Hello. Not so recently I've won the leibster award. Liebster means dearest in German. The award is given to blogs that have less than 200 followers as a way of raising their profile and giving encouragement. I'm feeling rather slack and ungracious, as I have been quite slow to respond. Better late than never!

Card from my great-great grandmother's scrapbook

I'd like to thank Shelley from four point four. Shelley lives in a small Australian country town, where she takes seriously lovely photos of her day to day life ...

and Jo from Binds you to me. Jo lives in Scotland, where she loves all things 1970's (from vintage pottery to fashions) and has the two most brilliantly red-headed children I've ever seen.

They both nominated me days from the other. Please take a peek at their lovely blogs.

Here are a few more captivating blogs, which if they choose can pass on the award:
a is for love
gypsy lou 
the boys and the birds

Enjoy surfing!

ps I don't think I've followed the leibster rules exactly here, but I figured it is mainly about sharing some love.
