Kitchen Update - so close to the end!

Gosh friends it's been over a month since I have posted on the new kitchen renovation!  SO sorry it took me this long, but reality of it, the kitchen took that long...

We are 95% done but I am ready to show you the progress! 

In my last post about the kitchen I showed you the beginning and the progress of cabinets. But no upper cabinets, lighting, counter tops were in yet...

Drum roll please....

Our forever/dream kitchen is almost complete...we could not be happier. Our contractor is top notch and a perfectionist, which is great! 

Beverage bar/buffet. This area will double as a food buffet when needed. For everyday purposes it's our beverage bar/center.  You can see the baseboard heating is not yet in and the moldings will be finished then. 

So happy we went with the grey grout for the subway tile. LOVE the contrast with the counters. 

Island seats 8 comfortably and we can sneak in another two if we need to.  

I can wait for the finished touches and to see you the build-ins and the (not yet finished) barn door to the laundry room.  Plus some moldings and painting still needs to be completed. 

We celebrated our one year anniversary of moving in on July 5th and so happy this HUGE reno project is behind us! 

If you are interested in our cabinets and appliances you can check out my last post where I linked them for you. 

I will do a total vendor list and update when it's complete along with a video tour!

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!�…
