Now, I love to give parties. For just about any occasion. Birthdays? Certainly. New Year's? Of course. Super Bowl? You bet. Want to watch an old Christmas movie? This is the place. Star Trek was released on DVD? Beam me up. These are some of the parties I've hosted in my house during the last six months.
Recently, a friend of mine was here in my home for a party. She left the party to use the powder room, and when she returned she remarked, "I love snooping around other people's houses, looking for those special touches they've added. It's fun to get ideas from other people."
Later, I was thinking about what she'd said, and I realized that it would be fun if we could do that here in Blogland. I love the way blogging gives us glimpses into one another's homes.
So on Friday, May 7, won't you join me here at Imparting Grace for a linky party dedicated to "those special touches"?
What special touches have you added to your place? Do you always have candles burning in the windows? Do you keep fresh flowers on the kitchen table? Do you do something special to make your family comfortable or to make your guests feel welcome?
Write a post telling us about the little things you've done to make your place feel like home, then share those at my party!
"Those Special Touches" party at Imparting Grace
Friday, May 7
Linky will be up at 10:00 P.M. Eastern on Thursday, May 6
I'd love for you to grab my party button and help spread the word!
I'll confess that I'm a little nervous about this party. I've hosted lots and lots of parties in real life, but never a linky party. I keep thinking of that line from Field of Dreams: "If you build it, they will come."
Will you? Will you join me? Please say yes!
