Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Just Had To Join the Party

Okay I have never been successful in these linky parties...but it hasn't kept me from joining a party or two.  So today I just had to put on my party clothes, which are a little looser these days, and join in Vee's Note Card Party.

The Beauty of Spring


These butterflies were hatched in a jar last spring...these are Benjamin's Butterflies.


Spring shouts out "seasons of love" as we enjoy the blooming roses...this rose's reflects in my first gift from my would-be-husband, which I received at age 17.  The gift mirror reflects not only the rose, but also the mirror from my first and only, master bedroom dresser mirror.  Reflections of 32 years of marriage.

This time of year we see the power of God through the spring storms.  What beauty can be seen when we look to the sky.  Looking to His peace through, during and after the storms.

The Storms gave way to Beautiful Flowers.  This would have to be on a Note Card to promote TEXAS!  Photographer on the last two pics...my talented daughter, sissy, just has to catch her little brother through her lens.

Thanks Vee...this was fun!!




A Haven for Vee

Your note cards are beautiful ~ each one of them!

Tammy @BeatriceBanks said...

Beautiful! That last one took my breath away. I'm a native TX girl. I think you could make money on that one! Nice to find you via the card party!

Debbie said...

Good morning! Such a fun idea for a party...I thought about joining too. Maybe next time. Loved all of your pics, but that last one of Benjamin needs to be blown up and displayed in your home somewhere. LOVE IT! Soo cute, and perfect. Have a good day Janette!

Sue said...

Hi Janette, another great talent of yours, your photography is absolutely stunning, I loved all of them, but we already know which are my favorites, don't we? Benjamin in his stetson among those beautiful flowers should be printed and framed. Great job, I am so glad you joined the party.
Hugs,
Sue

Sally said...

Lovely pics! The rose is so pretty!

Vee said...

Ohhhh, so glad that you joined in! Your set of note cards is a delight and that last one...wowie! This is the easiest party you'll ever love. It's so easy and so much fun! Tell your readers — the third Wednesday of the month means Note Card Party. We'd love to have them all join the fun.

Beautiful photos that would look great as note cards. How fun it must have been to watch the butterflies hatch in the jar.

Debbie said...

Simply beautiful! That last photo of Benjamin in the lavender fields is awesome. You ought to submit it for Texas promotion.

Love,
Debbie

Farm Girl said...

Very nice. They are all lovely photographs, I love the one with Benjamin in the bluebonnets.

Lisa said...

Love all your pretties, Janette! Especially your beautiful mirror and all the lovely bluebonnets! I haven't seen many this year. I don't know if it's the drought or what. Guess I need a little hill country trip to get my wildflower fix.LOL!

Robin @ Happily Home, After said...

Loved your selection of photos but that last one is the sweetest ever! That photo should be on a postcard promoting Texas! Thanks for sharing.

I, too, love the photo of your sweet boy in the bluebonnets. But I also love the symbolism and layers of meaning in the "reflections" shot.

Thanks for sharing your lovely note cards...and for visiting me at Thinking About Home. (Should I send you an invitation to our next birthday bash? The more the merrier!)
