Farmhouse Friday No. 2

Welcome to the second taste of Farmhouse Friday here at Woodwater Farmhouse.  So glad you popped in for a minute or two to say Hi and check out the happenings here. 

In case you missed them - here is what was happening on the blog this week:

Make it Monday - using the Cameo - embellished some cute enamel cups for the kids hot cocoa bar. 

Glimpse into our farmhouse Christmas: just a quick glimpse into our farmhouse decor this year. More to come! 

Homeschooling this past week....we finished up our November teachings and started right into December.  We will be taking it nice and slow in December and hoping to enjoy some visits from friends and community service opportunities. 

These are very cute countdown activity books that I found at Target last month. The girls are loving them! 

Each day we read a new book from our Christmas Collection and we started a unit study on one of our favorites  The Mitten.  Lots of games this week also and advent happenings.

Molly has also been playing the keyboard this week. We bought stickers for the keys and a keyboard book and she is on a roll.  Hoping to have Silent Night, Jingle Bells and We Wish You A Merry Christmas down pat by next weekend when our BFF's come for the weekend to celebrate Christmas! 

What I am obsessed with this week:  the annual Jennifer Rizzo  Holiday Housewalk. Talk about some magazine worthy homes!  Just dream of having a home so decorated like the bloggers participating this year!  If you have some time and a cup of tea or cocoa, head on over! 

Reindeer Cam - if you are not familiar with this fun family cam, then where have you been? Seriously it's the cutest thing! 

On tap for the weekend

Saturday we will be getting our big tree (real) for the living room.  We now have VERY high ceilings and can get a very tall tree (hoping for AT LEAST a 10 footer) IG for updates.    

Hubby and I have a surprise birthday party to go to tomorrow also. 

Sunday is church followed by an advent concert at our old church. I look forward to this concert every year! 

The children will also be spending the night at Grammies and Bubby's house Sunday, (we split them up, works out nicely) so hubby and I can get some wrapping done and have a quiet at home date night. 

Thanks for stopping in and I pray your weekend is filled with comfort and joy!

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!�…
