Farmhouse Friday

Happy Friday friends.  Did you think that this week flew by?  I did...Let's get right into what we did this week...

Games..crafting and puzzles - lots of reading..concentrating on it with our 7 year old right now..she is interested and I am going with it!

We are still loving our Scrambled States of America game! Its a game we bring with us often on vacation and out to dinner. Easy to transport and fun for all ages! (affiliate link)

  • Week two with our chalk pastels.  (affiliate linkThe one Sammie did was Mac and Cheese (her favorite)!  
  • Molly has been sketching and her ability is beyond what I would think a 9 year old would be at.  
  • Eric and I (and girls) are working on a project for our dart board. We don't want the darts to stick into the wall so we are creating a back drop for them (no judgement on how many corks we have saved up over the last 100
  •  Also got to visit with my son and his family last weekend...such a blessing to see him and his wife as parents. 

  • While they were here we played some family Scrabble and UNO (that's bubby on Zachary's team - BTW they won!)  
  • Zachary was gifted a new electronic dart board for his room and thankfully it gets him off the computer every now and then.
  • The black dog you see below is my granddoggy..thankfully (again) he gets along great with Lilly. 

Last Saturday hubby and I had our first date day in a LONG time...we stopped off a few places (including a reclaimed wood place) and some food for lunch and dinner...had a fun time discussing our goals for 2017 and plans for the kitchen renovation...

It was a great week for ducks in our area as the rain seemed to come almost every day.  Thursday we had some sun and it was nice to shove the kiddos outside for a bit for some Vitimin D.

Today we will be watching some of the Presidential Inauguration and discussing the future of our country among other things.

Things I am loving this week:

and recipe I am going to try:

Tonight a gal pal is coming over for some R&R, game playing and hanging out...The weekend is busy with martial arts, birthday parties and barn night at a friends' house..then Sunday is church and Grammie is coming over for football and fellowship! 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

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!�…
