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 #19

 

My how quickly the week flies by.  It’s hard to believe that it’s time for Share Your Cup already.

A Time for you and I to reflect upon what ever happened, or where you went, or what you did that helped to make your life a little bit happier this week.

For me it was an easy choice.  Friday we happily welcomed the arrival of our 9th grandchild, Will.  So excited to have him home.

As I was selecting this weeks features I noticed that I kind of had a black & white thing going on.

Look at this cute tablescape by Kathe with an E.  Don’t you just love it?  Hop over and see the rest of the table.

How about this gossip bench curb side save by Margaret from Chantilly Charm.  You really need to go see the before.  Not only did she make us drool over this darling bench but she had to tease us with her pool, jealous!

I love a bit of whimsy in the garden.  How cute is this darling chandy by Jody from Rooted in Thyme?  She gives a great tutorial on how she covered the shades.

 This little lady as Angie from  Knick of Time so poetically put it is a bit time worn.  But she still looks fabulous with a new coat of paint.

This next feature was brought to us by a man.  Nathan from Nates Necessities shares with us his vintage finds.  I love this typewriter with the dream banner.  I have one similar.  Thinkin I need a banner!  Go see what other treasures he found.  Also love the light bulb.

I had to add one extra feature today because I loved it so much!  Sarah from Alderberry Hill shared her fabulous house sign.  Now wouldn’t that just make you want to drive up the lane to see more?

Jann,

Congratulations on the birth of your grandchild. I am hoping that your surgery goes well.

I absolutely love the black and white checked tablescape that you featured. And the number sign is beautiful. I do believe that I typed many term papers on that typewriter.

Hoping that the rest of your week goes well.
