Winners and a video

Hello all!

I finally got video of the Thrifty Decor Chick segment taped -- this is the third try. :) I gave up on shushing the cats, so there’s a point when you’ll hear our (pee) cat doing her totally weird meow. It’s a little freaky sounding, so sorry about that. :)

Oh, and she’s rubbing against the volume control about half way in, so it gets a teensy bit loud for a few seconds. GAH.

But anyway…here you go!:
 
I’ll be back later with a HUGE decrapification project! WHOO!

  1. YAY! Congratulations!
    (Is it terribly selfish of me to be a little bummed that there will now be even MORE competition on all your great give-aways?)
    But still... That's FANTASTIC.

  26. I heart you soooo much - we don't have tv, so thank you for posting your segment here (which I will check out, after I'm finished gushing at you, ha). I peruse an embarrassingly large volume of blogs (did I mention we don't have TV?) - but yours is my fave! You're the polar opposite of pretentious, you're not perfect - and you happily share this with the rest of us (thank you!) - AND you are funny. Just what so many of us mamas need. Please keep doing exactly what you've been doing - it's awesome!

  27. How extremely exciting! I am so happy for you! Love your blog! You are so funny and have such great ideas!

  29. Thank you so much!! I love you to pieces for showing us that! I was so frustrated that I don't get that show! It was amazing - and I hope you get tons of traffic from it, write a book, and have a movie made with Reese Witherspoon starring in it!! You deserve it all girl!! (I think Julia Roberts would be a better pick though - looks more like you)
    What? You think that was a shameless way to get on your good side so that you remember us little people when you hit it bigger?? I am offended at the thought.....:)

  30. I LOVE it!! What a neat feature. And when you said he was going to feature one of your projects I KNEW that was going to be the one. I think that is what you are best known for (when I talk to others about you) which is funny because when I think of you the first thing I think of is DIY moulding!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Okay, you're officially big time!! ;) Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh Yeah...You're DEFINITELY a ROCK STAR! SWEEEET! :)

  34. I was working from home Tuesday and was able to watch The Nate show for the first time. After he spoke of your site, I immediately looked it up. Wow! Your site is beautiful! Made not feeling well and working from home a little easier.

    I work for HSN and see Nate when he is preparing to go on the air or meeting with the buying staff. I plan on thanking him for sharing your site.

    I too am a thrifting fanatic! Nothing other than my HD TV, surround sound and kitchen appliances, is brand new. I thrift every weekend and most days during the week, at lunch.

  35. CONGRATS SARAH!
    YOU DESERVE THAT!!!!!!!!

  36. Congratulations, sweetie! Nate is a smart cookie to include you on his show. Now he needs to have you come film a segment for him. Like maybe at some convenient time when you need a trip to NYC. I mean, now that band season is over, maybe you and your husband should go. Yes, I think Nate would want both of you to come to New York, don't you?

    ReplyDelete
  37. That is so incredibly awesome!!! Congratulations!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. congrats - that is such a great plug!!!! I must say the Cloche on your site is what got me to hang around the first time and make a comment :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. SO WONDERFUL!! I missed the show by about 30 minutes that day for some reason (totally got side tracked) so I've been waiting to see this. M I just realized as I was watching that if I didn't read your blog and hadn't seen those projects before, I'd be in awe of how professional they look!!! I think I'd probably dismiss them even - knowing I couldn't do that dining room or that island myself. It was like a reminder for me of how much of a higher level the projects you do are!!! Yet - you show us step by step how we can do it.....minus hubby! I'll just say, THAT'S why you ended up on the Nate show!!! Be prepared. Your probably going to end up ON the show one day!
