Beauty at Home - January's Note Card Party

It's time again for Vee's monthly Note Card Party!

We take 4 photos that have already been posted on our blogs that could make lovely note cards.
So let's get started before you dash over to Vee's and link up!

I'm always looking at details.  Little things that fill me with wonder and gratitude.  As I take a look around me every day, I see beauty and blessing.  Even on difficult days.


A welcoming entry to our back porch speaks to me.  The intricate beauty of each beautifully shaded flower petal, the shape and veining of each leaf, the colors.


The patina of 100+ year old wood.  An unexpected trailing vine from upstairs.  I'm delighted!


Day lilies against white railing.  Aaaahh....just the effect I was going for!


White.  Elegant, simple, beautiful, serene.
Old found bottles.
I just love me some flowers in little old bottles!

Wishing every single one of you a wonderful week!
Carol

I, too, have a love of old jars and bottles. There is so much you can do with them. The flowers look lovely them.
blessings to you.

How fun!! I love your daylilies, the porch, and of course I'm totally smitten for old bottles of Queen Anne's Lace!!

Flowers in January...always a delight. Yours are especially dear and I like the way you arrange your flowers and plants and the way you have plants that trail from the upstairs porch... Lots of places for sweet plantings in your world. Great photos!!
