Dayspring "Grace" Tiles

"Hey, Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore!"

I know that's what you're thinking this week.

I realize this is NO decorating blog. Not by any stretch of the imagination. When you click over here, I'm fairly certain that you're not expecting anything in the way of beautiful pictures of my professionally decorated home. That's just not me.

Don't get me wrong. I love my home. I love making it comfortable. I love entertaining and having people stay with us. And I love looking at other people's beautiful homes.

I just don't think I'm very "gifted" in the decorating sense. Not like Sarah. Oh my! That girl has a gift! (It doesn't hurt that she lives in a gorgeous place, too.)

Anyway, this week has been a little different. Yesterday's question sure generated a lot of opinion from you all. (Thanks for nothing.) I've decided, thanks to my wise middle daughter, to keep the red for one more year and see how I feel. BUT . . . good news! . . . I think I'm going to change the window treatments and the furniture. That should help, don't you think?

But that's not the point of this post.

Sometimes we just need a little boost rather than a complete room makeover. Sometimes we just need to change out a picture or fill in an empty space to make us feel like we've contributed a little something to our home.

And that's just what I did this week, thanks to Dayspring. When they asked me to review their new "Grace" wall tiles I immediately jumped on the opportunity. Because, you know, "Grace" is my word this year.

I had an empty space in my dining room where the tiles fit perfectly. And doesn't it just seem fitting to add a little "Grace" to your dining experience? Maybe the irony is lost on you, but I thought it was cute.

Here's a closer view.

Want one of these beauties? Right now, Dayspring is offering $10 off the Grace Wall Tiles at the Dayspring (in)Courage store. They have some other great deals going on right now, too, so go check them out.

Thanks to (in)Courage and Dayspring who provided these beautiful wall tiles for me to review!

    i'm inspired to incorporate GRACE somewhere in our home now. i'll keep you posted.


  2. I like it!!

    (I think if my friends and family walked in my house and saw the word, "GRACE" they would roll around on the floor laughing for quite some time.

  3. 20 comments yesterday! Will you remember me when you're famous??
    I love these tiles. I am not fashionista in any sense of the word but I know what I like. THat's what you want to live with. : )

  4. Hi Shelley! Thanks so much for quickly stopping by this morning. I had fun looking through many of your posts, too! I love your outlook and writing. I sense a kindred spirit! And I love the word "grace" too--both from a spiritual perspective and in terms of what I try to achieve in my life aesthetically. I'm your newest fan :)!

  5. Well, hello "newest fan"! Welcome to the party!

    Heather, I just about spit out my coffee when I read your comment. So funny! (And I can totally relate--having that word is a REMINDER, not an attribute I currently possess.)

  6. It looks beautiful in your dining room, Shelly.

    ps. When we were moving my husband told me I had spelled dining room wrong on the box. (Bad timing, Dave). I told him he could pack the dinning room himself, if he wanted.(Bad timing, Glenda). Anyway, now I can never remember which one is correct. Since your a college writing teacher, I thought you might know. :)


  7. Love those tiles! They're on my list of Things I Want.

    Here's a shameless plug: I'm hosting a $35 giveaway to DaySpring through Saturday:
