Award Time



I've won an award!
Its called the Arte y Pico Award. It was given to me from Tasha @ Comical Coupon Cents.
She said:
"Country Girl at Achorn Farm (I don't know her name). I recently came across her blog and love it! She has a 200 year old farm house and 100 acres of land that they raise all kinds of critters on! She and her husband work so hard and its amazing. Makes me realize if the world goes to pot, I wouldn't know how to clean a chicken or be able to "live off the land". Her blog is inspiring and entertaining."

Thank you Tasha!


These are the rules to accept the award:

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 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


Ok so here goes. I love all the blogs I read but here are the 5 that I will present with this award.

1. Danielle at Touch The Earth Farm
Danielle homeschools, has a small CSA, and produces most of the food her family eats. Her shopping list for the week is so small it just amazes me. I am inspired by all she does!

2. Tammie at The Unusually Unusual Farmchick
Tammie's style is "Unusually Unusual", she is unique, she is crafty as ever and I get some great ideas from the posts she shares.

3. Lacy at Razor Family Farm
Lacy and her husband are a wonderful couple that are in the midst of the adoption process. They live on a farm and are always busy doing projects and caring for their animals. Lacy make lots of food/products from scratch. She writes warm and loving posts about her hubby and about life.

4. Amy at Twelve Acres
Amy writes pleasant posts about nature and her surroundings at Twelve Acres. She plants lots of trees, has a bunch of chickens which are due to start laying soon and she also has a orphaned squirrel, Rocky that they raised and released but so far he comes back to visit on a regular basis. She is really knows her stuff when it comes to flower identification.

5. Nita at Throwback at Trapper Creek
I have just started reading Nita's blog as a result of a comment left on my blog. She writes in detail about many things I am interested in, gardening, raising animals, hay fed cattle. I look forward to learning from her!

Lastly, I just want to say you all deserve lots of awards but the rule was just 5. I will not be offended if any of the above do not want to pass this award along, it is a little time consuming but I thought it would be fun so here it is. Have a good week all! ~Kim

Congratulations Kim! Thank you for picking me as one of your favorite 5. I'm trying to decide if I have time to do all that is required of me to accept the award.
It is sooo busy here - thanks again, looking forward to more of your farm adventures.

Thank you Kim and congratulations to you too! I'm very flattered! I love your blog as well and it's on my list of regular reads. Rocky tries to keep up too but he needs help with some of the big words!

Congratulations and Thank you! I must admit, I am bad about passing on awards and doing meme's...I always keep putting it off for the next post and before you know it weeks have gone by.
I do thank you for sharing the award with me. An honor to accept coming from you.

WOW!! That is so cool! I am so pleased and excited! Thank you, Kim! Congratulations on your award, too. You deserve it! I adore your blog!

Either tonight or tomorrow night, I shall make my selection for blogs and make my post. How in the world do I pick just five? I love WAY more than five!

Have a terrific day and know that you absolutely made mine!

Blessings!

Hey wow, thank you, you crazy electrify'in woman, you. Razor Family Farm dropped by my blog to tell me. That's what I get for not having time to read blogs these days—oblivion. ;)

Congrats to you as well. See, where I work, I only get to zap myself and maybe an animal here and there with the electric fence. Not nearly the same rush, I'm sure. *laughing*
