The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up #71

"To be a mother is the grandest vocation in the world. 
No one being has a position of such power and influence. 
She holds in her hands the destiny of nations; 
for to her is necessarily committed the making of a nation's citizens." 
~ Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911)

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!

* Presenting our features from the last Link Up ~
Please visit a few of these hand-picked posts and leave a kind comment :) *

1. Why the Little Things Matter by Living From Glory to Glory ~ I love the perspective that Roxy put on the little things! It was very sweet and lovely and inspirational....

2. Fall Favorites with Stringtown Home Harvest Tour by My Thrift Store Addiction ~ Cecelia put together some darling fall vignettes that you are sure to enjoy!

3. Why Use Notebooks by Healthy Simplicity ~ Notebooks are the backbone of our homeschool and I love that Jennifer shares their many benefits! 

4. Calico Rompers by Lilacs and Springtime ~ Sarah sewed up the most adorable rompers for her daughter. Though I am not a big sewer, I am tempted to pick up that pattern for baby gift giving!

5. Rosemary Thyme Salt Sprinkle by Living Awareness Institute ~ Kami shares a simple herbal recipe that you can use in place of salt to add more flavor to your food and help your immune system. According to her, these herbs have strong anti-bacterial activity and help to fend off colds. Perfect for stocking your pantry with in the fall and winter!

6. Meanwhile, In the Outhouse by Making Our Sustainable Life ~ Perhaps it is because we have an outhouse that I was just glued to this post? Hers came out so nice that I am inspired to rethink the love (or lack of) I have put into ours!
