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.

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!
