Share Your Cup Thursday #82

Hello and welcome to Share Your Cup. (SYC).  The party where you share the things in life that make you happy.  In other words, that fill your cup.

By sharing and visiting you help to fill others cups as well.

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a week away.  After that it will be full Christmas mode for me.  I can hardly wait.  Visions of vignettes have been dancing through my mind.  lol!  Come on, please tell me that  I’m not the only one that does that.

I hope you all are gearing up to share with our upcoming ‘Creating Christmas’ party!

I’m still keeping my eye out for those who are placing our button on their side bar.  There will be a drawing for a give away just for helping us spread the word about our party.

I thought this week it would be fun to hi-light some of the wonderful Thanksgiving themed links from last week:

I love how Simply Suzanne placed the sage leaves on the outside of her turkey and also printed up her menu for display.  So elegantly pretty!

Kitty's Kozy Kitchen shared her whimsical turkey cheese ball.

Vicki from Life in My Empty Nest shared the recipe for her mother’s stuffing.  It is almost identical to my moms stuffing.  I add mushrooms and chicken broth.

And then Mary Ellen from Recipes , Food and Cooking showed us what to do with our leftover stuffing.

Debra from Common Ground awed me with her nature inspired tablescape.  Love that plaid throw for a table covering!

I also loved the color combination of this blue & white Thanksgiving table by Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane

And Jamie from Anderson and Grant gave us tips for setting a perfect table as well as how to make Decorative Butter.

Babs from Upstairs Downstairs shared her gorgeous Thanksgiving platter.  I have thrifted plates that match.  Oh how I would love to find one of these!

If you are wanting a spot of tea to settle your stomach after all that food.  How sweet would it be served from this wonderful teapot of Ruth’s from Antiques and Teacups?

I did extra features this week and I really could have done so many more.  Because of that I will not share the top two most visited links.   If you have shared a Christmas post that will fit with any of our ‘Creating Christmas’ topics please feel free to share them again!

Thanks everyone and please grab my button if you were featured.

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 and please do not link up the same thing you linked up last week.
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!

Dear Jann,
Thank you so much for the lovely feature! I placed the sage leaves just under the skin of the turkey. As the skin bakes, it embraces the sage leaves making them prominent. So delicious. I hope you try using sage this year.
As always, thank you for hosting such a fun and inspirational party!
Have a beautiful week,
Suzanne
