Hello friends! Welcome to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes and spheres of influence places of grace and beauty.
In case you haven't already seen it, I want to be sure you know about a wonderful giveaway. I know, I know--it's easy to think that internet giveaways are just a scam, but this one is not--it's just a group of women who are pooling resources to offer two great prizes. The first prize is a $225 gift card to the retailer of your choice (yes, you get to pick any store!). The second prize is a package of books and other gifts, with a value of over $200. My book Mythical Me is one of the prizes in that second package. If you'd like to enter, simply click here for all the details. There are multiple ways to gain more entries, and you can do as many or as few as you like.
Here are some links from last week's party I think you'll enjoy.
Do your dining chairs need an update? Niky from The House on Silverado recovered hers easily and cheaply--and she shows you exactly how to do it.
Would you like to have a wreath that can welcome folks during the fall and then transition to Christmas? Elizabeth from Pinecones and Acorns will show you how to make this gorgeous wreath (no glue or wire required!).
Want to get a head start on Christmas decorating? Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa teaches how to stencil with more than one color (and I love her idea of stenciling on a blackboard!).
Looking for an elegant side dish for Thanksgiving dinner? Renae from Peacock Ridge Farm can help! Check out her baked sweet potatoes with maple glaze.
Or maybe you'd like something simple and fun to greet your guests. Linda from Crafts a la Mode will show you how to make this fun cheese ball.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful day for giving thanks--but how do you make giving thanks a daily habit? Michele Morin from Living Our Days can help.
Of course, the Advent season begins right after Thanksgiving. If you're looking for a prayer guide to use during Advent, I'd be delighted to give you one. Click here to gain access to several free resources, including Waiting Together: An Advent Prayer Companion.
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 space 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 or sphere of influence 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!
