About Patti



Hi, I’m Patti. Welcome to Hearth & Vine. 


About Hearth and Vine

This blog started out as a gardening blog called Garden Matter. In 2017 the name changed to Hearth and Vine to better reflect the content, which included DIY projects, home décor, and recipes in addition to gardening.




What You Will Find Here

At Hearth and Vine I’m sharing a fresh, new take on many projects and skills that I’ve learned over the years. You can expect to find fun, easy, and budget friendly projects, gardening tips, and recipes. For me, there’s nothing more rewarding than creating something beautiful without having to spend a lot of money.

About Me

  • I was born and have lived in Southwestern Pennsylvania most of my life. I also spent a few years in Baltimore, Maryland and Nashville, Tennessee.
  • I’m the middle child of 5 siblings. We all live close by, and we love to have a good time. We’re referred to as “the funny family.”
  • I have a passion for finding or making beautiful things on the cheap.
  • I am married to my college sweetheart of 31 years. We have two 20 something daughters who we adore.
  • My first taste of growing plants started with a spider plant and an African Violet at the age of 10 and I’ve been hooked ever since.
  • I enjoy shopping with my girlfriends, big family dinners, chocolate, and a juicy novel.
