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 #10

Welcome to ‘Share Your Cup’.  The place to share with others what ever it is that makes you happy, (fills your cup).

Sorry that I am late at posting this.  My internet was down.  You don’t want to know why. lol! (In other words, I accidently pulled the wrong plug in the basement.  Thought I was unplugging a saw.)

Each week you amaze me with your incredible talents.

With Memorial weekend approaching my thoughts have been on my beloved family and friends that have passed on.

I wanted to share a picture of two of my Iris that were starts from my dear mother.  It was from her that I developed a love of gardening.

This weeks fabulous features:

Wouldn’t you love your kids to have a super teacher like Sweet Bee from Sweet Bee Cottage?  Be sure and check out this post and see what other marvelous projects her students made.  Wonder if they call her Mrs. Bee?

My new little Swedish friend, Pernilla lives in Australia.  She has been RED-ying her house for winter.  Yes, it’s winter in Australia.  Love her darling vignette. Visit her at Swedish Corner Down Under.

Summer is just around the corner.  Look at this cute picnic blanket made by Connie from Hot Flash n Craft n. It is made from a tablecloth and she gives a great tutorial.

Look at this beautiful tea set up by Two Cottage and Tea.  It was still too cold to have it outdoors so she sipped by the window.  I love this chippy blue chair!

I’m sure that many of you are familiar with this next blog.  Courtney from French Country Cottage has been inspiring me for a year now.  Her blog was one of the first I discovered when I began blog hopping.  She has amazing talent. I love the look she created by removing some of the doors on her kitchen cabinets.  Go visit her to see the rest of this gorgeous kitchen.

Now I can’t wait to see what filled your cup this week!

A few party rules:

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.

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.

4. Please find time to visit at least a few other participants. Each week I discover new wonderful blogs.
