~ Note Card and other fun PARTIES ~

HELLO to all my sweet friends... 
I am sooo happy to be joining in so many great linky parties today. I hope you will come by a few...or all...and check out what everyone is sharing.
When we post something, most of the time it is because we are so proud of something we've done...
be it a great dinner, dessert, awesome crafting, something new or thrifted....KILLER photos....so of course we want to share. And, it makes ALL of us feel so good when others say such nice things.THAT being said,

it is once again time for VEE'S monthly
She asks that we submit 4 photos that have appeared on our blog at one time or another...
this month, I am going ALL THE WAY BACK to last fall.
My note cards this month are entitled
"AN AUTUMN MANTEL"
 "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
"Autumn arrives in early morning, but spring at the close of a winter day."
"The cold wind, the frosty rain, the colorful leaves, ahhh....... FALL."
"The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many."
♥ ♥ ♥
...excuse me....are they talking about ME ??  




Hahaaaahaha...this is such a fun party...as are these others:
WHITE WEDNESDAY
REDNESDAY
BUNNY HOP


This blogging is so much fun, ladies.....
thanks for making it the very BEST.

Love your pretty mantle BJ! The 'ruler' for lack of a better term, is such a cool edge and gives great definition to what's on the mantle:@)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Your photos are perfect for notecards! You have a knack of making everything so special! Hugs!

LV said...

BJ, it does not matter what you post, you make it fun. That is the way it should be. Just reading yours, helps me to keep trying. Firefox and Blogger are definitely acting up. Guess I will have to try and switch to Google Chrome. I am always scared to try and install something different.

Barbara F. said...

Hi BJ, great photos and love the special effects. I love fall, am patiently waiting on it :) xo

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Those would make a great set of note cards! The first pic is my fav! Hugs, Linda

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

These really would make great note cards! Although I am not ready to think about Autumn quite yet:)

I had to come see what you have been up to. I have survived moving all the furniture out, getting the carpet, moving it all back in...my niece's Chicago wonderful wedding and my dad bringing his girlfriend for a few days. Sigh. Now it is time to get back to checking up with my bloggy friends.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Flea Market Makeovers said...

They would make wonderful note cards BJ! I love them.

Vee said...

Has it been terribly warm in your corner? Downright hot? What has you dreaming of autumn so soon? I love this set of note cards...just love them...the colors are soft and lovely...and the sentiments are terrific. I love your sweet sense of humor!

Creations By Cindy said...

Such a sweet mantle! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You always have the prettiest mantle decorations, bj! The photos make wonderful note cards.

ellen b said...

Fun images from your fall mantle! No...they are not talking about you...I think they are talking about me. :0)

Designs By Pinky said...

I hadn't heard about ANY of these parties! Loved seeing your mantle again.

Debbie said...

Love the choices, and I think that last quote might be talking about ME too.

Have I ever told you that I smile every time I open your blog? I love your fun attitude toward blogging. It's contagious. Just thought I would say it now.

Cheryl said...

Ooooo...I believe that I have found someone who loves autumn as much as I do! :D

Your mantel is lovely and has me longing for fall. (Oh wait, I was already longing for fall...)

Lorrie said...

The mantel photos are great and what a fun post. Love the gray hair quote!

Millie said...

I really like the special effects you have used...lovely!

Judi said...

Hi BJ *hugs*
I love your white dishes...and your ruler edge shelves and delicious recipes but I do no want fall to come!...at least not for another 8 months! I'm not a fall person even though the trees are beautiful and the days are cooler. I'm not having any thank you..
have a great day
Judi

I love the sepia look to your autumn *cards* ... great selection for Vee's party!

Debbiedoo's said...

hi Bj! Your mantel is so cute. You always make your posts and photos so much fun. I have been out of touch too. Now that my boys are home for summer my time is limited on the computer. I have been thinking about the magazine copy cat challenge. May be early July, as this month is flying by so fast. We shall see, but I will let you know. Have a great day.

Mrs.Rabe said...

Autumn is my absolute favorite season!

Beautiful quotes too!
