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 #6

HI everyone and Welcome to Share Your Cup Thursday.  Last week was such a success and wonderful things were shared.


Because I had just done a post about collections I commented that if anyone had a collection I would love to see them.


Here are a few great collections.

Carlene from Organized Clutter shared her wonderful collection of bath tins.  Hop over and see how fun they all are.  There was a bit of jealousy going on over here at Mrs. Olsons.  This is something that I have wanted to collect for some time.  I have two.  Just haven ‘t ran across any reasonably priced.

I had decided that I would not feature someone that was featured the following week.  Well, here I go breaking that rule. lol!  Sandies collection of unusual planters was one I could not resist.  I too love planting in all kinds of vintage items.  They were all wonderful, but this was my favorite.  Visit her at Steadmans Corner

The last collection is from Shasta from In the Old Road.  I love how she is displaying her vintage hankie collection.

Now for a few other posts that I loved.


Poppy from With a Dash of Color showed us how she dolled up some pots Frenchy  Style.

Little Susie Homemaker shared a meatloaf recipe out of this 1950’s cookbook.  Can you believe that it was identical to the recipe my MIL gave me when we were first married.  Hubby’s favorite!  He always likes it with a baked potato and corn.

Thanks Jann for the feature! I love the unique planter too, I see why you broke your rule. I won't be planting until late May!

DallyGirl @ Lifeat2810 said...

Thanks for hosting. I adore the unique planter feature too. We have been working on the same thing with odds and ends around our place but we can't actually plant much for a couple more weeks.

Debra @ Common Ground said...

Glad to find more bloggers that like vintage!

Love the features! Carlene has the best collections, the vintage hankies are wonderful, and I had the same cookbook many years ago, and found a copy last year at a library used book sale. Now I have to try the meatloaf.

Happy to be joining in with my my special 30th anniversary roses!

I like the planter,it looks like it was once a pigeon loft.
xx Thank you for your visit and nice comments

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Thank you for the invite and hosting. I loved the blender pen, but it only does about 3 graphics and it is empty. None of the local craft stores have them in stock, so you have to get them online and they cost like $5, which would be OK if it lasted. I am thinking it was so easy, but will probably not be my first choice for transfers

Rob Hunt said...

I was working on my compost bins and when I looked up there were two deer coming for a snack of tender tulip leaves and anything else that appealed to them. Country life. Thanks for hosting.

Shannon @ Cozy Home Scenes said...

Thanks for hosting the party and for showing off my napkin rings!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

That is such a cute way to repurpose a nesting box!
