Grace at Home No. 103

Hello friends!  Can you believe it's May 1??  This year is flying by so quickly!

Today is Thursday, so it's time for our weekly Grace at Home party.  This is a party encouraging us to pause and be thankful for the grace of God--and to celebrate the ways we make our homes reflective of that grace.  So we celebrate all the ways we make our homes beautiful, welcoming, and loving!

Here are a few of my favorite posts from last week's party:

Diane from An Extraordinary Day shared a detailed tutorial on how to plant a window box garden--just in time for May flowers!

Danielle from D.D.'s Cottage and Design re-purposed a 100-year-old headboard: just look what she created:

Roxy from Living from Glory to Glory shared a wonderful way to organize your recipes.  This is a good reminder to me to make sure I'm collecting recipes in some form other than files on my computer.

Barb from Second Chance to Dream rounded up 15 Mother's Day crafts for kids--just in time!

Sweet Debbie from Debbie-Dabble shared the focal wall in her kitchen.  You might think this photo was taken in an old farmhouse, but no!  Debbie doesn't allow the fact that lives in a 1970's-built townhouse stop her from making her home the "Country Victorian" place she wants to be.  She's a great example!

These are just a few of my favorites.  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!


  1. Richella....thank you so very much for featuring my window box/container gardening tutorial. Container gardening is one of my favorite things to do and a number of years ago I had fun giving demos for garden clubs and teaching community ed classes in container gardening. Having moved around a bit since, I'm not doing that any it's fun to "teach" from the blog. ;)
    I'm sure you'll be planting before me. (It's still pretty cool here in MI.) Hope you have fun creating containers around your house.

    Happy May Day!!
