blog love ♥

Not too long ago, I shared about indulging myself in a little shopping spree of sorts – oh, to ease the “passage of time“, you could say.  And in that post, it was so fun to share some awesome finds from some great artisans, crafters and shop owners.  I love having these unique and one of a kind pieces in my life and how they represent the incredible and diverse handmade world.

But one of the best items to come my way that week was something you can’t put in a box or  put a bow on. Blog love.  Yep, you read that right. Some blog love, baby.

For this blogger still in her infancy; it was such a great gift.  It was like giving candy to a baby! Through this wonderful webby world,  I have been lucky to connect with Pam over at the Mercantile Muse [blog] and Bates Mercantile, Co.  [Esty Shop].  And it was on that day that Pam left me a sweet little BTW that she had nominated me for the Liebster Blog Love Award. I have a confession…so new…I had to look it up! But imagine my excitement when I read that…

“The origins of the Liebster Blog Award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it means favourite or dearest to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.”

Sometimes less really is more!  Woo-hoo!  Thanks so much, Pam!  I am honored to be mentioned by you and be in the great company of the other blogs you cast the spotlight on in your post where you so perfectly quoted Sally Field.

This award comes with a few rules the recipient must follow in order to accept the award.

  1. Thank the person(s) who gave you the award  {check and double check…Thanks Pam!}
  2. Link back to that person’s blog   {check!}
  3. Copy and Paste the Award to your blog   {check! & check it out, right over there…to your right..yeah, right there! Cool huh? }
  4. Present the award to 3-5 blogs of 200 followers or less that you feel deserve this recognition
  5. Let those blogs know by leaving them a comment {check! }

So, without further adieu { I just love saying that…}

I am totally digging the fact that I get to share the blog ♥ now. But, I have to be honest. I am not totally sure how to tell exactly  how many followers a blog has…I am pretty sleuthy, { yes, that’s a word…now! }  so it’s driving  me a bit batty to not know, so if your blog is below and you  have like gazillions of followers, just know I really dig your blog and think that anyone who doesn’t, should!   Here are my picks in no particular order…

I appreciate each of these blogs for their fresh perspectives; for their fun and real personalities that shine through each post; and the amazing finds they showcase – it’s always a treat to see what’s they have in store. Each of these great blogs have taught me something about this bloggy blog world and I look forward to seeing what’s new with each post. And, they are each just darn nice peeps!  You’ll see!

Thanks lovely bloggers!  ♥

{ go share the ♥ and check out each and every one of these blogs! }
