Grace at Home No. 230

Greetings! Welcome to this week's Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace. I'm so glad you're here.

First, some features from last week's party.

Beautifully decorated spaces can be found all around the blogosphere right now. In case you missed it, check out this lovely family room from Lynda at Gates of Crystal.

Jaclyn from One Thousand Oaks showed us how to make a button garland for a Christmas tree. I love this idea! Old-fashioned charm is one of my Christmas love languages.

Looking for fun gift ideas? You might want to try making a themed gift basket or box. Check out these step-by-step instructions for making an ice cream sundae gift box from Eileen at Just Measuring Up. This will get your creative juices flowing!

I was glad to see this recipe from Kathryn at The Dedicated House. I grew up loving this cherry cream cheese pie, but I haven't had it in years--now I want to make it for my family!

As for me, I've been trying to take a simpler approach to Christmas this year. I tend to get caught up in the comparison game, and this year I'm fighting back. I'd love to know what you think about this. Read "The Thief of Joy at Christmastime" here.

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!


  1. Love that living room. I'm going to visit now.
    Thank you sweet Richella for your lovely comment on my guest room reveal. Now I'm sharing part 2, bathroom and walking closet. I love it now, as really, since the girls left it has been mine.
    Have a happy Christmas season and thanks for the party.
