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 #52

Hello and welcome to Share Your Cup.  The party where you share the things that make you happy.  In other words, what ‘fills your cup’.

It has been such beautiful Spring weather here the last few days and that certainly has filled my cup!

I worked in the garden earlier today.  Our 17 year old grandson has been spending a few days with us.  His family went to the sand dunes for Easter and he had to come home early.  He helped plant my early Spring veggies.  His ducks enjoyed wandering around in the yard while he worked.  He bought them as tiny chicks just a month ago.  I can’t believe how they’ve grown.  I forgot to snap of pic of him so I had his dad e-mail me this one.

Before showing this weeks features I would just like to remind you to please have a link back to the party.  Last week there were a number of posts that I wanted to feature but they did not have a link back.  I know that it is not intentional, and after I brought it to their attention some added the link.  Sorry, but I must stick to my rules and only those with links will be featured. 

Also, I noticed a few links with low number of comments.  Let’s get out there and visit!  Give those newbies a big ‘welcome’!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter holiday.  Hubby and I went on a road trip and had so much fun.  Although I must admit, without attending church and spending time with family it really didn’t feel like Easter.

Now for SYC #51 features:

Erica from Pyrex Thrifter Sisters has such fun vintage Easter.  I loved these little birds.  Go visit her to see lots, lots more!

 If you know me you know I love birds.  Diane from Design till it Shines printed this darling graphic and created a sweet vignette.

Sue from A Colorful Canvas made this Spring welcome for her front door.

I love these darling curtains created by Rachel from Maison de Pax!

And look at these gorgeous blooms caught by Photo Mom Linda.  Doesn’t it just make you want to jump in your car and drive to Portland?

Hello, my sweet friend!
What a delight to be able to get my post done just in time to join in your delightful party. I confess that it's Friday as I am posting...but, better late than never! My little dumpling and his mommy leave today. It's been such fun loving on him and kissing those sweet little rosy cheeks.

I have enjoyed your blog features. Oh, the pretty pink blossoms! It will be a pleasure visiting this coming week with many of those beautiful blogs.

Blessings and thanks so much for hosting! I love SYC!
Hugs,
