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.

‘Showing a Little Love’ Challenge. . .Day 5 & Valentine Features

This morning I have been spending time in the basement with three handsome young men.

Not to worry, they are the electricians. lol!

It is so exciting to see things starting to come together.  I must compliment the contractor.  There has been someone here working every day (except for Sunday) since we started 2 weeks ago

Today’s challenge is to take a treat to someone ‘sweet’!  Easy peasy don’t you think?

Now for a few Valentine features from recent Share Your Cup links.

Isn’t Debra’s cupboard of Love fabulous?  I love her red transfer ware and the suitcases on top.  Visit her at Common Ground.  It’s easy to see why she has over 3,000 followers.

Melinda from The Refeathered Roost created a sweet Valentine vignette for her daughters room using a vintage birdcage. She is a fairly new blogger.  Hop over and show her some love.

Kay from Gallery 58 shared how she decorated her 4th floor door.  She is another new blogger that would love a visit!

Sweet features, Jann. Debra's cupboard full of pretties is a valentine in and of itself. Thanks for introducing us to the new bloggers. I'd met Melinda, but not Kay. I'm off to visit.

Actually, I had been waiting to be one of Jann's lucky Valentine's Day recipients. Imagine my surprise today when Jann appeared with a plate of goodies--valentine sugar cookies. What a treat. She brought enough for me and my hubby.

Thanks, Jann. They were mighty tasty.

Hello Jann~ I think your features are lovely! We enjoy using seasonal towels and dishes to celebrate and enjoy the 'right now'. I don't have much Valentine decor but it is easy to add festive touches to the house with a bit of red and pink, right?
Thx for stopping by,
Shawn

I am loving your challenge! On Tuesday evening I brought a plate of cupcakes to a friend who just happened to be getting home from work as I arrived. She was famished after working a 12-hr nursing shift and so grateful to see the cupcakes. Thank you for the inspiration! :) --Fran
