Liebster Award


Recently I received some exciting news.  Cecilia from My Thrift Store Addiction nominated me for the Liebster Award.  Thank you so very much Cecilia! 

Although I have heard of this award, I must admit I didn't know a lot about it, so I did some research.  Here is a summary of what I found:

  • The Liebster Award is given to bloggers by other bloggers.
  • It is intended for bloggers with less than 200 followers ( basically as a way to introduce that blog to others and make new blogging friends).  I say, what a nice concept!
  • The word Liebster is a German word meaning 'dearest'.  A few synonyms for dearest in the English language are appealing, nice, engaging.    


The rules are:

1.  Acknowledge and thank the blogger who nominated you.

2.  Find an award image and post it on your blog. 

3.  Answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.

4.  Share 11 random facts about yourself. 

5.  Nominate 11 blogs with under 200 followers to receive the award.

6.  Notify the bloggers that you nominated them.

7.  Give the nominees 11 questions to answer. 



Cecilia's questions for me:


1.  What has been your greatest blogging challenge?
My greatest blogging challenge so far has been posting real personal stuff about myself or my kids, so answering these questions is a bit challenging.

 2.  What's your favorite guilty pleasure?
I love chai tea latte!

 3.  Which blog post are you most proud of and why? 
Harvest Tablescape With Meaningful Items is a favorite of mine and of my readers.  I like it because the table was set with a harvest of things given to me.  I love pieces that have a story.

 4.  Who has inspired you most in your life? 
My mom!  She has always (and still is) there for me.  I have always said that I hope to be half the mom to my girls that she has been to me.

 5.  What's your favorite movie?
Sweet Home Alabama.  I love this movie because it is about a small town girl trying life in the big city, only to return to her roots.  

 6.  Would you rather spend the day at a spa or junking at a flea market?
A day at the flea market for sure!  It is something that my husband and I both enjoy.  Love the whole up-cycling and re-purposing thrill.

 7.  What's your favorite flower?
Yellow rose.

 8.  Assuming it was nice weather, would you rather go for a hike or stay indoors  
      with a good book?
A hike...being outdoors brings a sense of peace to me.

 9.  What is your biggest priority for 2015?
My biggest blogging priority for 2015 is...I would like to earn money from my blog.

10.  What 5 things would top your gratitude list?
My faith, my family, my health, my animals, changing seasons.    

11.  Are you more likely to spend on a vacation or home improvements? 
Home improvements...there seems to always be one (or more) going on ;-)


11 Random facts about me:
  1. I love to read ( and re-read) the Little House on the Prairie books (I have them all).
  2. I love to ride ATV's.
  3. I maintain the website for our church.
  4. I love white chocolate more than milk chocolate.
  5. My legs are full of metal (rods, screws, pins, plates).  I was hit head on by a tow truck when I was 18 years old.
  6. My mom is one of 10 children, 8 girls and 2 boys.  I have lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
  7. I met my husband by way of a blind date.
  8. I cannot sing.
  9. I don't like to drive.
  10. I love snow.
  11. My eyes change colors - blue, grey, green.
