Collage Friday - Fall Time

I can't believe this weekend is finally here!  My oldest son is getting married!  We are leaving today for the destination!  It's a beautiful place in Connecticut!  I will share some details next week....keeping their special day private, as requested - but I will share some pics of the kids and a few details!  (hint - follow me on Instagram for a FEW details as they happen!)

We had school this week - still on our Summer schedule...learning all fall...cranberries...and fractions!


I started decorating the house for fall and put away our summer swim suits and towels. Preparing the home for fall is important here in New York - we depend on our wood supply to help heat the house. 

The leaves are changing...pumpkins are available and apples are being picked!  

The picture to the upper right is a picture of my friend Danielle. We had her family over for dinner on Sunday.  It's nice to sit and chat about our lives (other than cancer).  You can donate to her Go Fund Me account to help her family out. 

The girls had their First 2014/15 season Girl Scout Meeting this week.  Soccer practice also started and gym classes - so schedules are getting crazy. We are missing the first game but the wedding trumps that.  I am so glad that there are social clubs for the girls to be a part of. 


In case you missed the Bridal Luncheon post - you can see it over at Eye Candy Creative Studio. 



I pray your weekend is blessed! 

 I have to run and finish up the final packing and get on the road!

A wedding up North in the Fall! How lovely. I am looking forward to Fall arriving around here.

As a Brit when I imagine 'Fall' it is in exactly your part of the US. Hope the wedding went well! Jo

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!�…
