Dear friends, welcome! 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.
I'm alternately horrified and thrilled that today is the last Thursday in October. Horrified because the year is passing so quickly and especially because the first round of edits on my book (Mythical Me: Finding Freedom from Constant Comparison) are due to my publisher one week from today, November 1. So much work to do! And thrilled because this time next week I'll be turning those edits in and I can check that project off my list. It's been a long time coming, that's for sure. I'd surely appreciate your prayers for this last intensive week.
Meanwhile, I'm glad to see the ways you're making your homes places of grace. Here are some links from last week that caught my eye.
It's nearly time to take away the jack-o-lanterns, but I for one still want my home decorated for Autumn. Debra from Shoppe No. 5 created a leaf garland out of leather. Isn't this a pretty fall decoration?
If you'll be carving a jack-o-lantern this year, you might enjoy this recipe for honey roasted pumpkin seeds from Dagmar at Dagmar's House. Don't they look delicious?
If you're hosting a dinner party this Fall, you'll be inspired by this gorgeous Autumn table setting from Fabby at Fabby's Living.
If you'd like to get a head start on creating Christmas decor, check out these darling paper tassels, courtesy of Jennifer at Celebrating Everyday Life.
If you're in the mood for some Fall baking, I can promise that you'll never find a pumpkin bread recipe better than this one.
And if you need some food for your soul, you'll appreciate these wise words from Karen at Growing Together in Grace and Knowledge.
A big thank you to everyone who joined last week's 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.
