Share Your Cup Thursday #68

Hello and welcome to Share Your Cup!  The party where you come to share the things that make you happy.  In other words, what fills your cup.

I hope that your cups are overflowing with happiness and that it will spread amongst others!

This past week has been a busy one.  On Saturday I attended a vintage sale, Fleattitude.  What a fun event and I did get a few fabulous things I’ll share later.  Afterwards hubby and I went shopping for a new sectional.  We are going to move our family room furniture downstairs and put the new one upstairs.  We had seen one a while ago.  Of course it had sold and we had to order it.  Now we will be waiting 6-8 weeks.

We also celebrated our ‘41st Anniversary’ on the 4th.  Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments on my somewhat silly post I did about it.  Sometimes I wonder if you think, “that girl is crazy’!

I also took a short two day trip to Vernal, UT with my sister, Jeanne and her daughter.  We did a little bit of research on our heritage.  Always fun to learn more about your relatives.  Oh, and I brought home a few treasures too.

Going out of town for a couple of days put me in the last minute mode.  I found myself visiting many of last weeks links just today. 

There were so many fabulous table posts shared because of Cuisine Kathleen's ‘Let there be white’ party that I could not possibly pick just one.  I enjoyed each and every one of them so much.  Truly fabulous ideas!

Now for this weeks features:

  I adored the cottage feel of Nancy’s garden  from Two Cottages and Tea.

I think I was having a bit of ‘front porch love’ this week.  Maybe it’s because I know that summer will be coming to an end way too soon.

Patti at Old Things New shared her darling summer porch.  Hop over to get a better look at her swing.

And look at this farmhouse one Denise on a Whim shared of her friend, Mary’s home.

And how about Mary Alice’s from Chateau Chic?  Love that childs wheel barrow and bird cage.  Did I mention that my sister, Jeanne just found a cage and stand at a yard sale for $40?  I’m having a bit of jealousy going on over here!  Oh, and guesss what else?  I just snagged a piece of gingerbread trim like that you can see in Mary Alice’s window.

I thought this was too cute to not share.  Lisa from My Ordinary Country Life made her chickens their very own scratching area.  Now she’s just hoping they can read.

Now let’s see a few indoor features: 

Jen from Lace Crazy has been creating the most fabulous pillows for her bed made from old curtains.  Jen is a fellow UT gal.

Bella Note pillows (2) 048

Kadee Willow shared the creative use of this grating and her new window treatment at her side door entry.

Blue Willow House has been refreshing her bedroom for summer.  Love her straw hat collection!

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!

I already know that you are crazy which is why you are so much fun! Coming back later or tomorrow as I might get electrocuted if I stay online....ha ha ha we are having severe storms right now but I knew about them before I ever saw the weather or heard thunder. The dogs started acting crazy about 1/2 hour before distant thunder was ever heard. Amazing :)
