Grace at Home No. 308

Hi friends! I'm so glad you're here for this week's Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Here are some links from last week's party that caught my eye.

Just in time for back to school, Victoria from Dazzle While Frazzled shared some cute DIY teacher gifts. It's nice to start the year with a little gift for teachers, and these won't break the bank.

Now that it's back-to-school time, I'm really looking forward to decorating for fall. Shannon from Homemade Lovely shares 12 easy-to-make fall crafts to get you started.

I'm definitely looking forward to fall, but there's still a lot of summer to go around here. If you live in an area plagued by mosquitoes (I surely do!), you'll appreciate these tips for repelling mosquitoes from Vicki at FiveSpot Green Living.

If you're considering ways to update your kitchen on a budget, you'll be interested in this post from Jenny at Refresh Living. I had no idea you could place an online order for new doors for your cabinets.

My herb garden is producing loads of basil right now, so I was glad to see this post from Lois at Walking on Sunshine.

Dr. Michelle Bengtson shared a really good reflection on the fact that we're never alone, including 15 Bible verses to remember. An excellent post.

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.

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!

  4. Thank you for featuring my post on freezing basil this week!

  5. Thanks for sharing, Richella! Going to check out the fall crafts!
