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 #3

Spring is in the air here at Mrs. Olson’s.  I am loving every minute of it!
I have been so busy in the garden.  Let’s just say, if I was an animal I would no longer have a tail! lol!  I spent most of the day Monday spreading mulch and tossing it up onto our rock wall.  When hubby came home from work he said, “Why didn’t you save some for me to do?”  I actually left one wheelbarrow full.  I felt fine while I was doing it, and crazy as it may seem it certainly filled my cup (you know, made me happy). Oh boy did I pay for it later.  My right leg has been killing me.  Well, enough about me.  Can’t wait to see what you have been doing to fill your cups.


First I want to thank you for sharing last week.  I enjoyed everything so much!  I found a few new friends and I so appreciate my good buddies that support me!
Here are the features from last weeks party.  I am showing more than usual this week.  I wanted to share a few Easter posts also.  So hard, I wanted to feature each and everyone of you!


Stephanie from Gilded Junque shared her love for vintage hankies.  This stole my heart because it reminded me of my dear mother.

Look at these sweet old Easter postcards shared by Pam from Virginia Retro.

I totally fell in love with Kathy’s collection of vintage green and blue glassware.  The colors are just so perfect for Spring.  Visit her at  A Delightsome Life.102_3538
The Old Block House shared the first dresser she redid. Great job,  love the curves!

Look at these darling flower eggs shared by Sarah from Alderberry Hill, too cute!  She showed some on another post that she made in black and white.  They were just as charming!

Shasta from In the Old Road made making these old book flowers look easy.  She gave great instructions.

and finally, I loved these Cream Cheese Mints made by Kelley from Kelley's Highway.  She had me at cream cheese. lol!  She made them for her daughters birthday, but wouldn’t they be fun for Easter?  I can see them colored pink and green.

Hi Jann-

I didn't see a list of what to add to the party, so I hope my garden post is okay. Congrats on your new party. Sorry I haven't come until now, but I have been very, very busy with real life and haven't been able to visit as many blogs lately. Hope you are doing well. Have a great Easter!

I didn't realize you were starting a party! I've been under a rock most of the last three weeks as we all recovered from the flu in succession. I will come back tonight to link up! Awesome! Thanks!

Red Rose Alley said...

These old book flowers are lovely, Jann. They remind me of Nel who is working on her Ph.D. right now. The eggs are sweet too. I noticed your turquoise post and loved it, as I am just decorating a room in turqoise and pink. Happy Easter to you, my friend. Have a blessed day.
