Grace at Home No. 223

Hello, friends, and welcome to this week's Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Here are some posts from last week that caught my eye.

If you're like me, you admire all the home decor made out of barn wood--but you have no source of wood with that gorgeous patina. No problem: Kim at Hunt and Host shows us how to make our own--and then how to make a cool tray from the faux aged wood. So cool!

Jolena at While I Linger shared a wonderfully detailed tutorial for making a wreath. If you've ever wanted to try your hand at creating your own decorative wreath, you'll want to read this post--she shows every step!

Once again burlap is high on the Fall decorating list. Jennifer from Noting Grace showed us how to make a beautiful burlap garland. I want to try this!

Lynn at Quaker Hill Farm didn't want to get rid of the stump of a majestic old tree--so she created a gorgeous fountain in it! Isn't this lovely?

Karmen from Chairs from the Curb is joining the 31 Day challenge. You'll want to read her post on being self-aware--so much food for thought!

As for me, I learned a good lesson last week from an unlikely source--the weather. I'd love to know what you think!

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.  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.  Note that if you link a post here, you are giving me permission to share your post, including a photo.  And visit at least one of the other party participants--that's what really makes it a party!
