Grace at Home No. 118

Welcome, welcome!  It's time for the weekly Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes full of grace, love, and beauty.  All these good things are gifts from God, and we are privileged to make our homes reflections of those gifts.

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

Shenita from Embellishments by SLR turned her parents' old home into a college home for her daughters.  Read about how she created this

from this--on a tight budget!

Carol from An Oasis in the Desert shares some simple packing tips that are just wonderful!  I have a lot of travel coming up; I'm going to be using this post as a reference!

Debbie from Debbie-Dabble shared the decor in her kitchen.  If you like country or Victorian decor, you'll love Debbie's place--and you're sure to love Debbie, a precious woman and collector extraordinaire!

Kendra from Joy in our Home created a cute erasable calendar--from paint chips!  Perfect for back-to-school time!

Barb from Second Chance to Dream shares the #1 thing kids need as they go back to school.

There's been a great deal of talk about depression following the heartbreaking death of Robin Williams.  Michelle at Considering Grace shares from her own experience 5 ways to know if you're depressed.  A helpful and hopeful post!

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!
