MY HGTV DATE...Oct 2nd!!!!

Pin It Now!


I've been checking the Rate My Space TV show listing every day, waiting to find out when I will be on. Today it was there!!!! The show will air on Thursday, Oct 2nd at 9:00PM. It will be aired 4 other times as well!
For those of you that are new to my blog...I was asked to be one of the inspiration rooms for HGTV's show called Rate My Space with Angelo Surmelis and we taped it last spring. It was such a fun experience! I'm a little nervous about seeing myself on TV and knowing that so many of you are going to be watching but it's exciting at the same time!

The photo above has nothing to do with this but I just felt I needed to put some sort of photo up there and this is one of my favorites of my apartment.

I've got my DVR set to record and can't wait to see it.

How fun. Are you going to have a party at your place so your friends can watch it with you? I would!

Here is hoping you like what they show and that they didn't cut out to much so we can have you on tv a long time!

Hugs,
Joanne

ROSE VINE COTTAGE said...

Hi Cindy,
Thanks for leaving me the comment and I agree with you. We would never be able to have all these friends to our homes and after being in a place for so long it's nice to get another persons opinion of what might look better. I am just bored with my living room right now and I thought maybe someone would have a good idea for me! Anyway have a great weekend and I will talk to you soon. By the way your room looks beautiful.(; Hugs~Kelly

Renata said...

Cindy,
I have been tvo'ing every show just to make sure I did not miss it.
I am almost as excited as you are!

Kim's Cottage said...

Woo Hoo! I've got my TiVo set to record it. Can't wait to see!

You really should put it on YouTube. Great idea!

Jannet said...

Congrats Cindy!!, wish I was able to watch it here in DK. But still I enjoy all your pics of your home. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend, Jannet

Sincerely Yours said...

Hi Cindy! I was wondering last night when they would get to you on HGTV; I've been watching every week! I think they should just do a show giving a tour of an entire house (like they used to with Kitty B!) showing all the great places out there instead of just a clip. (I can't spend what they do on a redo anyway!lol) Still love this view of your room! Have a great weekend - Sincerely, Jeannette

Counting Your Blessings said...

Ooo... I can't wait!! Congratulations, btw =) Blessings... Polly

I can't wait to see this it. And, it's my Mother-in-Law's birthday! he he he

I have to share with you that while visiting my aunt today, she had an antique dry sink she tried to sell at a garage sale. She sold it to me for $20. All I could think of was painting it white, from seeing all your beautiful furniture re-dos. I would like to do a vintage plate mosaic on the top. See, you inspire us!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

I'm putting it on my calendar! We'll all be watching.

Cindy, I'm so excited for you, and I can't wait to see you on TV!! I know you did a great job when they came to film you, and even though you're nervous about seeing yourself on TV, I know that you will look beautiful!! Just remember what an inspiration you've been to all your readers here on your blog, and think of how many MORE people you're going to be able to inspire by being on TV!!!

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Hi Cindy, I won't be able to see your place on HGTV, as I don't have cable..I'm bummed :(
Maybe someone could tape it and I could pay for the tape and postage?? I do enjoy your blog and all your decorating ideas.
Warmly, Deb

Gollum said...

Oh, I'm so glad to know the date. I have been waiting for this episode! How is your armoire coming along? I brought a blue/green chest home the other day (I posted a picture of it), and I'm thinking some appliques would really transform the chest.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Woohoo! That's not too far from now! Can't wait to see it! I don't have cable right now, but hope to go visit where someone does have HGTV.

How exciting for you!

I can't help but wonder if your landlord is going to be watching the show as well. *giggle*

Tracy said...

You must be so excited! Great to know this is coming up. I watch HGTV in crazy spurts, sometimes non-stop for weeks, then it seems like I keep seeing re-runs all the time so I stop watching it, so with my luck I would have missed it. Now I'll be sure to watch!

Shabbee Chick said...

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT! I'm setting the DVR right now-wait can I set it this early-okay, I'm writing it on my calendar RIGHT NOW!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

How exciting! I wish I had cable, I would absolutely watch.

Cindy, I think it's on 9pm for everyone which mean those on the East Coast will see it 3 hours before me!

Carolynn said...

oh my gosh, cindy.... in no way did i want my commnet that i left on your blog the other day to be 'mean'... i was simply curious why your post asks for opinions. i sure didn't want to stir anything up. i think i even mentioned that i didn't mean to sound 'harsh'....but was just asking. oops. i subscribe to your blog and have my own....and absolutely...we can do or say what we like. i didn't mean to be offense...and am quite sorry if i stirred things up with my question. again...i enjoy your photos and love the ideas. (i'm a SUPPORTER...not a meanie) :) Lindy

Cindy~ said...

Thanks for the reply! You can count on me to watch it also. ...Can't wait!

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Carolynn (Lindy) Sorry I misunderstood you! I guess I was just being defensive because of the rude comments from "that cold person" (I'm not mentioning his name anymore)!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio said...

Looking forward to it Cindy! I always watch that show and can't wait to see you on it...
Hugs,

Thank you for the information...I was worried I would miss it. Did you ever dream when you posted your first blog you would end up on TV? We're all very proud of you.

I love this picture of your apartment too. It gives beautiful overall look and feel for your cozy home.
Just another fan.

I'm concerned about your posts from Frosty (Mike) Unless u personally know him u are smart enough to know he is a potential predator. Any one who has read your blog can figure out where u live with the info u have provided about you & your children. While u may be flattered ,any manly man I know really wouldn't be viewing your blog. You have a young daughter that u have exposed so at least consider her! Please be cautious!!! Frosty's comments are so petty. None of us really knows you, we just know your taste and sense of style ,and that is what we appreciate and why we look at your blog.AGAIN PLEASE BE CAREFUL! Kindest Regards.

Liz said...

I was just thinking about it the other day! I'm glad it's coming soon. I will be watching!

Okay! I've marked my calendar! You should find some blogger girls in the San Jose area and invite them for a screening party. Wouldn't that be fun?
