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.

Happy Halloween from me to you!


I've added a few new items this year, but this spooky banner
and my Halloween countdown calendar are my favorites!


I made this calendar with my sister-in-law, Laurie. It
was SO fun!



Our Halloween Home


Cute pumpkin head given to me by my
sweet friend Ann


This is the first quilt I made. My sister
Julie bound it for me because I didn't know
how. So funny, I can't even begin to count
how many quilts I have bound now!


This one is called 'Pumpkins Gone Wild'



My cat collection


I love randomly scattered pumpkins throughout the yard.

Witch Hildegard



A witchy welcome!




I love my old bicycle! The deer have enjoyed munching on
the flowering kale.

My blue cupboard is so fun to fill with a few
of my 'favorite' things!



Decorating with candy is the BEST!


This is my favorite item to decorate! An old window frame
given to me by my dear old friend Joyce. We've been friends
since 6th grade.


I love decorating for Halloween! I'm not sure if it's the bright colors or what. Because I really don't like haunted houses or anything too scarey. I stick to more the fun stuff. Hope you enjoy!
