Grace at Home No. 269

Hello, friends, and welcome to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. I'm glad you're here.

What a week it has been! With all the horrible news these days, it's easy to feel that such things as a blog party may be trite or even meaningless, but I don't think that's true. God has given us a beautiful world to live in. The actions of evil people may mar the picture, but they don't change the fact that God loves beauty. God created us to love beauty, too, and to join his work to make this world a lovely, flourishing place. 

To that end I'm happy to share some great links from last week's party.

Laura at Decor to Adore lives in a part of the country that's not yet enjoying cool temperatures, but she's developed some great ways to add fall touches to her front porch even when it's hot outside.

Lori at Dining Delight shows us how she created beautiful fall decor for her coffee table.

Jody at Southern Seazons outdid herself in decorating her mantel for Fall. Take a look!

No one does more to decorate her home for the seasons than Debbie at Debbie-Dabble. Check out her autumn elegance tree.

And if traditional Fall colors aren't really your thing, you might want to check out the kitchen at Penny's Vintage Home.

Leslie at Journey to Imperfect offers five action steps to see you through misunderstandings. A great post for this busy season.

As for me, I shared a Fall Home Tour, and I'd love for you to take a peek!

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!
