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!!

New Year & New Beginnings

     It’s so hard to believe that it’s 2018! I don’t know about you, but I am super excited! This year I have two big goals. First and most important, I plan to truly study the Bible. This is something I haven’t made enough of a priority in my life, and this year I am finally changing that! Second, I am finally going to try selling signs and shirts at local markets! So if you are the praying kind, I’d appreciate your prayers for both of these goals!

     Another big change for the shop this year is that every Sunday (excluding holidays and vacations) I will be featuring a new faith inspired item!! I hope that this will help me to stay in the Word, and maybe even help you learn some new stuff too! You can also watch for new Easter signs and shirts to come to the shop by the end of January.

Now that all of the Christmas decor has been purged, organized, and put away.. I am trying to rethink the look of my home decor. The photo above truly shows the colors and feel that I plan to work in to my home throughout the year. I also hope to start using holiday decor that only adds to this theme, instead of having to take it all away just to put out a months worth of holiday decor. Simple is good.. and that is my goal for this year!

Until next time.. happy decorating!

Sincerely,
Beth @ Cedars & Grace Co.

 

 

Christmas Tree Makeover

IMG_4481

This is my once favorite Christmas tree ever! Truth be told, it wasn’t expensive. I found it for sale on Facebook and only paid $50.00 for it! I was so excited to have it because our home has high ceilings and I didn’t like that our current tree looked like a miniature tree in our living room.

However, this year I put up our big green Christmas tree only to feel sad. Our poor tree needed a makeover. I mean, she deserves a makeover now and then too right?? My taste in holiday decor has changed a lot over the last couple of years. And I no longer want our home to look like a Christmas carnival for children, but rather move to a more classy adult look since our children are older now.

So after thinking all of this through…. I did what any woman on a budget would do, and went to Walmart! I purchased 5 cans of Santa Snow and some new shimmer white lights!

Here is the process that I used:

  1. remove any lights on the tree
  2. straighten all branches to your liking
  3. cover the floor around the tree to keep the fake snow from staining (even though it says “easy clean up”
  4. have a ladder handy if your tree is tall like mine
  5. grab a can of Santa Snow
  6. start spraying, making one pass from the top down to dust the top of the branches, and one pass from the bottom towards the top to dust the bottom of the branches as well
  7. let this sit until dry

After I added the shimmery lights to the tree.. it was perfect! I could have went and bought a new tree this year. Thats what I really had on my mind, but I am glad that I preserved the life of this one! Everyone that walks in to the house says how beautiful it is. And trust me, the photos and video don’t do it justice!

 

PLEASE keep in mind that everyone needs to follow basic Christmas tree safety this holiday season! No matter who says “try this” or “do this” always read product labels and warnings. While using Santa Snow I did find that this product is to be used on ever green branches/trees. However any time lights are involved I use extra care. No spray was applied to any lights, and I would never leave these lights on while sleeping or when the house is empty.

Fall – Season of Change

Happy October friends! I am excited to say that this Fall (the beautiful season of change) has been a great one so far for Cedars & Grace Co.  There are so many things that I want to share with you.

First of all… Cedars & Grace Co. signs are now in the Main Street Market Antique and Vintage Goods store on Main Street in Lindale, Texas! So if you are ever in the area, come check it out! Feel free to let me know if you are planning ahead, and I will even be glad to meet you there!! Look for the beautiful white building in the photo below.

And secondly, the most recent adventure and shop listing.. is our Cedars & Grace Co. faux fireplace!! This has the perfect amount of DIY for a beginner. I will cut, sand and stain the wood for the fireplace for you. Wrap it all up with easy to follow directions for assembly, and ship it right to your front door!! All you have to do it take it out of the box, arrange the pieces on the floor using the directions, secure the wood together and attach to the wall! And there you have it… instant sweater weather/fall decor goodness!

Also, I’ve attached some pictures to show you how the first one turned out! If you want to know more about ordering, just visit my little shop! Link in menu above.

 

I also want to give a huge thank you to all of those who support and cheer me on! There’s no way I could be doing this without you all!

Sincerely,
Beth @ Cedars & Grace Co.
