Do you deserve an extreme home makeover?

Do you deserve an extreme home makeover?

Do you know a family whose home deserves an Extreme Home Makeover? The producers of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition are looking for a Washington family to build a new home for.  

“We are looking for the deserving people and inspiring families that America can really root for,” says Supervising Casting Producer Adam Drucker.  

What does it take to be picked for an Extreme Makeover?  

"We're looking for those special people who have amazing strength of character and never give up. Whether it’s keeping their chin up in really tough circumstances or going out of their way to help others. We want to help people whose stories have really affected their community or made a big difference in other people's lives.”

Gig Harbor gardeners show off private gardens this weekend

I love this time of year, despite our unseasonably chilly spring, the garden is coming alive.  I love walking around my yard, in my robe and slippers, coffee in hand each morning.  My neighbors probably think I'm a bit loony, but I do go outside nearly every morning.  Some times I even am compelled to grab the pruners and cut back blooms, pull a few weeds, deadhead.  Ohhhh I love the smell of slug bait in the morning!

Yes I love to garden, and if you are a gardener you know what I am talking about.  It is so satisfying to watch your garden come alive in the spring.  Sweet peas starting to bloom this week, strawberries are ready, roses are peaking and slugs are having a party with all the rain!  This is what gardening in the Pacific Northwest is! 

Gardeners love to share - gathering ideas from each other, sharing plant cuttings or bouquets or all that extra zucchini!  Gardening is a labor of love that is meant to be shared.  This weekend at the Gig Harbor Garden Tour, seven local gardeners do the ultimate sharing by opening up their home gardens to over 1000 strangers.
