Beginnings and the HGTV Special

While this little ol' blog is still in it's infancy I'd like to give credit where credit is due.  I certainly don't have the computer skills to put together a blog banner much less one as fabulous as the one at the top of this blog!  This banner and button are the genius of the creative guru that is Katie Runnels.  If you have never been over to Katie's blog, The Constant Gatherer, then it's your lucky day because I am pointing you in the right direction. 

One of the things that I am hoping to do when we get over to Tennessee next August to begin shopping at the WLYS, is to hook up with HGTV.   At the very least we hope to come across where they are filming for their annual special about the yard sale.  In my wildest dreams I would love to star in the 2010 Endless Yard Sale Special!!!

This year HGTV picked out 3 teams of shoppers and gave each team $500 to shop for a room makeover.  HGTV calls their special "The Endless Yard Sale" and this year's installment airs this Sunday at 8pm EST.

If you follow the link over to the Endless Yard Sale page on HGTV you will find several articles with lots of pictures.  You can be sure that I looked at every one of those and read all the captions.  One of the pictures mentions that it was taken in Clarkrange, TN.  So over to mapquest I go.

Clarkrange is north of Crossville, TN where I am starting and south of Jamestown, TN (official home of the WLYS) so YES, I will be traveling through Clarkrange, TN.

Also, I want to thank everyone that has stopped by and anyone that has left a comment.  I'd love to reply to your comments but I can only do so if you have an email link in your blogger profile.   You can email me anytime just by following the link over in the sidebar. 

Enjoy the show!


  1. I just watched the show tonight and saw last year's. I told my 14 year old daughter, girlchild, you and I are SO going to do that! I'm going to keep an eye on your blog and live through you, two, until we can get it together for the big adventure!
