The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up #89

"The attractiveness of the table helps people give a meal the respect it deserves. Even everyday, informal meals merit an appealing presentation. Although on special occasions most people want to try for an especially beautiful and more formal table, it is the way you do things everyday that sets the tone of your home. A table nicely set draws people to a meal and evokes the right attitudes for enjoying it."

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!

  6. This is good news for me :-) . I had tried to print something awhile back and it didn't work at all. I'll have to remember what it was and browse through again.
    Once again, thank you for hosting.

  7. Jes, you have chosen wonderful features! Have a great week, Lynn

  8. Happy Monday Jes! I LOVE your garden journal! It's beautiful! Blessings to you!

  9. Love the features and painting. My collection of tablecloths is one of my most prized possessions, but I don't set a fancy table everyday. I do love to be able to do that for special occasions, though. Several years ago a friend told me she grew up in a home where it wasn't uncommon to stick a serving spoon in a can of whatever and place it on the table. I'm sure they were lovely spoons. o.O
    Have a great week!

  10. Thanks for the fun party Jes and enjoy the week.

  11. HI Jes, Thank for hosting. I always mean to tell you how much I love your graphics, too!

  12. Thank you, JES, for the party. I linked 123. That quote about the dinner table makes me want to break out my nice dishes tonight. I always feel a little bit more fancy when I do. I'm sure the spaghetti we're eating tonight will taste even better. :)I hope you have a safe, wonderful week.

  13. I shall enjoy visiting the blogs you've suggested. Jes. Thank you and bless you!

  14. Thank you for featuring my bathroom drawer organizer! And thanks for hosting a great party. I love your emphasis and homemaking.

  15. Thank you so much for featuring my printable! I am excited to get into the hands of others so they can be encouraged!

  16. Hello JES,

    Happy Monday to you. Thank you for featuring my post on adding romance and color during during winter months. I am so happy and grateful.

    And thank you hosting such a pretty party each week.


  17. Thank you, Jes, for hosting this party. I like the quote at the top. My daughter recently accepted an 8 yr old girl as a "safe house" for her. She has introduced her to a beautifully set table. They were here for a meal and the sweet girl was helping me set the table. I gave her the cloth napkins to place and she said, "Oh you use rags like Emily." I had a good laugh and I've enjoyed seeing her enjoy a beautiful table.

  18. Beautiful features, my friend, and I am honored to be among them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart - you are a dear!

    And thank you for this lovely party. Hugs to you!

  19. Such a lovely link-up! Thanks for hosting!

  20. Always so wonderful to come here and see what other precious ladies have been doing! I loved your introduction quote and the picture... it is so fun to dress up the simple things in our lives, it makes the ordinary much more special! Have a blessed day my friend! :)

  21. JES, thank you for hosting! I love to see all the Art of Home links. I so agree with the quote in this post. Having meals at a nicely set table brings the family together.

  22. Thanks for hosting! Hope you have a wonderful week :)

  23. Jes,

    I am looking forward to all the reads and thank you for the printables.
