A Red Heart and a Liebster Blog Award

I recently had a lovely surprise, I was given an award for my blog,
I'd like to thank the wonderful Jo at  Pickle-Lily for choosing me for this lovely award........

You can find her post about it  HERE

 Please see edit at the end of this post

The origins of the Liebster Blog Award are a bit unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, which makes sense as Liebster is a German word meaning 'dearest' or' favourite'. It is a fun way of putting the spotlight on up and coming blogs. The 'rules' (or guidelines) are simple and don't include finding weird and wonderful facts about yourself....

1- Choose FIVE up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award the Liebster Award to. 
2- Put their links on your blog and let them know that you have done this.
3- Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them. 
4- Post the award on your blog.
Here are my choices for the Liebster Blog Award. I found this a hard task to do.  
I have a lot of favourites to choose from and the 5 I have chosen are:-

 Anita is very creative has some beautiful jewellery on her blog, she sounds fun too. 

2. Fiona at Sugar for my Honey

 I love the beautiful photographs taken around her North Wales home.

3. Claire at Ragbags and Gladrags

 A very versatile lady,  Claire can make something wonderful out of nothing,  and I love her Butterfly Paintings too. 

4. Sam at Hettiecraft
A blog I enjoy, I especially like her 'distressed' images.

 If you like toys, dogs or cats you will love this blog 

So that's my choice, I really hope you can all pop along and show your support  and say 'helloooo to them all.

Just to finish off this post and as the Leibster Award has a Heart LogoI thought I'd show you one of my Hearts. 

This is a blank that can be decorated or personalised in any way or any colour you want, there are more of these in my Folksy shop *HERE* or through my Facebook *HERE*

Edited to include......
I have recently been awarded the Liebster Award from two other bloggers so I would like to add their links here and thank them very much for passing on the award to me.
They are.......

I wish you all a good and happy week
