I don’t really have a theme for my note cards this month.

I looked back through the photos I’ve posted in the past month and chose some favorites.

And for all of my faithful followers, I included the Black Swan.

I’ve gotten some of the sweetest comments on this set of photos HERE. I was surprised at how many had never seen a black swan. Thanks for your compliments and for always being so sweet!

I like them all- but the collage of flowers is my favorite- xo Diana

Love your photos always, Diane, no theme necessary! I'll see you later at Vee's. xo

The swan is a beauty -- I've never seen a black one! I like the Summer Reading photo -- I especially like that you included an old bell from the teacher's desk!!

Simply Shelley said...

Those are all very good choices,I'll let you guess which are my favorite :) Blessings dear friend

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/From Harvest To Table said...

Your photos are all lovely and I especially love the one of the black swan.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I like them all, but if I had to choose it would be flowers...always flowers. I just love them! The black swan comes in at a close second, tho. Have a great day!

ImSoVintage said...

Some very pretty choices, sweet friend. xo Laura

Linda said...

So lovely! I have seen a few swans in nature parks here in the Montreal area, but they have been white ones.

GardenOfDaisies said...

Your black swan photo is pretty spectacular! The water glistens like spilled sequins.

Karen and Gerard said...

Summer reading is my favorite. This is only Tuesday, I have another day to do this, right?

Vee said...

Oh that swan makes me swoon... ; D. This photo was also the impetus for my experimenting with my note cards this month so I thank you!

Marivel said...

I like the black swan card !
XOXO

Pamela Gordon said...

A beautiful selection Diane. The mosaic is very pretty. The white figurine of the girl reading looks very similar to a vintage one that I have. It's made of bisque and painted with a green dress etc. It was my grandmother's so is probably about 70 or more years old. (She's been dead for 45 years)

Blackberry Lane said...

Love all your photos but the prim doll in the first one is my fav!

Lavender Cottage said...

A nice varied collection this month Diane. I'm glad you included the black swan again, as much as the white ones are regal looking, the black is mesmerizing.

Maryann said...

I think the first one is my favorite but I like them all

Debbie said...

Love them all, but that swan is incredible. Count me in as one who has never seen one. I've only seen a white one a few times, actually.

Hi Diane,

Boy, it's hard to choose a favorite among these. The black swan is truly breathtaking! I knew they existed, but I don't think I've ever seen one. I'd never seen white ones until we went to England. I also love the last pic/mosaic because of the sweet bunny and the gorgeous pink flowers. Four great note cards, Diane!! I hope you have a wonderful week.

Donna said...

Haha, Marty appreciates you including him in the collage! I best some kids would love to get note cards of the first two photos. Just darling.

cucki said...

Aww sweet..I love the doll so much ..

Little Susie Home Maker said...

It is hard to pick a favorite. I think I will go with the first one. Too cute!!
Blessings,

Introverted Art said...

the little doll is so cute!

Happy@Home said...

I think it's a tie between 1 and 2. Although I like them all and admit to being one who has never seen a black swan.

ellen b said...

Wonderful notecard choices that take me away...
Blessings.

bj said...

Great photos...and I love that black swan. :)

Jeanne said...

The dolls and old books bring such a cozy feeling. The black swan is just one of those photos that defies expletive.
Very nice!

Mrs.Rabe said...

Gorgeous swan!

Very nice photos!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

WOW, not only have I never SEEN a black swan, I never even HEARD of one....I thought where I heard it was just a myth, not an actual real thing.

That card is definately my favorite, it is so unique and awesome.

Ginger Zuck said...

Hey Diane, all your notecard photos are wonderful, but the black swan one is awesome. So unique. I saw it over at RJ's, Art @ Home and was so impressed. Hope all is well with you and the hubby. :D Hugs

Lorrie said...

The black swan gets my vote. I've never seen such a bird. Your photo makes it look so mysterious and beautiful.

Lovely photos! I'm especially drawn to the ones of books! -- and love that dolly in the first one!

The textured look of the dolly is very nice. But my favorite is the swan picture, the more I look at it , the more I wish it were my picture. LOL. xoxo,Susie

Maybe not having a theme is a good idea.........you were able to feature favorites of YOURS that are special to you. Perfect!

Love the old children's books. I think I had one of those as a kid!!!!

Hugs

They are all lovely and I do love that black swan, but I have a special fondness in my heart for Raggedy Anne's so I really like that photo. Also love old school Readers and books - do I see a couple of old Nancy Drews there? Great photos!!
