Note Card Party Welcome

Okay, friends, I had to select a theme for myself. Otherwise, I'd have been sunk. I found the photo that a few had commented on as a favorite (it was also a favorite of mine) and from that photo settled on the theme: dishes. And, yes, I would like to have a set of note cards featuring dishes.









Note Card Party Rules:


1. Let's try not to make too many rules... ☺
2. Search for four photographs on your own blog that would make a nice set of note cards. They must have appeared on your blog by the time you link up. 
3. Write your post.
4. Link directly to your post below. 
5. Visit ten or so others (at least) and comment. Knowing that new visitors are viewing and commenting is part of the fun. (Permission granted to look and not comment at blogs practicing safe commenting. All those word verifications get very tiring when trying to visit a lot of blogs.)
6. Have fun!

Let's see how this goes. If we enjoy it, perhaps we can do it all over again on the third Wednesday of every month. Twelve times a year sounds about right to me. What do you think? One thing is certain, we all have pictures to share! 







Love Vee

  2. I love this idea and want to take part! Will you keep this linky up for a few days? Love your photos! ♥

  3. Once I get my feet back on the ground I'll try to join in the fun!

  4. Even though I have a private blog, is it okay to visit others? I won't vote as that wouldn't be fair, but I'd love to see your favorite photos.

    Vee, your photo choices would make beautiful note cards. I hope you make it happen.

  5. I had to come back and check the rules to be sure I am linking right. I am trying to decide if I want a related theme to my "note card" photos or a random set...decisions, decisions!

    Do we just show the photo or do we need to link to the post on our blog where the photo came from?

    Am I being confusing or am I just confused?

  6. I love them all Vee, but my all time favorite was the one with your lovely dishes in the sudsy water. It is gorgeous, and makes me think of cozy times in the kitchen.

    I can't wait to see what everyone has posted. I seem to have allot of photos (as always), but there's a surprise at the end.

    Happy note cards

  7. Shoot! I did not even tell you that I love your choices. These are so very Vee, a culinary artist, nurturing family, body, and soul with your kitchen creations. I love all glimpses of your kitchen and the things you create or decorate there, it is the heart of your home. It would be fun to have a set of your cards with some of your delicious recipes on them, yum! We still have Vee's Heavenly Chicken, as I have dubbed the recipe, love it!

    I'll be back to link up!

  8. HI Vee! Thanks for hosting this new meme. It was a challenge but fun to do. I love your choices - such pretty dishes - especially the one in the suds! Hugs, Pam

    ReplyDelete
  9. Gorgeous photos! I love dishes like yours with the pictorial scenes on them. And thank you for thinking of this linkup!

    I got my post ready for publishing in the morning and did my linkup. I didn't really put them together as a set, though there is an obscure photographic technique theme to mine. But I have used each of the images for note cards. I haven't bought any cards in about 5 years now, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm enjoying the party so much that I linked to it twice. LOL. Have sent you an e-mail explaining.
    If we continue to do this I promise to get it right next time.
    Anyhow, your photos would all look lovely on the front of a note card. There is something extra special about the cozy themed plate soaking in the sudsy water. I also like the teacups as they remind me of the birthday luncheons my mom once had for my grandma and her friends.
    Thanks for hosting the party.

  11. Vee...love your choices and that you chose a theme. Not sure which is my favorite...maybe the mug and sweet...but they are all good and I would be pleased to get a note on any of them. This was such a creative idea, thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hope I've got this right! Seems it could be a lot of fun...
    Thanks for the invite, Vee!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh I think this will be a lot of fun. Wasn't sure if I had a theme or not but I am ready for the next one too. I love you beautiful cups. Yes would make a great card.

  14. Everything is so pretty Vee, I believe I have a dish similar to your first one! Thank you for hosting, I was a little anxious because lately when i tried to join with Mr Linky, I had some problems, but you made it so easy, and for that i am so thankful.
    I am looking forward to visiting others too.
    Hugs,
    Sue

  15. I am finally linked up! I forgot to say that I love the sudsy plate! All the shots are wonderful but that one just captures me with a comforting feeling of washing holiday dishes with my grandmother, mother, and aunts.

    I love this idea so much I am borrowing it as a Christmas gift idea. I am already collecting sets of images from my blog to have printed up as gifts. Thank you for a brilliant idea!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I LOVE your photos, but just like others said, I love the plate in the suds the most! This is a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well, you know I am a dish fan! Love your photos...the one in the sink is fabulous! Thanks for hosting this party. I linked up....
    Hugs,

  18. What a fun idea! I'll try to find some images that are on this notebook - most are on the home computer, and I find they don't copy as well from the blog...I'll try!
    I love your collection - but I LOVE teacups.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love dishes, so I love your choices. I didnt know about this, saw it at Sue's. When does the link up end?
    That tureen is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh...I want to join...can I do it through this week still??? What fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Pretty pictures! Love the one of the tea cups. I just love tea! And the one of the dish in the dishwater is so pretty. I never would have thought to take a picture like that.

    Just linked up my post...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, I hope I didn't link up twice! I spelled my own name wrong the first time I tried. Sheesh!

    This is lots of fun, Vee...thank you for hosting this party. And are you getting tired of hearing about the sudsy plate? I hope not! It is so unique! And it doesn't hurt that I love brown transferware. Of course, I really like all of your selected photos. Dishes...sigh...

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love your choices, Vee! They are very unique and would make wonderful cards.

    I think I got carried away with emotion when I began loking at my photos Vee, and chose ones that were significant in some way to me. I've been feeling very sentimental lately. If you do this again I'll chose prettier ones next time.

    ReplyDelete
  24. what gorgeous photos you picked. lovely. i really love the tea cups. would love a cup of tea right now. yum. enjoy the day. (:

    ReplyDelete
  25. Still love that dishwater one the best...but they are all great!

