Share Your Cup Thursday #152

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

Today I am so excited to share an announcement with you!
(no, I'm not pregnant!  lol!  That would be scary!!)

 Before I do, I need to tell you that there will be no SYC next week.
Hubby and I will be off on our first summer get away.
 
For two years now I have been wanting to host a "Meet and Greet" blog party.
 
 
Well,
I've decided that this is the year!  On Sat. June 27th I am gathering together blog friends and having a garden luncheon at my home.
 
Now I realize that this will be primarily Utah bloggers.  However, if you are wanting to take a trip to UT I would LOVE to have you!  I would even help put you up.
 
In honor of this celebration I stepped out into the garden with my French gathering basket and clipped an assortment of blooms.
 
I kept adding more, and more.  A variety of colors and textures.
 
 
This is how I imagine this gathering of bloggers to be.  So many different personalities and talents, but oh what wonderful and fun loving gals!
 
Put them (us) all together and how magnificent it becomes!
 
(French Lilacs, Peonies, Jupiters Beard, purple Bell flowers, and yellow Mrs. Bradshaw)
 
 
I literally am giddy just thinking about it!
Please let me know in a comment if you are able to attend.  I would like somewhat of a count for food.
 
 
Also, for those of you who are unable to attend, I thought I would host a virtual 'Meet and Greet' link party.  On Monday the 29th I will share a post about the party and include a link for you to tell a little bit about yourself.
Don't be shy!  Let people know what you love and what makes you happy! Add some fun facts to help others get to know you better.  Please mark this on your calendar and prepare a post to share!!
 
Blog friends to the end!!
 
Now let's see the features from SYC #152
*remember to pin from their site and not mine.
 
I love these updated stools and chairs that Barbara from
21 Rosemary Lane shared of her friends kitchen.
 
 
Joy from A Vintage Green shared some of her fabulous thrift finds.
 
 
 
 
 
Laurie from Heaven's Walk shared a wonderful post about needing the laughter of color in her life.
 


Elizabeth from More than a Mom shared an heirloom quilt she was quilting.
 
 



Laurel from North End Loft took us on a wonderful tour of her rustic garden.
(be sure and click on the link in her post)
 
 
Bree, a member of Reviews, Chews, and How-To's shared recipes for great homemade seasonings.
 
 
Thanks so much for sharing and please grab my button if you were featured.
 


 
Don't forget to hop over to my fb page and see who was featured there!
 
 Now Let's Party!
 
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 back link to this post.  That way others will know where the party is. Only those with a back link 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!
