My Alpine Home


We have lived in our new home in Alpine, Utah for four years now. My current goal is to make a larger more open home (which works great with our extended family) have a bit of cottage charm and seem more cozy. I hope you will follow along and give me encouragement as well as advice as I embark upon this challenge.

Share Your Cup Thursday #34

Hello my friends and welcome to Share Your Cup.

Oh how I love this time of year.  Everything about it makes me happy.  The smell of pies and turkey baking in the oven, candied yams, and cranberries.  These are among my favorites!  I feel so very blessed and thank my Heavenly Father for my faith, family, friends and the freedom we enjoy!

I also am so anxious to start decking the halls.  Started a little on my bedroom.  In my opinion there is not a happier time of year.  I even love the hustle and bustle of it all.

Call me crazy, but I just do!

Before I show the features I wanted to show you our Creating Christmas party button.

I can’t wait!  Please get your posts ready and come join us. One thing I would like to add to Cindy’s Farmstyle Christmas is that you can also link up your holiday cooking and recipes.

Also we would love if you would put our Christmas party button on your sidebar or in a post to help us advertise.  The more the merrier, right?

There may be an added bonus later if you do, just sayin. Heehee!

Now here’s what caught my eye from last week.

I absolutely adore these stacking baskets that Homespun shared.  The mixture and colors are just perfect!

I featured A Southern Belle with Northern Roots last week, but I fell head over heals in love with the transformation of this sweet cupboard and everything on it.

Just look at this ottoman Allyson from Domestic Super Hero made using a pallet.  Pretty amazing if you ask me!

Laurie from Heavens Walk  had a glass top table.  She bought wood and all by her little old self turned it into this beauty.

With Thanksgiving tomorrow how appropriate are these pumpkins by Pollyanna Reinvents?

And  to get us in the mood for Christmas look at these sweet folk art lambs made by Jennifer from Thimbles, Bobbins, Paper, and Ink

Now for 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.
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.
4. Please find time to visit at least a few other participants. It’s a great way to find new blogs

Wishing all of my American Friends a very Happy  and blessed Thanksgiving!
