Grace at Home No. 262

Hello, and welcome to this week's Grace at Home party!

This week I am in my own home with my fingers crossed that the air conditioning repairman will arrive soon. I thank God that we live in a multi-level home with more than one central air unit, but the unit for our main floor (which includes our living room, kitchen, eating areas, laundry, my husband's study, and my bedroom) is not working. Not good in North Carolina heat! But it's good for me to realize how thankful I should be for air conditioning.

Here are some links from last week's party that caught my eye:

Sweet Stacey from Poofing the Pillows gave us a tour of the kitchen in her new home. If you like to collect kitchen inspiration, you'll want to see this!

Debbie at Debbie-Dabble created a "beach tree" for late-summer decorating. You should see how she did it--great inspiration for how to decorate a tree. Debbie is just amazing--she must have
the busiest hands of anyone I know!

Tarah at Grandma's House DIY discovered a way to make her own perfume and she shared the simple recipe. Since I have all the ingredients on hand, I'd like to try this.

Jas from All That's Jas shared a recipe for hummus that looks so delicious and very easy. This girl knows her international foods!

Heather Bixler offered some great advice about prayer that I think you'll appreciate. Read her post "The Time to Pray Is Now."

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

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!
