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.

Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on it’s Way!

There are two Spring Link Parties going on at the same time.  So today I will be doing two posts.  Is that sick or what?  Two in one day!

I can’t help myself.  I want to join both and if I put them together the post will be one humongous thing.

For the Springtacular party I am sharing my Easter Mantel.

I had to buy this May basket when I saw it at the Star Mill.  It reminds me of the ones my mother use to take to the cemetery for Memorial Day.  I’ve filled it with a couple of faux flower bushes.

This is Peter getting ready to come hopping down the Bunny Trail.

Where there are bunnies there are sure to be carrots.

I wanted Subway Art with dimension.  I pulled out my scrapbooking crafts and had everything to make this canvas.

The hearth says, “Welcome Spring”.

Easter brings out the kid in all of us.  I still love hunting for eggs.  Luckily I have grandies that I can ‘pretend’ that I am helping them. lol!
