Collage Friday

Everytime I write this Collage Friday post I just can't believe another 7 days has been wiped off the calendar.   If you are not familiar with Collage Friday over at Homegrown Learners - please check it out. It is full of information, fellowship and oh so much fun!  

Homegrown Learners

Last Friday we had our usual Friday Family Happy Hour - for more information on this great family time - I invite you to check THIS post out!

In school this week - we were all over the board...crafting with our Kiwi Crates, gardening on our deck and getting caught up on our Scholastic Newsletters. 

This weekend is Memorial Day weekend and Daddy is off again on Monday (HUZZAH!)  we are hosting a small get together on Saturday with a few homechooling families - kinda a celebration of the year!   They are predicting rain, which is a party (and party planner) nightmare  however, with a smaller crowd inside will work fine...just pictures wont be as "nice 'as I wanted them!

Theme:  Memorial Day - NYC Style!  

I pray your weekend is blessed and filled with love! 

Until next week - Be blessed!

Fun, fun! Melissa, you would be proud of me - I bough S'mores fixings and American flags for this weekend and we are having a pool celebration with the kids each inviting a friend. You know I'm not a huge party planner, so just this little bit is a big step for me! :-)

Love you, my friend!

Aw Mary that is cool! Enjoy!

It's going to POUR here this weekend! :sigh: But the plan is to go spend time with friends on Sunday and go to the kids' grandparents house on Monday for a cook-out (and discuss our upcoming trip). Sounds like you're going to have a blast!

Yes, I love the owl costumes and so would my girls. They are always some type of animal...mainly ponies but they do take flight

A Friday Happy Hour - very interesting idea. I am going to ponder putting something like that in play at my house.
Karen said…
I always feel the exact same way on Fridays...'Where did the week go?" Your party looks like it is going to be a blast. You do the coolest party things! Enjoy and Happy Memorial Day.

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's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
