Spring & Easter Decor

Now that Molly's birthday is over and the decorations have come down...it was time to think about decorating the house for Spring and Easter!  I got a few things out today....


My new Pottery Barn watering can (clearance sale!) and my new little chocolate bunnies (they are ceramic salt & pepper shakers - I found these cuties at the gift shop at our car wash..lol...it's an awesome shop!)


For this I bought a tin from the dollar bin at Target, used black primer and then chalkboard paint
Saved three egg shells (washed out of course) from our eggs and put some floral grass in there..cute huh


This goes on our main table...little basket with colored wooden eggs from an Etsy shop (love me some Etsy) and a Dollar Tree picture from with Happy Easter cut out on my new Silhouette machine. The flowers were from Michaels Crafts, dirt cheap...

Of course had to get out the burlap planters that I made (see tutorial here).

I am angry with myself because I used a GC to Pottery Barn that my son had given me for my b'day and bought these beauties...and now can't find them anywhere in the house!


So far....a few things...

What about you?  Decorating for the Spring yet?

oohh what fun! I love the three egg shells that you have in the target metal tin! I have an Easter decoration dilemma.. Maybe you can help me with my problem? Sammy's birthday is the 25 (the day after Easter) his party is the 23 (day before). Do I leave up Easter decorations for his party? If I take them down I know they wont get back up in time since we are doing a cookout on the 23rd night. I am not doing a big theme for his birthday but will def put up some simple decorations for it.. ideas?

I felt similar way too...with Molly's birthday right in the middle of Spring decor...and Sammies b'day is May 5th...so I put up Spring/Easter for a quick few weeks until more b'day stuff comes out..

I would say, decorate "light" things you can move easy. If you are planning the party activities in 1 room, then maybe stay clear of that room decorating but decorate others (bathroom etc)

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!�…
