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 #39

Hello and welcome to ‘2013’! I am starting Share Your Cup a little early today.  Hard to believe that another year has come and gone.  I hope that looking back there have been more happy times than sad.

I want to tell you how much I enjoy each of you taking the time to come party with me.  Sharing the things in life that make you happy.  In other words, fill your cup.

The start of a New Year always gives me the organizing bug.  It helps to occupy my time until Spring arrives.

Here are last weeks features:

Robin from Decorating Tennis Girl shared their first snow.  I adore her sweet home with the red door.  Doesn’t it look so pretty all dressed in white?

Look at this sweet gift Elaine from Sunny Simple Life found under the tree from one of her daughters.  She also shared baking day with her girls.

Cathy from One Creative Couple shared her wall of Christmas trays. She mentioned, and I agree; that this would be fun to do for other holidays.

While some of us are hunkering down for Winter Jeanette Ann from Heirloom Treasures is enjoying her gorgeous garden blooms.  If this doesn’t make you anxious for Spring I don’t know what will.

It’s always fun to look back on the previous year.  Yael from Home Garden Diggers reviewed some of the places she had been.

A few rules and then 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. Please limit your links to no more than three.
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. Only those with links back will be featured.
4. Please find time to visit at least a few other participants. It’s a great way to find new blogs

After you link up I would love for you to leave a comment. They help to fill my cup!

 Now let’s see what wonderful things you’ve been up to this week.

Thanks for hosting! I'm not quite ready for spring yet, winter just arrived here with the new year!

Chenille Cottage said...

Hello from paradise....Oh, it was so pretty today in sunny San Diego. Blue skies and cool breezes and not a cloud in the sky.
We went to birthing class tonight and I learned a lot...Oh, how I wish I had known more when I had my babies!
I just love the blogs you have featured this week. Elaine's cute retro radio is just the cat's meow! Robin's home is the perfect New England home...so cozy and inviting. I love it's curb appeal. Wouldn't it be fun to have a white picket fence?
Each blog is a treat and represents so much talent and unique style.
Thank you, Jann for your sweet spirit. You bless me with every one of your posts!
Big hugs,
Carolynn xxx
