Grace at Home No. 88

Hello, friends!  Every blessing on your day today!

I've been under the weather this past week, but I'm so glad that it's now time for our weekly Grace at Home party.  I thrive on this weekly reminder to savor God's grace and to celebrate the ways we make our homes reflections of that grace.

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

Glenda from Fondly, Glenda inspired me with her post "Why I Love, Really Love, January."  I needed to read this one!  I'll bet you'll find it inspiring, too.

Laura from The Turquoise Home showed us a fun and practical way to re-use and upcycle old candles.  I need to do this with my leftover Christmas candles!

Upcycle Old Candles {find out all the details at}
Audrey from Neverending Decorating created a great ottoman from an old table.  What a wonderful way to re-purpose!

Quite a few people wrote about their resolutions for the new year.  Debbie from Debbie-Dabble, one of the sweetest ladies in the blogosphere, shared her one little word for 2014.

Bernadette from Barefoot Hippie Girl is doing a 31-day series this month: "New Year, Renewed You."  Looks like a winner!

Thank you to everyone who joined the party!  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 (the code is right over in my sidebar).  I'd be so proud if you displayed it!


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.  Here's what I ask of you.  Please include the permalink to your post, not your blog's home page.  Please let people know that you've linked up.  No more than three posts per person, please.  And visit at least one of the other party participants--that's what really makes it a party!
