Collage Friday and a Special Birthay

It's Friday and you know what that means? YES - hanging with Mary from Homegrown Learners today. Won't you grab a cup of coffee (or tea in my case) and join me. 

Homegrown Learners




Easter Sunday was a wonderful day. Started off with the Easter Bunny leaving baskets with some books, games and a few pieces of candy.  Followed by a beautiful church service and then home for a day long feast with friends and family. 


It's all about the Weather in school this week.  Learning about the Water Cycle, Wind and more.  Looking for some weather related resources and what we worked on - you can check THIS post out from Weather Wednesday


TODAY is a very special day!  It was 6 years ago this morning that our sweet Molly Elizabeth came into our world.  I will admit having a girl was probably one of the scariest things in my life (lol). I had only raised boys up until this point.   She is everything I thought little girls could be  - drama times 10, elegant, graceful, girly and more...I am so proud to be her mother!   Her party with her friends is tomorrow (Horse theme at the Harness Racing Museum - watch for that party!) but we started the weekend celebration yesterday with her annual trip to Toys R Us to get her balloon and crown. With a stop by Friendly's for Ice Cream.  Today is lunch with friends, presents and a church event tonight.  Tomorrow her party with her friends and then Sunday we pick up our camper and my oldest and his fiance come for dinner and more celebrations!  

It has started to warm up here in NY and I am so glad because these kids and this momma need the fresh air!  


I took these shots last year at a local farm market - I just love the reminder that God's beauty is springing up!

I pray your weekend is blessed with more hugs and kisses than you can take! 

 Until next week - be Blessed!

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!�…
