Burlap and TV

Yesterday I had the opportunity of going with my daughter to a local TV station because her blog Tatertots and Jello.was featured one of their segments.  Of course it had snowed the night before so we loaded all the necessary equipment she needed into the car as the snow filled our shoes.  We  parked in the wrong garage and so arrived one minute later than planned and scrambled to get everything out onto the set before the show started.  Jen was the second segment.
It was her first time on TV and she was a little bit scared (or maybe a lot, really) but she did an awesome job and of course, as her mom I was very proud of her.  Here she is with the hosts of the show Brooke and Darrin
I forgot my camera again, but I took pics with hers the whole way through as she demonstrated how to make her original burlap wreaths.
You can find her tutorial for them here. If you want fun, creative, and inexpensive ideas for your home and family please check out her blog.  You can also learn our fate as we are both direction-challenged!
It was a fun experience for both of us!

The specific antique shop I referred to was Blue Moon Antiques on North 13th Street in Boise's Hyde Park in the Historic North End. Janice has lots of lovely vintage linens. Next to her shop is Forget-Me-Not, another of my favorites. A block down the street is Acquired Again. If you are visiting, Hyde Park has some fun restaurants. On Overland, on the "Bench" is the Antique World Mall. Lots of vendors. I featured it on one of my postings. Enjoy!

Love,
Susan and Bentley
