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 #18

Hi everyone and welcome to Share Your Cup!  This is the place you come to share what ever it is that makes you happy.  In other words, what fills your cup.

Each week you amaze me with all of the wonderful things that you share.  I had such a hard time narrowing the features down to just 5. But I think you’ll agree, these are pretty amazing. Also, for some of these the hubbies were involved.  a big thank you to them also.


I absolutely love this drink station made by  Bliss Ranch.  What a creative use of an old dresser.

And how about this entry closest by Kandi from Woven Home?  It went from drab to fab!

Here is another fabulous entry idea by Pernilla from Swedish Corner Down Under.  I LOVE the rustic corrugated tin!  Thinkin I may need to add a piece to my entry.

Look at this beautiful fern themed outdoor table setting by Heather from New House, New Home, New Life.  Doesn’t it look so refreshing for a hot summer day?

I’m already at four?  That means I can only choose one more, UGH! 
There were a lot of vintage item link ups that I just loved.  I decided to choose one that was shared by a blog that had not been featured before.

Joy from A Vintage Green shared with us all of her garage and estate sale finds.  She found some real treasures.  Hop over and see.

A few party rules and then “Let the party 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.
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. It’s a great way to discover new wonderful blogs.

Hi Jann; thanks for featuring my post on garage and estate sale finds (and thanks for the comment on my blog to tell me the good news).

I added Evolution of Space today - the history of a basement space from oil tank storage to DGS's 9 year old bedroom space (a 32 year evolution).

Thanks for hosting yet again, always appreciated.

Jann, thanks for coming by and checking out my finds at Quirky Vistas. So glad you like the stuff. I love that you have the set like my chairs. Do you have a shot of it anywhere on your blog? I'd like to see yours. If I repaint, I'm wondering what to do about color too. I love the way they are now, but they really are a mess. Always love hearing from you. Come again any time!

That dresser turned beverage center is "the bomb"! She/he did a wonderful job and ended up with a statement piece!

Chenille Cottage said...

Thank you, Jann...for allowing me to post on your "Share Your Cup". I am a bit embarrassed and I do want to follow your instructions...But, being new to blogging, as of yet, I still don't know how to post your cute little teacups on my sidebar...:} I tried to get some help from a computer geek last week and he was stumped! He is terrific at setting up websites...but, unfamiliar with blogging. I promise that when I finally figure it out I will happily post your button.
Blessings and a bit of befuddlement...
