If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do...
The next best thing to saving time in a bottle is to take a photo. Photos usually bring back sweet memories.
~johnny jump-ups in a vintage perfume bottle~
~daisies and johnny jump-ups in a honey jar~
~spider lilies in vintage medicine bottles~
~drift roses in vintage canning jars~
With the exception of the first, which takes one back to June 30, 2011, all my photos are recent additions. I really enjoy re-tweaking my photos in one of the many photo edit programs. Eventually they'll become mud, I suppose. I added two frames in PhotoScape: Cali 7 and Note 3.
Looking forward to all the creativity I know that I'll find today! ♥I am very fond of my happy little group of Note Card Peeps.♥
A 'Note card Peep' checking in...and linking up! I love the frames of your photos...very pretty effect! And jars are so perfect for a flower grouping. I imagine the blueberry honey must be out of this world! I always liked sourwood honey and clover honey. Thanks for the fun party! Sweet honey hugs!ReplyDelete
I love your flower bouquets and the variety of 'vases' for them. They are sweet and perfect for notecards. I hope you're having a great week so far. I think we're going to get thunder showers soon. Hot and humid!! Hugs. PamReplyDelete
All are beautiful,Vee, I especially like the idea of johnny jump-ups in the perfume bottle. Thanks for hosting!ReplyDelete
We were both thinking music this month! Love your pretty jars with flowers. Perfect for note cards.ReplyDelete
Flowers in a bottle. Simple beauty. Love them all.ReplyDelete
As usual, your photos are charming, Vee. How I love these simple jars and bottles holding sweet blooms! Thanks for hosting.ReplyDelete
love all the little bottles and lovely blooms. i find myself looking at bottles differently every time i see them used with blooms -- danger in the shopping aisles! ;)ReplyDelete
thanks for hosting!
Those are lovely, sweet photos. I love all bottles-especially little ones. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week-xo DianaReplyDelete
I adore your pretty bottles & blooms! I'll be here tomorrow linking up with my note cards. See you then!ReplyDelete
The whole flock here is peeping in, thanks Vee, for hosting. Love your photos and your header, I could do a box of note cards from your headers!! xoReplyDelete
Your little bouquets are sweetly charming, Vee. I love the line-up on your windowsill and all the different variety of bottles you've chosen. Beautiful editing, too. :)ReplyDelete
As one of your NC peeps, I love the fact that I can do colour pallets now, thank you. Bottles are nice to put collected flowers in and I really like the roses on the window sill. I thought you might have used it for "water" in our last personal photo challenge.ReplyDelete
Thanks for hosting.
Beautiful. I love those curly Spider Lilies best. Thanks for hosting! I will link up in the morning.ReplyDelete
Your photos are charming! Little flower nosegays in glass bottles are so endearing.ReplyDelete
I haven't put out little bottle vases like that in ages and ages. I don't even know what happened to the ones I had! They were either sold in the garage sales before our downsizing move, or else they are packed away in a couple of boxes that still remain in the attic. Miz Vee, now you've flung a craving on me!
Very pretty note cards Vee.ReplyDelete
I would add them to my collection to send to friends - I always love the smiling faces of johnny jump ups - they lift my spirits!
I'm loving your latest header too - looking through your kitchen window!
I get my new laptop tomorrow - YIPPEE!!! so I might be able to join you too!
I always look forward to Note Card party day!
Fantastic, Shane! A gal needs her computer!!Delete
I love all the flowers in your little bottles, Vee. They make lovely note cards.ReplyDelete
I will get back to blogging one of these days and hope to join you next month.
I'll start gathering and link up manana...ReplyDelete
Love your flowers in the bottles!
Hi Vee, Catching up on your posts, and I do love your bottle theme in your note cards. I'm also impressed at how clear your vintage medicine bottles are. Any that I find have a sort of fog on them unable to be scrubbed away! Love your previous post, and so sorry about your blogging friend. I have had several blogging "friends" sort of disappear not to be heard from again. I always wonder ..ReplyDelete
Hi Vee.....looked through the beautiful cards so far. Probably won't join in this time....but hopeful for next!ReplyDelete
I love the bottles and the flowers - and the way you made them into ovals.ReplyDelete
Haven't seen or heard of a Johnny Jump Up for ages. Loved them when I was a little girl. This has been a great summer for flowers. You know I like little bottles, especially blue ones. So glad to be one of the regular "peeps." Thanks for hosting.ReplyDelete
WOW- those are absolutely gorgeous, Vee!ReplyDelete
Thanks for hosting one of my all-time favvie fav pinky parties.
