HGTV featured my 2010 Halloween table!

Today, I happened to stumble across HGTV's  Halloween decorating ideas
 I still go on their site often for inspiration.
Can you imagine my surprise and  shock when I saw MINE was amongst the fabulous ideas shown. They never let me know, therefore, I had no clue.

  It was because of the RMS {rate my space} friends that I made, that I started a blog with all their encouragement. There are so many to speak of, I would not even know where to begin.
Thank you HGTV/RMS!~

You opened doors for me, I never would have dreamed of.
Oh and from what I hear, {Kim} you will be happy about this too, they are making some positive changes over there....perhaps their rating and comment moderation system.
What all did come about for me being a part of that system....and/or network was this.....

Friendships, blogging, magazine feature, just to name a few. I would have never put myself out there like I have. I suppose, I just did not have the confidence in myself.  Not that I am all confident now, because believe me, I AM NOT...I'm just not afraid to expose myself anymore. It's not easy.  What I have learned along the way is....
 When one door closes, another one opens
{or vice versa, I always screw these sort of cliche's up}
Hold on to your dreams....
I still have a few more I would like to I keep on keeping!
You just never know what is next for you in life.
So go for it TODAY!
You may view the feature

I was just thinking yesterday, I need to get on, my Halloween table scape for this year.
Last years was a lot of FUN!

Note sure what I will come up with, this year. 

I guess you will just have to stay tuned!
I still have my mantel, some outdoors and my little spanish table to share with you.
Whew...I have been busy this season for sure.
Thank you so much stopping over. I am giddy with delight that HGTV featured me, and just had to share. I know really it is not that  big  of a deal. 
However, the history I have had there, it certainly had me tickled!

Congrats, Debbie. It's strange why HGTV would not notify you. The same thing happened to me when another blogger told me our fountain was featured there and I had no idea. I am going there right now to see yours. I really enjoyed Charleston and yes, the weather was perfect. Come by when you have a chance. I have a giveaway...Christine

Blogger Debbie-Dabble Blog and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

Congrats!! Good for you!!

I used to watch HGTV all the time and then they got rid of all the shows that i loved and everything sort of went to mid century modern which is so not my style, so I stopped watching it. They also focus a lot on resale of homes and I will probably die in mine so I have no interest in that.
I find that on RMS, some people can really be cruel too.
I guess I find more inspiration in Blogland for the home styles that I like rather than on TV anymore...

Congratulations Debbie! HGTV is the channel that is "on" the most at our house. Speaking of confidence, I would never be confident enough to put my house on "Rate My Space" like you did. I was not blogging last year at this time so I missed seeing your fun table. Love the big bones across the plates! I saw this post over at "At the Picket Fence".
