Grace at Home No. 365

The title of today's post startled me.

365 Grace at Home parties? What?

Blogging has changed so much since I started this party. In the early years, blogging was a way to "visit" with others. Then it became a place for bloggers to showcase what they were doing and for readers to get new ideas. Then it became a way for some bloggers to make money.

These days it's a hybrid of all of those, but what I like best about blogging is that it takes us "behind closed doors," so to speak. We invite one another into our homes virtually, and blog posts can be long enough to get more than the tiny snapshot of Instagram allows.

So here we are, still celebrating all the ways we make our homes places of grace, and I'm glad you're here! Here are some of my favorite links from last week's party.

If you want to add charm to your living room or den, you'll want to see how Jamie from Anderson + Grant built this beautiful faux fireplace. Yes, I said "faux"--but it sure looks real, doesn't it? Jamie includes full instructions for building your own.

Want to create some Valentine's Day decor? Check out these cute signs from Pamela at DIY Vibes. She includes free printables to make it easy for you to create your own!

Want to see how someone pulls out all the stops to decorate for Valentine's Day? Then you'll enjoy visiting with sweet Debbie from The Debbie-Dabble Blog.

If you're wondering "Where is winter?" you'll be glad to see this post from Amy at A Day of Small Things for some winter decor ideas.

Ever wonder why so many of our new year's resolutions end up being dead ends? Check out my post about gaining a new perspective.

Need some words of wisdom about trusting God? Read this post from Donna from Soul Survival.

Just looking for some inspiration for this new year? Check out this post from Andrea at Living on Cloud Nine.

Thank you to everyone who joined last week's link-up!
