Grace at Home No. 324


Welcome, friends! It's the middle of December, and we're all busy, busy, busy. . . so I'm grateful 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 highlights from last week's party.

First of all, some beautiful Christmas decor: Laura from Decor to Adore shares her lovely Christmas all spruced up for the holidays.


If you like Victorian Christmas decorations, you'll love visiting dear Debbie from Debbie-Dabble.


If you still have gift-wrapping to do, you'll appreciate all the gift-wrapping ideas from Michele at the Scrap Shoppe.


Need some last-minute gifts? Charlene from A Pinch of Joy shares 12 No-Bake Gifts from the Kitchen. These look absolutely delicious!


Planning a brunch for Christmas Day? You'll be glad to get this recipe for Creme BrulĂ©e French Toast Casserole from Marilyn at Marilyn's Treats. Doesn't it look delicious?


Or maybe you'd like to try this Christmas Rum Cake from Mareliz at Kocina de Pinay. Scrumptious!



Michele Morin at Living Our Days shares a poignant but truly inspirational piece about receiving the gift of Advent--the best I've read this year, I think. You won't want to miss this!



Last but not least, Angie from Keeping the Tie that Binds shares five ways keep Christ as the focus of Christmas.

Grace at Home No. 323


Hello, friends! A blessed Advent to you!

I hope you're doing well this first Thursday of December. 2018 has rushed by so quickly, I can scarcely believe that we're just weeks away from Christmas. It's good for me to pause amidst the hustle and bustle of this season to celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Here are some highlights from last week's Grace at Home party.

First, some eye candy from Pam at Everyday Living. Just look at the traditional Christmas beauty in her dining room!


For your own table, Debra from Shoppe No. 5 gives detailed instructions to make these adorable Santa napkin rings. Aren't they cute?


I love baking cookies at Christmastime, and I'm glad to get this recipe for Sesame Pretzel Cookie Bites from Kristin at Dizzy, Busy, and Hungry. They look melt-in-your-mouth delicious!


If you invite people into your home at Christmastime, you're likely to have some messes to clean up. Carpet stains can be tricky—but Chas from Chas' Crazy Creations shows how to remove even the worst carpet stains with a DIY carpet cleaner made of two simple household ingredients.


This time of year can be especially challenging if you have small children. Nicole from Mama of Many Blessings shares lots of ways to help kids understand the true meaning of Christmas.
