Grace at Home No. 426

Hello, friends! If you're like me, you found that 2020 dragged by, but now 2021 is simply flying. I can hardly believe that we're nearly in the middle of June!

I am so glad to welcome you to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate the ways we make our homes and other spheres of influence places of grace and beauty. Here are some highlights from last week's party.

Have you seen "living walls" or plant walls and wondered if it's possible to make one yourself? It certainly is—Libbie from A Life Unfolding created one, and she gives a full tutorial for making your own.

Need new chairs for your kitchen table but appalled at the prices of new ones? Meg from Makeable Crafts shows you how she re-created thrift store chairs with new paint and upholstery. 

Summertime means that fresh flowers are readily available. If you're like me, you love flower arrangements. Ever wonder if you can make your own? Yes, you can, and Paula from Sweet Pea shows you how to do it step-by-step.

And if you have flowers in your garden, you can dry the petals and make your own potpourri. Lynne from Thrifting Wonderful provides a detailed tutorial for you.

Of course, having a house with a yard or garden means you need to take good care of the property. Kathryn from The Dedicated House provides some crucial information about what you might be doing to attract termites to your home. Yikes!

It seems that good people are arguing about so many things these days. Indeed, some issues are important enough to argue about. But how do you discern where and how to take a stand? Barbara from Stray Thoughts provides some excellent food for thought.

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
  • 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!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

    Thank you for sharing my living wall this week! You've made my day! Enjoy your weekend!! xx- Libbie

  14. The potpourri made me think of my grandmother. She used to put rose petals in her handkerchief and underwear drawer so the fabric would absorb the fragrance of the flowers. A sweet memory of a lovely lady.
