It's October, friends! 2020 has been the most difficult year many of us have ever faced, but we've made it through three quarters of the year. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
I'm so grateful to be here with you today. I spent last week driving hundreds of miles to visit my family. (Everyone I visited has been extremely careful about taking all precautions against COVID-19, as have I, and I was painstakingly cautious on the drive to visit them.) Here's just one snapshot from my visit:
I now realize just how hungry I was for face-to-face fellowship with loved ones.
Now for some highlights from our last Grace at Home party.
Autumn is finally, officially here, so my eye was caught by some beautiful Fall decorating.
Have you admired antique ladders used for display? (My sister uses one in a bathroom as a towel rack; it's charming!) Jennifer from The Everyday Farmhouse gives you step-by-step instructions for making one from scrap lumber.
By the way, while you're at Jennifer's, you should take advantage of her beautiful, free Fall printables. This is just one of several she offers.
Need some inspiration for decorating your home for Fall? You'll enjoy this home tour from Paula at Virginia Sweet Pea.
I love using real pumpkins in my Autumn decorating, but it's frustrating if the pumpkins spoil before the season is over. I was so glad to get some tips for making your pumpkins last from Niky at The House on Silverado.
If Autumn has provided you with an abundance of apples, you'll be glad to have this recipe for applesauce made in an Instant Pot from Joy at Artful Homemaking.
Finally, if you're needing some encouragement for your soul, I urge you to read this post from Nylse at Life Notes. Listen: this is a guest post written by an 18-year-old girl named Xariah. It'll encourage you and give you hope for the future to read Xariah's words!
Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party!
