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 #40

Hi and welcome to Share Your Cup.  If you are new and wondering what this party is all about.  It’s about sharing whatever it is that makes you happy.  That’s a pretty broad spectrum wouldn’t you agree?  I love the variety of posts that are shared each week!

To start this New Year off right I am offering a challenge to each of you.  Last week I had quite a few new people join the party.  I managed to make a visit to every link and there were several that only had 3 or 4 comments.  I would like to challenge you to find a link of someone that you have not visited before.  If they are new, please welcome them with open arms.

That’s what this party is all about.  Finding new people and sharing.  I so appreciate those of you who join in consistently, but let’s help get the ball rolling for the newbies out there.

Boy oh boy do you people make it hard for me to choose just a few features.  I decided to make it easy on myself and feature new (to Share Your Cup) blogs. Would love for you to hop over and say ‘hi’ if you haven’t already. 

Also I’ve been meaning to mention (and keep forgetting) if you want to pin something that I featured please pin from their blog and not mine.  I want to give credit where credit is due.  One more thing.  Some of you have word verification on.  If you take this off you will get more comments.  Some people will not even bother if they see that.  Just something to think about.

Fab Five Features:

Deb from Just Cats shared how she relaxes with white.

Allyjo from Sweet Woodruffs shared her recipe for a wonderful stove top orange potpourri.  Can’t you just smell it?  Hop over, she’ll have you saving orange peels.

The eccentric Lady took time on a cold winters day to take some amazing pictures.  Believe me, you will want to see more!

Jenn from The Schires Five shared a fun post of a conversation you might have over a cup of coffee.  Or in my case, Diet Coke. lol!  How perfect was this post for Share Your Cup?

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!
