Oh...Look what has come my way via Shirl from Shirl's Rose Cottage...I had the honor and privilege of receiving the Arte Y Pico award from Shirl. What a surprise this is, thank you SO much, sweet Shirl! I so appreciate all the wonderful people that I have met here on the blogs, & in the spirit of kindness, love, & the greatest respect for you, dear Shirl, & all the other true artists in blogland, I humbly accept this.

Here are the rules:

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 of 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.

Now for the fun yet very hard part... to choose 5 other people for this award...

The five blogs which I chose nourish me and enrich me with creativity. In them I see dedication, creativity, care, comradeship, but mainly, ART, much art. I choose..............

1. Laurie of Charming Designs

2. Bertie of Aunt May's Cottage

3. Brittany of Adeline's Shabby Cottage

4. Rhea of Sweet N Shabby Roses

5. Betty of She's Sew Pretty

Now, on to the PINKNESS!!

One of my new bestest girlfriends, Beverly of How Sweet The Sound, is hosting PINK SATURDAY each week. All that means is that she posts something, ANYTHING, pink every Saturday for all the other pink lovers out there. She has asked any of us who would like to join her to go to her blog to link up with her on Saturdays. If you are interested in doing "Pink Posts" on Saturdays, just let Beverly know by Friday before, and we can all play together. She will post the links on her Saturday post here.

My first pinkness is for my dear friend Katie of Rose Breeze Boutique, who is recovering from surgery. I just love this pink chenille chair & it would look so awesome with her pink sofa!!

Next, one of my favorite vintage covered casseroles ~ with pink roses & swags

My Capidimonte Roses

And my newest, most favorite find ~ my Aynsley open sugar & creamer ~ pale green with GORGEOUS pink roses

Till next time.....


**Due to the need for me to time-start this post, I will announce my giveaway winner Saturday evening!**

Shirl said...

Hi Steph, I love your chenille chair, it must be so cozy to sit on. I love soft fabrics, I even keep a cut of fleece on my couch where I set everyday. I buy pretty ones of course! That casserole is just beautiful, and so the sugar and creamer. Congrats on the award you sure do deserve it. Steph your pics are just beautiful they are so nice and bright and clear. I'm going to ask my friend to help me get better pics, they will be on vacation with us this year. I will pick his brain since he is a profesional photographer.
Love you! Shirl
