Grace at Home No. 455

Hello, friends! I am so glad to welcome you 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.

Here are some highlights from last week's party.

Are you looking for a DIY challenge for your home? Angela from Simply Beautiful by Angela constructed these gorgeous built-ins beside her fireplace--and she gives a full tutorial so you can make your own.

Or perhaps you'd like to tackle a tiny DIY project. Jennifer from The Everyday Farmhouse shares detailed instructions for making these darling lavender sachets.

Looks like winter will be with us for several more weeks, so why not make your indoor spaces cozy and beautiful? Kristi from French Creek Farmhouse shows you how she made her breakfast room especially inviting for the season.

To truly enjoy the cold season, you need a good hot beverage, right? I think I'll make this homemade chai shared by Vicki from Five Spot Green Living.

And why not make February more fun by celebrating special days? DIY Party Mom shares a complete list of special days, including a printable calendar.

Valentine's Day is right around the corner. If you'd like to make a gift for a loved one but don't have much time, Julie from My Wee Abode can help you out.

If you'd like to make a special Valentine's Day dessert, Nancy from Nancy C has a red velvet bar cookie recipe to share.

No time to devote to a Valentine's Day treat?  Patti from Pandora's Box shows you how to make the quickest Valentine's Day dessert ever! Aren't these darling?

As winter drags on, it's easy to become irritable, isn't it? Do yourself (and the people with whom you come in contact!) a favor and read this post from Barbara Lee Harper at Stray Thoughts

Thank you to everyone who joined last week! Now for this week'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!
