Grace at Home No. 498

Happy March! The calendar doesn't say "Spring" yet, but it's bustin' out all over around here. Just look at the blooms on one of my deciduous magnolia trees:

My good friends in Colorado tell me that they're still covered in snow. . . what's it like in your neck of the woods?

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

Ready to make your home look springy no matter what the calendar says? Shelley from Calypso in the Country has some ideas for you.

Maybe you're like me and need to do some spring cleaning before you do your spring decorating! Meagan from Decorative Inspirations can help you with good ideas outdoor cleanup.

As for the inside of my home, most of what I need to do falls into the category of decluttering. Julie from Filling the Jars can help with that—plus she has some ideas of actually breaking the cycle of clutter for good.

Some possessions are NOT clutter, so they don't need to be purged—but they still need to be organized. Diane from South House Designs offers step-by-step instructions for building an organizing system for your jewelry.

St. Patrick's Day is coming soon. If you'd like to plan a fun Irish dinner, Jenny from Cook Eat Go has a great recipe for Corned Beef and Cabbage you'll want to try.

Or if you just want a simple little St. Patrick's Day treat, check out this idea from the Drugstore Divas.

  1. Even though we just had some snow, it is getting warmer in NJ. Bring on spring! Thanks so much for featuring my spring door ideas! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  2. Like you, we are experiencing the beginnings of spring. Daffodils and hyacinths fill my garden and the redbuds are starting to open their purple/pink blooms. Thanks for hosting this week!

  3. We've had a few warm days, enough to do some yard cleanup. Thanks so much for having us over, Happy Weekend!

  4. Richella,
    we had some snow here yesterday...50's and sunny today and more snow tomorrow...We have had a crazy warm and snowless Winter here in NEPA but I think we may pay for that in March!!!
    Thanks again for hosting this charming party every week! I know how much time goes into doing so and I want you to know that it I truly appreciate it!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

  5. We had miraculous snow(technically grauple) here in sunny So Cal!!! Only for about 2mins...but it was pretty amazing for us!! It's been a very cold winter for us! Thanks for hosting the party, Richella! Have a blessed day!

  6. I've never seen magnolias with pink petals. How pretty! It's pretty springy here in eastern TN, too. The daffodils are up already and I just noticed today my roses are leafing out. I imagine we'll still have a few more cold nights, at least, before winter is finally over.

  7. We're getting some blooms here, too, Richella. But I know we'll get a little more cold weather before it's over.

  8. I am so excited because everything is blooming here as well. I am loving it! Thank you so much Richella for hosting and for featuring my Spring clean up for gardens, Yards and patios. I appreciate it so much. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
