Grace at Home No. 135

Welcome, friends!  I'm so glad you're here.

The days are flying by so quickly, and Christmas is just one week from today.  Wow!

Today will be our last Grace at Home party of 2014.  Since next Thursday is Christmas Day, I know you all have better things to do than to be online.

Question: would you enjoy participating in a Grace at Home party on New Years Day, or should we just start back up on January 8?  I'd love your opinion.

Now for a few of my favorites from last week's party:

Sherry from No Minimalist Here shared her Christmas Home Tour.  Lovely!

If you need something simple yet elegant you could do to make a big Christmas impact in your house, check out this post from Shenita at Embellishments by SLR.  So pretty!

Planning a holiday dinner party?  Patti at Pandora's Box shares an entire menu and recipes.  I may just copy the whole thing!

Kids are getting out of school this week!  If you need some simple and lovely Christmas crafts, here are some great ideas from at Kimberly at LouLou Girls.

And Diane from An Extraordinary Day shares a thoughtful post called "Cleaning House for Christmas."  You'll be blessed by reading this!

Oh, and if you missed it, I'd love for you to take my Christmas home tour.  What I'd really love is to have you all come here for live tour and a Christmas party.  Wouldn't that be fun?

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!
