Little Librarians and Summer Reading Programs

For Christmas the girls both received these adorable Little Librarian Kits from their Aunt Gina and her boyfriend (who happens to be a librarian at an all boys school in Michigan).  At first I will admit I was puzzled about the gift..what will they do with these?  Are they too young for them?  However, after they opened them, I will tell you, we "play" library at LEAST 1 time per week. 



Education.com named Little Librarian as one of the 15 best toys for a child in first grade in the 
Holiday Gift Guide 2011.

Disney Family Fun Magazine selected Little Librarian as a finalist for the Toy of the Year Award 2010.

Creative Child Magazine awarded Little Librarian a Seal of Excellence Award 2011.


The kit contains: 7 File Folders, 15 Book Pockets, 15 Book Cards, 4 Library Cards (you can personalize these),
4 Reading awards, 2 Bookmarks, 6 Overdue Slips and 1 Reading Journal

All you need to do is supply the BOOKS!


I love that it all fits back into the sturdy box with a handle!
It's also made it in the USA!

So many fun things to do with this kit over the Summer months when schooling is more relaxed!
  • Kids can play library together
  • Set up a library in your home for Summer Book sign out
  • Ask friends to come over and play
  • Have each member of the family become members of their library and sign out books


I can see this going on so many SUMMER BUCKET LISTS!

The price on these kits is $ 19.99

You can purchase HERE!

Be watching for a giveaway in the Fall, just in time for the holidays!

I love little kits that have everything you need tucked inside. And I LOVE LIBRARIES!!! What better thing than to have a library right in your own home. And run by your children!!!

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!�…
