Grace at Home No. 411

Hello, friends!

Groundhog Day is now behind us, and if Punxsutawney Phil is right, winter will be hanging on for a long time. I heard from a young mom yesterday that she is weary—winter weary, Covid-weary, homeschool-weary—and I think most of us understand her feelings intimately.

So now, more than ever, I want to celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Here are some highlights from last week's Grace at Home party I thought you'd enjoy.

Need to spruce up a small space in your home? Check out this powder room from Libbie at A Life Unfolding—it's decorated with peel-and-stick wallpaper. (I'd never even heard of this product, but now I'm intrigued!)

Looking for a big project to tackle this winter? Hannah from Handmade Weekly provides a full tutorial for making these nightstands. Can you believe she built these herself? Follow her instructions to build your own!

Doing some de-cluttering and housecleaning these days? I am! So I was glad to see this idea for creating a plastic bag container from Chas at Chas' Crazy Creations.

Want to do a little Valentine's Day decorating? You might like to see this DIY wreath from Niky at The House on Silverado. She explains how to make one for yourself.

Denise at My Home of All Seasons provides some cute Valentine's printables.

And CoCo from The Crowned Goat gives step-by-step instructions for making a Valentine's Day gift container, as well as some great ideas for what to put inside.

Maybe you'd like to bake a special treat for Valentine's Day. Lisa from Drugstore Divas shares a recipe for cinnamon rolls made from dough that requires just two ingredients. I want to try this!

One of my favorite inspirational writers is Michele Morin from Living Our Days. Read her encouragement derived from, of all things—laundry—here.

Thank you to everyone who linked up!

Now for today's party.  Here at the Grace at Home party, you can link up any post you've written that demonstrates how you're filling your own home with truth, goodness, and beauty. I invite you to link posts about
  • DIY projects
  • decorating
  • recipes
  • hospitality
  • homemaking tips
  • parenting
  • marriage
  • faith
  • self-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, and during these difficult times, it can really make someone's day!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
