An award!

A short while back we discovered a blog called a Jar of Salt, with great photography, interesting posts and a thing about bread going on. We have really enjoyed following their blog. But imagine our surprise, our red cheeked beary delight, to be awarded the Liebster blog award by Jar of Salt as one of five blogs that brighten their day!

To accept the award we have been asked to do the following:

1.  Acknowledge the person that gave the award and link back to their blog.

Wooo hooo, hello Jar of Salt, thank you for nominating us!! Click here to find their blog which is supergood!

2. Copy and paste the award to your own site.

Right, there you go, that one is done.

3.  Share 5 of your choice blogs to award (they are supposed to have under 200 folowers but how you are supposed to gain that information I dont know so we have had to ignore that) and let them know by commenting on their blog.

Oh my, well we want to get this right, which is why we didn’t respond straight away to our Liebster Blog Award but really thought who should get the award and why so here goes.

First up is Ann Perrin who writes quirky posts about things that make us either think or laugh (and sometimes both), creates the most wonderful puppets (check out her YouTube channel), leaves interesting comments on our blog and writes great poetry. Check out Ann’s blog to see why its a ‘must follow’!

At number two ladies and gentlemen (this isn’t in any order of preference though) is Witch Mountain a blog that describes itself as Art, Design and Life on the Moors, that is the Yorkshire Moors by the way. This is a lovely, intelligent, creative blog and there is a bear thing going on too so it ticks all the boxes for us.

Number three is Mod Flowers. A celebration of vintage fabrics, mid-century modern and lot more beside. Yah!

Four is Morecambe Variety Festival which has just happened last weekend, looks so much fun, is a beautiful inspirational blog (we love seaside variety shows) and we hope they will continue to blog throughout the year!

Five is Lobsterboy……….because we just love the drawing.

We found when we were making our list (and trust me we wanted to share so many equally brilliant blogs and will compose another post soon on more interesting places to click) that one of our favourite blogs already had a Liebster but we can’t leave it out as we think the illustration is so superfantastic. Its Merge Leon’s blog London Daily Drawings.

Ok all done, thank you Jar of Salt, thank for the wonderful blogs we have nominated…………is this the bit where I burst into tears and get all Gwyneth Paltrow? And I’d like to thank all the bears who made this possible….sob…and I’d also like to thank, sniffle……..

Oh just brace up and have a cup of tea, says Benjamin.

  4. I love going to The Big Forest 🙂 Kindly say a bright hello to my furry friends please?

  5. Well done, I’ve enjoyed the things you have blogged! and now following some more… tis time consuming writing and reading but very entertaining!!

    • Thanks Carolyn. I dont think we realised quite how much of a responsiblity the blog would be when we started off but reading folks comments and views has made it all worthwhile. My fear was that we would have nothing to blog about! How could we have thought that? We have a list of future blog posts which runs to two sides of A4…!

  6. OMG! I think I’m going to tear… thanks a lot! and thousands of kisses! You REALLY deserve the liebster award and my gratitude 4ever 😀
