Oh, boy, I won an award!

Look what Miranda over at Hackberry Road gave me! Isn't she pretty? (Miranda and the angel, LOL!) Go visit her and see who else she nominated, and read the nice things she wrote about my blog! http://lifeonhackberryroad.blogspot.com/
It's called an "Arte y Pico" award. I need to go look up what that means...okay, it originated at a blog called "Arte y Pico" (of course!) and here's the link: http://arteypico.blogspot.com/ I wish I was better at Spanish! I'm translating this as "Art and Beak," which makes no sense...but might if I could read the blog, LOL!

Anyhoo, in accepting there are rules to follow, so here I go:

1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and 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 to be visited by everyone.

3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that presented her/him with the award.

4.The award winner and one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5. To show these rules.

Oh, my goodness, how do I pick five out of all the wonderful blogs I've come across??????

My first nominee is Susan over at Blackberry Creek. http://blackberrycreek.typepad.com/blackberry_creek/ I love her photographs, her amazing quilts, her creativity and, of course, her dog "Sophie Belle Patterpaw." Susan is all about Southern Charm...and her husband's a cutie, too!

I found Becky's Blog http://sew-and-so.blogspot.com/ on my ABCs of creative blogs adventure, and I really enjoy following her creative projects. Check out how she refashioned an old shirt into what she calls a "Doolittle Blouse." So clever!

My next nominee is Shereen at "Waiting for Him." http://w8ng4him.blogspot.com/ If you are one of my frequent flyers, you know that I try to participate in Shereen's "Sew Crafty Friday" each week! What a wonderful showcase for the amazing creative talent out there! Thanks, Shereen, for starting this 'carnival.' I know it can't be easy to keep up with it, when you've got your beautiful family keeping you busy! It inspires me to keep working on my 17,000 wips!

Okay, every time I visit Lettie at "Polka Dot Pineapple" I smile. Go on over there and try to keep a frown on your face. Just try! http://mousechirpy-polkadotpineapple.blogspot.com/ Ha, ha, I knew you couldn't do it? Aren't those yo-yo projects the cutest things ever?

Finally, I have to nominate Tammy of "Tammy's Recipes." http://www.tammysrecipes.com/ Mostly because I use her Amish Bread and Pizza Crust recipes all the time! She also has a carnival..."Kitchen Tip Tuesday." Keep those recipes coming, Tammy...it's all so goooood!
