Share Your Cup #232

Hello and welcome to Share Your Cup, (SYC for short).
 
The party where you share what makes you happy.  It's what I call, "filling your cup".
 
I have been so busy the last couple of weeks.  I am helping a friend with her Aunts estate.  She passed away recently and had a home full of treasures.  She lived in a very rural area and her only son lives out of state.  My friend, Dolly asked if I would help her sort and sale for the son.  It is quite a job, but I am definitely getting my junkin fix!  The estate is 2 hrs. away from my home and I have made two trips in which I returned home with my small SUV packed to the brim.  I am having our first sale this Thurs.-Sat.  Hoping it goes well.  If so, I'll be packing up more and hosting another sale in just a couple of weeks.
 
Last week we traveled 4 hours away and spent time with extended family.  We all gathered to celebrate my oldest sister's 80th birthday.
 
I shared a guest post by Merri Cvetan where she showed us a Bathroom Vanity Redo-Craftsman Style
 

Now for the features from SYC #231:
 
 
Carol from Comfort Spring shared the recipe for her yummy Tangerine Yogurt Dream Parfait.
 

 
 
Just Jan Blog shared some of her beautiful tablescapes with flowers from '2016'.
 
 
Carole From My Carolina Home shared her winter whites.
 
 
 
Kathy from Sharing Shadymont shared her goodwill find that she gave a makeover.

You have been in quite a busy mode. That's a ton of work. Well, good for you. I'll bet in a way it's kind of fun. And I'll also bet you'll be glad when it is done.

Off for a few days to connect with some bloggers and celebrate Rick's mom's 80th birthday! Wish I had more time to check out links. Maybe next week!

Hi Jann, thanks for hosting your weekly link up party, it is always fun to participate! Today I am sharing the roses that have bloomed in my garden in December (# 19). There were quite a few because we finally have gotten some decent winter rain here in Southern California.
Gosh, organizing an estate sale must be so much work! Wishing you that your sale is going well. I went to my very first one as a buyer just a few weeks ago and was totally overwhelmed by the amount that was up for sale, let alone the thought that someone had to sort through it all, price it, and arrange it in an orderly presentable way.
Warm regards,
Christina
