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.

Love in a Cup!

For many of you love in a cup might be your morning cup of coffee, or sipping on a hot cup of tea.

Well, I don’t drink coffee, and only occasionally drink tea.  So for me, the closest thing to love in a cup would be an ice cold drink of Coca Cola.  Although I prefer it straight from the can.  Really cold of course.  Seems like anymore that every time I put it on ice I get busy and forget to drink it.

But that’s not the ‘love in a cup’ I am referring to.  Todays love is a little red bird in a vintage cup.

This little sweet tweet was a gift from my friend, Dolly.  She made one for me and one for my sis, Jeanne.  She adorned the handle with bits of pearls and lace and a love tag.

As you can see, this little birdie wasn’t sure where it wanted to nest.

I love birds and I love felt and wool so this little birdie is ever so sweet!

Looks like this little birdie is made with wool? If so, that makes it even more special - what a nice, nice friend!

How darling! Love it and think that I'd keep moving it around until it finds the perfect place to nest.

Looks wonderful everywhere.

What a darling little bird. Love the way you have it displayed. I'm wandering back to browse through some more SYC. I am hiding in my office today. My natural blonde shade is on the mousey side - so I ramp it up a bit a couple times a year... any way I thought I'd go with a warmer shade then go to the salon for highlights. .. anyway I went too dark...the joke around here is my H is getting a brunette for V Day. The color is nice .. just not me, if you know what I mean. Tuesday I'll wander over to the salon and see what they have to say.. in the meantime I have decided to just go with it - it's hair color -easier to deal with than last mid-winter slumps bad hair cut! Have a great week - see you at SYC!

A thoughtful gesture from a friend always is a heart stealer. No matter where your little bird nests, it will be a special reminder of friendship.
