Hi, I’m Tiffany!  Welcome to my blog, The Inspired Home And Garden.


Us at GarlandsI have the pleasure of doing the writing, photography, editing, idea generating, planting, sewing and most of the baking for TIH&G. My sweet husband, Mike, does the technical support, most of the cooking (how lucky am I?!) and is my biggest cheerleader. Sometimes our daughter pitches in with the cooking and the baking when she’s home from school. Together we are The Inspired Home And Garden family.

saving mommies 9Near and dear to my heart is Salt Creek International Women’s Health Foundation. Their singular purpose is to improve women’s health care in developing nations.  Their first project is getting local doctors trained in, and to supply them with the technology to save a woman’s life from blood loss during childbirth: in short, saving mommies.  You can read more under the SCIWHF tab above or click here.

Besides blogging, I am/have been an elementary school teacher (5th grade was my sweet spot), a landscape designer, a florist, an artist, a seamstress, a home remodel-“er”  plus many, many other things.

We recently moved to a fixer-upper in Southern California that probably should have been a tear-er-down-er. Luckily the garden is big and we grow lots of our own fruits, veggies, and herbs.

I’m thrilled to be able to share the talents of my friend Kathy Sullivan through her experiences of being a mother of the bride-to-be.  She’s hilarious and I know you’ll love her posts!

Nothing makes me happier than spending time with the people I love and laughing…lots of that!.  My interests are vast and I find inspiration everywhere.  My goal is to share those things that inspire me with you!  Hopefully, you will find inspiration here, too!
