Share Your Cup Thursday #9

Welcome everyone, it’s time for another Share Your Cup.

It amazes me how quickly the weeks fly by. 

This week it has been all about the garden.  I have been very busy planting annuals.  Each day greets me with a new bloom.

Hubby and I have been working on a project that I can’t wait to share with you!

As usual I enjoyed each and every post that was shared last week.  It’s always hard to narrow the features to just a few.

With gardening on my mind I wanted to show you some of the beautiful blooms from Shannon at Cozy Home Scenes gorgeous garden.

How welcoming is Poppy’s French pillow and butterfly tag placed so beautifully in her garden?  Visit her at With a Dash of Color

I love this quilt of “my favorite things” created by Cherise from Sewing Along.  Hop over to see her other darling blocks.

Next, you need to go visit Heather from New House New Home New Life  and see how she turned these

Into this. She even gives you a step by step tutorial.

Now last of all, look at this darling apron made from denim jeans shared by Dru from The Farmers Daughter.  It is so darn cute and she also gives a great tutorial.

(Just a bit of advice to you new bloggers.  Try and watermark your photos.  I didn’t do it for a long time and when I found out how easy it was I wondered why.  I’d hate for someone else to take credit for your great ideas.)

If you were featured, please grab my button!

Before I turn the party over to you I have to show you what a sweet bloggy friend brought by last night.  This darling teacup garden and some herbal teas.  She is ‘paying it forward’.  I will be doing the same.  More info to come later.

The cup is filled with wonderful herbs and I love that color of Petunia!

Thank you Nancy from At Nann's Table, I love it!

Now it’s your turn.  Can’t wait to see what filled your cup this week!

a few party rules:

1.  I would love for you to be a follower of Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson

2. Link up a particular post and not your entire blog.

3. Please have a link back to this post. That way others will know where the party is. Feel free to grab my button on the sidebar if you’d like.  

4. Please find time to visit at least a few other participants. Each week I discover new wonderful blogs.

How sweet you are to feature my apron. I was thrifting this morning and bought some vintage to make more aprons. Do I need an Etsy shop?
