Grace at Home No. 442


Welcome, friends! Honestly, it seems as if I blinked and it's mid-October. I've heard many times that the passage of time seems to speed up the older you get, and I believe that's true.

I'm so glad you're here for the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. Here are some highlights from last week's party.

Now that we're well into Autumn, have your decorated your home for the season? Denise from My Home of All Seasons shares her method of decorating her front porch.


Are you looking for quick ways to update a room in your home? Renae from Peacock Ridge Farm transformed her dining room using peel-and-stick wallpaper, and she shares instructions on how to do it for yourself.

Want to update your bathroom but don't have much to spend? Julie from My Wee Abode shares how she changed the look of the dated bathroom in her apartment. So many wonderful, cost-effective ideas?


As the weather grows chillier, no doubt we'll be keeping our windows closed more and more. Kathryn from The Dedicated House reminds us that we need indoor plants for indoor air quality. 


As prices on most goods have risen lately, do you find yourself need some help in saving on groceries? Lazy Budget Chef can help, such as with this post that explains how to shop for loss leaders.


Need a hot and filling dinner option that takes very little hands-on time? Kristy from Mommy Hates Cooking shares her Slow-Cooker Chili recipe.


As the Autumn and Winter holidays are approaching, there are lots of yummy-looking recipes floating around. But what if your health demands that you're trying to lose weight these days? Wendy from The Inspired Eater shares some tips for keeping things "small and sane."


Last but not least, Barbara Harper shares some sobering but also encouraging thoughts from having attended a memorial service. This will make you think about how you're living your days.

Grace at Home No. 440


Hello, friends! I am so glad to welcome you to the Grace at Home party. 

Years ago, link parties were a huge part of blogging. These days, they've faded a bit in importance, but I still like them. It's my pleasure to host this one, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes and spheres of influence places of grace and beauty.

Here are some highlights from last week's party.

Now that we're actually into the season of Autumn, are you decorating with pumpkins? I am!

Julie at My Wee Abode developed a detailed tutorial for creating velvet pumpkins.


For a more rustic look, Carol from Blue Sky at Home shared detailed instructions for creating these darling rope and twine pumpkins.


And Shelley at Calypso in the Country came up with a simple method for painting buffalo plaid pumpkins, and she shows us how step by step.


Need a fun accent piece for your Fall decor? Paula from Sweet Pea teaches you how to make this cute wood bead garland.


Even if you're not crafty, you can create one of these pretty Fall trees. Penny from Penny's Vintage Home shows you how!


And if you want to create a pretty mantelscape for the season, Denise at My Home of All Seasons will show you how in six easy steps.
