Collage Friday

Last weekend was our 6th and final camping trip for the season. We have so enjoyed our new travel trailer.   It was Halloween Weekend at our favorite Jellystone park! Met up with our BFF's to camp for the last time and we had a haunting good time!  We decorated our sites...kids got to trick or treat....Halloween dance and more...we did have some rain throughout the weekend but we did not let us dampen our spirits!

The leaves were soooo beautiful up North.  I was in my element dressing up and putting a scare into the children who came to our site!  Tina made Mummy Dogs for the kids also.  Loved our time camping!



Sunday morning was our "big breakfast" before we headed home and unfortunately it was raining so we brought our Halloween party inside.  These cute gable boxes are from Pamela at D and P Celebrations. Love her stuff!



It was a busy week of school.  Zachary was learning all about Columbus. Continuing with his Mary Shelley book, Frankenstein and of course, lots of Minecraft on the computer.  (I have given in to most of his writing assignments and let him type them on the Ipad or computer). 




The girls are busy with lots of fun fall themed activities...leaves...apples..IPad....crafts and more fun stuff! 




This weekend will be filled with soccer games, fall yard clean up (in preparation for our Halloween Family Party) and bringing our camper to its' winter storage place. 

I do pray your week was productive and loving.  Won't you give some of that love over to Mary at Homegrown Learners and join me for Collage Friday!

Until next time  - Be Blessed

What fun camping! You really did it up for the kids! I bet they LOVED it! We used to go Halloween weekend camping locally, but haven't in many years now...and now the camper is gone. Not sure camping in a tent in mid-October in Maine is such a good idea! LOL

Melissa, I would have LOVED to been at your camping trip. That is right up both of our alleys!!! The school week looks great too. Frankenstein is the PERFECT book for right now. :)

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!�…
