Note Card Party Inspiration



The lovely Vee from A Haven for Vee, hosts a Note Card party each month.  We are asked to share three Note Card Worthy photos that have been on previous posts.

The best part about Vee's celebration is that it makes you look back and find nuggets of inspiration that you might have forgotten.


Like the post I wrote about my favorite shop in Concord, Nesting on Main.  This first photo is of the window boxes that greet you as you enter their shop.  I used this photo to create the note card at the top of this post.





esting on Main welcomes you with enchanting vignettes everywhere in their shop.  I thought that this next photo would be a lovely note card.



This lovely shop has a little bit of Vintage charm with treasures, jewelry, art, original objects, books and ephemera. And never forget to look up...



A perfectly enchanting chandelier note card.  Truth be told, the lovely shopkeepers do such a brilliant job of staging that every corner could be a note card.

Now,  please stop by A Haven for Vee and see all the lovely note card inspiration.

The shop gave you photo ops for charming cards, well done to capture the vignettes.

Sky's the limit on what you can do, Karen. From needle felting now, to fabric designs, note cards and more, you truly live up to your blog name. Love it all. Anita

Karen! Yes, Koralee's book is bright and tempting, but what is even more wonderful are the little quotes and party ideas that she features. I am so glad to have a copy.

I wonder, did you get my email this morning with an attachment of a photo? I really would love to see you try to make a child with needle felting. Penny makes the most adorable birds and mice and I am addicted to collecting such pieces! I would love a little boy doll. Let me know if it is something you would want to attempt! Anita

OH....I am flying back to California for just a few days!

Oh- What beautiful images, Karen. I would love to see those things in real life- xo Diana

Vee said...

Skidded in here feeling a little exasperated and was calmed down immediately first with the quote and then with the charming images. I agree. The best thing about this little party is looking back to see what has already been done and needs a new day to see the light. Thanks so much for participating. (Don't be alarmed if not many find you...or anyone...just now. I don't even know how I managed to get through the secret gate. It must've been that I fell down the rabbit hole. ;D)

I enjoyed stopping by to see - loved the background music. My sister knew Diana Krall's parents and it was lovely to see what you saw while browsing in that store. I would love to have the opportunity to wander along and into amazing little shops like that...maybe one day again. In the meantime thanks for sharing your experience with us.

Every detail is gorgeous and inspiring, but my favorite is the music you are playing for us today. Could listen to it all day.
Not posting at this time, but will continue to visit and enjoy your delightful posts, Karen.
