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 #31

Hello my friends and welcome to Share Your Cup.  If you are a regular party animal I want to say “thank you"!  I so appreciate you partying with me each week.  If you are new here, “welcome and howdy”!  So happy to have you share what ever it is that fills your cup, or in other words, makes you happy!

Can you believe that Halloween is only a week away?

We are off for a vacation so this will be the last chance I will get to hi-lite Halloween posts.  So today that is what I will be featuring, Fall and Halloween.

Also, there will be no Share Your Cup next week.  So please remember to come back in a couple of weeks and party.

Babs from Upstairs Downstairs shared her haunted foyer with the black Magnolia leaves and eerie moss.  Hop over and see what lurks beneath this mirror.

Debra from Doll in the Looking Glass created a lot of fun potion bottles just by using what she had around the house.

Pam from Apothecary Shop creates wonderful French items.  It’s no wonder that her Halloween décor has as a touch of French linen and music.

Carlene from Organized Clutter Queen showed us a recap of her Fall/Halloween décor.  So many wonderful vignettes.  I had a hard time deciding which picture to show.

Just look at this ‘wagon of plenty’ shared by Dru from Country Farm Home.  Good thing she snapped pics because a wind came up right after and played havoc on her creation.

Debra from Common Ground gave her sunporch a touch of Fall.

Now for a fun craft.

Look at this wonderful leaf bowl created out of faux leaves by Better Organized Living .  She gives a great tutorial and tips.

And a recipe.

How yummy do these ‘pumpkin drool bars’ made by  Twirl and Taste look?  And I don’t even like pumpkin.

Pumpkin Pollys

I know that I featured a picture of Fall colors last week.  I don’t know about you, but I never tire of seeing the wonders that God and nature provide for us.  Linda from Photo Mom Linda is an avid hiker and runner.  she snapped some gorgeous photos on this rainy day hike.

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! Thanks so much for featuring our wagon! That was the last we saw of it. After days of high winds, we finally stored everything for next year.
Have a wonderful vacation--see you when you get back--safely!
