Notecard Party with Vee

I’m joining the notecard party with a set of notecards…Florida style!

I didn’t have to look far to find several photos that I think would be great for Florida Notecards.

The weather here is fabulous!

I walked over to the pool today and sat in the sun for a few minutes. I had a full day of sewing and that’s how I took a break!

I didn’t alter these photos in any way! (but that would be fun to do sometime, too…when I FIND some time!)

I’m joining Vee at a Haven for Vee!

Has your weather been nice?

Warm hugs from Florida!

LOL, glad to see you hop into the party! I especially love the last photo, with the light shining off of the foamy surf line!

I just can't wait for summer again. These photos are lovely and I especially love the one with the flock of birds. Beautiful. Deb

I love your Florida photos Diane. Makes me want to rush down south and get my feet in the sand!

Angie Berry said...

Gorgeous pictures! How fortunate you are to live there, I'm envious, hehe!

Lilybets said...

Hi Diane, yes it is, now it looks spring, a warm spring and on April we will go beach.People from Germany often do a bath..I'm cold !!!I wait for July !!!

Kim K. said...

Your photos are just lovely. We've had unseasonably warm weather in MI. In the 80s...completely breaking all weather records. Amazing!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I can hear the waves! Enjoy:@)

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Nice warm shots- I can almost hear the birds and the waves crashing on the beach.

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

A lovely selection, I have been considering having some of my photos made into note cards.

Debby said...

Florida is like Colorado.....every picture looks like a post card with out any tweeking.

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

They are all so very beautiful, makes me long for the beach.

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

These are so beautiful they don't even need altering! Really makes me long for the beach!
Great photography!

Brenda @ It's A Beautiful Life said...

Oh I like your Florida-style notecards. A lovely collection.

Like Muddy Boot Dream says, it makes me long for the beach, the ocean.

Happy@Home said...

Who wouldn't like to receive a Florida themed notecard, especially in the dead of winter.
Your photos are all beautiful and now I feel like taking a walk on the beach.

Carol said...

Diane,
Wonderful pictures for cards! A foretaste of summer for us northerners!

Angela said...

That is a great set of cards. I especially love the one with the pelicans flying overhead.

Faye Henry said...

Lovely cards.. I love the water especially.. Our daughter just returned from a vacation in your beautiful state...
God bless..

Gina said...

The sky is so blue and beautiful! My favorite is the last one of the waves on the beach. I can almost feel a salty breeze!

Blessings

Debbiedoo's said...

They are all beautiful Diane! Picture perfect postcard to me.

sandy said...

Beautiful photos! It looks inviting. We'll be heading for Panama City Beach in a week so I'm looking forward to that sun and surf!

Diane Writes said...

Hello name mate! The last picture is soooo priceless. I love it. I almost want to dip in my feet for that vacation.

Sheila said...

my favorite card is the birds taking flight over the shoreline. It must be wonderful to live where the weather is warm! Here I sew most days and a break would be to get out for a walk after the snow and ice melt....Enjoy your sunny days!

Carol @ Always Thyme to Cook said...

So pretty, they'd make beautiful cards! They'd be beautiful in a frame as well!

Ali said...

Well we most definitely aren't enjoying the kind of Spring you are. British Spring tends to be very fickle.

That photo of the sailboat is heaven! If I can ever manage it, I want us to live within easy walking distance of the ocean. Life is so much laidback and peaceful near the water, don't you think.

Ali

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Beautiful ocean... I miss it. Lovely! It's been quite warm here too.

Shirley said...

How lovely these notecards (photos) are!! What a gorgeous place! It's always so kind of you to visit..wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead and yes, happy spring to you too!

black eyed susans kitchen said...

The photo of the surf is just perfect. It would make a beautiful post card...Wish you were here! The sailboat is so clear and also would make a perfect note card....love those pictures!! Have a great weekend.

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Beautiful photos, Diane!!! Our weather is nice and sunny today but we've gotten about 4" of rain the last 2 days....and it's headed your way!!! Enjoy!!!

ImSoVintage said...

These are all so beautiful I miss living at the beach :(

DaCraftyLady Debb said...

Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...

Beautiful photos of I am sure a wonderful vacation! I love the ocean ... so healing!

Sarah (Nikki) said...

Awesome pics. My face is that bird. I just love birds in general

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

You take such beautiful photos! I could almost smell the ocean :) You've probably heard about our record-breaking warmth in the Midwest -- today is the first in 8 that we haven't broken a record. It's raining but still a good 10 degrees above normal!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh those photos are beautiful!! They would make awesome Florida postcards. The weather here in Tennessee has been above average and gorgeous the past few days.

Anne said...

Denise at Forest Manor said...

Hi, your photos are great! Florida is definitely a beautiful state! I saw that your location is also the N.C. mountains. We're in North Carolina, too. I also noticed you like Jan Karon. I did a two-part post about Mitford, North Carolina, which is really based on the town of Blowing Rock.

Thank you for leaving a comment on my "Fences" post and have a great weekend!

Denise

Hi Diane, yes we had record warmth today. 73 degrees, and looking like the same tomorrow. I am loving it! I spent 6 hrs. in the garden. A bit tired, but it rejuvenates my soul. Love your pics. Picture perfect postcards! I need to join this party, sound like a fun one! Enjoy that Fl. sunshine!
Hugs,

I do have to say they look mighty pretty in their natural state.

These pictures make me miss Florida! I so hope we get to go there again soon! Thanks for sharing them with us, Diane. Have a lovely weekend :)
