Grace at Home No. 506

Hi, friends! Welcome to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty.

This is a special week for me. First, my oldest son turned 32 yesterday. I'm amazed to think that he used to be this little fellow in rain boots. . .

and now has his own little fellow!

And this weekend will be extra-special, because my beautiful niece is getting married. I know I might sound like a broken record sometimes, but it bears repeating:

The days are long, but the years are short.

Now, here are some highlights from our last party that I think you'll enjoy.

Do you enjoy seeing a big remodeling project as it unfolds? MaryJo from MasterPieces of My Life is right in the middle of a bathroom remodel, and she invites us into the process.

Are you working on getting your house decluttered this year? I am! So I was glad to see this post from Alison at Organized Motherhood.

Have you ever bought a bag of lemons and then wondered how you would use them all? Wendy from WM Design House offers 29 different ways to use lemons—brilliant!

Need some non-fiction titles for your summer reading bookshelf? Linda Stoll offers her answers to the question "What books would you take to a deserted island?"

Do you ever struggle with knowing that someone you love is making poor choices? That's particularly hard for a parent or grandparent, isn't it? Michele Morin from Living Our Days has some great wisdom to share.

Thank you to everyone who joined the last party!
