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. 


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!
