Grace at Home No. 296

Hello, hello! I'm glad you're here for the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Here are some highlights from last week's party.

Jenny from Refresh Living made a desk from the bottom of a vintage baker's cabinet. Isn't this awesome?

Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof created a wall-mounted drop-front desk for her daughter's room. Her post includes detailed step-by-step instructions for making your own!

Mother's Day is fast approaching, and Victoria from Dazzle while Frazzled shared a fun idea for a Mother's Day gift: a photo vase made from a tin can!

If you're looking for good ways to update a home on a budget, you'll appreciate this post from Margo at Joyful Homemaking.

Cinco de Mayo is next week (what??), and if you're looking for good Mexican recipes, you might enjoy this easy fajita recipe from Sarah at Bombshell Bling.

Pam at A New Lens shared some powerful thoughts about the importance of relationships with different kinds of people. I really appreciated this post.

As for me, I shared a review of a new parenting book (a genre that doesn't usually interest me, to be honest). You'll want to take a look at First Ask Why by Shelly Wildman. I'm giving away a copy, and you can enter the giveaway by leaving a comment here.

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!


  1. You and I are of one mind on parenting books in general and Shelly's book in particular. I got so burned out on "advice from perfect people" that I quit reading parenting books for years, but Shelly's is of a different ilk. And I'm also enjoying Catherine McNiel's book on the mothering life! Hoping to pull my thoughts on that one together and do a round up post on a selection of books for mothers in time for Mother's Day. . . we'll see how it goes!
