Sharing My St. Patrick’s Day Pillows on TV!

One of my snow day projects this winter was making St. Patrick’s Day pillows.   Imagine my delight when Lindee Katdare, host of Daytime Blue Ridge on WSLS in Roanoke, asked me to share my project on her show.

Of course I agreed to be on the show, and headed to Roanoke on Monday to share my project.  My friend Suzanne went with me which made the day even more fun.Sharing St. Patrick's Day pillows on BlueRidge Day Time


I had never been in a television station and enjoyed being a part of a live show.  Lindee and her co-host Natalie Faunce made me feel so comfortable,  I honestly felt like I was chatting with two friends when I shared how I made my pillows.  Lindee not only hosts a television show, she’s a mom of three and writes a blog, The Lindee Tree.  I met Lindee last summer when I attended the Haven Conference in Atlanta and it was great to see her again.St. Patrick's Day Pillows on Blue Ridge Day Time


I was nervous but not deathly scared.  Since she show was live, I did have a slight fear that I would say something silly but I didn’t.

You can watch the segment here:

This is the Food Lion kitchen in the WSLS studio.  Isn’t it pretty?  Cory from Playdates and Prescriptions shared her Lucky Charm Treats.  I didn’t realize it until after the show, but Cory is the daughter of one of my blogging friends, Grammy Goodwill.  Isn’t that ironic?WSLS Roanoke Kitchen

After the show, Suzanne and I went to Black Dog Salvage before heading home.  If you watch Salvage Dogs, you know that Black Dog Salvage is the spot for buying architectural elements from homes and businesses from as far away as Missouri.  I’ll share pictures from this awesome store in another post.  In the meantime, enjoy this post from a previous Black Dog visit.

Fun Fact:  My great-great grandfather built the house next to Black Dog Salvage.  He was an Italian stone mason whose work can be seen in many spots around Roanoke, including The Hotel Roanoke.


  1. Paula! You did such a great job!! Isn’t Daytime such a fun show to be on?! I’m jealous you got to do it with Lindee. That is so fun! I also loved learning about your family ties to the house next to Black Dog salvage. So neat!

    1. Thank you, Megan. You should contact her with an idea. She seemed very open to guests. Maybe we should propose to share the American Odyssey Race!!


  2. What a coincidence, Paula, for you to be on the same episode with Cory. And I was so afraid that someone had hijacked your St. Patrick’s Day pillows. Too funny.

  3. This is great, Paula! You did a wonderful job. And what great exposure for your blog! Hope you get lots of new readers. 🙂

    I’m proud of you and so happy for you. You deserve the greatest success!

  4. The entire experience was such a fun one! I’m thankful to have met you and looking forward to getting together soon! Love the connection you have with my mom!
