Grace at Home No. 48

Welcome to the Grace at Home party!  Today is the last day of February.  Can you believe that one sixth of 2013 is already past?  The time flies by so quickly.  I'm glad for this time to pause, give thanks for the grace God gives to us, and celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace--for our families, for our friends and neighbors, and for ourselves!  

Here are a few of my favorites from last week's party.

If you're ready for spring, you'll enjoy these DIY (free!) cherry blossom branches created by Nici at Posed Perfection.  Aren't they pretty?

Check out this lovely spring mantelscape created by sweet Carol from An Oasis in the Desert.  Simple and pretty!

You can count on Denise at Denise in Bloom for good cottage decorating advice, and you'll definitely want to check out her 39 Ways to Decorate with Plates.

Melissa at Daisy Mae Belle is another decor champion, and she's got three daughters who are following in their mother's footsteps!  Look at this creative use of a ladder in her daughter's room.

For those cold days that still await before spring finally arrives, check out this recipe for BBQ meatballs from The Ferrell Boys and Me.

For dessert, how about scrumptious Bread Pudding?  Shandy from Aprons 'n' Pearls gives step-by-step directions.  My husband would love this!

Or how about these Delightful Orange Scones from Betty at Southern Grace? I can't wait to try these!

I'm so grateful for each person who links up each week. If you've been featured this week (or in a previous week), feel free to grab the "I was featured" button from my sidebar.  I'd be so proud if you displayed it!
