The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up #79

“Live at home.”

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!

* Please visit a few of our features from last week's link up: *

1. Free Chalkboard Style Thankfulness Printables by Children Are a Blessing ~ These verses are some of my favorites and Nicole did a lovely job in preparing them!

2. Civil War Fashion: Clothes (Plaid Dresses and Pagoda Sleeves) by Sweetly Dreaming of the Past ~ Dany has shared some interesting historical information on the resourcefulness of the women in the Civil War Era. I had no idea these beautiful gowns were repurposed from what they had at home! You will want to read toward the bottom where she explains in English and perhaps you will also be inspired by their creativity.

3. 23 Ways to Live Like the Amish by One Ash Homestead ~ I have always been interested in Amish life and I love the ideas these ladies share on living your own faith out but with Amish ideals.

4. For the Woman Fighting to Hold Life Together by Purposeful and Meaningful ~ This is wonderful encouragement using the example of one of my favorite heroines in the Bible. A real life story of hope!

5. Mocha Texas Sheet Cake by The Cotton Apron ~ We used to make this dessert for bible and singing study as children in our monthly church group. I had forgotten about this cake until Mary shared this delicious recipe! Time for  a trip down memory lane :)

6. Dish Towel Inspiration by Stone Cottage Adventures ~ I am an avid collector of dish towels. A homemaker can not have enough when we are knee deep in the kitchen! Marci shares a wonderful way to create your own from an unlikely source.


On to this week! For the sake of our readers, please link up appropriate and wholesome home-related articles and leave out any giveaways, advertisements, etc. Thank you for understanding! I can't wait to see what you all have to share!
