See our home decor for the holidays Part 2

So if you read the post in the beginning of the week you will know that i went to our local Salvation Army and hit the jackpot with holiday decor on a budget!  I spend $ 20.97 and boy did I get a lot!  So I have spent a few hours here and there incorporating these items into our home holiday decor.  Here are the final (ok final unless I move them again for the 20th time...) pictures.  P.S. - Hubby is thinking a decorating intervention is in order..lol


The large jar and old fashion lights were some of the purchases. I stuck a cute Santa in there, put the lid on it and now he sits on top of a tall floor standing clock that I have in the entrance way.


The tin snowman..looks so cute on one of my shelves in the family room.


This picture has the large snowman jar that i purchased at the S.A. and the balls I got at the hardware store for a $ 1.00!


The Santa pictured is the new S.A. purchase. So cute with his ceramic feet! 


So this week was a painting week for me..I have been so inspired lately by others' blogs. So I redid the kids bathroom in snowmen and snowflakes. I painted the inside of the cabinet (thank you Nate Berkus for this suggestion!  The snowman tin is one of the S.A. purchases for $ .89



The jar with the Qtips in them is one of the purchases. This is in the kids bath now.  Along with a $ .69 canning jar with kosher salt in it for snow and a few other embellishments i had laying around.


I wanted to show this as i bought this large snowflake at the dollar store and printed off this subway art, framed it and there you have it. $ 1.00 and it looks great!


The Angel in the back (tall gal) was one of the S.A. purchases. This is in the girls' room.


My dining room buffet with a new arrangement. Hard to tell with the lighting but there are candle scattered throughout and the little tree has lights. Real cute arrangements.


This is one of the shelves in the above jelly cubbard that is on our buffet. The tree to the far right (tall one) was $ 1.00 (it';s a candle) from the S.A. 


There is that cute $ 2.49 nutcracker that I found at the S.A. 


As you can see my penguin trivet did not hold up too well. He broke in 1/2 today, I tried to glue, it's holding but i could not get it back together without a crack in it 8(



Had to sneak some of the kids gingerbread houses in there...still so impressed!

Well there you  have it...we get our big tree this Sunday after the church pageant. I will be decorating that on Sunday!  

Happy Friday everyone and enjoy the weekend!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
