Grace at Home No. 94

Hello, friends!  I hope you're having a wonderful week.  Welcome to this week's Grace at Home party, where we pause to celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

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

There were lots of Valentine's Day posts, of course.  The one I liked best was written by Debby from My Favorite Things, who shared some beautiful wisdom inspired by--of all things--candy conversation hearts.  You need to see this!

The hilarious Kari at A Grace Full Life created a cheerful little laundry room--and you really should see what she started with!

Tammy from The Colored Door used a small section of wall space to make a Kids' Command Center.  This is wonderful!

Tammy from One More Time Events admired some pricey mother of pearl candles--and made some for herself by recycling materials she already had.

Elizabeth from Beauty Observed shared the recipe for these gorgeous Cranberry Bliss bars.  Don't they look delicious?

As for me, I created some beauty for our home by making a watercolor portrait of our house, and I wrote out step-by-step instructions for you to make your own!

Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party!  I'm so grateful for each person who links up each week. If you've been featured, 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!

  5. Richella, what a surprise to find that you featured my candy hearts post this week! Thank you so much! Again, I will tell you that the "watercolor" you created of your home is fabulous.
