Grace at Home No. 288

Welcome, friends, and Happy MARCH! Can you believe that February's over? It seems that we were just celebrating New Year's Day and now, poof! It's nearly Spring!

I'm grateful that you're here for the Grace at Home party. Here are some highlights from last week's party.

I'm a big fan of botanical prints, but they can be pricey. Lindsey from Repurpose and Upcycle figured out a way to make them very inexpensively, and she's offering free botanical prints for us to print. Aren't these pretty?

For me, springtime is the time for cleaning and organizing, so I was glad to see how Jen from Noting Grace has organized her kitchen by dividing it into different zones. She opens all her cupboards and drawers so that we can see just what she means.

If you need a little help in the spring cleaning department, you'll want to check out this post from Joy at Artful Homemaking. She includes a free spring cleaning printable.

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, so I was glad to see this adorable button shamrock created by Danielle from A Sprinkle of Joy. She gives full instructions for making your own.

And for more St. Patrick's Day inspiration, you'll want to check out all the cookie recipes from Ann at Duct Tape and Denim. Don't these look delicious?

Katy from Single Yet Engaged shared some hard-won wisdom about the different seasons of life. I think you'll be encouraged by this post.

As for me, I was touched by the fact that this week marks the 15th anniversary of the death of one of my heroes: Fred Rogers. I'd love for you to read what I learned from Mr. Rogers.

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!
