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 #30

Hello and welcome to Share Your Cup!  What a fun week I have had visiting last weeks links.
So much talent and Inspiration!  Thanks to all of you.

Here are a few that caught my eye.


Lynn at Upcountry Olio gave her bedroom a little tweaking.  You need to visit to see what she used to help create it.

I have featured Sally from Salmugundi just recently but I love how she corralled her lucky number in this vintage jar.  Thinking I need to do that with my lucky #’s 7 and 17.

Laura from Cottage and Broom showed us a gorgeous Fall photo of Michigan.

Priscillas  blog took us on a tour of her Fall home.  There’s lots more to see, including an amazing display of outdoor pumpkins.  But I love this subway runner.

Aimee from Craftmates recently moved into a new home.  She took a break from unpacking to give her front entry some beautiful curb appeal.

Ann from Cairn Cottage showed us her Fall tablescape.  I love the plates with the sentiments.  Believe it or not, she got them at Wal-Mart.

Chantilly Charm bought some faux pumpkins and turned them into these beauties.

Victoria from It's Always Sunny in Tucson shared 4 crafts that she had made.  Loved them all but these were my favs.

I must admit, I am not a big fan of googly eyes.  But how cute are these created by Bunny Jean from Bunny Jeans Decor and More.

I don’t know which I love more, the eerie window or the rustic red barn wood shared by Ann from Once Upon a Firefly.  I must tell you, this brings back a  scary childhood experience.  My sisters Julie and Jeanne will know exactly what I am talking about.

I’m sure that you noticed that I featured more Fall and Halloween this week.  Just realizing that it will be over in a blink of an eye.
Thanks everyone and please grab my button if you were featured.

The winner of my give away is Laura from Cottage and Broome.  Congrats Laura!  e-mail me your address and I will send it out Friday.
Now for a few rules and let the fun begin!
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 find new blogs.

Hi Jann,
You always direct me to new (to me) blogs on your Fill Your Cup days!
I am SO behind in everything in my life! Blogging....housework, ironing, reading my favorite blogs...EVERYTHING! I have been so busy filling orders, (and I am thankful for that, not complaining one bit) but I am such a creature of habit that it has thrown my whole routine for a loop!
Hugs,
Kris
