Grace at Home No. 477


Friends, it's August! The dog days of summer are officially here, aren't they? 

And yet, even as we're at this very hot time of year, kids are starting back to some of the schools in this area. So we make it through the hot days, and look forward to the cooler days of autumn.

I'm so glad to welcome you to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace. Here are a few features from last week's party.

Have an old dresser that needs to be updated? Here's some inspiration from Angela at Simply Beautiful by Angela.





Are you trying to savor these last days of summer? Maybe you'd like to plan a family movie night (or nights)! Benjamin and Charlene from Hess Un-Academy share 100 family movies that won't drive adults crazy.

Looking for a quick dinner idea for a busy day? Kristy from Air Fryer Fanatics can help with this recipe for Shrimp Tacos.


Do you have an abundance of basil in your garden or your patio pots right now? I do, so I was glad to get this recipe for Fresh Basil Oil from Mary at Pots and Planes.


Last but not least, Michele Morin from Living Our Days shares some wisdom and a challenge for those of us who worship with a local church congregation.

Grace at Home No. 476


Well, my friends, we've almost made it through July. Around here that means that the hottest month of the year is nearly over, which is a relief. . . but it also means that the "lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer" are fading fast.

I'm always glad to see what y'all are up to, and here are a few highlights from last week's party.



If you're wanting more of a beachy look, check out this post from Niky at The House on Silverado.




If you'd prefer to stay inside and dream of other seasons, Christmas in July might be just what you need! Mary Jo from MasterPieces of My Life has some great crafting projects for you.


Do you have an antique sewing machine but don't know what to do with it? KMich Wedding Soiree Blog to the rescue! So many great ideas.




Do you struggle to find room to store bulky grill tools? You'll want to see this DIY organizer from Bill and Janet of A Life of Balance.


My boys and I love pepper jelly, but I've never made my own, so I was excited to get this recipe from Stacie at Counting Tomatoes.

Grace at Home No. 475


Hello, friends! I hope you're having a good summertime week and that you've managed to stay cool. That's been quite a job in my neck of the woods!

I'm glad to welcome you to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace. Here are some features from last week's party.

Do you have a bathroom that needs to be updated? Renae from Peacock Ridge Farm shows you how she transformed a bathroom into a lovely cottage style space.






Need a cool kids' activity for a hot summer afternoon? Try visiting an art museum! Kelli from 3 Boys and a Dog shows you how to make it fun for kids.


Peaches are ripe and delicious this time of year, so I was tickled to get this recipe for Honey-Whipped Ricotta Crostini from Jenny at Not Entirely Average. Beautiful and delicious looking!
