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.

Tin Time and Share Your Cup Thursday #4

Welcome to Share Your Cup Thursday.

I am having so much fun seeing the wonderful posts shared each week!

Hubby and I have been in Arizona visiting our youngest daughter, Kylee and her husband.

I wanted to share with you a couple of Arizona thrift finds.

I have always had a love for vintage tin.  In the garden I have a collection of oil cans.

Look at this beauty my daughter found for us.

She called us when she ran across it at a thrift store.

She was so excited when she said, “Olson is even spelled with an ‘O’”!

The shopkeeper told her that it’s rare to find them with the spout attached.

Yesterday I found this great minnow bucket for $8 at the AZ D.I.

I love the graphics and that red handle!

I will be sharing my red treasures with:  Rednesday and Share the Love Wednesday, Vintage Thingie Thursday, Thrifty Things Friday

Because of my Antique finds I decided that I would feature posts with vintage items from last week. This helped me narrow it down a bit. I find it hard to pick just a few.

 

I fell hard for this darling washstand redo by Laura from Our Prairie Home She is a new blogger.  Hop over and see what this beauty looked like before. Notice the watering can?  Another one of my tin time loves!

WS44

All Is Amazing shared her wonderful collection of teacups that once belonged to her grandmother. She has more than this to share!

This old door in the garden of Andrea from Town and Prairie is known as the ‘Magic Door’. Visit her and see why.

Now, before I turn my blog over to you I want to show you my give away.

I picked up a few vintage reds at a yard sale on my way to AZ. I will be giving away this ruby red cruet and two tea cups. I know, I collect these, but I already have a cruet and quite a few cups. Thought I could share a few of my lovely reds. I also got a sugar bowl.  Sorry, keeping that piece. hee-hee! Along with the glassware there is a vintage metal lid with cherries painted on it.  It will be included in the give away.  I thought it would make a cute spoon rest. All you have to do is leave a comment and you will be entered.  If you link up and leave a comment I will throw your name in the hat twice.  Be sure and tell me in your comment.

You trip was very successful in more ways than one. All those things are very vintage and definitely keepers. My eyes are bad so I had a hard time reading your small print.

Your finds are awesome! Thanks so much for featuring my Grandmother's teacups. They are quite special to me :) I have linked up my butterfly pictures this week. Thanks for hosting!

LOVE that Olson tin! And the minnow bucket. I've got one too, and I plant it up every summer. Oh, and I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. I can already imagine those pieces sitting on my windowsill!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol

GREAT finds! Love me some crusty-rusty stuff;) hehe

SO thrilled to see my pal Laura get featured. Fabulous green wash stand.

andrea@townandprairie said...

Thank you for the sweet feature, Jann. Love your minnow bucket! My Boompa always liked the galvanized ones the best because they would stay submerged. The plastic ones just float and then the minnows would die. They don't even sell them anymore. Regards, Andrea
