Arte y Pico Award

Oh my! I've been honored with an Arte y Pico award from Needlefingers!! Thank you ever so much. I'm touched and honored!

Here are the rules from Farmwife and Needlefingers:

1) Show the award. Link back to the blog that gave you the award.

2) Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award because of creativity, design, interesting material, and contributions to the blogger community, no matter of language, and link to them.

3) Leave comments on the blogs to let them know you've given them an award.

4) Show the link to the Arte y Pico blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) Show these rules.

The following are blogs and bloggers that inspire me with their endless creativity, joy and imagery:

Black Dog Knits: What can I say? Nora is incredible...her photography, her knitting, her creativity, her writing...every post and every image is infused with her spirit. I can't tell you how much I look forward to reading every post and taking in every image from Nora! Beautiful, beautiful...

Rani Knits: Rani has to be one of the happiest bloggers out there! Her posts are peppered with family, travel, knitting, and fun!! I have never met her, nor heard her voice, but her writing is filled with such joy and smiles that I love reading her posts! I always leave her blog with a giggle and a smile on my face!

Moonstitches: I found Alex's blog a little while ago, I don't remember my path to her blog as it wasn't via a conventional link...however, after reading just the first post I was hooked. Alex has posted several series of images on different subjects that are so intriguing and thoughtful.

Smitten Kitchen: I'm new to this blog, too. It's easy on the eyes, the writing is fun, and what can I's about food! Deb recently did a tutorial on baking a wedding cake! Heart it!

A Walk Through Durham Township: I can't remember how I first found this blog either. It's a photoblog and is definitely worth your time to peruse Kathleen's archives. Her images are lovely...and you get a chance to visit a part of the world you might not ever visit in person! Happy travels!

Thank you all for all your kind words and return visits to the blog!
They mean so much to me!

We have done some knitting over the weekend...but, you'll have to wait just a wee bit longer to see what has been finished (!) and what's on the needles now!! In the meantime, I'd like to encourage you to check out the above bloggers ... what's a Sunday afternoon for if not a little bit of bloghopping with a fresh cup of coffee* in your hand!

*I bet you thought I was going to show you a steaming cup of coffee, huh?'s been long finished!! I'm working on the last of the blueberries from the garden now!! :)

YUM! Nothing like good blueberries! I checked out a couple of the blogs you awarded-I only recently discovered Black Dog-and I agree with you on that one! And I just checked out Smitten Kitchen-THANKS for that one! LOVE IT!!!

You know, Gail, it took me forever to realize you were the same person on "We Heart Yarn" until Carrie mentioned it to me maybe after camp? I had first read this blog 2+ years ago in the beginning of the RSC! I'm coming back more often so I can keep up with you!
