Farmhouse Friday

It's Friday and a fun Friday indeed!  We always have fun Friday here at our homeschool.  Games, treats and sometimes out to lunch!

Today the girls have presentations at the local library and friends are coming over after for space cakes (Space is the theme for the presentations).  Should be fun! (watch IG for details)

Last weekend was cold but sunny and I had all my children, my mom, DIL and grandbaby girl here for the day after church. Dogs included.  We played games, ate yummy happy hour type food and enjoyed each others company.  LOVE DAYS like that. 

Working on eating healthy and getting back to my better habits! 

Planning out's My Birthday Month!  Turning 49 years young towards the end of the month.  Last year in my 40's...keeping a "grateful" journal of sorts in IG with postings each day of what I am grateful for. 

It's been a sad week in the homeschooling community. With an "on line" friend losing her son. A Go Fund Me account has been set up to help them off set the costs of burial.  You can find out more at Christy's You Tube page.  Pleased pray for them. 

Keeping busy with our Chalk Pastel projects and Art for Kids.  

The weather has been snowy but sunny, which is fine with me but with six more weeks of winter, uncertain what that will mean for us. The kids have not been skiing yet!! 

Up for the weekend:

Today - Library presentations, Church tonight for the girls and me and the hubby taking Zachary out to dinner. 

Saturday - SHREK the musical is playing at a local middle school and we have friends who are starring in it so we will be going to support them.  Going to be prepping a lot for food for Sunday!

Sunday - church and then SUPERBOWL 51!  We are having a party (of course) and we will be praying Atlanta takes the trophy!

Enjoy your weekend and 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!�…
