Killlashandra at Full Time in New Mexico has given me this award! I am so pleased that she deems me worthy. I've drooled over this award quite a bit during my journeys around Blogland. I think it's beautiful.
Remember the game of gossip where you whisper a sentence into a person's ear and then that person tells the next, and so on until the last person repeats what she has heard--usually quite a different sentence? That has happened here! Something looked missing from the rules so I determined to get to the origin of this special award. Impossible you say? Ha--fooled you! Nothing is impossible if a person is willing to sacrifice untold hours! I did find the original name and rules, which I've listed here.
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and which also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog so that it can be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link of the blog that presented him/her the award.
4. The award winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link arte y pico blog so everyone will know the origin of this award. [If my high school Spanish serves me right, this is translated to mean "little art."]
5. Show these rules.
So many of my blogging buddies already have the Arte y Pico award, and even though they are eligible to receive it more than once, I'd rather give it to one who has not yet had the pleasure. The winners, in no particular order are:
Kay located dish diva.
Sally (nice name!) found salmagundi.
Suzanne located Colorado Lady.
Cathy found Melodies and Hymnsongs.
Elizabeth located Thoughts from an Evil Overlord.
Drop by these blogs and see if you don't agree that they are deserving of this beautiful award.
Patty at Pip Stitch presented me with this colorful commenter award. Now, does this mean I talk too much?
Patty loves things vintage, especially aprons. She is a crafty person--the good kind who has an informative blog, and she's eager to share ideas and patterns.
I appreciate this because I really try to make positive comments on the blogs I visit, and it's nice to be noticed. Blogging is a conversation, and to visit a blog and not leave a comment, is just like visiting in a home and not speaking to the hostess. Therefore, I try to always "put in a word."
There are many who deserve this award, but I'm limited to five. I pass it along to these terrific commenters who often make my day:
Carol at Charli and Me.
Theresa at Sentimental Journey.
Rachel at Christians in Good Company.
Shannon at Confuzzled Books.
Judi at Judi Creations.
I urge you to visit these ladies and check out their blogs, making certain to leave them a comment!
