Father’s Day Card, Caymus, and Inchies

It’s been some time since my last post, I’m physically healthy but I’m kind of an emotional mess! Virginia is opening up slowly after 3 months of quarantine, but have announced that school in the Fall will still be part virtual. This will be my my daughter Sarah’s senior year, so I just want the world to be OK by then. Enough of that. I’ve discovered Junk Journal’s! I started on one for the plants I planted this spring and have really enjoyed finally using embellishments that I’ve been saving for years. I’ll share some pictures of this project soon.

My drink to share with the Tuesday group is a bottle of Caymus, which turns out to be the best red wine I’ve ever had. My husband broke out the “good stuff” to celebrate with friends that came to visit whom we haven’t seen in over a year.

Here is the Father’s day card I made for hubby who enjoys golfing:

And two inchies for Every Inchie Monday of a butterfly and one for Love:

I’ll also share a picture of a baby osprey that I found on my walk who must have been learning to fly:

A perfect gardenia bloom:

A sweet buuny

and a baby grasshopper my daughter found:

Blessings and well wishes for your week ahead!

  1. Wine is always a good choice of beverage! When I look at my food photos, it’s what I usually see — but today it’s coffee!

    be well… mae at maefood.blogspot.com


  2. I’m not much familiar with wines and had never heard of Caymus. The baby bird makes a sweet picture 🙂 I don’t see those here. I’m enjoying looking at your lovely nature photos. Happy T Tuesday!


  3. Sorry you are feeling down, life is difficult just now. Glad you enjoyed some good wine. The photos are fantastic, love the baby osprey. Have a great week and happy T Day, hugs, Valerie


  4. Here it´s lock down, open up, lock down…
    Luckily Braunschweig is opening up and no lock down expected. Fingers crossed we get out of this crazy soon.
    The baby osprey is cute, as is the bunny – a happy T-day to you!


  5. I sure can empathize, Karen. We’ve been in lockdown for three months, but the peak for COVID is just starting here. So I think we’ll be in lockdown for at least two more months. I understand about your daughter’s senior year too. I hope the virtual classes will just be a few.

    I had to look up Caymus wine. We can’t get California wines here in Mexico at reasonable prices. I’m glad you enjoyed that special bottle.

    Your Father’s Day card is very special. I’m impressed by anyone who can do inchies. Loveltyspring photos.

    Happy T-Day! Eileen xx


  6. Lovely artwork and photos. I’m with you: I want things to get back to normal. I’m sorry to hear your daughter’s senior year will be partially virtual. Ugh. Happy T-Day!


  7. Hope that your daughter’s senior year isn’t disrupted too much and that you are feeling better with everything that’s going on soon 😊. The virus seems to have disrupted many things and it’s been a sad time as some of my friends mothers have died from the virus during lockdown, my heart goes out to them! Your Father’s Day card is fabulous with the golfing theme and I’m loving those inchies, I’m always amazed with the amount of detail that you create on such a small piece of art 😀. Wishing you a wonderful week and a Happy T Day! Take care! Hugs Jo x

  8. I really enjoy a nice glass of wine.
    Oh my I was hoping schools would be open by the fall-I think in Missouri most will be.
    Loved your father’s day card, and enjoyed your walk photos-too cute the tiny grasshopper and the baby aspre
    Happy T wishes Kathy

  9. My apologies for visiting so late. My internet went out last night, then came back on again, only to go out a second time. It often happens when it rains, but it’s been so dry here, I didn’t realize it would be a problem.

    Oh Karen, I can empathize. I’ve not been off my property since March 15, so I know how days and nights can blend together. You at least have family to talk to. My cats don’t talk to me. They just beg for food and clean sandboxes (grin). I feel for your daughter and her senior year in school. It’s probably the most important year of her life to date. I hope we hear how she is doing once school starts this autumn.

    Loved that Father’s Day card. I adore argyle for the golf socks, and that was a fabulous addition to the card.

    Glad to read you found junk journals. That should be a fun escape for you. And although I’m not a wine (or alcohol) drinker, I enjoyed reading about this wine you and your husband served company. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos of the wildlife and flowers in your yard, your card, and your wine with us for T this Tuesday, dear Karen.

  10. School seems to be up in the air here as well. They are talking about doing virtual here as well. I am not a fan but I would prefer that to some of the other crazy ideas they have such as the kids wearing masks, taking daily temperatures and keeping kids 6 feet apart all the time. I hope that your daughter’s senior year turns out to be a pleasant surprise. Hopefully, things will get better in the world between now and then.
    Your gardenia is beautiful!
    Happy Tea Day,

  11. Here in New Hampshire they have yet to announce what school will be like this fall. I do feel bad for this year’s seniors and I hope it is better for your daughter next year. Love the Father’s day card too. And a nice bottle of wine is always a good thing. Hope it was a happy T day Karen. Or I should say hope it was happy. Hugs-Erika

  12. In Massachusetts, we are opening slowly. Schools are still deciding what/how they will mange. My husband teaches at a college and his school is still teaching classes online. Things seems to change weekly, hopefully by the time school rolls around things will be back to normal. Your inchies are so cute and so is that baby bird and sweet bunny. That gardenia is absolutely gorgeous. Take care and Happy T Day

  13. That is a lovely Father’s Day card. The argyle pattern is very appropriate as in England, the men still wear argyle sweaters when golfing.
    I enjoyed seeing the photos of your walk and the ‘wildlife’ you encountered.
    That wine looks interesting. I had not heard of it, but if it was so good, it is worth remembering.
    Your inchies are amazing. Small but perfectly formed as they say.
    Happy belated T-Day,

    I wish you a very nice Thursday, and send big hugs

  15. Such difficult times, I hope that your daughter can at least get some time in school! I think this virus is going to be around for longer than we would all like! Your card and inches are great and I just know you are going to enjoy junk journalling! How lovely to see that baby Osprey on your walk! Belated Happy T Day! Chrisx

  16. Bless you Karen, I think everyone is struggling in one way or another. We all just want everything back to normal -especially for our children and our children’s children. We just have to be stoical and wait – it WILL pass.
    In the meantime, I had to look up Junk Journals and disappeared off down a rabbit hole! Looks fun but horribly time consuming… Your golfing card is fun and I love the argyle. Gorgeous inchies too and beautiful nature photos.
    Chin up my friend, Vicky x
