Collage Friday


TGIF - it's been a HOT HOT Week here in NY.  Thanking the good Lord for our central air! 
We have been to the beach (lake) twice this week...bowling....bike a thon at church (last Friday) and getting ready for Christmas in July - camping trip (leaving in an hour or so)....WOW - we did find time for some school this week - talking about fire safety and first aid.


Last Friday morning my children participated in a fund raiser/Bike A Thon for the MAD group at church (Making A Difference).  Alone - my children raised over $ 140 in collections.  Zachary himself did 77 laps!  So proud of the kids!  (thanks to Bubby and Daddy for sponsoring the kids!)




Last year collage from  - Camping  - Christmas in July at Jellystone!  We are the reigning Site Decorating Champs and will be defending our title this weekend again! 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and why not join me and others over at Homegrown Learners for Collage Friday!


Today is my mom's birthday!  Love you Bubby!
Be Blessed!

Hi friend! Thanks for linking -- and Happy Birthday to your mom!

We're going to the mountains next week, and there will be a camper there - but we are sleeping in a nice comfy cabin in the woods. Sorry. ;-)

One day I will go camping and blog and link to you generously!

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!�…
