In keeping up with the "Not" Back to School Spirit...I am joining others at the Not Back to School Blog Hop over at Heart of the Matter....here is what I have done so far with our school room...




hubby made me this LONG shelf last year...LOVE IT



Our new morning board....calendar, weather and days in school...laminated it so we 
can use our white board markers...

Jolanthe over at Homeschool Creations has awesome Bulletin board ideas...I borrowed some...


My 'desk" rolling cart...tucks in the corner when we are not in school..



Organization is the key in our school...



Our dining table doubles as our school table.


Playroom/imagination area



Kids have easy access to lapbooks, flashcards and more..

Melissa, your home is for your children, and I just love that about this post! You have so many wonderful resources for your kids that aren't compartmentalized into just a "school" space. Learning occurs everywhere. One day, I am coming to NY and going to your school (and that's a PROMISE - when I visit my sis in Rochester I'm coming over!)

Beautiful homeschool spaces Melissa! You look like you have as much books and resources as I do! I love the organization and bright rooms! Have a great year and a fun week!

This is the second post I've seen about a desktop apprentice. Must. get. one. You are so organized! Also, I think your dining room is very pretty and love the painting on the wall!
Wonderful room and great organization.

Your home is so wonderfully kid friendly! My Little britches would ADORE coming over to visit in that playroom! I'm jealous of all your laminating! I need to get me a good laminator...did you take the larger things somewhere to get them done?

I have a bag like your school bag...but as of now don't need to use it for school stuff...

Visiting and following...thanks for visiting me!
Love your room and all the different containers you have used to organize!
Is that a thiry-one bag? I have one suspiciously like it and love, love, love it! Have fun at Disney!
Lisa said…
You have a very nice space for school with great shelves! How nice of your hubby to make you such a great shelf.

What a cheerful, fun place to learn! I like your morning board. We're going to do something similar this year, using our pocket chart.

I like your blue walls!

Have a great year of homeschooling!

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!�…