I love all of your sweet bottle and jar filled arrangements Vee! I just linked up. Better late than never!ReplyDelete
Vee, I adore the simplicity of flowers in a little glass bottle/vase! It's one of favorite "little" treasures. Yours definitely bring a smile to my face this evening. Thanks for hosting the very best party!ReplyDelete
I love your flowers in the antique jars. I use jars as vases all the time!ReplyDelete
I hope you don't get tired of my Scotland photos! That is what I used for my cards this month.
Beautiful jars and flowers for your note cards Vee! One day I'm going to try to join this party!!!ReplyDelete
Such a creative idea, Vee.ReplyDelete
I like your added photoscape.
What lovely flowers and vases! I especially love the one with the Maine blueberry honey jar.ReplyDelete
Love your flowers and pretty jars! thanks for hosting the party, I look forward to having a look at everyone's note cards. Think I will go pour myself a cuppa tea :)ReplyDelete
This is my first time at your party -- thank you for hosting. What a fun idea! It's late now, but tomorrow I'll be back to visit other linkers and see what they've chosen to share.ReplyDelete
I love what you did to your pics -- I have ZERO skills in things like that!
I finally made it to the party...something I've been wanting to do for a long time. Thank you for hosting!ReplyDelete
What pretty little vases of flowers. I know you enjoy have sweet little bouquets around your home.ReplyDelete
I'm so bummed that I forgot Notecard day. With school and first week of sports starting this week I totally let it slip my mind!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
Whew. Finally got mine up on the blog and ready for the party. (Have I ever told you that this party is my favorite one? It kind of reminds me of one that we used to have called "Simple Pleasures". I enjoy hopping from link to link so much. I make it a game and try to pick a favorite of the four.)ReplyDelete
Anyway, I loved yours this month. My favorite of all is the one in the blueberry honey jar. That's just perfect! I can see that tucked into a basket full of Maine goodies.
I laughed about them turning to mud. Believe it or not, I just discovered pic monkey about a month ago. I tried to edit one of mine so it would be brighter (The one with the flaming moss.) I kept making it worse, I think. I still wanted to include it because I like it.
Thanks for this wonderful party idea. I love it!
I love your bottle vases... Very pretty! I've been looking forward to this 'party' all month long. Thank you for having it. :)ReplyDelete
I love your new header Vee..and I am going to try to learn how to make postcards and be back later...LOLReplyDelete
What happy photos in this new collection of note cards! They're charming and dainty and so summery!ReplyDelete
On my way to visit...still catching up after our couple of days away...
It's still Wednesday so I'm linking up! Thanks for hosting, Vee!ReplyDelete
You are so creative and these are so beautiful! Those would be beautiful Note Cards.ReplyDelete
you are SO creative! i loved the maine blueberry honey jar.ReplyDelete
wouldn't pooh have loved that?
I FINALLY had a chance to join in again, Vee! So happy!ReplyDelete
I love your use of bottle as vases. I ahd a wonderful collection of the same in Brooklyn, but had to discard them all when we moved as we had too much stuff to pack. I will have to re-grow my collection. I did save a couple of blue Bell jars ;)
Hi Vee, I FINALLY joined your notecard party! I have Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti to thank!!! If it wasn't for her I wouldn't have remembered!!!ReplyDelete
I took some photos in Maine this week and put them in collages and I think they would make lovely notecards!
Have a great week!
Oh wow, I love, love, love, your bottles. Blueberry honey, how is that? It sounds yummy!ReplyDelete
Time in a bottle...I do appreciate that theme ...it's perfect for the last days of summer. Thank you again for hosting and inspiring all of us.ReplyDelete
The first one is my favorite. I use the same flowers in tiny bottles and posy vases and love how they look. I most often use candle holders with these. I have a set of 4 and they look lovely on my kitchen window sill over my sink. :>)ReplyDelete
I love using bottles for flowers - it makes them go further and so delicate.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your night - the HHH's are back:(
Your photos are beautiful! Love all your pretty bottles of flowers. I remember Jim Croce.....Love that song. Found you through Lavender Dreams.ReplyDelete
Love the bottles...and the notecard pic's too!ReplyDelete
Phew! I've made it.ReplyDelete
That was kind of you to tell me yesterday's post 'would do'.
but I was very keen to try out my new laptop!!!
It took me ages to find my way around my blog photos as I now have Windows 8 and it's quite different. Never mind I'll get used to it soon I guess!
There's such a lovely group of cards from everyone this month Vee.
Thanks for inviting us all to the party. Its a terrific way to meet new people. Your pics are lovely!ReplyDelete
So glad to have found you. I love the note card share, and would like to start joining in the fun!ReplyDelete
Each photo is captivating, Vee. Love each one. Hugs!ReplyDelete
