Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

A bit of fun news! I received a call last week from the show, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" -- Is this a scam I thought?? Nope, it's real...So packages of hand painted goodies are off to their new shabby chic makeover location. (Can't disclose just yet).

I'm off to where the house will be re-built to help with the decorating.
I'm not sure if my items will make the show, but so thrilling to be a part of a wonderful cause!

Wish me luck! :)

Very exciting Jo-Anne! I'm sure your touch will truly make this new house a home. Please keep us posted on when the show will air.
I also want to thank you - I received my copy of your book last week and am devouring it! I absolutely love each breathtaking page, and I just blogged about it.
It's a classic! - Susan

Oh what a wonderful adventure! Too exciting for words.

A Shabby Moment in Time said...

Jo-Anne...this is sooo exciting. That's one of my all time favorite shows. Please DO let us know what episode your items will be featured in if they should use them. Wow Jo-anne...all this makes my head spin so I can only imagine how YOU must be feeling. Between your new magazine, writing for Romantic Homes, and then being called for Extreme must feel like your dreaming!!! You deserve it. All your hard work is paying off.
Blessings & Hugs,

A Shabby Moment in Time said...

Best of luck Jo-anne! Embrace all the excitment of your new endeavors. If you're looking for some photo ops, I'll be a guinea pig for you (although that word doesn't sound very lady like... )LOL I also have some beautiful grandbabies... just sayin'. Since I didn't win your lovely magazine, I'll be ordering it asap. Did you see that The Wrentham Country Store was named in Flea Market Style Magazine as one of the top 80 Antique Stores in the Country? We're all so excited.
Blessings & Hugs,
