Grace at Home No. 257

Hello, friends, and welcome to this week's Grace at Home party! I'm so grateful you're here.

Here in North Carolina we're well into the hot-hot-hot part of summer. This week I've been working hard at a secret project--but completely indoors! It's too hot to do much of anything outside. What's it like in your neck of the woods?

Here are some features from last week's party:

Lindsey from Repurpose and Upcycle made the most of her living room with just a few farmhouse touches, including curtains made from dropcloths. You'll want to check out her post: these are the easiest-to-make curtains I've ever seen!

I was really interested in this post: Meg from Hello Farmhouse has never used the air conditioning system in her house. Now, she doesn't live in North Carolina, but she does live in an area with hot summers. I was inspired by her post to come up with some ways to reduce my own A/C bill!

Looking for a small project to work on these hot days? Check out this cute farmhouse sign made by Cathy from Vintage, Paint and More. I'd like to try something like this!

If you're like me, you're looking for cool dinner options these days. Pattie from Olla-Podrida shares a recipe for Thai Chicken Salad that looks amazing!

Have you found yourself held back by fears? You'll be inspired by this post from Michelle Bengtson: Five Truths to Defeat Fear.

    It's hot in WV too - climbing to the mid, upper 90s with higher humidity. Truly mid-summer.
    Thank you for hosting us.

  9. Ahhh - I am so glad I visited North & South Carolina last month when I did then, since the heat has now come to your area. We have had several weeks in a row of warm nice weather, (Unusual for WA state not to have a little rain mixed in, but we haven't - yay) so we are enjoying lake time and the warm temps by sitting outside well into the evening and relaxing. thanks for hosting
