Live simply, grow your own, make natural things

Hi! I’m Tanya, an organic gardener, soap maker, & creative DIYer dedicated to helping you give your home a green make-over.  There's a lot of fun to be had but the main focus of Lovely Greens is creating a low-impact and eco-friendly home through growing and making your own. 

Lovely Greens is about sharing ways you can green up your home on a budget

Ten years ago I was an ordinary professional, commuting to work, doing the 9-5 and buying everything I used in the home. I wasn’t happy though and I realized that I had a major disconnect between the life I wanted to live and the path I was on.

Mainly what it came down to is TIME. I wanted more time to do the things I wanted to do. What I found that is if costs are cut, then you don't have to work as hard to have the money you need to live.

Growing and making your own food, beauty items, soap, and even furniture saves money. Choosing to do it the natural way by avoiding unnecessary ingredients, reducing, and recycling makes living the good life good for the environment too.

I LOVE your website! The recipes, the gardening, the diy/decorating are all WONDERFUL. But what I love the most are your instructions and recipes for natural beauty products - especially the soaps. I have skin issues and have been wanting to make my own soap for AGES. 


I just want to say a big thank you for your inspiring videos! I have recently come across your channel and its been a blessing! I started creating my own little herb garden with mint, rosemary and thyme this year. We also have English and French lavender! I also have some sage grown from seeds.


Thanks, Tanya! 
I love your newsletters and videos and have planted some herbs for my soaps, and am making more infused oils for them.  You are an encouraging and inspiring presence in the world and here at my little studio!  Keep ‘em coming! :)