    Thanks for hosting this party...I'm off to peek at the others and kick myself for having the nerve to join in.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love your photos,Vee, and sigh with "envy" at the assortment of beautiful dishes. Thanks for hosting the party! My kids will be here from Virginia later today but I am making time to go and visit all those lovely links.

    ReplyDelete
  27. i love your choices Vee. My favorite is the first with the plate in the dishpan. Is that Currier & Ives?
    Great fun!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful choices, Vee! I love the peaceful and elegant look of your of your pictures. And I really love your assortment of china!

    Thanks for hosting a fun party!

  31. "those practicing safe blogging"

    -chuckle- Great term for those, who make Dear Readers do that awful double Word Verification Setting, just to comment on their blogs.

    Delightfully WITTY term. And with a gentle *bite* to it too. Jane Austen would approve. ,-)

  32. What a fun idea for a party :-) My mother makes note cards from photos of her paintings, I save them all.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Good morning! I love this idea...I will jump on next month. Yours are perfect. I LOVE dishes too. I think I like the mug and cookie one best. Have a good day!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ah very nice. Like the theme idea.

  35. This is fun! I am looking forward to seeing what the other ladies have posted!

    I will get to do this while at the store today!

  36. I found your blog and this party from BJ at Sweet Nothings. I hope it's OK to invite myself. I absolutely love this idea and it gave me a much needed creative boost.

    I also love the fact that it's a "mingling" party. That kind is my favorite. I'm a mingler by nature.

    Now, as to your photos, I love them. The first one in the suds is my absolute favorite, but they all tell a little dish story.

    Now to mingle and get inspired. Thanks so much for coming up with this great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Call me crazy, but I love that "in the dishpan" shot. A great combination of the beautiful, and the everyday. Thanks for hosting such a great party Vee!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I had to come back and say that everyone is loving your first linky party. And not too many FIRST EDITIONS get as many players as you have. Congrats, dear one.

    Now, I have found many more photos I want to brag about so I (and several others) are hoping you do this again. We love it...wonderful way to share our favorite photos...plus, of course, meeting new bloggers.

    Your sudsy photo brings to mind one of my own and it will be in the next party. In fact, along with others, I am already culling thru photos for the NEXT party. :))

    You had a GRAND IDEA, VEE.

  39. Hi Vee, I am joining your new Linky Party. This is a great idea. I love your photo of the dish in the soapy water. xo

  40. I'm joining your Linky Party. Will have to visit some of the other links after the garden gets attention. :)

  41. I like notecards with dishes and teacups too! Very nice, Vee!

  42. Hi Vee,
    Oh what fun..After work today I will see what photo's I can find. I am not a great picture taker so its going to be hard to find some, but I will try..
    Big, Big hugs, Elizabeth

  43. Hi Vee,

    Just popped back to say thank you. As I was clicking away visiting people, I met so many new faces.

    Thank you for introducing me to some new lovely blogs. Thank you for hosting so much fun.

  44. Hi Vee - these are all gorgeous. I am a 'dishaholic' and proud of it. Must go and find 4 pics I love. Love the tea-cup one so much. Deb (Ontario, Canada)

  45. I love those! I especially love the coffee cup and cookies! Makes me think of friends and time to share my heart! Thanks for hosting this party, it is fun to see what others have chosen!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I found out about your party through Deanna's blog and decided to join in on the fun.

    I really like all of your pics, but I think the teacups one is my favorite.

    Thank you for hosting such a fun party. :o)

  47. Hi Vee, This was a great idea...I especially like the shot of the dish is the sink...it is just so zen.

  48. Awesome! I have Friendly Village China that I've never taken any pictures of...I'm going to now, though! Nice to meet you...:)JP

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ok. My favorite is the teacups...because of the beautiful color. I remember that photo.
    I also love the dish in the dishwater. I prefer to wash my older dishes by hand, because it gives me more opportunity to handle and look at them. A simple pleasure, indeed.
    Thanks for hosting!

  50. Hi Vee,

    Nice to meet you -- this is a great idea for a linky party. :)

    I love all your pictures because I'm a bit of a dishaholic. Your teacups are absolutely gorgeous; what a wonderful photo!!

    Thanks for hosting and have a great day!

  51. This is such a great idea Vee - i like your idea of choosing a theme. It took me much longer than I anticipated to do this but next time I'll be ready. Thanks for hosting! It will be enjoyable to see the other choices that have been made!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Such a great idea, and love your photo's. They're all interesting, but as others have said the "suds" is my favorite.

    I'm new here, but will put your link on my blog so I can keep up with you! :)

  65. I think this idea of a party has been a smashing success. And people took you seriously about the visits. Comments broke a record on my blog! It's been such fun to see everyone's photos! Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'm back just to tell you that of all the parties I have attended, I have never seen one with so many folks willing to mingle and encourage. This is just wonderful. I've seen so many shots that actually inspire me, too.

    I thought I had visited just about all of them, but today I see a whole new crop. Of course, they are switched around from yesterday so this blond is having a time finding the ones I haven't seen yet. ACK.

    Thanks again for welcoming me even though mine wasn't exactly what you had in mind.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh, Vee, I love this party, but I missed it! Let's definitely do it again!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Well darn I missed a fun party! My husband is off this week and I've hardly been home or online.

    I'll mark my calendar for the next one!

    ReplyDelete
  69. What a fun party! I am joining in on the next one!!

  70. Dear Vee...working my way though the list and commenting ~ (I'm up to #37!)~ a favor, please ~
    could you tell me ~ do you get that word verification thing when you post on my blog? I can't find the setting for that under "comments", oddly enough...
    Thank you!
