The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up #49

“Home is a kind of kingdom with rulers, laws, and subjects,
each with a part to perform in order that life there shall be perfect, 
or at least the best it can be.”
~ Mabel Hale, Beautiful Girlhood (Revised by Karen Andreola)

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 favorite 5 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. {Healthy} Brownie Batter Breakfast Bake by Best of Long Island and Central Florida ~ Linda shares a tasty looking recipe that has me craving breakfast when it is actually lunchtime! Is it just me or would this be a hit in your home too?

2. Baby Chick Photo Shoot by LL Farm ~ Oh my goodness, if these photos don't brighten your day, I don't know what will!

3. Do You Have a Homesteader's Heart by Our Simple Homestead ~ I love the way Tracy puts it. Homesteading isn't about having a large piece of land but a certain frame of mind!

4. Did Not Our Hearts Burn Within Us by So Much at Home ~ Chris shares a passionate article regarding one of my favorite excerpts from Scripture. You will be encouraged!

5. As Keeper of My Home by Blessed Hearth ~ And finally, Faye always inspires! Her spring homemaking list is right up my alley... Lots of pretty pictures and homemaking incentive :)


Update on DIY Lunch Meat (Curing Salt verses Other Salts)

If you were interested in making our lunch meat recipe but were concerned about the use of curing salts (i.e, if you can substitute healthier salts for the curing salt), we have since received sound information which is very helpful on the subject! Please visit our updated post which shares the answer at the bottom of the page.
