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.

I'm Feeling Blue

Every since we moved into our new home about a year and a half ago I've been feeling blue.
Not just any blue mind you, but that pretty turquoise blue. For those of you who know me you'd have to admit that is quite unusual. Normally I am such a red freak! Never fear, the red did not disapear it just compliments the blue very well. It all started last Spring when I decided to paint the half wall between my family room and kitchen 'Silver Sage'. A Restoration Hardware paint that I love. From there it blossomed into painting my island and fan hood. My husband had a hard time understanding how come I wanted to cover up such beautiful wood. Recently I purchased a darling red and tqs. candy cane plate. WA-LA, I decorated my kitchen table with my new favorite combo for Christmas. I'd love to have you drop in for a visit anytime. But it looks like I'll have a blue Christmas with or without you!

Silver Sage - Oh How I Love You!


I Wasn't Sure About the Blue Island-But Now I Love It!

I'll Have a Blue Christmas-A Little Red Can't Hurt Either!
