W.O.W. Field Trip - Part 2 - Horses & Antiques

Please read Part 1 of this W.O.W. (Way Over Wonderful) field trip....before viewing Part 2....

The working horse farm and antique store....


12plus rooms in a 1850's farm house filled with antiques and collectibles, 
on the horse farm. Across the lake from the main house that I showed
you in Part 1 of our field trip.
(Owned and operated by Nancy (AKA Nana)


Although only open Sat and Sun (April - December), Nana
opened it up for little ol' me today to take a look see around
and "donate" to the cause...LOL



I was drawn to this!  (my purchases from this awesome
store are at the end of this post...)


Zachary wanted me to buy this, he said it was from a pirate he was
sure of it!








Can't you just see yourself sitting here
rockin with the lake and horses behind you....sigh....


Off to across the dirt road to the see the horses....





Barn cat...eats the mice and the snakes....lol...she/he followed
us everywhere meowing...



we could not get them to come over for our yummy carrots
so we went into the stables to see the few that were in there...




Sammie fits right in....

My box of Ball canning jars that I just snagged at a garage sale for $ 3 will
go nicely in here!


Don't you LOVE THESE!  


Could have spent hours in the store, if time and children permitted!


Now we are off to the dock for swimming, picnic and a boat ride...Part 3...

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!�…
