Farmhouse Friday

Happy Friday friends. I am not really sure where March went but I am glad it's almost over!! The weather here in the Hudson Valley NY area has been cold, white and windy.  I am sooo ready to see SPRING!!!

Catching ya'll up a little since I have not posted a Farmhouse Friday in a while!


Loving our Chalkpastel.com FREE LIVE Videos on Facebook with Hodgepodge Mom and Nana. Check out their Facebook page



  • The snow has been ridiculous with the March storm. Thankfully we did not lose power but we did have days of shoveling out.  
  • Sammie is in her last few months of Black Belt classes and graduates with her black belt in June (Lord willing)  
  • Our neighbor's chickens are finally producing eggs for the community. Fresh eggs are THE BEST!




  • Our newest game obsession is Rummikub. My gal pals got me hooked so I had to buy it for our home. 
  • Sammie and Molly have had fun at the library programs each month. 
  • Dr. Seuss - Read Across American month - this year we did not nearly do as much as we had in the past. 





  • As we do each year, we went to our BFF's for St. Patrick's Day and had a blast. I met up with my old collage roommate (lives in the same town as our BFF's) and we were able to bring Lilly Dog with us also to our BFF's house. 
  • I got a chance to zoom thru the grocery store Wegmans and find some of my all time favorite cookies - Half Moons (they call them black and whites down here but do not taste nearly the same) sadly the cookies did not last long 8(.

A Seasonal Start in Spring Chalk Pastels


Homeschool - the children are working hard in their 3rd quarter. Zachary is halfway done with his Science Order & Reality thru A Beka.   The girls are having a great time studying what they learn on the Popular Mechanics For Kids videos. 


Other subjects moving right along.  We have planned a few Spring trips (one with kids and one girls trip only!)  Watch for those! 

In the know....

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 ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
