The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up #54

"We gather simple pleasures like daisies along the way." 
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 a few of these hand-picked posts and leave some comment love!}

1. End of School Year Questionnaire {Free Printable} by True and Faithful ~ I love this idea of having your children fill out a questionnaire at the end of the school year. The information they share may surprise you, encourage you and help you to understand what they appreciated in their education. What a valuable tool and keepsake!

2. Blueberry Lime Jam by Clearwater Farm ~ Sandra shares a recipe for blueberry lime jam that sounds amazing (and easy to make!). I will be giving this a try next year as I just finished preserving over 30 pounds worth from a local farm (This included jam, pie filling, freezing and blueberry syrup! :)

3. Your RX Answer for Anxiety by Dr. Michelle Bengston ~ This article was very encouraging and I pray that anyone who has ever faced anxiety will be strengthened and comforted by these words.

4. Crocheted Hair Curlers by Foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains ~ These crochet-your-own hair curlers are so clever (and much softer to sleep on than those pink plastic types). 

5. Freezer Meal Party in Lieu of Baby Shower by Our Alaskan Family Adventure ~ Loved this concept of having a meal party for the new mother instead of a shower! This would be an extra special blessing for a mother who already has a house full!

6. How to Make Pretty Fabric Covered Tins by Beautiful Girlhood ~ And finally, I adore pretty projects that you can feather your nest with that cost pennies. This sweet DIY is delightful and doable using your old recycled tin cans! 


 Ways to Enhance Your Link Up Experience to Make it Lovely:

~ Drink a cup of tea or coffee as you peruse the posts.

~ Visit an article with similar interests and leave a comment. She who likes visitors should also try to visit :)

~ Return a visit to someone who has left you a kind comment, the "Golden Rule" is always lovely when applied.

~ Show that you have similar interests by publicly "following" that person's blog. Many will choose to follow you back and that is how a                                                              sweet community is born.

And finally, thank you for joining us each week! It is a pleasure to have you :)

  5. Hello again dear JES! Thank you so much for featuring my fabric covered tin...what a surprise! I was perusing your beautiful pages this morning when I saw your lovely link-party had been published...always such fun to join you and see what everyone else has shared! :)
    And I must tell you how it was you who inspired to work in the garden a bit this morning and oh! How good it felt! As winter is fast approaching, there isn't much planting I can do, but I am preparing vegetable beds for springtime by adding compost and mulch - hopefully we will have bumper crops this coming spring!
    Have a blessed day and thank you for being a blessing! :)
