Share Your Cup Thursday #63

Hello and welcome to Share Your Cup (or SYC, for short).  The party where you share what ever it is in life that makes you happy.

For everyone in the states, wishing you a very happy and safe 4th of July holiday.

We have record hot temps here so we’re just trying to stay cool.  Still going forward with our annual 4th of July outdoors breakfast.  Keeping it small with just family this year.

Now for some fun features:

Stacey from the Gluten Free Pastors Wife shared some of her fabulous vintage finds.

I thought that both of these creative tables were so cute.

Virginia from Artsy VaVa made this sweet red one from a vintage suitcase.

and Jeanette from Creating a Life made this one from an old steamers trunk.

Isn’t this the most romantic outdoor tea you have ever seen?  Shared by Karen's Cottage and Castle.

And the winner of the Ropesoul sandals for my summer give away is Christine from Christines Home and Travel Adventures.  I think today is her lucky day!

Congrats.  Let me know your choice of colors and size.

Now let’s party!

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

Lovely features...our taste is much the same as I loved many of your choices and just missed a few....Jann I hope the heat wave ends! I read on the news earlier about a reporter or someone testing whether they could bake cookies outside and they did. In fact the cookies burned. Just sitting in the sun and hot temps. Hope the temps are not that bad where you are! :)

Hi there! I've really struggled to link up this week!! Crazy but probably just a tech wobble or something! Hence my generic linky picture - the giveaway is happening on my blog if you'd like to take a look! Thanks for hosting and for the lovely things you picked to feature - they're just my cup of tea ;0) J9 x
