We don’t have cable at the Woodwards, mostly because my hubby is cheap. But, it’s also because neither of us watch much television and the money would not be well-spent. Cable ain’t cheap, and we’d rather use that $60-$80/month another way. Or save it. Very novel.
Anyhoo, mostly I don’t miss it.
But, I miss HGTV. Sometimes, I really miss HGTV. Mostly, I can get my fix of beautiful homes through blogs. But, sometimes, I miss HGTV.
Did I mention that I kinda miss HGTV? But, until cable offers me an ala carte menu (hint, hint: cable), we will be sans-HGTV.
And, because my mother-in-law knows me (and loves me), she DVRed the first episode of “Sarah’s House” for me. She thought I’d like it. She was wrong.
I loved it. (Thanks, Joyce.)
I loved it so much that I made her pause it anytime someone dared to speak and then made it clear that no one was allowed to talk for the duration of the show.
Sarah bought this awesome old farmhouse on 50 acres (hello, jealous). She gutted it and will complete a room each week. Is this my kinda show or what?
The first week was the entryway/mudroom/bathroom, which was converted from the original (dark and dingy) living room.
I seriously adore it all.
- The red doors
- The old chest instead of a wall full of closets
- The fabric for curtains (seriously hunting down some of that for me)
- The old light fixture repurposed (it was an outdoor lantern)
- The woodwork and ceiling
