Grace at Home No. 449

Season's greetings, friends! 

Isn't that an interesting sentiment? Seems that Christmas decorations and cards from my childhood often proclaimed "season's greetings," yet it's hard to imagine anyone actually saying that, isn't it? I guess when we need a generic statement we've replaced it with "Happy holidays."  

Whatever greeting you use, there's no denying that Christmas is now just a few days away, so I'm really grateful to welcome you to the Grace at Home party. At this time of year especially, it's a treat to see how you've been making your homes and spheres of influence places of grace and beauty.

Here are some highlights from last week's party.

Need a moment to relax and enjoy someone else's hard work? Shelley from Calypso in the Country has a Christmas house tour for you.

Still getting your decorating done but need some new decor? Angela from Simply Beautiful by Angela shares some budget-friendly crafts.

While you're visiting Angela, you might also want to check out her budget Christmas decor ideas.

Need some craft ideas to keep your kids busy as you complete preparations for Christmas? Paula from Sweet Pea shares some free printable ornaments. Kids could proudly cut these out and hang them. Or you could print them out and use them as gift tags.

Need a yummy Christmas treat or a quick gift to share with neighbors? Melissa from Everyday Savvy shares her recipe for candied pecans. Don't these look yummy?

If you're looking ahead to 2022, you might like to choose one word to guide you rather than making a host of resolutions. Lisa from Lisa Notes can help you.

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
  • decorating
  • recipes
  • hospitality
  • homemaking tips
  • parenting
  • marriage
  • faith
  • self-care
  • 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! 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. I'm going to miss all the Christmas posts in a couple of weeks!

  2. It's been fun getting in the Christmas spirit with all these posts. I've been drifting in and out of it, but these help me jump back in. :)

    Thanks for featuring my post today about choosing One Word. It's not a thing for everyone, but for those of us who do it, it's been fun doing it together this year!

  6. What a bunch of Christmas cheer! I'm trying to get things done before my son comes in from out of state, but keep reminding myself it's ok if not everything is done by then.

  7. Thank you for including my house tour with all the lovely features! Yes, "seasons greetings" isn't used that much anymore...Though, my 15 year old son sometimes walks in the room and says, "greetings and salutations" as a reference to Charlotte's Web. Funny how some things stick with you. Thanks again and enjoy the rest of your week!
