Arte y Pico Award

First of all, I'd like to thank my mother, my siblings, Joe Fish, Granny Sue...Oh, wait. I guess I don't need to do an acceptance speech. My friend Granny Sue (of Granny Sue's News and Reviews) just gave me the Arte y Pico award. Thanks, Granny Sue!

This award was created by an Uruguayan doll maker who wanted to honor artistic blogs.

The rules of the award are that the winner pass the honor on to five more blogs I deem to be artistic. "Artistic" is a broad term; some are more so than others. I'm not going to admit to the number of blogs in my Google Reader, as you would then all understand why I'm not more productive. We'll just say I had no shortage of choices. Here are five blogs I read consistently:

With Vanilla and Honey
I love seeing Erin's amazing photographs of food--much of which she has prepared herself. I try not to drool on my keyboard when reading her blog.

Le Pen Now and Then This used to be Le Pen Quotidien, and though the change means that I have to wait longer between Bambi's drawings, the pleasure in seeing them is just as great. I think my favorite series might have been the 12 days of Christmas. Brilliant!

Here are the rules for the prize:
1. Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award through creativity, design, interesting material and that contribute to the blogger community.

2. Each award should have the name of the author with a link to their blog.

3. Award winners have to post the award with the name and link to the blog of the person who gave them the award.

4.Please include a link to the Arte y pico blog so that everyone will know where the award came from.

5. Show these rules.
