~Notecards for May~

Written by Sue, Tuesday, May 20, 2014                A beautiful day, sunny and warm 70's

I call this month's note cards....
~God's little Creatures, Designed and Created by Him~

~I am praying for you~

 ~If I can do it, so can you~

~Congratulations I knew you could do it.~

Hang on, things will soon change

~My note card box top~

I don't think I did this post justice, my only excuse is, I am so busy here at the farm, but I could not let the day go by without joining one of my favorite friend's party, and the  hostess with the mostess. Thank you Vee for hosting. I will be by this evening to visit all of the guests, as we are working on a major work project today. 
Please join us at A Haven for Vee, and share photos that you think would make great notecards.

I loved this post and the sentiments you chose to go with those creatures!

Vee May 20, 2014 at 2:33 PM  

These are the very kinds of cards I so often need to send. Hallmark needs to start paying attention! Really cute, Sue. Love'em.

Christine May 20, 2014 at 2:49 PM  

OH, you DID do it justice.
those little creatures are so interesting. We don't have them over here in the Pacific Northwest.
So interesting!

(Thank you for your prayers and kind words these past few weeks. It meant a lot to me.)

Debbie May 20, 2014 at 3:47 PM  

Oh these are perfect Sue! Such GOOD photos! And the expressions you have to go with them are perfect too! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Delightful note cards and as a nature lover, I'd want to receive one of them.

Carol May 20, 2014 at 4:47 PM  

Your cards & captions are wonderful, Sue! You have captured a part of nature that most of us overlook. My favorite is the praying mantis.


Veralynne Malone May 20, 2014 at 5:07 PM

Dear Sue, I love your pictures of the insects. Mary gets such a kick out of praying Mantis and I love to photograph dragon flies too! I also loved, loved your post about your mom's hands. So touching, it made me want to cry. Thank you for your encouraging words on my blog down through the years. You are a gem and so glad to know you through your blog!

kitty May 21, 2014 at 9:24 PM

Sue, you did a wonderful job but I know what you mean, iI was rushed too and think I could have done better.

Debbie May 21, 2014 at 9:52 PM  

These shots are amazing. I have never been able to find and shot detail like this. I love them.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest May 22, 2014 at 12:11 AM  

Your pics are amazing - there is no way I could get so close to those neat but kinda creepy bugaboos.

I know, I am such a city kid, haha.

Love your sentiments on your cards too - esp the "hang in there" one, so cute!!

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.
