Grace at Home No. 41--Welcome!

Welcome to the Grace at Home party!  This is where we pause to celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.  We're all recipients of God's grace, and we have the privilege of making our homes reflections of His care for us.  I think that's worth celebrating, don't you?

Last week's party was full of wonderful posts about starting the new year.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Jessica from Designers Sweet Spot shared one of the best out-with-the-old posts I've seen.  She gives a full tutorial for re-purposing your Christmas tree for the birds.  I'm guessing there are some happy birds in her snowy yard!

Leah at Far from Perfect Mamma reflected on what's she's learned in 2012--and what God revealed to her about her focus for 2013.

Curious look

Fabby shared one of her beautiful tablescapes--this one created for New Year's Day.  Don't you wish you could share a meal with her?

Marla and Steve at Always Nesting change their guest room for the seasons--such a lovely idea!  You'll want to check out their Ringing in the New Year Guest Room.

Barb at Second Chance to Dream compiled a list of 10 Printable 2013 Calendars.  Thank you, Barb!

And as a good reminder of how time flies, Nici at Posed Perfection created this "As Time Goes By" watch display--and she gives a full tutorial on how to make your own.

Thanks so much to everyone who joined the party!  I'm grateful for each of you.  If you've been featured this week (or in a previous week), feel free to grab the "I was featured" button.

Now for this week's party!  Grace at Home is a place for you to share anything related to making your home a place of grace. I invite you to link posts about
  • DIY projects
  • decorating
  • recipes
  • hospitality
  • homemaking tips
  • parenting
  • marriage
  • faith
  • self-care
  • soul care
Whatever you do to make your home a place of grace, I'd like to hear about it.

Please link to your specific blog post, not your home page, and include a link in your post back to this party.  And please visit some of the other links and leave some words of encouragement!

  5. Hi Richella!
    I pray you are already having a blessed, beautiful 2013!
    I love the guest bedroom you feature and the time goes by display posts!
    I have a trio of my hubby's watches that may just need to be displayed too.
    I wrote about the this season and decorating using light (candles and sparkly things) and Light (Jesus).
    Thank you for this party! I can't believe you've already done 41 of them!
    Love, Leslie
