Sweet Finds and Share Your Cup Thursday #7

 

Woo-Hoo My lucky #7!

Welcome to Share Your Cup Thursday.  This is the place you come to share what ever it is that makes you happy, you know; fills your cup.

Each of us need to take time to fill our own cups.  Only by doing that are we happy and able to help fill others.

I found a couple of sweet finds on Monday that helped fill my cup.  Hubs and I have had two of our grandchildren for a week.  Monday was early out day so after dropping Paityn off at school I went thrifting.

What’s a girl to do?  I really didn’t have enough time to go clear home before time to pick her up again.

Look at these SWEET cherry dishes.  Love, love them!  6 large plates $1.00 ea.  They had 6 small plates at .75 cents each.  I only bought one because on all of the others the cherries in the middle had worn off quite badly.  I thought one would make a cute display plate.

Can’t wait to share these with Rednesday

Out in the yard I found chippy white love for $6.  Talk about cheap love. lol!  Now it’s hanging out in my yard.

Now for last weeks features.  Gotta say you bloggers make it awfully hard to narrow it down to just a few.  I decided to give myself a theme.  That makes it a bit easier on the brain.

You know from thinking, “I’ll feature this one, and then no, this one, or maybe this one.  You get the jiff.

I won’t do this every week, but gotta keep you people guessing.  The theme is dishes.

Look at this clever chicken feeder plate rack shared by Chris from Perfectly Printed

Sweet Bee Cottage showed us her beautiful collection of Rose Chintz dishes.

Aren’t these sweet cabbage and pinks a delight for the eyes? Life and Linda sets a pretty table wouldn’t you agree?

Nancy from At Nann's Table throws a mean luncheon regularly for her neighbors birthdays. Although her table is gorgeous.  It’s her food and favors that caught my eye. Look at that salad.

I have to tell you that Nancy lives just up the road from me.  I really didn’t know her, but now we are blogging buddies.  Isn’t it such a small world?  Yup, that means that in July I get to be treated like a queen at one of her fab parties

Okay, now I’m cheating just a bit.  I could not pass up featuring what was my favorite post.

Mary Alice from Chateau Chic showed us her porch décor.  I could not stop drooling.  Seriously, I love and collect watering cans also.  She had so much eye candy to share.

Love your cherry dishes. They remind me of the juice glasses that my Grandmother used to serve us grandchildren. The cherries always looked so cherry!

Thanks for hosting! Debra

I'm late but finally got my project finished. After seeing such pretty dishes on your blog, I almost hate linking up something that involves a hammer and plates, haha.
