An Award For Me and Passing on the Love.....

Arte Y Pico AwardThe very sweet and amazingly talented Celestina Marie of La Rea Rose bestowed this very lovely award on me this past week. I am so honored and grateful to her for thinking of me and complimenting me with the sweet things she said about me on her blog. Thank you Celestina, I am honored. I would like to pass this award onto the following creative ladies:


Cindy from My Romantic Home. This lovely lady has the most amazing blog (I have to admit, it is my favorite) and she shares so many ideas and techniques from painting furniture to growing roses. She has a keen eye for re-purposing items found at yard sales and thrift stores. Her home is filled with items she has found on Craigslist and even (admittedly) on the side of the road (see her post on the dining room chairs she found for free). Cindy is a daily inspiration to me to stay motivated to finish all my projects big and small alike.


Manuela from The Feathered Nest is a breath of fresh air everyday. She is an amazing lady who shares so many great ideas on her blog. She is probably one of the most organized and resourceful ladies in blog land. Her home is an ever-changing palette of warmth and ideas not to mention her green thumb in the yard. Take a look at what she did in her backyard with china plates and an old headboard.


Joy from The Vintage Rabbit is an amazing talent who incorporates a multitude of definition in her style. Her outgoing personality shines through in her ability to mix shabby chic, beachie cottage and vintage into a refreshing display, enticing to the eye. I had the pleasure of meeting her this month at La Maison Rustique in Temecula. She is a genuine lady, full of enthusiasm and spunk. Visit her blog for a smile everytime.


Denise from Hope Tree Studio is a pint sized gal with a (million) gallon sized talent. Her blog is refreshing and soothing, inspiring and sweet. She is an artistic talent who shares her testimony through her work. The beautiful bracelets, necklaces and charms she lovingly creates share her love of Christ and the blessed Hope only He can give us. Thank you Denise for being an inspiration in my life and a witness of God's work in a hopeless world.


Sherry from Prairie Home is a beautiful lady whom I had the honor of meeting at "The Barn" in Temecula. She has a flair for all things vintage and gently worn. I love what this lady can do with jewelry. She affectionately refers to them as Junque Jewels, but I assure you there is no junk involved in her masterpieces. And if the jewelry isn't enough, she sells amazing t-shirts that sum up her personality to a tee (pardon the pun). With her jewels around your neck and a Vintage Chick t-shirt on, you are sporting the epitome of the vintage ideal. Thank you Sherry for making us look so Chic!


Here are the rules for this award:

1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for creativity, design, materials used, and their contribution to the community no matter what the language.

2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his/her blog to be visited.

3. Each award winner has to show the award and the name and link to the blog that awarded it.

4.The award winner and the one who has given the award have to show the link to "Arte Y Pico"

5. Show these rules.

I am happy to award the lovely ladies I have mentioned and again, I thank you Celestina Marie. You are a beautiful lady inside and out.
