Farmhouse Friday

Happy Friday Friends! 

Finishing up the last full week of January. Winter has come to visit this week after having a warm weekend last weekend.  

Last Friday:  
  • We all watched the Presidential Inauguration with Bubby. (this was school for the day)
  • We played Scrabble and UNO while we watched the new President being sworn in.  
  • Lots of sunshine last weekend...we got out and of course Lilly got out too!
  • Lots of reading too!

Back on my good eating plan. So far so good!  I also put wine on a hiatus until further notice. I realized that I was really working out hard only to drink the calories later at night, going no where fast! 

We finally finished our dart board and have been teaching the children how to play.  The game room side of the basement is coming together nicely!

Monday night 3 inches of snow fell on top of an inch of ice. Hubby worked from home that day.  Kids were able to get out and go sledding for a while. 

Snap Circuits for the afternoon were in order on Tuesday also! 

Last weekend we also had Barn Night at a friend's garage/barn.  As you can see Lilly made herself right at home in front of the wood stove.  We played games and at yummy pizza. The kids even got outside to play at night.

We also had my mother in law over last Sunday for the playoffs!  Really hoping Atlanta wins next weekend! 

 For school this week: 

We were finishing up some lose ends of projects we started in the beginning of the year. 

The girls are also working on their SPACE project for the library presentation next Friday. 

We had the "fireplace" guy here Thursday night to give us an estimate on replacing the existing fireplace in the house (not efficient and not working property). That will to be put on the back burner (pun intended) as the cost was not in our budget right now.  

What's UP for the weekend: 

Martial design at LOWES....50th birthday party for a gal as always...

Hope your weekend is awesome!

Looks like a great week. The snow is lovely ~ not so much on the ice. Have a blessed weekend.

That sounds like a wonderful week! The picture of the dog is so funny. I would do the same thing, get close to the fire to stay warm.
Even though I checked and rechecked the presidential inauguration stream through the morning, all of a sudden it was afternoon, and I realized we'd forgotten to watch! Crazy!

We had snow on top of ice a few weeks ago and were trapped at home, too. I love being trapped at home. :)

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!�…
