Grace at Home No. 93

Welcome, friends!  Hope all is well in your world today.  Here's how things look in mine:

Snowstorms in this part of North Carolina are rare, so we've been relishing the wintry landscape.

Now it's time for the weekly Grace at Home party, where we pause to reflect upon the ways we make our homes a reflection of God's grace.

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

How pretty is this Valentine's tablescape created by Fabby from Fabby's Living?  So beautiful!

While I'm enjoying our rare snowstorm, this time of year I start longing for springtime, so I really like this vignette from Shirley at Housepitality Designs.

Spring Vignette

I always like finding new cleaning tips--and this list of uses for rubbing alcohol is great!  Thanks to Amanda Michelle from The Well-Groomed Home for sharing this.

I don't mind cooking dinner, but I'm terrible at meal planning--so I really appreciated this guide from Laura at The Turquoise Home.  Check it out!

The Average Girl's Guide to Monthly Meal Planning
Last but not least, I love "The Jesus Character" from at Calista at A House and Yard.  This is wonderful!

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!


  1. Richella, your home looks beautiful in the winter landscape! You should print that one out. :) Thanks for hosting and have a happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Richella, your home looks gorgeous in twilight and snow. Enjoy it. We've had snow almost continuously for the whole month, so I am getting weary of winter and love seeing the vignette with tulips. I can't wait to see the spring flowers poke through the soil and nod their lovely heads.
    May your week be filled with extraordinary God moments....

  3. Oh Richella, your home looks so beautiful with all that snow. We are researching retirement in NC because of it's subtropical climate but you've had more cold weather this year than we have here in the Seattle area! Anyhoo, thanks so much for hosting and much love to you on Valentine's Day my friend.

  4. Your house looks like a Christmas card! We have a lot of snow on the ground and received our last big snow (last winter) in May! I hope it's a little different this year. But it is beautiful!

  9. Oh my goodness, your home looks so gorgeous in its wintery setting, Richella! I truly wish I could send you some of what we are having here in AZ right now -- it's 79 degrees, and I'm wearing capris and a light tee-shirt with all the doors and windows open. I think Mother Nature is being unusually kind and plans to get even come July &! Thanks so much for hosting!
