Hello friends! I hope all is well with you on this April day. Can you believe we're already well into spring? 2021 has been a trying year, but it's surely going fast.
We've been having beautiful springtime weather here, but I've been keeping myself holed up inside. Why? Because I've taken on a home improvement project that turned out to be much more time-consuming than I bargained for! My husband snapped this photo of me in the act:
I am stenciling our powder room. I think I'm going to love the way it looks when I'm finished, but as I work in the corners I now understand why people often stencil only one accent wall. Whew!
Many of y'all have been busy in your homes, too, which is why I'm so grateful to host the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace. Here are a few highlights from last week's party.
If you're working on your outdoor spaces, you'll want to see this post from Penny from Penny's Vintage Treasures. Just look at the beautiful back porch she's created.
If you'd like to tackle a smaller project, you'll be inspired by the kitchen table refresh done by MaryJo at Master"pieces" of My Life.
Want to create a vignette using vintage items? Debbie from Debbie-Dabble shows us her display of vintage sewing items.
If you're living in a rented space, Julie from My Wee Abode is your source for great wisdom on making a lovely home. Here she explains how she dealt with the problem of ugly carpeting. Nothing stops her!
If you're trying to get more organized this spring (I'm raising my hand!), you'll find lots of practical tips from Chas at Chas' Crazy Creations. I love the way she organized her bathroom using just a few things she picked up at the dollar store.
Trying to decide whether you might be able to stay at home with your kids? Karla from The Happy Mustard Seed offers some great advice.
Last but not least, I think you'll be inspired by this post from Cami from InstaEncouragements on how to love like Jesus loves.
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
- homemaking tips
- 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, and during these difficult times, it can really make someone's day!
