Share Your Cup Thursday #8

So happy to have you visit today for Share Your Cup!  I hope that you will link up something that has helped (fill your cup) make you happy this week

Last week was a fun filled one for me.  I was able to go to a quilt retreat at my friend, Dolly’s home.  I will be linking up one post and sharing lots more with you in the next few days.

At last weeks party three people shared their copycat projects.  I was so impressed with all of them that I decided to feature them.

First of all, Lynn from Up Country Olio painted the cutest rug in her upstairs hall.  I love the grey and yellow and the white flooring is fabulous!

Maggie from Little Miss Maggie made a copy cat of some shutters she saw in Pottery Barn.  I like hers better than theirs.  Great job and love the color!

The last copycat was shared with us by Debra from Doll in the Looking Glass  She made a darling crazy quilt.  She was inspired by a picture in a book, Romance with Quilts.  I love all of her embellishments.


Last of all,  I loved the story that Julie Marie from Idyll Hours shared with us about the beautiful flower, bleeding heart.  It is such a touching post.

All such lovely and lively photos and especially cool to me is that rug that will never trip anyone! How cool is that, to paint it on the floor! My sister-in-law in Florida one year painted cobble stone bricks across her cement patio like it was a walk way, another no trip idea! Very cool what we can do with just paint and a surface! Great post again!

Oooh Jann... Merci!... how very sweet of you to feature my post "Lieutenants Heart"... that is such an emotional post for me, as both of my parents are gone now, but are always with me in my heart... it was one of those posts meant for me to write, and I am so flattered that you featured it here on your own beautiful blog... you really do live not too far from me... perhaps we shall meet one day, how exciting that would be!... xoxo Julie Marie PS I did not have a new post to link this week, as I have been celebrating my upcoming birthday all week (actually all month!)... but will join in your fun party next week!... Happy Mothers Day to you!

Doll in the Looking Glass said...
