Grace at Home No. 290

Hello, friends! It's the middle of March! How did these first weeks of March go by so quickly?

We've been on "Spring" break this week, but if you follow me on Instagram (I'd love to see you there!), you know it hasn't been too springy for me.

Oh, well. Spring is coming, I know!

Meanwhile, here are some links from last week's party I thought you'd enjoy.

Jen at Noting Grace transformed a plain-Jane pantry into a pretty farmhouse space.

St. Patrick's Day is just two days away! If you're looking for a fun and easy treat, you might want to try this "Lepre-corn" from Pattie at Olla-Podrida.

If you're ready to decorate your home for Easter, you'll be inspired by the Easter touches Penny from Penny's Vintage Home has added to her house.

I was tickled to get this recipe for "Preacher Cake" from the LouLou Girls. Apparently this is an old recipe that relies on items you'll likely have on hand so that you can whip up something yummy when the preacher is coming to visit! (Anyone else remember the days of preachers making home visits?)

As for me, I had a rough week last week, which caused me to reflect upon how grateful I am for God's redemption. I'd love for you to read "Hanging on to Hope" and let me know what you think.

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

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. Yup. It's definitely a struggle to feel spring-y thoughts this year. Thanks be to God that we don't need tulips and green grass to celebrate resurrection!

  6. It hasn't been too springy for us either! Thanks for hosting and enjoy the rest of your week!

  7. You look so cute hanging out of that jeep! I wish I could send you some AZ sunshine to warm you all up. I do remember visiting preachers. My grandparents were very involved in their church and would host Revival Meetings in a tent set up on their property. The young preacher who usually came, almost always brought his wife and little ones, and they would stay at my grandparents' home. He pretty much adored my grandmother and always said she was "The Best Cook" in the world! He was very kind, extremely charismatic and charming....and he could preach the word of God like no body's business. I remember being totally mesmerized when he was preaching, and I was only 7 or 8 years old. Wonderful and happy memories.

    Thanks so much for hosting!
    Warm hugs, Carol

  10. Hi Richella! I'm so late decorating for Easter this year. The posts that you've highlighted may just be the thing to help me get inspired to begin? And Yes, I remember the days when preachers visited. :-) Have a blessed week!

  13. Thanks for the feature! That popcorn does not stay around long,and neither do the Shamrock Shakes. I'm sure that you are weary of winter, but hang on! Spring is coming, and let's face it, by early August we'll all be longing for fall. :-)
