Grace at Home No. 358

The weeks fly by, and now we're just one week away from Thanksgiving! This year, I'm especially grateful for YOU. And today I'm glad you're here for the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Here are some highlights from our last party.

I was thrilled to find some inspiration for Thanksgiving table settings! (If you're like me, you won't set your table for Thanksgiving until next week!) Check these out:

Thanksgiving centerpiece in a dough bowl from Pam at Everyday Living

Several Thanksgiving table ideas including this one made from thrift store finds from Marty at A Stroll Thru Life

Casual setting for the kitchen table from Shelley at Calypso in the Country

Free printable Thanksgiving place cards from Linda at It All Started with Paint

Of course, on the days after Thanksgiving, some of us will be doing our Christmas shopping. If you prefer to shop online, read this post about safe shopping from Carol at Comfort Spring.

If creating homemade gifts is your goal, you'll be glad to get these step-by-step directions for making vanilla extract from Joy at Artful Homemaking.

I'll be honest with you: I have no trouble cooking Thanksgiving dinner, because I know exactly what I'm going to make. But everyday dinners? Now, THAT I struggle with! If you also struggle with meal planning, you'll be glad to read how Jennifer from The Everyday Farmhouse does it. SO helpful!

Now, in the flurry of planning for Thanksgiving, if you find your soul in need of some encouragement, you'll be glad to read Scott Bengtson's thoughts on why Thanksgiving is the best holiday. 

Thank you to everyone who joined our last party! Now for this week's link-up. Here at the Grace at Home party, I invite you to link posts about
