Hey Friend! So glad you’re here!
Welcome to Cotton and Tea, my little sanctuary. I’m Patricia, a southern girl with a strong European heritage. I’m engaged to my high school sweetheart, working on growing our little family, and trying to find our dream home! I’m lucky to be a SAHM which is amazing especially because I’m a homebody and love working on little projects!
Why start a blog?
When I was younger I thought my brother and sister took all the artistic abilities and left me with none! But when I was introduced to Farmhouse Decor and all kinds of wood decor, that all changed. Whenever I see something, my mind instantly thinks about how I could make it, so I rarely ever can bring myself to buy something! The best part of making something is I know I can tweak it to what I like better (giving it my own personal touch). That’s where my DIY section comes in! I love to make things, especially if they save some major bucks!
I started making my own home decor pieces because being in our 20’s, in a one income family, with a baby, we were on a tight budget! My love for decorating just wasn’t in the budget like I so desperately wanted it to be, so I found a way to get the things I want. Decor can get prettttttty pricey! But you can save some maaajorrrr mullaaaa if you just make it. So as my house transforms into the home that I want it to be and my little family grows, ill share it all with you!
Other than home decor…
My fiance and I recently switched over to a natural and clean healthy lifestyle (for the most part…we try our best lol ), which includes products we use on our skin and foods we put in our bodies. So I’ll definitely share some products that we love and some delicious clean recipes that we can’t get enough of!
Also, be warned, I think Im funny so my posts won’t be your everyday kinda read. 🙂
Anywho, I am truly blessed to have found my passion and I’m super excited to share what I love with you!
