A Toast!

Today, I'd like to celebrate the success of some fellow bloggers: Rashon over at Mr. Goodwill Hunting and Kristin over at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia.

I want to congratulate Rashon on appearing not once, but twice so far on the Nate Berkus Show! Rashon has an amazing flair for picking out gorgeous pieces at thrift stores and creating wonderful decors out of other people's discarded items. Bet you if people saw how he transformed their rejects into such elegance and glam, they would think twice about tossing them out! I myself have been known to hit a thrift store or two and doing some "curbside shopping" (I will post someday about some of the curbside items I have picked up), but my picks compared to Rashon's were no-brainers, whereas he has a talent for seeing the hidden potential. He also has a gift for television and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw more of Rashon as time goes by. Congrats on your success, Rashon!

Now, today, over at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, Kristin shared with us the good news that her DYI kitchen is featured in Better Homes and Gardens Kitchen and Bath Ideas magazine! Wow, this is what the power of blogging can do! Kristin is at once resourceful and talented and this wonderful combination allows her to decorate her house in the most elegant manner on a budget. Her DIY projects go beyond the sanding and lick of spray painting that I do, we're talking about major renovations here! I greatly admire this ability in people as I have a lot of great ideas, but it is hard to implement them when you're on a budget and have limited skills.

So I raise my glass to these two wonderful bloggers and I hope that like me you all share in their success!
