Share Your Cup Thursday #212

Welcome To Share Your Cup (SYC for short), the party where you share what makes you happy – it’s what your hosts call “filling your cup”.
Before we look at this week’s features, let’s see what’s been keeping your hosts busy.
Jo made a Different Pumpkin for the Patch and included a tutorial.
Jan set a beautiful Beach Tablescape after spending time in California visiting Disneyland and playing on the beach.
I talked talked about being a Scatterbrained Ditz as I jump from project to project around the house.
In Win a Few, Lose a Few, I shared a project that was a total fail and then a few winners.
And now for our features, selected by me this week.
Isn’t this Pottery Barn Look table refinished by Patti of Old Things New wonderful!


 I was touched by this photo shared Amy of A Day of Small Things and this line from her post, “The kitchen . . .  that is where memories happen”.


I love polka dots and color so these adorable painted pieces shared my sweet friend Connie of Crafty Home Cottage won my heart!

Chilled Watermelon Soup . . . and Paul McCartney by Amy of Ms. Toody Goo Shoes evoked some fun teenage memories of The Beatles.

I love how Penny of Penny’s Vintage Home hung an old window frame in her hallway – so many fun ways to decorate it.

I’m a big fan of enamelware and I fell in love with the cute faux enamel containers shared by Brittany and Tammy of One More Time Events.

Now it’s your turn to share -be sure to grab a button if you were featured.

Sharing My Home With You.

Welcome! I feel very blessed that I am able to share my little nest with you. I hope that I am able to give you some inspiration to make your home inviting and comfortable for you and your loved ones. If I have done that then I feel all the hours I have spent on blogging is not in vain. The most cherished part of blogging for me is the friendships that I have made and that has touched me for life.  Thank you all who visit and take the time to leave a comment.

As far as I am concerned you are all Angels that have touched my life and many others through the lovely world of blogging. I have heard that some have stopped blogging because of bad negative comments and stolen pictures. I’m so sorry that they have had to go through that. I have not had anything but a great time blogging.

Autumn 2015

We will be heading into the holiday season before you know it. I am looking forward to sharing some new and exciting holiday decor with you. I want to make my blogging more exciting to you and due to the time that it takes to produce a good blog post as well as living my life outside of blogville, you may not receive a weekly post and sometimes you will. I will always be at Share Your Cup Thursday with Jann and Carol.

Lantern Tutorial

Welcome! I can’t believe how fast this summer is slipping by. Having all four of my grands home at once really keeps me busy, as well as dealing with health problems that are here to stay.  Blogging has kind of been put at the bottom of my daily list. Hopefully when school starts I will have more time to spend on my blog like I would like to. This year three of the four grands will be in school, so it will leave me with tiny who is really a breeze to tend.
