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 #20

Sorry that I am a bit late, no good excuse.  I went galavanting with friends and just got home.  Found some fun treasures!

Hi everyone and welcome to Share Your Cup!  If you’re new here and wondering what it’s all about I’d be happy to tell you.

It’s all about sharing what ever it is that fills your cup.  You know, makes you happy.  I learned a long time ago that if we want to help fill other peoples cups that we must first fill our own.

Happy to have you if you are new and a big thanks to you faithful friends that link up often!

Numbers were down a little last week, but still lots of wonderful posts were shared.

Here are this weeks features:

I absolutely love this chippy piece shared with us by Mary Alice from Chateau Chic.  Yummy layers of color.

And look at this fabulous tin collection of The Country Farm Home.  don’t you love the color?

Angie from Knick of Time has been remodeling her kitchen.  Every now and then she shares some of her fantastic creations.  If this is just a sampling, can’t wait to see the finished redo!

Can you see that I am on a bit of a vintage kick this week.  Couldn’t miss out on one of my first loves, dishes!  Fabby from Fabbys Living shared her collection of  English red Transferware.  Aren’t they gorgeous?

Yupiii Pink English Transferware 003

This last idea by Life in My Empty Nest was a great example of reuse, repurpose, and recycle. She turned this unused fire pit into a wonderful planter.

Oh, how I love coming here to visit, even if I don't share in it! That fire pit planter gave me a great idea - I have one I have only used once, and probably will never use again. That would make a beautiful planter! Thanks so much for the wonderful ideas!
