Share Your Cup Thursday #56

Oh my time certainly does fly!  Hard to believe that May has arrived.  Where oh where did April go?

Welcome to Share Your Cup.  I hope that the month of May is full of frolic and fun.  This time of year my mind wanders to thoughts of winding the Maypole and making May baskets.

This morning my friend since childhood sent me a text, “Happy May Day it’s snowing”  I responded with, “ Can you believe it?  Happy May Day to u!  Wish we had a Maypole to wind”

Yup, that’s right; it’s snowing.  Ever so lightly, but still snow.  If I didn’t know better I would think it was popcorn falling from the trees.

Let’s see what caught my eye from last week:

*Just a note:  I hope this doesn’t sound cruel, but some of my featured pics were eliminated simply because I could not find the link back.  The purpose of the back link to a party is to get more participants.  I have found many parties that way.  If I have a hard time finding it then I’m sorry, but it will not be featured.  I really appreciate those who put it at the end of their post so that it is easily found.

Nancy from Two Cottages and Tea shared her pink loveliness.  One of my favorites was her tea cup chandelier.

Debra from Homespun shared her beautiful hand appliqued and quilted table runner.

Chel from Sweetbriar Dreams got a new camera and took some amazing pictures of Spring beauty.

Carol’s alphabet collection is awe inspiring.  I always love seeing them in her vignettes.  Bet ya can’t guess which letter I love the most. lol!  Visit her at Art and Sand.

Tanya from 1208 shared this fun grain sack dresser.

Thanks so much for sharing the things that make you happy.

A few rules and then let the fun begin!

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. Please limit your links to no more than three.
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. Only those with a link back will be featured.
4. Please find time to visit at least two other participants. It’s a great way to find new friends.

After you link up please come back and leave a comment. They help to fill my cup

Debra @ Homespun said...

oh my, snow :( I just saw another blogger mention in her comments this morning that she was expecting snow as well.

Here it is warm now, but I know better...while I'll start seeds, and it is safe to have flowers in a hanging basket or in pots on the porch...no seeds in the ground until the end of May unless you are prepared to cover them with blankets as we often have cold weather periodically in May

Thank you so much for featuring my Dresden table runner! :) I am honored! :)

So much to say :
1. Thanks so much for featuring me - I too love the red O.
2. The table runner has been added to my project list for retirement - 5 more weeks. I have always wanted to do that quilt patter so what better than to make a table runner.
3. The teacup chandy is too cute!
