Grace at Home No. 457


Hello, friends! I'm so glad to welcome you to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. In these turbulent times, it's a treat for me to visit with you all.

It's such a privilege for me to host this little gathering every week. You know, link parties are considered by many to be a thing of the past—they were very popular a few years ago, but many bloggers have moved on to other pursuits. 

I understand this. Many bloggers depend upon their blogs for income, and hosting a link party isn't necessarily a good way to bring in revenue. But I love the way this party has led me to meet many interesting people, and I feel honored to highlight the work of so many bloggers I admire. So here we are!

And now some highlights from last week's party.



Do you save shopping bags? I do this: I love having different sizes of paper bags on hand. But if you've collected quite a few, you might want to visit Patti from Pandora's Box to see how she used paper bags to create this cute stool for her dressing room.


Someone must have known that I've been having trouble with deciding what to cook for dinner, because I found several new recipes in last week's link-up. Check these out:









If you find yourself anxious these days (I think that's a lot of us!), you'll want to see this post from Donna Reidland at Soul Survival.


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!
