This book looks so fun!

Always check the almanac for your planting safe dates. It's so sad when when it freezes the little baby plants.

My 2 older children are in a Junior Master Gardener program currently at our local arboretum and loving it so they would love this book! My garden tip is to have kids learn gardening from someone with a green thumb, which I do not have :)
Thanks for hosting this fun giveaway!

I'm already a follower My kiddos would love this book. We borrowed it from the library this week but would love to add it to our book shelf.

My best gardening tip is to grow things you love. We are big string bean and pea fans so that's what we grow.

I follow you! My little one loves the Magic Schoolbus and would love the book!

My best gardening tip is kind of like my newest life saying "Life's a dance, you learn as you go!" This is our third year gardening and each year we are learning from both our success and our mistakes!

I am a follower and my best gardening tip is to not let my "black thumb" anywhere near your garden.

I would love to follow you but can't find a button to sign up for e-mail. We always start our little seedlings off in the greenhouse and love watching them start to sprout.

Hi! I am a new follower via GFC and a fairly new gardener as well! My best tip for any newbies is to not forget to water regularly! LOL That has been my biggest challenge here in the heat of the deep south.

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!�…
