A First For Me

I am honored to have received my fist award from the blogging community and it is even more special because it comes from someone that I truly admire, Melissa Seley of Charm School Jewels, who by the way has a blog that you MUST check out, Charmed Life. Okay, back to the award. It is the Arte Y Pico Award, which is "dedicated to many who nourish and enrich the spirit and creativity". You can find out more about it by going to and scrolling down and you can see the explanation and instructions in English, otherwise the blog is in Spanish. I am really quite thrilled, also because I get to nominate 5 other people that inspire me, so here I go....

1. Elizabeth Maxson, Elizabeth House Designs - Elizabeth is a whirlwind of inspiration and when you meet her in person, she exudes so much positive energy and creativity. I love pouring over her blog and reading each word she writes, it is a true joy, as is she.

2. Holly Abston, Holly Doodle Designs - Okay, if you have never visited this blog, you will FLIP when you see Holly's creations! I am lucky to own one of Holly's crown creations which I keep on a shelf above the desk where I work in my office. ALL of Holly's designs are unique and I see them as heirloom pieces that I will one day hand down to my daughters.

3. Jo-Anne Colletti , Vintage Rose Collection - Jo-Anne inspires me on sooo many different levels!!! I love her artwork, her home decorating, and her writings, but mostly I love her honesty and integrity. I love that she is REAL and that I can talk to her girlfriend to girlfriend! On Jo's blog she has so many inspiring stories, poems etc., it is a must visit, you will be addicted!

4. Holly Snelling, Pink Grapefriut Style - Where do I begin??? I LOVE Holly S.' blog with it's vibrant colors, gorgeous photography, and fabulous STYLE!!! Holly is always baking something tasty or cooking a healthy and delicious meal that she shares her recipes for as well as providing lots of upbeat inspiration with her blog posts. Whenever we have gloomy days, Holly's blog is the first place I go for a bit of sunshine!

5.Shawn Ostrowski, Eclectic Whimsy, Auntie Pea - Shawn is the incredible artist that helped me create my blog and my pretty banner that I love so much. She was very patient with me ans listened to my every need and whim. Shawn has a wonderful blog, Auntie Pea, that is a must read where she offers lots of inspiration and great music picks. Her talents are endless.

Again, I say thank you Melissa, and to all of you who take the time to stop by and say hello or not say hello and just read and explore!
Enjoy your day!
