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 #32

Hello my friends and welcome to Share Your Cup!  This is the place where you come to share whatever it is that, (in the words of Phil from Duck Dynasty) makes you happy, happy, happy.  I can hear his voice saying it as I type.

Speaking of Duck Dynasty I have to show you this picture of my oldest son, Lonnie’s Halloween costume.  Yup, Phil himself.  If you haven’t watched Duck Dynasty you must give it a try.  It always leaves me laughing.  Must say that you may need to watch it a few times to really get to know the characters.

if you ask me my son is a pretty good looking guy.  You would never know it from this costume.  Guess I’ll just have to show you.   Keep in mind, I am his mother.  Although he really looks like his dad.  And yes, he does have eyes, I think he’s looking into the sun.

I sure did miss partying with all of you last week.  Hawaii was gorgeous, but it’s always great to be back home. 

I made it around to visit everyone and what a treat it was!  Here are features from SYC. #31

Michele from Finch Rest shared a darling tablescape.  These dishes are so elegant but you need to hop over and see how she used them for Halloween.

Vicki from Life in my Empty Nest shared her fun pumpkin collection.  Her post made me look around and realize that I collect pumpkins also.

How fun is this orange tackle box turned into treat box shared by Ruby and Arthur?

Cindy from Old Time Farmhouse gave us a tour of her farmhouse kitchen.  I loved this unique piece holding vintage cookbooks.

In case you missed Dru’s link I wanted you to see these pictures that she shared an offered for us to use as cards.  I think they are wonderful and will be printing some off and sending to my family for a Thanksgiving’s Day blessing.  There are a variety of them.  They are all B&W with a pop of orange. Country love straight from her Farmhouse.
