Arte y Pico Award

Catching up with Blogland after my visit to Avalon Spring, I'm flattered to find I have been given an award by the lovely Moncha over at Dreaming of Avalon.

It is called the Arte y Pico award, given for 'Creativity, Design, Interesting material, and Contribution to the blogging community', and it originated here. Thank you so much, I'm deeply honoured to have been chosen and feeling very flattered that Moncha thinks I fit the bill!

Firstly I must share the rules, which are:

  1. Pick 5 blogs that you feel are deserving of this award, based on their Creativity, Design, Interesting material, and Contribution to the blogging community, no matter what language
  2. For each award giver: include the name of the author and a link to their blog, so they can be visited.
  3. For each recipient: show the award with the name and link to the blogger from whom it was received.
  4. For both giver and receiver: show the link (
  5. Publish these rules.
And now I get to pass the award on!

I choose:

Dancing Mermaid: mccabe's blog is a delight - I am in awe of her words, her art and her photos all of which always lift me up and make me feel better about the world.

At Brigid's Forge: Because I love Lunaea's words and photos - and I love to see the pretty Goddess rosaries she produces.

The Gold Puppy: Reya is a friend from real life as well as the blogosphere - unfortunately the Atlantic separates us! She always has such an unusual slant on life (I call it Reyavision) which makes me think, and her photos are just fabulous!

Jackie Morris's Blog: Jackie is an amazing and talented artist and writer. I love her 'Three Ginger Cats' blog, but she also has this blog which showcases her gorgeous artwork and photos. If I could afford them I would have her paintings hung all round my house - until that day comes I content myself with sighing over her blog.

It's The Journey, Not the Destination: Donald is another dear friend across the pond. He too is a talented artist, photographer and writer. He's only been blogging a short while but I'm so glad he decided to join us so I can enjoy his work!

If you haven't visited any of these wonderful blogs before I recommend them all heartily. Have fun browsing!

Your award is quite well deserved- and so are those you distributed. I've just made a few more bookmarks! A little more beauty in every day is such a blessing to me.

I love Donald's blog, too, but more than that I'm so flattered and honored that you chose my blog as one of your five. Wow!!

Reyavision? LOVE IT!!

Hoping to get across the pond for Thanksgiving this year. Thanksgiving with you and T and the chickens in Wales sound so perfect.

Much love and appreciation. Thank you!
