Liebster Award....not once but twice!!!

Well whose the lucky one? Nope I didn't win the lotto but I've been lucky enough to have been nominated today for the Liebster Blog Award...not once but twice this week by seperate bloggers! 

So what does this award mean....The Liebster Blog Award originated in Germany. Liebster means dearest or beloved, and Liebe is love. So I feel very thrilled that people feel I deserve this award. I love blogging but it wouldn't mean anything without followers and people taking time out of their busy lives to stop awhile and read what I'm nattering about. So thank you all for being there....

I'm going to incorporate the two kind people who have decided to pass this award on to me in the same post....instead of doing it seperately. I hope they won't mind?
Firstly there's Cynthia at Cottage Remnant who has a lovely blog with lots of beautiful artwork (oh and she loves she REALLY loves pink) and in fact she's a whiz on blog designs. She kindly helped produce my new button on my sidebar and she'd love to have you visit.
 And then there's VonnyK who will have you laughing at her tales, but also blown away at her artistic talent. 
If you have a pet...she does amazing pet portraits...but then she does so much more too...just take a look.

This award was designed to be a blog award in the pay it forward fashion. Once you've been nominated, you award it to five blogs that you like that have fewer than 200 followers, to encourage new visitors to visit these blogs. 
Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog. Post the award onto your blog. Give the award to five bloggers who you appreciate that have fewer than 200 followers. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award!
There are so many bloggers who have inspired and helped me to date and to find just five was very hard.     Here are my five choices of blogs ( in no particular order, as I love them all...
1.Darla from sea to mountains
2.Stefanie Stark
3.Gloria Zucaro
4.Stamp Laugh Play
5.Arnoldo Romero

It’s been incredibly difficult to chose only 5 blogs, because I would like to include so many more, but they are already so successful having over 200 followers (...I can only dream....) Anyway take a peek at the blogs listed above and see what you find....I hope you'll be pleasantly surprised and possibly meet a new friend :D
