Grace at Home No. 182

Welcome to the first December edition of Grace at Home!  I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and that you're ready for a blessed Advent season.

Here are a few links from our last party that caught my eye:

Kim at Hunt and Host invited us to join her for An Artistic Advent--an online club that will include a beautiful crafting project each week of Advent.  She's just started, so there's still time to join!

Jessica at Lou Lou Girls created fun Christmas decorations from pallet wood:

Sweet Debbie from Debbie-Dabble has been crafting for Christmas and created these precious little snow houses from Dollar Tree finds--perfect for her Victorian Christmas decor!

Dayle from A Collection of Days shared a treasured family recipe: her mom's chocolate pudding. Look at this cute photo!

As for me, I'm just getting going on my Christmas decorating, but I'm resolved this year not to get caught up in Christmas comparison.  I'd love your thoughts on my post about Christmas decorating in real life.

Those are just a few of my favorites.  A big 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!
