Happy Father's Day Weekend!

Hi all! How's your week been? I've missed chatting - I've been experiencing a few technical difficulties, hopefully now successfully resolved by my in-house IT team (Mr. H).

Any fun plans for the weekend? I'm heading to the kitchen to whip up a batch of sugar cookies for my Dad:

Martha Stewart

He's a tough guy to buy for -- "I don't need anything" -- with quite the sweet tooth.  So homemade cookies should be a hit.  

Speaking of homemade, a friend commissioned me to paint her husband a Father's Day gift. We all share a love of Sun Valley, so I imagined their girls playing with the family dog while Mt. Baldy looked on...

Hopefully it will make him smile!

What plans do you have to celebrate the dads in your life this weekend?

Have happy one! XO


  1. Your painting is beautiful and what a great idea wish I had thought of that for my husband.

    Enjoy your weekend Jeanne!

  3. I am certain you will be the reason for at least two great fathers having a happy day.
    Happy Friday.

  4. what a great idea for a Father's Day gift! We are taking my Dad to the beach for the weekend.

  5. My Dad is a big rafter so he'll be on the river which makes him happy. Father's Day in Germany was a month ago so I think that gets me off the hook for my husband. We're going to see what our out of town visitors want to do and go from there. :) Those cookies look yummy! I'm sure that will make your Dad very happy. :)

  6. Bonjour Jeanne. Yours is the first post I have read about Father's Day so far. I love that cookie! This year, I am happy to report I will be celebrating with my Dad in Paris. It has not happened in years. So exciting. Too bad my poor husband will be here alone in Seattle that day, but Junior and I have prepared a small surprise for him! :-) Take care.

  7. that Fathers Day card is sooo sweet! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  8. I'm sure your friend's husband will love your charming illustration and your dad his cookies!! Saw the Diane James girls last night who said they had such a lovely time with you and Barbara!!

  9. Hi Stacey! Yes, it was such a delight to get together The Buzz girls. They are just as lovely as I had imagined. Now if I could just get to the NY area to meet all of my blog friends from that part of the world! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! XO

  12. Wondering where you've been, my friend! Were your ears burning last night? You were the subject of a conversation we had with Pretty Pink Tulips and Quintessence and we all love your work! Happy weekend.

  13. I know your dad will love those cookies!!! Grant is starting the day on the links.....then Father's Day party at the club for the evening.
