An October Note Card party


Today is Vee's October Note Card party.  Vee asks that we select four images from previous posts that we think might make nice note cards.

The photo above was taken in my backyard when the reds were vibrant.  This year we don't have as many reds, but the yellows are equally as nice.


I write about Concord, Massachusetts quite a bit on my blog.  This photo was taken late in the afternoon when the shadows danced around the beautiful Fall colors.


This photo was taken in Vermont.  My mom and I took a ride down a country road on a misty morning.  The deep shades of reds and rust really played nicely against the green mountains.

Sigh, Love Letters, this song brings back such nice memories.  Once upon a time we wrote love letters and now today we send note cards.  Either way what counts is that we send our love.

Bev from How Sweet The Sound is hosting a special Autumn celebration on Pink Saturday.  Stop by and enjoy Fall at it's best.


And finally this painting was done last Fall in Sandwich, Massachusetts.  It holds my sentiments for today.

Love your painting best of all. Sweet wishes for a wonderful day. Your photos are always beautiful and your words are, too.

Glad that there was just a little window rattling. I thought a truck hit the house and John thought that the furnace was going to blow up. Good thing it didn't last long or I would have truly been unsettled.
