Share Your Cup Thursday #66

Happy 24th and welcome to Share Your Cup.  The party where you come to share whatever it is in life that makes you happy.

Each week I am amazed at the variety of links this party receives.  So fun, and I love visiting each of you!

Thanks everyone for all of the birthday wishes last week.  I appreciated it so much!

The kids came over Sunday to celebrate my ‘big 60’.  Hubby made BBQ beef and they all brought side dishes and dessert.  One of them made the red, white, & blue potato salad that was featured last week.  It was delicious.  Thanks Robin!

Hubby made me the suck candy rose bouquet that says, “it sucks to get old”.  Who knew he was so creative?

They all dressed in black and my 12 year old granddaughter said, “Grandma, I don’t get it, why are we dressed in black?”   I had to explain to her that she was mourning the passing of my youth.  She was nice enough to say that even though I had wrinkles; I didn’t look that old, I looked more like ‘40’.  Yeah right, I didn’t have the heart to tell her that her mom would be ‘40’ on her next birthday. lol!

I may be old, but this girl can still have fun!  Here I am with my inflatable walker.

And how funny is this?  My hair net to protect my poof, a funnel turned hearing aid, old lady glasses, and a new duster.  Yahoo this granny rocks!

Thanks kids for all of the good laughs!

A lot of the blogs I visited last week had word verification on.  If you want more comments I suggest you take it off.  Not sure if you have it?  Try leaving yourself a comment.

Now for this weeks features:

You have got to go visit to see what Kassandra Shabby did to create this amazing detail on an old mirror.

Poppy from With a Dash of Color shared her summer garden and some of the fun things she has created.  You must go see!

Ricki from The Questionable Homesteader lives at the back of her parents home.  She felt as if visitors got lost in their beautiful garden.  She made a creative welcome to brighten the entrance to her home.

These last two blogs are bonus features that I have featured recently.  But you know that I am such a lover of red, that I could not resist but to feature them again!

Paintin Patti's craft room had me oohing and ahhing with each and every photo.
