Award ceremony...clap, clap, clap!!!

Oh my!!! We received an award!! Darlene Pringle from "A Dancing Mango" has honored the Etsy Cottage Style blog with the Kreativ Blogger Award...Yeah!!!

Now we have to list 7 things that we like...
(even though I write this blog, it's only possible thanks to the creativity of all our members, so I'll try to speak for everyone on this one...)

.We love everything and anything cottage style from fresh kitchens to enchanted gardens.
.We love recycling and giving new life to old furniture, china, linens...
.We treasure a couple of hours a day to create
.We like to try new things...recipes, techniques, mediums, ...the sky's the limit!
.We enjoy "meeting" new people online, proving that you can always find something in common with someone else.
.We are big on Family!
.We adore pink!!!!!...

The second part of this post is a little harder, because I'm supposed to pass this award to 7 blogs I consider creative. Not an easy task, we are surrounded by creativity in Blog Land! I'll do my best...here they are:

http://www.kariandkijsa.blogspot.com ...Two sisters with impeccable taste!
http://thechateauofremnants.blogspot.com ...Lots of beautiful pictures and inspiration here!
http://goinggreenboutique.blogspot.com she is a very active Etsy member, visit her blog for lots of creative tips!!!
http://couturedepapier.blogspot.com ...Inspiring and beautiful artwork!
http://catnipstudio.blogspot.com...Kathy makes fantastic jewelry and her blog is delightfully designed
http://www.forheartandhome.blogspot.com...If you like pink, sweet and roses, this is the blog for you!
http://foofooelm.blogspot.com...Debi is a brand new member of our group and her jewelry is worth a trip to her blog.

I hope you Ladies will grab a cup of coffee, relax and visit each one of these creative women and their fantastic blogs. Introduce yourself, leave a comment, let them know how you've been inspired by their work, I know they will love that! Thank you Darlene once again!!
