Grace at Home No. 483

Hello, friends! Autumn has finally arrived in North Carolina, and I'm enjoying a hot cup of coffee as I write this, especially since the temperature is in the 50's. This time of year is always a little strange in the American South—is it Fall yet? Can we just look at the calendar and not at the thermometer? But now it's finally here. 

My husband continues to improve (you can read about what's been happening here), and I thank you so much for your prayers. It's been a long month, but we're hanging in there.

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. Here are some highlights from last week's party.

Do you wish you could update the look of your kitchen? Well, prepare to be inspired. Look at this beautiful kitchen from Angela at Simply Beautiful by Angela:

And now look where she started:

Maybe you'd just like to tackle a smaller DIY project. How about these end tables from Meagan at Decorative Inspirations?

Or perhaps you'd like to try your hand at a craft project this fall. Here are some ideas for you!

Want a fun visit with someone who goes all out to decorate for the seasons? Then you should check out this post from dear Debbie at Debbie-Dabble.

If you're feeling a little weary and need to be reminded of the importance of your purpose, read this post from Lisa at Lisa Notes. You'll be glad you did!

Thank you to everyone who linked up! Now on to 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!
