Blogging Awards

Wow! I'm truly honored to have been given not one..but 2 very nice blogging awards this week..Wow!..(blushing a little bit here now)

I want to thank Jeanie of "The Marmalade Gypsy"( )
for bestowing upon me the "E for Excellence" Blog Award

....and a thank you to Linda of "Remote Treechanger"(
for the beautiful "Arte y Pico" award.

Now...for receiving the "E for Excellence" award..I am to in turn bestow this award upon 10 bloggers that inspire, or that have a sense of "community"... blogs that are downright cool and inspiring,and just plain fun.
1. Gayla at:
2. Tara at:
3.Becca at:
4.Anne Marie at:
5. Jenny at:
6. Bev at:
7. Laura at:
8. Karin at:
9. Naomi at
10.Wanda at:

(Of course if it is easier on any of you that have been awarded to reduce that number of 10 down to say..about 5..then by all so..this isn't meant to cause added "uh-oh factor" to anyone's day)

Then for the "Arte y Pico" award..I am to do the following:
Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material and also contribute to the blogging community.

Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog.
1. Dawn at :
2. Kim at:
3. Amy at:
4. Ele at:
5. Lilla at:
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.
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 the origin of this award.
Show these rules.
*** Oh my gracious..did any of you know how hard this was to do??!! I would have loved to have awarded everyone that is in my blog list..but..yeah..I had to "play by the rules"
Thanks for stopping by..and I hope that you wear your new "badges" with pride!****
Hugs...from me to you...~ The Garden Goose~

Dear Tina,
thanks so much, will work on how to do this. Find it confusing linking things, still new at it.
I love it when you drop by.
I am a bit distracted actually, Mum in NZ in Hosp. She in 94 plus.
Keeps me alerted to the poss. that I may have to make a hurried trip.
You are very creative and have so much of interest to share always.
Love all the fun and adventure.
One odd thingy, my sister-in-law in NZ who I do not refer to, said someone sent her your blog in an email. She wonders how that came about. World is a small one. She enjoyed it.
