As I started looking for some basic items to spruce up my festive decor, and I thought I should share them with you as well! If you purchase any of these items or similar items, send me a photo of how you use them. I would love to see! And I may even share them as an update!

So, here are a few of my favorite Amazon finds for the festive patriotic summer holidays!

February Farmhouse Decor Finds

Time for another round of Farmhouse favorites from Amazon! Some of these are items I ordered, and some are on my wish list. Some are budget friendly finds, and some are bigger items that we may want to save for! Be sure to add the items that you love to your Amazon Wish List! Every time I get a little extra shopping money, I go back and look through the items I have saved. It’s almost like Christmas because you only have to choose from things you know you already love!

Grove Co. & Mrs. Meyers Clean Day

IMG_6865

Happy Monday friends! Does anyone else like to wake up and clean the house first thing in the morning?? I love to have the rest of the day to enjoy the house and all of our friends and family that enter it, without having to clean up during the time I get to spend with them!

Today I am excited to try out a new scent from Mrs. Meyers Clean Day, which has always been one of my very favorite cleaning products. The scents are not over-powering, they are made with essential oils, and much better for your family and your home than the cleaning products that you would normally grab at the grocery store!

The walnut scouring pads and kitchen towels are new to me, but let me just say “WOW” already! I am in love with these kitchen towels. They are so thick and soft!

Take my word for it, you will be glad you tried some of these awesome products from Grove. Just click the link below and grab your free gift while you are thinking about it!

Happy cleaning!!

No Bake Cookies

Thanksgiving is close my friends! It is time for meal planning, recipe browsing, and eating way too much good food!! I thought this would be the perfect time to share one of my very favorite cookie recipes with you.

Ingredients:
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
3 cups of oatmeal
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Supplies:
wax paper
1 large bowl
1 medium size sauce pan to boil the butter, milk, and sugar
1 teaspoon to measure vanilla & drop the cookies
measuring cup

Below are the brands that I try to use.

Step 1: Place chocolate chips, oatmeal, and vanilla in to large bowl.ย **Hint about the vanilla… I tend to pour vanilla over the spoon, holding it over the bowl, and let it overflow with vanilla by a few drops! The extra vanilla gives it a little something special if you ask me.ย 

Step 2: Combine the butter, milk, and sugar in to the sauce pan. Bring to a rolling boil and continue for 1 minute.

Step 3: Remove the sauce pan from heat, and pour the liquid mixture in to the large bowl with the dry ingredients (chocolate chips, oatmeal and vanilla). Stir immediately and mix well.

Step 4: Lay wax paper on top of the counter space and begin dropping the cookie mixture by the spoon full on to the wax paper.

Step 5: Let sit until cool to the touch.

My last recommendation is to hurry and hide some for yourself, because they won’t last long!

Hope you love these little cookies!

Sincerely,
Beth @ Cedars & Grace Co.

Thankful Cards

We made it y’all! Its finally Friday! Congratulations for keeping up the good work.. for not quitting that job, with that boss (you know the one), for being nice to the drive-thru worker who kept getting your lunch order wrong over and over, and for just showing kindness to those around you (even when you aren’t feeling kind).

Back to business.. I wanted to share these little Thankful cards with you. They are available in my shop as printed versions on thick craft paper, but I also wanted to make them available to you for self printing! Below is what mine look like when printed and cut as 5x7s.

So what I do with these, is open up the file below, and print 4 to a page (which gives you roughly 5×7 prints). This will look best on a card stock so it isn’t flimsy. I hope you and your family love these as much as I do! If you are on Instagram, I’d LOVE for you to tag me in a photo once you have them made! It makes me happy to see how things like this are used by others.

thankful list

I wish you all a wonderful Fall weekend!

Sincerely,
Beth @ Cedars & Grace Co.
