Grace at Home No. 500

Friends! I am so glad to welcome you today. . . and I am astounded that I'm welcoming you to the 500th Grace at Home party!

I published the very first Grace at Home party back in March 2012. Wow, have things changed since then—the world has changed, the internet has changed, the blogosphere has changed, I have changed—and you have, too! 

Many people talk about blogging only the past tense, and those same folks certainly see link parties are "has beens." But I for one am so grateful for this chance every week to pause and celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. 

I'm especially thankful that I've had the chance to get to know you. It gives me pleasure to shine a light onto your work. So if you're still interested in linking up to this party, I'll still be hosting it. 

And here are some highlights from last week's party I think you'll enjoy.

Need ideas for making a smaller home fresh and pretty for Spring? Check out this post from Julie at My Wee Abode.

Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party!

Here are the Grace at Home party, you can link up any post you've written that demonstrates how you're filling your life with truth, goodness, and beauty. For instance, 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 to your site's home page. Please let people know that you've linked up. No more than three posts per person, please. If you link a post here, you re giving me permission to share your post, including a photo. And please visit one or more of the other participants—that's what really makes it a party!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
