Tressa, a Nomadic American living in Norway, awarded me the wonderful Arte Y Pico award. This award originated in Uruguay, from a blogger who will test your Spanish skills if you pay her a visit. Of course, there are rules that accompany this award. They are:
- Choose five blogs deserving of this award...
- Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog
- Each award winner has to show the award and put the name of and the link to the blog that presented him/her with the award
- The award winner and the one who has given the prize has to show the link of Arte Y Pico blog so everyone will know where it originated.
Mary, a chickadee living in coastal Massachusetts, tagged me with a 6 question meme, just after I received my award. Here's my response...

(Just like with the Arte Y Pico award, this meme ALSO has rules. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people to do the same. However, I'm not going to tag anyone in the official form of the game... read below to see how I'm changing my meme!)
I posted these together so I could combine my lists and recommend five blogs that I enjoy reading. I really had difficulty narrowing them down because I read so many different blogs; sewing blogs, expat blogs, design blogs, mom blogs. I am always adding new blogs to my site, check over there to see a more complete list of my daily reads. If I missed you, let me know.
