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 #53

Hello my friends and welcome to Share Your Cup!  If you’re new here, it’s the party where you share what ever it is that makes you happy.  It’s what I like to call, ‘filling your cup'”.

I learned along time ago that we must first fill our own cups and then from there help to fill others.  It’s up to us to make our own happiness.  Not a responsibility that should be put on others.

Each week you fill my cup by sharing all of your amazing gifts, talents, and touching posts.  I appreciate that you take time out of your busy day to come party with me!

We have been super busy here at the Olson house.  Our basement is nearing completion and many hours have been spent readying the garden.

Spring is my favorite season and I am loving all of the wonderful springtime posts!

Here’s what caught my eye last week. 

Jeannie from For What it's Worth has been spending time in her lovely garden. I loved her post about how time got away from her while in the garden.

Kathy from Life on Lakeshore Drive created this darling moss bunny from a ceramic one.  Which I might mention, her daughter said had, ‘evil eyes’.

Ceekay’s husband brought her home an unusual piece.  She found a fun way to use it with her cloche.  Visit her at Thinkin of Home.

Denise at Second Time Around found this wonderful  hoosier cabinet  for her kitchen.  You need to go see her hutch filled with her Pyrex collection also.  Did I mention that I have had a hoosier for years.  Really didn’t have a place to use it in this home.  But I have the perfect spot for it in my basement.  I was thinking to paint it a color.  After seeing this beauty I now want it white.

Debbie from Ribbonwood Cottage shared these gorgeous dishes that were hand painted by her husband’s grandmother.

Doesn’t this Strawberry Cream Torte look yummy shared by Sarah from Hope in Every Season?

I had to show you the transformation in Tracie’s garden after living there 6 years.  She has more before and after pictures of her gorgeous garden at Fishtail Cottage.

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 two other participants. It’s a great way to find new blogs

After you link up please come back and leave a comment. They help to fill my cup

Oh the Hoosier...
My cousin is bringing back my Grandmothers to 1515 in MAy. It was always white but she had it stripped. I never agree with painting a good piece of furniture, but I want it to look the way I remember it and yes my Pyrex is going in it!

Jann, thank you once again for hosting a fun get together. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through many of these talented women. Thank you also for the word of wisdom and reminding all of us the importance of filling our own cups and taking time for ourselves.
