November Note Cards

It’s time for Vee’s November Note Card Party.

I love Vee’s post for this party…so nice and perfect for this Thanksgiving month. Mine is not so much on that vein but I am thankful nevertheless.

We had a party in November to honor a special English friend who offered up his parents home in Cornwall to Josh, Laura, Dear and me during our trip to England in September of this year. For my note party I’m sharing some of my favorites from our time in Porthtowan, Cornwall, England. First a collage from our Pub Night to say thank you to Gabriel.

  1. Hello Ellen
    Those are beautiful note cards of the Cornish coast – I will show my husband as his forebears came out to New Zealand from Cornwall! We have visited there too!
    The pub collage is so typically English right down to the Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding – is that what you ate?

  2. What a beautiful part of GB Cornwall is. Seeing your beloved walking there reminds me of the photo you took that perfectly framed him within that doorway. Very cool!

    Lovely memories you have of your time there. I know that you look forward to visiting again. How’s A Fine Romance going?

  3. Hi Ellen,
    What a wonderful trip. My dear hubby and I went to Ireland several years ago and I treasure those memories. Your photos are gorgeous and make beautiful note cards. xo

  4. Such great photos of England that would make wonderful note cards! Reminds me of Susan Branch’s book on her travels in that fine country.
    (oh, I see others have mentioned the book, too.)

  5. I’m visiting from Vee’s party. I have really enjoyed your beautiful photos. That must have been a wonderful trip! I’d so love to go to England and see that beautiful country myself. I’ve got Susan’s book A Fine Romance on my wish list for Christmas!

  6. Oh my! You have posted the most breathtaking photos of your time in the Celtic Isles – I am an Anglophile from way back and travel there vicariously through BBC period drama, scads of books, daily teatime, and blog posts like yours!! This is definitely on my list of places to see someday – I love how ancient the land is and the people and traditions. So much history that is so relevant to us today – yet so many don’t get that.
    Ah . . . me . . .
    Joy!

  7. Kind of smiling a bit…You know the Pilgrims bugged out of England for religious freedom and that lead to Thanksgiving….
    I am sure if the Pilgrims were alive today they would be totally OK with this post!

  8. Hello Ellen – and many thanks for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. Yes, I’m from Devon, next county to Cornwall – you may have passed through it on the way – and I loved the cards you show with the beautiful Cornish scenery.

    Glad you joined Vee’s party – it’s a lot of fun.

    Happy week – Mary (in North Carolina)
