And the Liebster Goes To...

We were so flattered a couple of weeks ago to get the "Liebster" blog love award from Samara (we just found her blog, "The Dressing Room" and it's really cool - she has great taste in fashion and decorating!)

"Liebster" is German and means dearest or beloved, but it can also mean "favorite."

The rules for this award are pretty simple.  If you are selected, you:
1. Choose FIVE up and coming blogs to pass this award on to.  They must have less than 200 followers.
2. Show a big thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Post the award on your blog.  List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. 
4. Best of All- bask in the glory- have fun and share the love!
We are still very new to blogging, but have realized quickly that we love it!

We are hoping to make more friends in the blogger community and have more consistent readers.  Maybe this award can be the start of that.

The blogs that we have chosen to give this award to:

1. Mandy P. at Fabric Paper Glue: Her crafty blog is full of cool DIY ideas and great colors. We can relate to her passion for unique, personalized details both at home and for parties/events.

2. Colleen at Inspired to Share: Awesome blog full of design inspiration. Her "about me" says "I like to pretend I'm Mary Poppins"... says it all.

3. Abby at J'Adore Ma Vie: We love following her adventures living, working, and crafting in France. (PS: Abby is a very close friend of Jayne's, who she wishes lived a little closer... although she loves living vicariously through her French adventures!)

4. Mary at Tulips and Flight Suits: Her sweet lifestyle blog invites you to "grab some hot chocolate and stay awhile." And with her insightful ideas, advice and love for everything creative, we want to.

5. Carrie & Morgan at Ampersand Design Studio:  These talented ladies have a design studio in KC, and their cheery, colorful blog is full of design/typography, home and fashion inspiration... and loads of great taste. 

Thank you to these blogs for inspiring us, and thanks again to Samara for the award!

  3. Thank you so much for the sweet award, Jayne and Katie! We are honored. Love you blog!

  4. I JUST NOW SAW THIS!!! How did I miss this post?!?!? Thank you girls SO much! I wish Jayney was closer as well... perhaps a French adventure in the future??? :) I am flattered and honored. Love you both!
