Hi friends! Welcome! I'm grateful you're here.
Can you believe that today is the final Thursday in July? That's amazing, isn't it? I for one can scarcely take that in. You may remember that I'm writing a book for InterVarsity Press (you read all about it here, if you like), and by this time next week, Lord willing, I will have turned in my manuscript!!! (I'm not a person who uses lots of exclamation points, but the prospect of getting this manuscript turned in calls for them!)
Y'all, I would really, really appreciate your prayers as I enter these final days of writing. I won't lie: this is some of the hardest work I've ever done, but the finish line is in sight.
Meanwhile, YOU have been up to some good things lately! I'm delighted to pause and celebrate with you all the ways we make our homes places of grace. Here are some great examples from last week's party.
I know a lot of you appreciate all the little touches that add up to farmhouse decor. Some of those touches can be awfully expensive, though. Lisa from Fresh Vintage shows how you can create a "vintage" stoneware crock for next to nothing.
Debra from Shoppe No. 5 provided a step-by-step tutorial for creating this cool coat rack from a piece of fence board. Isn't this cool?
I'm always looking for quick and easy dinner ideas, especially these days. So I was glad to see this lemon garlic shrimp linguine from Jas at All That's Jas. Doesn't it look delicious?
Michele Morin really got me to thinking with this post about deliberate acts of hospitality. You'll want to read this!
And here's a great one for me this week: Donna Reidland shares 10 secrets to finishing well. Excellent!
A big thank you to everyone who joined the last party! I'm so grateful for each person who links up. If you've been featured, feel free to grab the "I was featured" button. I'd be delighted if you'd like to display it.
