Tune in Tonight: I am hoping that HGTV's new show "Secrets From a Stylist" will renew my spirits so that I'll start watching this channel again. I used to be very addicted to HGTV - but the channel has lost its lustre for me over the years. Too many cheaply created or formulaic programs (endless Househunters ad nauseum) had me switching the dial to find other prograns more worthy of my time. So I hope that this year's Design Star winner, Emily Henderson, will create a buzz on that network. Then I'll gladly return to watch!

She has a modern., yet traditional take on designing - which I am looking forward to. I like the way that she can take an unused, non-functional room and create a useful and beautiful space. Practicality - not something over-the-top - is what people really need to see on television today.

I love her style and I am rooting for her. Just hope that she has taken some diction lessons - and that she starts to speak a little more slowly. Let's see how she does tonight - Saturday at 9PM. Let me know what you think of the show!
