Liebster Award

Last week I received the Liebster Award from Kaitlin at Not So Simple Housewife. Thank you Kaitlin!
She does it all, cook, clean, decorate, teach, among other things.  She also hosts a Linky Party called {Re}create Into Something New.  Please stop over and visit her great blog.

This award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers, in the hopes that it will bring many new friends/followers.
Leibster is German and means 'dearest' or 'beloved' but it can also mean 'favorite'.  The idea of the Leibster award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers.  So, in the spirit of good fun I am passing this award on to five other bloggers.  Please stop by and visit them.

The Rules are:

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2. Reveal your five picks for the award and let them know.

3. Post the award on your blog.

4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogshare-other bloggers.

5. Finally and the best rule of all..........have fun and spread the love!

My 5 picks, in no particular order, are:

1.  Audrey at Timeless Treasures 
She does amazing things with junk timeless treasures.  Stop by her blog and see how she repurposed an old outdoor light fixture into a Cloche Terrarium.

2.  Carole at  Carole's Creative Corner
Carole lives in Australia and has wonderful photos and stories about her country.

3.  Poppy at Poppyjuice 
She gives you all kinds of tips on how to stretch your budget, from making popcorn in paper lunch bags to making your own dish scrubby.

4.  Lorna at Inspiration Overload
Lorna and her family recently moved from Arkansas to Ohio and is working at turning their new house into a home.

5.  Barb at The Nature Jotter
Barb is from Italy and a student of Biology.  She loves taking photos and traveling.

So please stop by these blogs, say hi, and follow them.  We all like to have new followers and get acquainted.

Have a great day.  Until next time,
