Grace at Home No. 357

Hello, friends! Can you believe that we're well into November already? Since I live in the South, November is one of my favorite months of the year. Temperatures have finally fallen so that I can wear sweaters (yay!), Thanksgiving is approaching, and the Christmas frenzy hasn't kicked into full gear yet.

I'm glad you've taken a moment of your busy day to visit the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace. Here are some links from last week's party I thought you might enjoy.

If you've ever wanted a beautiful cornucopia for your Thanksgiving table, you'll love this handmade creation from Jennifer at The Everyday Farmhouse.

If you have some velvet pumpkins you've been using in your Fall decor, you can use them now to create a beautiful Thanksgiving centerpiece. Julie at My Wee Abode shows you how.

I don't like to start decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving, but it is nice to get a head start on Christmas crafts. I love this plaid plates made by Stephanie from The Style Safari--a simple DIY!

As joyful as the upcoming holidays are, they are also times that add to the burdens of persons suffering with depression. Dr. Michelle Bengtson from Hope Prevails offers practical advice about what NOT to say to someone who is depressed.

Tiffiney from Welcome Home Ministries is doing a series called "Because of Jesus, my home is. . . ." Check out this post: Because of Jesus, my home is welcoming (with an occasional hissy fit).

Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party! Now for this week's link-up. Here at the Grace at Home party, 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!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
