And "Looking for Love" has me rolling in the floor! :)

Debbie January 21, 2013 at 5:40 AM  

I just love these!!! I wish you could see the smile on my face. (Well, maybe it's best that you can't, since you would also see a ragtag bedhead and some serious morning face crinkle.)

Coloring Outside the Lines January 31, 2013 at 11:46 AM  

HA- thanks for the smile- I LOVE that last shot!

~Lavender Dreamer~ April 15, 2013 at 7:44 PM  

These are all so wonderful. I'm always trying to think of a theme for my cards but I never thought of this! How clever!

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.
