Grace at Home No. 128


Welcome, friends!  I can hardly believe it's already Thursday again--but that's okay, because it's time for our weekly Grace at Home party.  We are all recipients of God's grace, and in this party we celebrate that fact--and we share the ways we make our homes reflections of that grace.

Here are some wonderful links from last week's party.

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is in just four short weeks.  Get a headstart on your Thanksgiving tablescape with inspiration from this tablescape from Leslie at Gwen Moss Blog!



Of course, tomorrow is Halloween--and if you're in a pinch for a last-minute costume for your little ones, here are 18 great last-minute ideas from Steph at A Time for Seasons.



And it's not too early to be creating things for Christmas.  I love this precious clothespin nativity from Christianity Cove.  My boys would have loved making this when they were small!


On a practical note, Laura from The Turquoise Home shared step-by-step instructions for installing closet shelves.  A great tutorial!



Becky Kopitzke from Time Out shared a milestone birthday--and some real wisdom--in her inspiring post about turning 40.  You'll want to read this no matter what your age!


These are just a few of my favorites.  Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party!  I'm so grateful for each person who links up each week. If you've been featured, feel free to grab the "I was featured" button (the code is right over in my sidebar).  I'd be so proud if you displayed it!


 
Now for this week's party!  Grace at Home is a place for you to share anything related to making your home a place of grace. I invite you to link posts about
  • DIY projects
  • decorating
  • recipes
  • hospitality
  • homemaking tips
  • parenting
  • marriage
  • faith
  • self-care
  • soul care
Whatever you do to make your home a place of grace, I'd like to hear about it.  Here's what I ask of you.  Please include the permalink to your post, not your blog's home page.  Please let people know that you've linked up.  No more than three posts per person, please.  And visit at least one of the other party participants--that's what really makes it a party!

Grace at Home No. 127


Welcome, friends!  It's time for the weekly Grace at Home party, where we celebrate God's grace and the ways we make our homes reflections of that grace.

There were so many wonderful entries last week.  Here are a few that caught my eye.

Sheila from Beyond the Portico created beautiful gift bags from flour sack dish towels for just 30 cents each!  Love this.


Marty from A Stroll Thru Life gives a tutorial for making and upholstering an ottoman.  Clever and so professional looking!


It's almost Halloween, and there were several great Halloween posts.

The LouLou Girls shared 10 Halloween party games.  Simple, great ideas!


Christianity Cove shared ideas 101 Halloween costumes for kids.  101!


Fabby from Fabby's Living shared the Halloween party she hosted for her granddaughters.  This makes me want to celebrate a holiday with Fabby!


Last but not least, Sharon from Sharing Sharing God offered some reflections on growing older in "60 is the New 40?".  Such a helpful post!

CD from CD's Country Living created a beautiful and thrifty fall tablescape:

Sunday Soul Care


I love Autumn!  In this season I can read the Book of Nature most clearly.  The beautiful colors of Fall nourish my soul as they remind me of the love and care of the Creator.


In what season does your soul find the most nourishment?

Grace at Home No. 125


Welcome to the Grace at Home party, where we pause to thank God for His great grace and to celebrate the ways we make our homes reflections of that grace.

Here are a few entries from last week's party that caught my eye:

I love pumpkins of all kinds.  Lately I've especially admired plush velvet ones.  And Patti from Old Things New wrote a tutorial for making these beauties!


Christy from Our Southern Home is so talented.  I love this Pottery Barn-inspired Diner sign she created!


A new blogger, Stacy from Anastasia Vintage, created beautiful end tables from Craig's List cast-offs.  Didn't she do a great job?  Pop over and tell her!


Heather from Encouraged at Home found a great use for the back of her pantry door.


Blogger Loves the King shared some great tips for memorizing scripture.  A life-changing discipline, for sure!
