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 #43

Hello, and welcome to Share Your Cup!  Last week we had a record number of link ups.  Thanks to all of you for hopping over and sharing what ever it is in life that makes you happy.

For those of you who are having wicked Winter weather like us I hope you stay warm.  We got 18 inches of new snow yesterday and it has been snowing all day again today, crazy!

Remember that I will not be featuring any of the Valentine links yet.  On Friday, Feb. 1st I will start my “Showing a Little Love” daily posts.  Each day I will hi-lite a couple of Valentine links.  There have been some amazing ones and I can’t wait!

Before I show this weeks features I want to announce the winner of the give away.  Penny from Pennys Treasures.  You’ll notice she is one of this weeks features.  Too funny!  I did the post before I drew for the give away.

Congrats!  I hope you enjoy it.  e-mail me your address and I will get it out.

Fab Five Features:

Penny from Pennys Treasures has been doing a lot with paint.  They painted her hall cabinets white.  I love how they turned out and look at her amazing milk glass collection.

Here is another collection that made me swoon.  Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane found these goodies while out thrifting.

Jan  (great name don’t you think?) lol! from the Pink Geranium shared a fabulous collection of perfume bottles that once were her mothers.

There were a lot of great recipes last week. Kathe with an e shared these lemon puffs and they made my mouth water.  Quick and easy too!

Last of all, look at this unusual picture taken by Tina from Tina's Pic Story.  See the heart formed by the trees?  Perfect intro for my upcoming ‘Showing a Little Love” posts starting Friday.  Hope you will join me!

Burrrrr! We had a front blow in last night so temps are back to typical January range. It had been in the 80s the last few days, and we definitely are not ready for that. Today is in the 50s with beautiful sunshine. It's perfect!
Thanks for hosting.

Hi Jann, I linked up earlier, but it never showed up on the list, then tried just a few minutes ago and said it was a duplicate. Don't think the link is working.
