You Just Never Know...Do You?

EDIT BELOW:  When you put something on a blog, you realize, of course, that it is in the public domain and may be seen and read by anyone. Little do you know, however, how far and wide your little seeds might scatter and where they will ultimately land. 

Today I got an email that I very nearly chucked into the spam file....but something told me to check it out first. I opened that email, and it was from a woman who works for a nationally known TV program, on that peacock network. She had seen a photo of my kitchen on my blog and wondered if I would give permission for them to use it on the show. I couldn't believe it.

I am under no illusions here, and I know that my photo will be used as the "before" kitchen; or as my daughter says, the one they proclaim as the disaster.  Apparently the theme of the segment  will be "how to update old Formica counter tops" and since mine are over thirty years old, they certainly fit that category!

Doubtless it will do no good, but I did mention that if they would like to come and update my kitchen or den, they are most welcome!

They will let me know if my photo is used on the show sometime tomorrow after they tape. If it will be used, I'll post an update here so you can watch the show.

EDIT:   Apparently I misunderstood how it works. The show in which they might use my photo tapes later today and will not be on TV until sometime later. I also heard that they found "a much worse" kitchen than mine, so they may not use my photo.  Seems orange form*ca is worse than yellow.....LOL

Hey - have 'em get your favorite handyman to do it! He's dang photogenic.

Sheri said...

Cool. But they should offer you the re-do or a trip to Bermuda. Something---don't your think?

Tracy said...

How cool is that!
You know, my husband LOVES HGTV and watches it religiously so maybe we'll see your kitchen :)

Hey thats really great... Way to go... I guess it pays to just keep on plugging away...

Hale McKay said...

You're right ... you never know ...

Lynn said...

Wow - that is interesting that it was spotted. Was it from a past blog post?

srp said...

Hey.. I think that if they use your picture as a before, they should be obligated to do the update and then the "after" shot. What good is a before shot without an after of the same?

Tracy, it isn't HGTV. If they tell me tomorrow that they used my photo, I'll post an update telling you when and where to see it.

Yes, Lynn, it was from a past blog post; probably about 2 years ago.

That's cool. Looking forward to reading your next post to see if they used your picture :)

I can't remember seeing your kitchen, but it must be interesting whatever it looks like and if you get some new worktops out of it, it's all good!

Pat said...

I think that will be tremendous fun and at the very least there is a post out of it.

What's with this? Old bloggers getting on TV - you and your counter top and me and my blogging. How about that. Maybe you will get a new kitchen out of this.

Granny Annie said...

Wow, your kitchen will be a celebrity. Too bad it can't give autographs.

Grannymar said...

That is cool! I look forward to hearing all about it.

Celia said...

It is a tiny world isn't it? Hope to see your kitchen.

Star said...
