Flower Patch Farmhouse is here to help you create a enjoyable life on a budget through simple gardening, some DIY and easy recipes.
Hello, I am Pamela. The voice behind Flower Patch Farmhouse, a creative lifestyle blog about simple gardening, DIY decor and easy recipes that will become family favorites.
I began sharing my easy budget gardening methods, DIY on a dime projects and practical recipes in 2011. Prior to that I was a stay at home mom, avid decorative painter and instructor, sewing enthusiast and always an avid gardener. (I put all my painting tutorials on a blog of its own here: PamelaGroppe.com)
I have been inspired and taught by the strong women in my life who lived through the toughest of times and created cozy attractive homes via DIY long before it became a popular catch phrase. I learned to use tools and have confidence in my abilities. Watching my grandmother not only tear down old houses (she was the queen of re-purposing), build fences to whipping up delectable taste treats with the humblest of ingredients instilled in me the notion that you can do whatever you have a mind to, if you are willing to work hard.
I have loved photography since grade school and in 7th grade determined that is what I wanted my vocation to be. Life had a lot of detours for me and pursuing photography as a career did not come to be, and though it is a side benefit of this website/blog, it is one of the creative parts I truly enjoy.
Combining many of the many things I love to do into something I can share is a dream come true. So, please, do come and join me as I share my ever changing cottage garden, the renovation of our humble home and DIY/craft tutorials that are easy enough for beginners to master. All on a budget.
Things are always evolving here so I appreciate you joining me on the journey. If ever there is something you would enjoy seeing here that I can provide, please do leave a comment, suggestion or request.
Thank you so much for visiting!
