Share Your Cup Thursday #106

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

What a busy week I have had!  Last night I had a garden party at my home.  I was asked to host the monthly night meeting for the woman in our church.  I considered it a compliment when a few of them asked if they could instagram a photo of my yard.

Hubby and I worked all week on a last minute project that we, (I) wanted to have finished before.

The grass had sunk below the sidewalk leading down into our basement.  You could see underneath and they had not backfilled it at all.

We removed the grass and hubby filled the void space underneath the sidewalk and relocated the sprinkler head.

This is what it looks like now.

So nice to have this little project behind us!

I will be sharing some of my garden rooms in my next few posts.  Hope you will come and visit!

Last week was filled with so much inspiration!  I was in full garden mode so I couldn’t help but feature some lovely gardens.  Because of that there will be more features than usual.

Kris from Junk Chic Cottage always has the most delightful garden!

As does Tracie from Fishtail Cottage.  She shared two posts and both were delightfully full of eye candy!

Her Coop Makeover.

Karen from Somewhat Quiky Design shared the redo of an old hoosier cabinet out on her porch.

C D's Country Living redid a cabinet in her dining room.  You must go see what it looked like before!

Another fabulous makeover was this kitchen by Patti from Old Things New.  Again, you must see the before photos.

Kiki Nakita  took us on a wonderful tour of the quaint town in England where she grew up.

Don’t forget to hop over to my facebook page and see who was featured there.

With no further adieu, let’s get this party started:

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!

Remember to pin from their site and not mine.

Hi Jann! Your flagstone walk looks great. Is that Irish moss you have planted? We planted several patches of it in our flagstone patio this spring and it is starting to take off. Yay! And thank you so much for featuring my conch photo holder. I feel very honored! ~Ann

Amazing that you can do a project like this with so little mess. If Mr B and I were to get up to anything like this it would be anything but photogenic half way through. Loved the selection of super garden rooms that you shared with us. Great choices. All the best, Bonny

Isn't it funny how a simple getogether can put you in high gear to complete some projects? We had Alex's graduation party here last weekend and spent the entire month prior doing projects outside that had been put off for a year or more. Isn't it so nice to be able to enjoy all of our hard work? Your yard looks wonderful and so inviting. I only wish I lived closer so we could sit and visit :-)
