About Jemma

                                           Welcome to my bright spot of the world.

This is where I share tried and true recipes, among many other things.
But rest assured I share only the recipes that have been cooked, and tested in my kitchen, if I won't eat it, I promise I won't share it with you.

My garden is a real honest and true producing garden.
I grow 90 % of my garden from seeds using only organic materials.
I am in my garden daily and I share tips on how to grow healthy, strong and producing plants.

I have enjoyed decorating since childhood and have even been known to decorate camper trailers too.
I think that they call it glamping now.
Shop your home is my motto to live by and I share a variety of tips on to do just that.

I write a weekly inspirational post, as I believe that we need as much Faith, kindness,
caring and understanding as we can get.

You will find an occasional fashion post, usually every other Friday.
My focus on fashion is to find you and I both affordable and classic styles.

Any DIY project that I can do, so can you.
I am not complicated in my craft projects, I like things that turn out.
Wreaths are sort of my thing too.

I currently co-host a weekly link party Thoughts Of Home On Thursday
It goes live every Thursday morning at 6:00 a.m.
We are a group of four Texas bloggers who love to throw a good link party!
I hope that you will join us.

I love to write!

Creative writing, reading and the English language is where my heart and

studies have been all of my life.

During 2015 a new series was born from my interest in writing and my passion to 

encourage myself and other women to Age With Style.

It is a project focused on nurturing the  Passion, Purpose and Productivity that we 

are all born with.

Some of you have asked, are you Jemma or Joyce?

I am both! So you may call me by either and I will answer:)

I was born Joyce Emma-some of my family calls me Jemma.

When I first began writing this blog, the majority of the family vote was

for the blog to be named At Home With Jemma

Now you know the rest of the story!
