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 #22

Hi everyone and welcome to Share Your Cup.  This is the place that you share what ever it is that fills your cup, (makes you happy).

I just realized that today is the 22nd and we are on SYC #22.  Thanks to all of you the party has been a success and continues to grow.   I really appreciate you taking away my worst nightmare.  That of throwing a party and nobody showing up. lol!

Here are my fav five from last week:

I am sure that most of you know how talented Kate from Salvage Dior is.  After all she has been featured in Romantic Homes magazine.  She always wows us with her wonderful whites.  Well, she’s done it again.  Look at this darling wall art made from rubber outdoor mats.  Yes, rubber and purchased for $1 at the dollar store.  Hop over to see how she did it.

Candy from Pickin and Paintin saved this beautiful piece from a fire in her first little home.  She brought her back from the ashes and turned her into a real beauty.

How cute is this trash turned to treasure chest?  Pattie from On Hollyhock Farm rescued it from the trash and created a darling garden accent.  Go visit her to see her other garden beauty.

I’m sure that you are familiar with this next blog.  Linda from Coastal Charm hosts Nifty Thrifty Tuesday.  If you haven’t linked up with her before, you must!  Using an old coffee sack she turned an old industrial chair into this beauty queen!  Love that turquoise stripe!

Today I wanted to introduce you to a young artist.  Sarah from Sensible Sarah is such a talented girl.  Last week she shared her Big Head Doodles. It’s easy to see that her drawings make her happy.  I can see her drawing for Disney some day.

Now I can’t wait to see what you have to share this week.  Hopefully you are starting to get a bit of cooler weather.  That should help to make us all happy.

A few party rules:

1. I would love for you to be a follower of Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson
2. Link up a particular post and not your entire blog.
3. Please have a link back to this post. That way others will know where the party is. Feel free to grab my button on the sidebar if you’d like.
4. Please find time to visit at least a few other participants. It’s a great way to discover new wonderful blogs
