Farmhouse Friday No. 3

Welcome to the third issue of Farmhouse Friday where I share our homeschool and week at the farmhouse.

Last weekend hubby and I went to a surprise 50th birthday for a close friend. It was at a local distillery. I had never been to a distillery before and it was quit interesting to hear the process in which they make their grain alcohol. Personally, I am not a fan of these types of alcohol but never the less learned all I could.   It was a rustic farm like setting, perfect for the birthday boy.  We snacked on great food and shared some fellowship.   After the party,  we picked up  my mother and went and found our Christmas trees. 

We are all decked out for the holidays here at Woodwater Farmhouse.  Lots of fun themed book reading going on. Board games and Christmas movies happening.  We have not gotten into our baking modes yet, but rest assured it will come.  

If  I may talk frank here with you friends, the kids have been less than cheerful and bright.  I have had several "coming to Jesus" meetings with them all and if they don't shape up...things are a changin'. 

In case you missed it, we had another installment of Shining the Spotlight for December. This month we were shouting out about Finding Home Farms.  Here is a link in case you missed it. 

Sorry it's a short post this week....busy times...and we are on grand baby watch!  Fingers crossed and prayers are needed!  

Enjoy your wekeend.  We have a fun packed one planned with our BFF's who are in from out of town.  Enjoy your holidays!

Be blessed!

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!�…
