February Note Card Party with Vee

Sometimes it's the simple things in our 
lives that bring us the biggest joy.

My theme for this note card party is
comfort and happy things.

In this case
a tiny white pitcher brought to me 
by a candle customer.
She wanted it filled.
It came out so cute.
It is not intrusive.
It is delicate.
Just a little feminine touch.

The white kitty was a gift from a neighbor
lady when I was just a girl.
Somehow it has survived 
nine moves.
This neighbor has been gone for 
quite some time but the lessons about 
art learned in her home have stayed with me.
The time she took out of her day for two 
ragamuffin preacher's kids from down the road
have never ceased to be appreciated.

Here we have the simplicity of the white serving platter
and the delicious comfort of vanilla yogurt drizzled with honey.
This totally made me happy.

This came from a post called

Even though this is one of my creations it is one of my favorites.
It speaks to upcoming Spring while having the deep brown 
base to allow us to acknowledge that we have not yet 
crossed over to that reality yet.

I look forward every year to the dogwood blooms
on the tree just outside our window.

I will enjoy this piece in my living room until someone 
purchases it from my Etsy shop.
And then....perhaps I shall make another?

These are actually soy wax melters
but don't they look like 
old fashioned

My friend the soapmaker got excited when I told
him that we could have sold these several times
at one of my shows
if they had been soaps.

Takes one back to grandma's house.
The powder room seemed to 
always have some kind of shaped soaps.

So, if you pay attention you will have learned
much about me in this post.
I have shared the things that I find 
to be beautiful and that represent or 
bring happiness into my life. the same time
I would totally make
note cards out of these photos.

Taking part in Vee's February Note Card Party.
A Haven for Vee

I hope you'll stop by and check out 
the different entries.
If you are visiting from the party, 
I do hope you'll stop in again.

Love the all, but my favorite is the pitcher. Excellent piece for a feminine touch.

Becky, I love the glimpses of joy you have shared here! Yes, it is often the simple pleasures that make the heart sing.

I had to smile at your comment about the shaped soaps. So true! :D

These are really lovely photos for note cards. I love the one of the berries on the waffles. Nice choices. Pamela

Cheryl @ TFD said...

These are all lovely choices for note cards. I adore the little white pitcher in the first one and the white platter with yummy looking food in the second one! The candles do indeed look like soaps, so pretty.

Lavender Cottage said...

I like the things you chose for your note cards. And I do remember scented soaps with writing or imprints on them from so long ago.

Theresa said...

I love all of your pretty card pictures! I am totally in love with the soap one:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Tamara Scott said...

There is such a sweet feel to the pictures. Leaves me craving warm breakfast foods and smelling roses:)

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

All fun pics! I remember the little rose soaps in Grandmom's bathroom... Don't think we were allowed to use them though:@)

Vee said...

It does say a lot about you...the creativity and the photographer's eye notwithstanding. Lovely all and you know which one my eye went to immediately. Let's just say that I've never eaten a candle, though there are some of yours that smell good enough to eat!

Linda Pruitt said...

I had never heard of this party--it's awesome! I think I will see what others are doing with it! Love your pics!

Peasley Pottery said...

Such a lovely blogsite to visit, especially after a stressful day! It was visual aroma therapy, I could imagine the smells with each photo!

Vickie said...

Love the little pitcher, Becky - I think that's my favorite! I missed the party this month... :(

Jodi-Marie said...

Loved your note cards. The candle in the white pitcher is so charming.

Kati said...

Pretty photos! I love the candle with the dogwood blossoms. I can just smell the lovely scents coming from it. I also love the last one. The light pink ribbon adds just the right touch.

Snap said...

What a lovely post! Everything is so charming and cozy. Wonderful!

You'll have to tell us about note card parties. They sound like fun.......

Donna said...

These are lovely. And after seeing your second image, I decided that I want to eat breakfast at your place, LOL!

Loretta said...

As always, great pictures. The soy wax flowers do remind me of guest soaps. They are very cute!
