I'm pleased as punch to say that the lovely Becky at www.monpetitlapin.blogspot.com has given this blog the Arte y pico award - http://arteypico.blogspot.com/
This is an award for interestingness, creativity, design and contributing to the blogging community. What a lovely idea! :)
The rules for this (which I have pasted from Becky's blog - hope you don't mind Becky but you phrased it better than I could!) are:
Award “Rules”: The rules of Arte Y Pico are - you must pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting content, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language! Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to their blog. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself. The award winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of the Arte Y Pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
I would like to give this award to...
Gretel of All Around Us - I featured Gretel's wonderful needlefelt creations a few posts ago. Gretel lives in beautiful rural Oxfordshire and knows far more about nature than I ever could - check out the little film of the view from her bike ride.
Erica of Erica's Attic - Erica makes beautiful pictures and dolls - scroll down a bit on her blog to enter to win a charming Ottoline doll!
Kajsa of Sykossa - I love the little glimpses into her life and her quirky Scandinavian style.
Debbie of The Imagination of Ladysnail - Debbie is an illustrator who does lovely screenprints as well as adorable cuddly robot plushies.
Paula of Paula Bowles - Paula is a professional illustrator who shares pictures of her work and life in Bristol.
