Grace at Home No. 512

Hello, friends! I hope you're having a wonderful July. We're now in the time of high temperatures and high humidity. Funny—I've lived in the Southeast most of my life, but somehow the degree of humidity surprises me every summer. It's as if my mind can't quite hold onto the fact that summertime could be quite this oppressive. Do you know what I mean?

I'm very glad to welcome you to the Grace at Home party, where we pause to celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. Here are some features I think you'll enjoy.

Ever wish you had that one perfect piece of furniture that would just make your room? CoCo from The Crowned Goat shows you how this special French country hutch came to be—and it didn't start out looking like this at all! (You won't believe the "before"!)

Need a new "little touch" for decorating your kitchen walls? Emily from Hunny I'm Home DIY has free printables for you.

Have you collected lots of stuff that you need to get rid of? Maybe a yard sale is a good strategy for you. Melissa from Blessed Simplicity has some great tips to get you started.

Need a delicious, refreshing summertime dessert? Check out this recipe for Orange Cream Pie from Kimberly at LouLou Girls.
Could your marriage relationship use a little kick? Lyndsey from Perfectly Imperfect has a great idea: a couples' bucket list.

Last but not least, some food for thought. You'll be inspired and challenged by this post on steadiness of soul from Barbara at Stray Thoughts.
