Got My Craft On - Dollar Tree Style

In my search for "putting myself back on the list"...I found an hour and 1/2 today to get some crafting done. one....


Submitting to this party:







My version of all the Numbered Pottery Barn inspired spring pots.  I used dollar tree ugly pots (see below), my glue gun, some burlap, some Dollar Tree moss, fake eggs I bought at The Christmas Tree shop (12 for $ 1.99 and they look like chocolate) and some numbers that were already cut out and sticky.







I also did this quickie....

Using, again, an empty tree from Dollar Tree.


Dollar Tree Egg Picks.  I just took off the eggs from the sticks, pulled them right off and stuck them to the branches of the tree...$ 2 for a cute centerpiece for the kids bathroom!


Mad this 3-D art using a Dollar Tree Frame, some scrap material, some of the moss from Dollar Tree and an egg from the 1st project...cute huh!



Stuck the last three Robins Eggs from my Pottery Barn stash in with these fake chocolate eggs...


Cleaning out the junk drawer I found some cards that must have come in cereal or something...so cute..I just framed him with an existing frame I had...he's on the mantel..
A few touches on the mantel....eggs, bunny way over in the corner with my topiary tree...

That's all folks.....

I am a huge Dollar Tree fan too. I am currently planning a garden party themed milestone birthday party for a friend, and I bought almost ALL of my supplies from there. I love all that you made.

Wow, love, love, LOVE all your Easter egg art. Yum, and some of them look like real chocolate. :)

Now I have a craving for chocolate and need to go raid the chocolate chips!

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!�…
