Hmmmm... it's so hard to narrow it down to only 5 from all the places I love..... I love to visit everybody! But I'll play fair... (humphh- that's a first.) I award the "Arte y Pico" in return to:
Kathleen from Eggs in my Pocket- I love all of Kathleen's garden and animal stories... and please check out her Yesteryear Embroideries blog... you will be amazed at her gorgeous work!
Mare from Moon and Stars Studio- Mare always posts wonderful pictures of a wide variety of things, from her artwork and handmade jewelry to her grandkids and flower garden! Stop by her place and just admire her beautiful watercolors!
Doreen at Vermont Harvest Primitives- Miss Doreen's blog is so much fun to visit, because she makes the most wonderful little primitive dolls and they have such personality, too. I personally gush at her creations... I think you will, too!
Renna at Finding my Knitch- Renna does some fabulous knitting..(Ugh, I am so jealous.) But she also blogs about her family, cooking, and being a slave to her cat. Never a dull moment at Renna's place!
Dani at Eagles Wings- Dani always writes such beautiful things, and she also posts really neat pictures of people and places from a long time ago to the present day. You never know what you'll see next!
Thank you again, Tammy.. this was fun!
Some of you have asked about how I arrived at the name "Pout House" for my little potting shed/lawnmower shed/ junk depository.... and I don't really know, except when Hubby first moved the chicken coop (which is what it was in it's previous life) right beside the house, we joked and said it looked like a fancy outhouse on cinderblocks. Once it was finished, it didn't really look like a normal potting shed with the lean-to's on each side, but I didn't want to keep calling it the "outhouse", so I just combined outhouse and potting shed. At least I think that's how it happened....
Speaking of, I have recently found out that someone has BEEN IN MY POUTHOUSE. Can you believe it, the nerve? I started seeing a little activity inside, so I decided to investigate....
Hmmmm... everything looks normal...
Sounds like there is something coming from the Wally World bag in the corner....
Great.... now I have to SHARE my pouthouse with a whole family of Wrens!!!
Jeez... I'll never get to pout in peace...
