Share Your Cup Thursday #45

My oh my how quickly the week does fly!  Ha, ha, I amuse myself so when I throw in a rhyme now and then.  Like my oldest grandson once told me, “Grandma, it doesn’t take much to make you happy”.

Welcome my sweet friends to Share Your Cup.  the link party where you share what ever it is in life that makes you happy.  Like me, it may not take much. lol!

So sorry that I am late posting.  Our contractor showed up at 3:30 with a few questions and just left.

I want to tell you how much I have enjoyed doing my ‘Showing a Little Love’ posts these past two weeks.  I have had some wonderful comments from you sharing how you show love.  And if you are in need of some Valentine inspiration the links I shared featuring some of you with each post were amazing! 

Valentines Day is upon us, and after tomorrow I will no longer be concentrating on showing love.  I hope and pray however that it is something we all do each and every day!

I think by this weeks features you can tell that I am anxious for Spring.

We still have lots of snow on the ground, but yesterday I noticed in a couple of spots where the snow had melted that my Pasque flower and Daffodils had started poking their little heads out.  It always amazes me the strength and beauty of flowers.  How they come back after such a cold Winter and give us their all.

This weeks fab features:

Mary Alice from Chateau Chic shared her wonderful vignette of lavender and green.  Doesn’t it look just like Spring?

Arsty Va Va  made the cutest teacup and Jell-O mold nests.

This next feature isn’t necessarily Spring, but oh I love that robins egg blue!  Couldn’t pass up featuring Dru’s Country Farm Home bath.  I featured part of it a couple weeks ago with the clothesline, but wanted you to see more.  It’s been featured all over blogland this week.  I’m sure you can see why.

Priscillas blog showed us the granny square quilt that she finally finished.  Lots of fun Spring colors in there!

Did you notice I had 6 features instead of 5 this week?  Blame it on Spring fever!

Hi Jann,
Your daffodils sure are early where you live! Maybe in April if we are lucky they start popping through the ground at home. Great features this week! I don't know what happened with Mr. Linky and my picture this week, before I got a chance to choose a picture it went directly to your post. At least it was a Valentine post! Thank you for hosting your lovely party and have a wonderful Valentines Day with family.
