The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up #30

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:
it is the time for home.”
~ Edith Sitwell
There are so many wonderful features in the making of a home. This is a place where I would love for you to share your love for anything home-related. Homemaking, homeschooling and homesteading are all a part of the lovely art of home-making!

  9. Jes, thank you for hosting this wonderful party. I've met so many neat women through it. Thanks for featuring Kim's post on Living the (Cottage) Dream. I think living simply and within the means God's grants us resonates with a lot of us. Your blog is a great place to feed that desire. Hugs, Nancy

    1. Thank you Naomi for sharing! Being in our 4th year of homesteading, I would say that it is the truth for us. A time to slow down after all the hard work of growing and preserving... A time to sit quietly and rest with our families :)

  18. Dearest JES - Thank you for hostessing another week! May God bless your efforts!
    Today I shared Pt. 3 of my series on "What is Natural Health?" titled "How Does the Body Work?"
    I am touched today with a deep wish to be able to meet all of you lovely ladies in person! I think we would all have so much to talk about together that it would be hard to part!
    I pray your week is filled with the Spirit of the Christmas Season!
