Grace at home: link up!

Today is the start of my new linky party: Grace at Home. I'm so glad you're here! This party is designed to showcase all the little things you do to make your home a place of grace.

This is what I see as I look out my front door today:


Looking back toward the house, including the basketball goal all ready for shooting hoops after dinner:



There's no way to compete with the beauty God has created, is there? Right now I'm just trying to bring a little of that beauty inside. Here's the new tablescape I created for our living room coffee table:


A coffee table book, a magnifying glass, and a little vignette. Very simple. My favorite thing is the bird's nest holding a candle.


I added a bit of lichen to the nest just because I like the color. See?


Simple touches of the outside brought indoors create grace at home, I think.

So how about you? What have you done lately to create grace in your home? This is the place for your link up a post about
  • DIY projects
  • decorating
  • recipes
  • hospitality
  • homemaking tips
  • parenting
  • marriage
  • faith
  • self-care
Whatever you do to make your home a place of grace, I'd like to hear about it. Please link up the permalink for your post, not your blog's home page. Please include a link back to the party so that others can join the fun. And please help me spread the word!

  2. Congratulations on your brand new linky party, Richella! Thank you so much for hosting. You're right - there's no competing with the show that the Lord puts on every Spring. I love the touches that you've added to your coffee table. I think the candle in the bird's nest is my favorite too!

  10. Thanks for hosting the party!

    Your yard looks so pretty right now. This is one of the few years that we enjoyed the deciduous Magnolia's blooms without having them ruined by a freeze. The pink one like you have is my favorite.
