Grace at Home No. 493

Hello, friends!

Thank you for all your encouraging comments about my son's surgery. We believe he is making good progress. The post-surgical time was much more difficult than we expected, so we are grateful for him finally to be feeling stronger.

Meanwhile, 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.

Now that we're squarely in the middle of winter but Christmas is a month behind us, are you struggling to make your home feel cozy? Shelley from Calypso in the Country has some great ideas for you.

If you're not quite ready to cozy things up and still need to declutter after the holidays, Julie from Filling the Jars can help with a decluttering action plan.

Planning ahead for Valentine's Day? Pam from Everyday Living has some beautiful tablescapes to inspire you.

Want to make a Valentine's Day gift for someone (or for your own decor)? Ann from Apple Street Cottage shows you how she made these darling denim hearts.

Need a new dinner recipe? Arlene from Flour on My Face shares a taco soup recipe I want to try.

Thank you to everyone who joined last 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!

    Creatively, Beth

  3. So glad to hear your son is making progress! Great news! And thanks so much for featuring my winter decorating ideas! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  4. Glad to hear an update on your son, Richella. January is always a great month to organize and purge, and I do just that. But it's also a time when others are purging, so estate sales are like the siren call, making it hard to resist. I continually struggle with the minimalist / not a minimalist mentality! Thank you for featuring both sides of that coin with cozy and organizing features.

  5. Glad to hear your son is continuing to recover well, even if slower than he'd like, I'm sure. Thanks for sharing my vulnerability link; I'm still fighting the hangover. :) I'll be visiting the other links as well to get Valentine ideas!

  6. I'm so glad to hear your son is doing better. I know it takes weeks to recover from surgery, so I pray for his continued improvement til he feels as much back to his old self as possible.
