Farmhouse Friday

Happy 2017 Friends!

Holidays were exciting, tiresome and happy over here at the farmhouse.  We hosted many friends and family...ate way too many calories....opened up so many lovely gifts and made a lot of memories! 

Good friends and cousins join in the fun!

The sunrises have been beautiful although the sun has not stayed out past the sunrise for long 8(  Lots of rain and wind. 

We are waiting patiently for snow to arrive. The weather has been crazy day warm and then next below freezing. 
 We lost 2 of our catfish in our pond 8(  but their purpose lives on in our garden!  Great nutrients for the soil. 

Having some fun with my new phone - Galaxy 7  the picture quality is great!  Oh yes that spider was in our he is free to roam the mountainside. 

I got to see my new grand baby over the holidays. She is such a blessing to the family. Lots of games, family pictures and working on our game room/movie room in the basement!  Loving all the Star Wars action happening!

We had a slow start back this week to school.  Only a few days in and our littlest, Sammie, came down with a stomach bug and fever. We have been learning about penguins and Antartica this past week. Nursing back to health our littest one.  Baking, eating...exercising...not in that order..hehe

We hosted NYE Family party and it was a fun time for sure! 

This weekend - martial arts and taking the rest of our Christmas trees down and decorations. 

Things I am crushing on this week!

Learning how to Hand Letter - on my goal list for this year to learn how to hand letter. 

We are also in the first stages of designing our new kitchen. Here is a glimpse at my Pinterest Page if you are interested in our style. 

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  Be Blessed!

What a busy time for you all! And hosting parties. Recovering from the holiday fan fair takes us an entire month.

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!�…
