Grace at Home No. 131

Welcome!  I'm so glad you're here for the Grace at Home party!

It's just one week until Thanksgiving.  I'm thankful today to share the news that my oldest son, Will, made it safely back from Nepal, where he trekked to the Base Camp of Mt. Everest.  It's so much fun to see your child fulfill a dream, isn't it?  But this mom was really glad for him to arrive home safely!

Last week's party included so many wonderful links that I had a hard time choosing features.  But here are a few that caught my eye.

Cindy from Dwellings: The Heart of Your Home shared her renovated kitchen.  Oh, my word.  This is jaw-dropping!

Lauren from Bless 'Er House transformed 1970's dining chairs into show stoppers.

Lisa from Texas Decor used a scrap piece of wood to create this adorable sign for over her pantry door.  Check out her easy tutorial!

Kim from Lou Lou Girls shared a bunch of family-friendly games for Thanksgiving.  Love these!

Diane from An Extraordinary Day created a beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape.  If you need inspiration for next Thursday's meal, you'll find it here!

As for me, I shared some memories and thoughts about social media in this post, "It's a Good Thing There Was No Pinterest Back Then."  I'd love to know your thoughts about this!

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!
