DIY- history or trivia?

I just saw a posting ( ) that mention Lynette Jennings. Made me realize that even though I was a fan, it had been quîte awhile since I had thought of her. I am sure their are others. I am hoping some hometalkers take a moment to share some of the DIYers from the past.

    I used to watch Kitty Bartholomew on HGTV with my sister. I think we mostly watched it for her awesome hair  but also for the awesome homes!

    I love this idea- When we was in primary school, if we were home sick, we were allowed to watch "trading spaces" and fantasize about what we would do if we could re-do our room as well

    Shoshana's post centered on Kitty Bartholomew . I remembered the name but couldn't picture her face. A Google search yielded this slide show ( ) of DIY shows. The content on the internet always amazes me.

    I loved watching Kitty and the other shows of that time
    period. There are so fewer of those types of shows on now.
    Seems to be mostly buying, flipping or major redos. We still
    have a few laughs over the decorators who covered the walls
    with straw, with toddlers in the Or covering bathroom
    walls with silk flowers.

    Ms. Jennings was one of the very first craft/DIY/decorating programs I ever watched! Actually, i wish it was still much better than what's on today!

    I believe she is living in New Mexico.
