Liebster Blog Award: Thank You


Quite some time ago, in August, Barb and Dell Designs gave me a Liebster Blog Award. Now, this award idea is all very new to this two-month-plus-blogger. I sent a note of thanks, but didn't think to carry on the tradition. 

I did a bit of reading and it's my understanding that some people enjoy awards and some shrink back from them. That being said, I'm passing them on in the spirit of appreciation for the pleasure these blogs have given me. Whether these folks display the Liebster or choose to participate is completely up to them! Either way, their sites are well worth a visit.

Here are the guidelines, as I understand them -and hoping the details aren't too fuzzy.

A Liebster Blog (Liebster is sweetheart in German) is meant to connect bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.

1. Link back to the blogger that gave you the award.
2. Choose 5 blogs that you would like to recommend to others. Leave a comment for each of them so that they know they've been mentioned on your blog.
3. Post the Liebster graphic on your blog.
4. Enjoy the visits that come your way.
5. To quote Barb and Dell, "Have fun and spread the karma!"

So, rather sheepish about being late, my choices (in alphabetical order) are:

1.  Fabric, Paper, Thread 
This woman likes to create, and takes beautiful photographs of nature on the west coast of Canada.

These are some gorgeous photos of Japan and an artistic look at life in that country.

3.  Handmade by Knottygal 
 If you like to knit, there are some patterns here, courtesy of this talented young woman from India.

4.  My Garden Journal
This new blogger is an English transplant living in the US and has lovely photos. This is but one of her three blogs, so be sure to travel on from her gardening one.

Since I'm sneaking several blogs into number 4, I'll leave my list at that! 

I look at my choices and think there is an aspirational component to my selecting them; I want to be more creative, a better photographer, and a competent gardener. Maybe some of the talent will rub off on me!

Take a "walk" over to these women's blogs and please leave them a comment. Encouragement is a wonderful thing!   :)
Warm wishes,


  1. Thank you karen, it is nice to have visitors and as a new blogger I am so glad I met you. You are so kind.

  2. Karen, Thanks for passing on the Liebster Blog. I will have to go over and visit your picks.

  3. Thank you for choosing me for the award. Its a nice feeling to be 'noticed' and appreciated. :-)


  4. Congratulations on your well deserved award, Karen! When I began blogging five years ago I was so thrilled to receive recognition this way. After a few blog years and a blog sidebar full of awards I felt it was time to no longer accept them and hope they would be passed on to new bloggers instead. It is nice to find new blogs and I will visit your recommendations!

  5. Hello Karen - thanks for visiting my blog. It's nice to meet a fellow Canadian. I love the size of your photos and the fact that they are framed. I've only been blogging for less than a year and a half. I agree with you that Lorrie is a very creative blogger. I'll look forward to checking out the other blogs you've recommended. Thanks!
