Share Your Cup Thursday #75

Hello and welcome to Share Your Cup (SYC for short).  The party where you share the things in life that makes you happy.

Oh my, today has been the most beautiful day!  Perfect weather, sun shining, and beautiful sites of Fall everywhere I went.

In fact, driving along a back road I snagged two large pumpkins for $5 each.  To darn cute to pass up!  Sure, I harvested my own, but nothing really large.  I thought the price was great!  Sitting on a lawn with a bucket for you to drop your money inside.  Yes sir, thank you very much!

I am working on changing up the front porch a little for Halloween.

Hard to believe that September is now behind us and October has arrived.  The kid in me loves Halloween, so I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots of it on my blog.

Now on to the features from SYC #74:

*Remember, if you want to pin anything please do it from their blog and not mine.

Still seeing a few links with only a few visits.  Please try and seek out someone that you have not visited before.  Who knows?  You might make a new friend.

Phyllis from Around the House has house sitting guests.  They are working so hard that they have literally worked their fingers to the bones!  You must go read this entertaining post!

Jamie from Anderson and Grant painted the cutest Fall design on an old crate.  Hop over to see how she did it.

Isn’t this a great idea to turn an old grain sieve into a wreath?  Created by Melinda from The Refeathered Roost.  Go visit for more creative ideas.

Joy from A Vintage Green whipped up this sweet grain sack painted box.  She gives a great tutorial.  Love it!

I have been craving this bread ever since I saw it over at Priscillas.  YUM!  She shares the recipe.  Perfect for Fall!

Now for the two most visited links:

1 & 2 had the same amount of visits:

Trisha from American Honey Home for her darling burlap, felt, and twine creations.

And Tracie from Fishtail Cottage.  She showed us new additions to her home that gave it curb appeal.

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

Our weather today was absolutely lovely! Hubby and I got to take our granddaughter to a pumpkin patch with her preschool! We got to take hay rides out to the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin, saw a skit about the big bad wolf and the three pigs, and got to ride on a train through the corn field and scarecrows! Isn't fall wonderful! Thanks for hosting, I really appreciate it!

Okay. So, I really meant to stop reading posts at 8 o'clock and bake something for today's missions meeting. Good thing there is a nice bakery on the way to the church. I have just enough time to shower, get dressed and stop there.
