The lovely (and EXTREMELY articulate) Annette from 
has nominated me for a Liebster Award...

The Liebster blog award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers. 
Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, loveliest, cutest . 

Wowsers Trousers and a Walla Walla Bing Bang!!
These were the initial words that came to mind and then once I had calmed my 
rather jolly happy heart I thought....

Let me just clarify that this is by no means a false modesty.
This lady expresses herself in a fashion I can only dream of emulating.
It is truly cool to have her acknowledgement & encouragement.
Annette... Thank YOU.

Now the rules of the Liebster Award are as such:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you (check)
2. Reveal your five personal nominations and 

let them know by leaving a comment on their blog(check)
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog (check)
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!
(check check)

So here are the blogs that I HIGHLY 
recommend you visit - if you haven't already.

The lovely Demie at Paraphernalia
(Her kindness and spirit shines through every post)

The spirited Nadya at Wolves at the Door
(An artist I admire profusely)

The brave Fay at Dreaming of an Aga
(Her move to the country has inspired me so)

The talented Anna at Mr Sparrow
(Her shop is every bit as special as she is)

The fabulous Eleni at Eleni Drinks Tea
(She always makes me smile... and giggle)

And can I sneak in a cheeky sixth?
Of course I can....we're spreading blog love here peoples, Yes?

The poetic Lisa from In My Wild Eden
(Her words are always uplifting) 

I think these blog awards are such a lovely way of showing our support to fellow bloggers as well as a great way of finding out who our favourite bloggers admire.

Again thank you so much Annette.
I hope you all enjoy visiting my recommended friends.

Have a lovely Monday peoples - I will be blogging about my weekend soon.
I decided to use my usual Sunday blogging session to absorb (and enjoy) this wonderful compliment
and to respond in kind
