Grace at Home No. 268


Hello, friends, and welcome to the first Grace at Home in the autumn! Here in North Carolina, it's hard to believe that the Autumnal Equinox is past: the weather forecast today is 91 degrees! But we're clinging to hope that the mercury will soon match the calendar.

Here are some links from last week's party that caught my eye.

Blogs abound with fall home tours right now, and I think you'll really like the vintage-inspired fall decor from Paula at Sweet Pea. 


If you're like me and you're still working on your fall decor, you'll enjoy seeing these DIY twine-wrapped acorns from Cathy at Vintage, Paint and More. 


If you love the fall treats at Starbucks, you might be interested to see this collection of copycat recipes from Joy at Artful Homemaking--including a pumpkin spice latte copycat!


I think we're all hyper-aware that this season often brings with it natural disasters. Even as we think about how we might help our neighbors in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and California, it's wise to prepare for the possibility of facing a natural disaster right at home. Check out these disaster preparedness tips from Kimberly at The Treasured Bookshelf.


Here's a really clever DIY project for you: a sofa table charging station from Tarah at Grandma's House DIY.


You'll find inspiration for dealing with problems--even problems that can't be fixed--from Heather Bixler.

Grace at Home No. 267


Oh, friends, happy Fall! Can you believe that it's already time for the Autumnal Equinox? It seems as though summer just began, and now here we are racing into Autumn. I'm sorry that I've not published anything here for the last few weeks. I have much to share in the coming days, though!

I'm glad you're here for this week's Grace at Home party. Here are some links from last week's party I thought you'd enjoy.

Lindsey from Repurpose and Recycle discovered how to refinish wood furniture using just two household ingredients. I'm going to try her method.


Joy from Artful Homemaking rounded up 12 creative ways to decorate for Fall using items from the dollar store. Lots of inspiration!


Sweet Carol from An Oasis in the Desert has been fighting cancer this past year. Now she's decorating her house for Fall and giving us advice for what to do when we're worried or stressed.


It's time for all things pumpkin spice, and Jamie from Anderson + Grant shared a recipe for Pumpkin Molasses Cookies I'd really like to try. Don't these look delicious?


For a different kind of pumpkin spice treat, I'd like to try this recipe for Pumpkin Spice Liqueur from Pattie at Olla Padrida.

Grace at Home No. 266


Hello, friends, and welcome to this week's Grace at Home party! I hope you've had a good week. I know that many of you were affected by Hurricane Irma this past week, and I want you to know we've all been praying for you.

Here are some links from last week's party I thought you might enjoy.

Hayden from Two Paws Farmhouse created this corrugated metal awning in lieu of curtains for her kitchen window. Isn't it smashing?


Angela from Simply Beautiful made over some foam pumpkins from the dollar store to create these fabulous fall decorations.


For a fun fall look, Victoria from Dazzle while Frazzled crafted some colorful pumpkins from fabric scraps.


If you're looking for a good pound cake recipe, Marilyn from Marilyn's Treats has you covered. She shares 10 decadent pound cake recipes.


If you're in need of a good laugh, you need to read "A Chipmunk, a Cardinal, and So Many Rats" from Karmen at Chairs from the Curb.  Hilarious!


And if you're in need of some calming for your soul, you'll appreciate "Anxious for No Thing" from Michelle Bengtson at Hope Prevails.

Grace at Home No. 265


Hello there and happy September! I can hardly believe how fast this year is flying. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I celebrated my birthday this week. The years go by so fast, don't they?

Thank you for being here for the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace. Here are some links from last week's party I thought you might enjoy.

Leslie at From Playdates to Parties shared six fall wreaths to make. Are you ready to decorate your home for autumn?

I'm always looking for organizational tips, and I appreciated this post from Carol at Comfort Spring. Check out this great idea for storing boxes of foil and plastic wrap.


Magic cookie bars are a favorite at our house, but I've never thought of changing the recipe. Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine has inspired me to try something new.


Stacy from Ordinary Days, Extraordinary Life inspired us with her post about time management.
