Grace at Home No. 360

Hello and welcome to the Grace at Home party! I'm so glad you're here to celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Preparations for Christmas are now well underway for most of us, though I've talked with a number of people who feel as I do that the late Thanksgiving has made the Advent season seem rushed. Christmas is now less than two weeks away!

Here are some posts from last week's party that are sure to inspire and help you as you continue getting ready for Christmas.

Need a few more ornaments for your tree or to give as gifts? Check out these darling grain sack ornaments made by Joy at Artful Homemaking.

Do you love vintage Christmas decor like I do? Then you'll want to see the porch decorations at Paula's house. Check out Sweet Pea here!

Need a feast for your eyes? Read about the Christmas decorations in the kitchen at Penny's Vintage Home. 

I've been wanting to try a couple of new Christmas recipes, and I think I'll start with this peanut butter and chocolate fudge combination from Erin at Delightful E Made.

As for me, I've been thinking about how I tend to try to create the perfect Christmas. . . and this year I'm trying to do things differently. I'd love to know what you think!

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
  • DIY projects
  • decorating
  • recipes
  • hospitality
  • homemaking tips
  • parenting
  • marriage

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!

  1. Richella, I love that quote, "God made us to bless, not impress." Thanks for hosting. December blessings!

  2. Thank you so much for featuring my grain sack Christmas ornaments! They were a lot of fun to make. Christmas blessings to you!

  3. Richella, thank you for hosting today. Your post on blessing vs impressing goes hand in hand with the parting link I shared in my city style open house post today. It's about encouraging us to stop trying to be perfect. The clear message in that article is that Christmas is about God interrupting our plans. In our downsize this year, I let go of a lot of the materials things of Christmas, and hope to hold onto what's important. Thank you for always being the gentle cheerleader that you are in helping us. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
