Liebster Love


A gorgeous buddy, Michelle of Shelbyville recently nominated me for a Liebster award. They were new to me but Michelle says that Liebster means ‘dearest’ and the ‘award’ was created as a way to show a little love to fellow bloggers for their contribution to the blogosphere. Sounds great! It also turns out that the Liebster rules have been pretty rubbery over the years (how 3-5 questions becomes 11 is a mystery). I’ve been a bit rubbish with honouring awards in the past, I have every good intention but where does time go. However I have an idea. It’ll keep my blog nose clean and its just a tiny little tweak – a ‘Mini Liebster’ option if you will!

How it works:
One:          Answer the 5-11 questions given to you by your nominator.
Two:          Post 5-11 things about yourself.
Three:       Nominate 5-11 bloggers & set 5-11 new questions for them to answer.
Four:         Stop by their blog & let them know they’ve been nominated.
Five:          No tag backs!


Step Three:  I nominate these six lovely ladies. They are all incredibly creative, generous and inspirational.
These guys get things done, amazing things. And I’m itching to know a little bit more about them and how they tick.
Please visit them but be warned they have very addictive blogs.

Lamina of Do A Bit
Kylie of Paravent
Susie of Flowerpress
Ellie of Petalplum
Tali of Milk and Cookies
Francesca of Mrs Eliot Books

… and their questions are:

  1. If you could live in any other country for a year where would you choose and why?
  2. Which are your top three favourite books?
  3. Tell us about a famous woman you admire.
  4. Tell us about a major moment you were brave and it paid off.
  5. Which period of history most interests you and why?
  6. Share an image from the last 12 months that took your breath away.


Phew! All done. Thanks Michelle I hope you feel as if I’ve done the Liebsters justice.
I’d so love to ask you those questions … but I know, I know … Step Five!
The rules are delightfully rubbery though don’t you think. xx

Just a quick note to say thanks to Francesca for the wonderful inspiration that I found on her blog.
She has a fun collaboration with photographer Xanthe Berkeley called Its a List Thing that turns
the humble list into a work of graphic art.

      The funniest thing is when I told my Mum about one particular sleepwalking episode – I happened to be naked that time.
      She promptly sent me a gift of pyjamas. 😀
