The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up #46

"Scorn not the homely virtues. We are prone
To search through all the world for something new;
And yet sometimes old-fashioned things are best—
Old-fashioned work, old-fashioned rectitude,
Old-fashioned honor and old-fashioned prayer,
Old-fashioned patience that can bide its time,
Old-fashioned firesides sacred from the world,
Old-fashioned satisfaction, with enough
Old-fashioned candour and simplicity,
Old-fashioned folks that practice what they preach."
~ Author Unkown

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. Homemakinghomeschooling and homesteading are all a part of the lovely art of home-making!

~~Please link up posts in the spirit of Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 (such as recipes, godly encouragement, DIY's, frugal living, child-raising, medicine making, preparedness, gardening, home decoration, school lessons, sewing, crafts, etc).~~ You are welcome to share as many posts as you like!

* Today we are featuring our sweet six posts from Last Week *

{I would love for you to choose at least one of these hand-picked posts and leave some comment love!}

1. Easiest Tortilla Chicken Soup Ever by Reviews, Chews & How To's ~ Crock pot recipes are always appreciated and this one looks very easy to make, shares normal ingredients and sounds tasty! 

2. Pantry Challenge by A Working Pantry ~ I am always inspired by the goings-on of Patsi's pantry. If you are a pantry-aholic like myself, then you will appreciate her practical projects and weekly goals.

3. Eight Things to Do When Sickness Strikes ~ This is a great post that shares ideas of how to treat illnesses safely at home. Especially good reading for new mothers! 

4. You May Bend But You Won't Break by What Joy is Mine ~ I know many who are going through trying times right now. Naomi shares some wonderful words of encouragement to keep going!

5. Sacred Sabbath: Service in Marriage by Heaven Smiling ~ This author shares an absolutely heartbreaking video clip that will inspire you to love your spouse unconditionally. I couldn't stop crying as I watched it (to be honest, I was bawling).

6. Simple Crochet Edgings and Things You Can Make Over with Them by The Bluebirds are Nesting ~ And lastly, I love this kind of embellishment on ordinary items to make them extraordinary. Visit Annabel for some lovely homemaking inspiration!
