This is MY old house...

02 February 2010

From the time I was about 5 years old I liked to watch This Old House on TV.  Well, the truth is that as a child I was not allowed to watch any TV on weekdays.  On the weekends, particularly Saturday, all the kids had to do our chores before we were allowed to watch any cartoons.  That meant we usually missed the kid shows before we were done with the long list of to dos that accompanies a big family.

Basically we were desperate to watch something, so we usually watched PBS's shows, This Old House, New Yankee Workshop and Hometime (do you remember that show?).  It was like pre-HGTV and I loved it.

Well, we don't have TV now.  I am glad, it gives me a lot more free time (and there is always Hulu for Lost and Biggest Loser!!), but I miss watching This Old House, I do subscribe to the magazine and emails though.  I really enjoy reading them, and seeing how they change things, and thinking what I would have done in their situation.

The other day I sent over a few projects and they put them up on their website!  They may do this to all the submissions, but I was super excited.

Here are the links:

How to Get Larger Base Moldings

Check them out and please rate them... hopefully nicely!  I would love the chance to get published...

I too love TOH since childhood and am also a magazine subscriber. I participated in this contest last year, and while not a finalist, it was nice to see the all around talent. I'm going to submit some projects this weekend and I'll surely vote for yours.

I remember Home Time too. I think that was filmed in MN (where I live). Congrats on the features!

That is so cool that you are on that site! I went and rated, wish I could have put a 200 for the molding idea - I ADORE that one!!!

That is awesome! And that was so our family growing up. We loved those shows!

I loved all of those shows. We don't have tv either so I miss them. And my parents live in Ft.Worth...well technically, River Oaks and I'm missing the sunshine and warmth.

I totally used to watch all those shows with my dad when I was 4 or 5. Loved them!

That is awesome. I just subscribed to the magazine. Still waiting on my first issue.

That is so awesome. Larry & I are This Old House junkies too. We miss that show and all the DIY shows. Maybe eventually, Hulu will add This Old House to their ever growing show catalog. They have curb appeal which is fun to watch. Honestly I miss Project Runway more than anything.
We rated you. I am sure you guys could put together a book on all the awesome projects you have done.
