I CANNOT BELIEVE IT!

Pin It Now!


Remember how happy I was when my dining room was on the front page on HGTV's Rate My Space? Well, HGTV has now put me on the front page of their HGTV main website! Go to www.hgtv.com and scroll down! I really was doing the happy dance today!!!

They even added "This single mom on a budget has perfected the look of shabby chic"

Okay, I need to come down a little bit and go grocery shopping now!

Hi Cindy

Congratulations!

You know, the really lovely thing about that is you are "competing" with people who may have spent lots (and lots) of money.

Yet, yours looks as good or better than any of them.

Great work!

GREAT BALLS OF FIRE, CINDY, GIRL...
WOW!! I had to go over to HGTV and look and, yep, there you are, right on their front page. I am not one bit surprised...your home is lovely and your decorating skills are awesome. Give that job of yours 2 weeks notice, take that decorating job someone was talking about...you could make a fortune! And, I would LOVE for you to write a decorating book on doing it with a budget. It would be a Best Seller.
So proud of you! ~bj

That's so terrific, Cindy! It looks like they switched it out to a dorm room now. I guess it is school time. I know you'll be back on soon. Have a great day!

Hey, Cindy. This is my first comment EVER on a blog!, but I wanted to let you know that you were on HGTV's main page since at least last Tuesday...that's how I found you. I went online to see who won the Design Star contest Monday night and there it was, including the quote about 'single mom on a budget...' So, happy birthday, and enjoy. I bet something comes out of the publicity!
