Linen Closet gets a make over....

In the spirit of the New Year I have been cleaning out...purging and just plain ol' throwing things away.  One of the hardest things to work with, in my opinion, is small closets!  Our linen closet is tiny. With a family of 5, 4 beds, abundance of towels, medicines etc....we really need something bigger, but for now, it will have to do.  Here is a before picture of our linen closet:

Took it all apart...found out we did not need toothpaste, shampoo, body wash for weeks!  So much for being a

Here is the after:

And here is what I was left with that was either outdated meds or things that just were not needed anymore.

Don't even ask me how all this stuff fit in there since it looks pretty full to get to the spice cabinet

What have you been organizing this new year?

My Saturday Organizing project is the toys closet. ;)
Your linen closet looks nice. Way to go.
It looks great! My January project is the basement. It has become the catch-all for years now, and it really needs some work.

I've been working on many areas, the basement being a top priority. It often becomes our catch-all and somehow, many outgrown toys hide out down there. At first, it was a little hard for me to purge (I like my stuff!) but after giving a bunch away, it felt great knowing that others will be able to use it.

And, since 2010 is now in the past, I'll be going through our files to collect paperwork for taxes, toss what is not needed and store the rest in our long-term storage box.

I agree. Small closets are hard to organize, especially if they need to be home to lots of stuff. Great job!

I think you did great - and that getting your linen closet organized will help a lot! I just featured another linen closet recently. I'd love for you to stop by and check it out!

Great job! So funny that you have enough toiletries to last for weeks now! :)
Enjoy your organized closet. :)
Thanks for linking to my party!

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's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
