Hello friends! I wish I could invite you to come sit on the front porch with me. We'd turn on the ceiling fans, sip a glass of iced tea, and relax, but we would not be sitting there in the middle of the afternoon, because we'd melt! Is it hot in your neck of the woods? It's been scorching here in North Carolina.
Hot or not, I'm so glad to welcome you to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. Here are some features from our last party I think you'll enjoy.
Want to cover up your fireplace for the summertime? Diane from In My Own Style shows you how to make a decorative screen quickly and inexpensively.
Got a bunch of ribbon that needs to be organized? Ann from The Apple Street Cottage shows you how to make a ribbon holder (and she has a lot of ribbon!).
Allyson from Southern Sunflowers has a free printable for you.
Want some patriotic decor for your home but like to keep things understated? Julie from My Wee Abode shows you how to make these cute little flags from scraps of fabric.
If you prefer your patriotic decor not to be understated, you'll enjoy visiting Debbie from Debbie-Dabble Blog, who goes all out with the red, white, and blue.
If you're just hoping to get away this summer, you'll appreciate this list of destinations from Dave and Jamie of PhotoJeepers.
Looking for a yummy summertime treat? Michelle at The Wooden Spoon Effect shares a key lime cookie recipe that looks delicious.
And these Key Lime Bars from Michelle at Powered by Mom look delicious, too!
If you need some soul food to nourish and challenge you, head over to Linda Stoll's and see what she means by "becoming like Nancy Drew." So good!
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

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!
