Share Your Cup Thursday #16

Hi Everyone and welcome to Share Your Cup.  This is the place you come to share what ever it is that makes you happy.  I want to thank those of you who link up each week and for all you new bloggers.  I am loving getting to know all of you and seeing what you share each week. We had a wonderful 4th of July celebration and I hope all of my American friends did also.

First of all I would like to thank everyone for your concerns and prayers regarding the Quail fire here in Alpine.  The mountain is still burning and they are continuing to drop water on the hot spots to try and keep it away from homes.  Please continue to pray for people and firemen here and other states that are fighting these terrible wild fires.

Secondly I would love to thank Shasta from In The Old Road and Meg from Nutmeg Place for featuring my Great American Past Times  post in their All Star Block Party.  I really appreciate it.  Makes me smile to know that others enjoy what I have to share!

Here are some featured blogs that I would like to share with you from last week.

Look at this faux brick patio created by Debbie from Debbie Dabble.  I would never have believed that it wasn’t real brick.

Verna from Helen and Her Daughters went on a night pickin adventure and boy did she score. Hop over and see what other treasures she brought home.

There were so many wonderful Americana posts this week that it was very difficult to narrow it down, but here are my favorites.

Carolynn from Chenille Cottage shared her wonderful porch decked out in Red, White, and Blue,

Dearest Jann,
You are so kind to feature my blog in your lovely post! I am so very humbled! I'm a bit of a newcomer to blogging and this just blesses my heart!
I am so thankful for the fine firefighters that have contained the fire near your home.
God is so good and I know he heard and answered all our prayers!
Thank you so much for honoring me in this way, my sweet new friend!
Blessings,
Carolynn :)
