You Go Girl!

Sometimes, someone, somewhere will do something extra-ordinary
and you can't help but feel inspired or awed by their clever ideas, inspirational vision and true grit!

I have come across some amazing blogs and stories of individuals that I want to give a personal recognition.
So here's to you ladies, I am giving you my own personal recognition.

"You Go Girl"


This time last year, I did not have a clue what a blog was.  Never heard of them.
Then I decided to surf the web for some Christmas decorating ideas.
I came across this amazing blog site that got me hooked!
Susan from A Southern Daydreamer has the most amazing collection of Christmas trees.

Trees, as in many!
I spent hours on her blog in total amazement.
I also spent hours on her blog trying to figure out how to work this thing on the internet called a "blog"!
I  too have several Christmas trees.  I just keep collecting more ornaments each year.
lt was nice to discover Susan and others have the same love of Christmas as I do!

Totally amazing!  A Southern Daydreamer

Thank you my friend for being an excellent mentor for me.
I can only hope that my collection one day will be as great as yours!
Susan holds an awesome weekly link party - "Outdoor Wednesday".

This lady has vision and inspiration!

Let's have a look at the craftmanship (or should I say craftwomanship) work
Connie over at Hartwood Roses has achieved.

She built this....

Holy want to talk about vision and iron will !!
With a wee bit of help from hubby, Connie has built this awesome greenhouse to house her award winning roses.

If you take a tour of her blog you will see that greenhouses are not the only thing this home renovator handywoman will tackle a hammer with!

Well done Connie....and....girl power!

The Taj Mahal took over 20 years to build.
The Pyramid of Giza took 20.
Well Tina over at The Enchanted Home has the patience of a saint!
For two and a half years she has been building her dream.

Stunning beauty!  The Enchanted Home

 She has stamina and perseveration to see this dream become a reality!
Twenty years ago my then husband and I built a new house.
That took 6 months and I could barely wait to move in!

The Enchanted Home
Your home is truly stunning and you should be proud of your successful accomplishment!

Clever lady with true grit!
