the presses!!!!

i've been given the liebster award by 2 lovely women....lisa from in my wild eden and demie at paraphernalia. i'm honored and smiling and thinking of all the lovely blogs i want to give it to in turn.

the liebster blog award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers.
liebster is german and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, loveliest, cutest . . .
the rules for the liebster award are:
1. thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. reveal your five personal nominations and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. have faith that your followers will spread the love too!

i am passing this award on to five blogs that i look forward to reading....

tracy at beautiful day. her beautiful spirit comes through in every post. her love of life and all that makes it artful comes tumbling out of her amazing photographs and words.

angy at brown paper packages. i love the energy that comes from her posts about her day to day life. warm and fun and i always look forward to her comments on my own blog.

petra at indivisualism. not only do i love her blog name. and her given name. but i love her eye. her photographs are magnificent and she is wise and perceptive

lilli at mothwise. i've only recently found this lovely blog full of ethereal photographs and bursting with emotion and authentic sincerity.

carol at ophelia unraveling. this blog is filled with carol's gripping poetry and witty observations. i find myself going back to read and re-read these poems. and carol....well she's just plain awesome.

jen at country weekend. a wonderful woman with a lovely little shop in the catskills and a blog full of wonderful observations.

emilie's daughter
. i've just recently discovered this great little spot full of recipes, design ideas, photographs. i had to add it.

yep, i chose a couple of extra people. i never can quite follow directions. thanks again....enjoy these wonderful blogs!


  1. Hello Annette:
    Many congratulations on your award. And such fun. We shall certainly look at the blogs which you, in turn, have nominated.

    In the meantime, jó hétvégét.

  2. I have just returned from work and was so surprised to find out that I was nominated for "Liebster blog". I am totally surprised and very, very happy! These things are the fuel to go on. With pleasure will I follow the rules and announce it in my next post. What can I say? THANK YOU so very much, Annette! You have certainly made my weekend! ♥ Christa

  3. Annette--Heartfelt congratulations to you! I look forward to reading your blog every day. Your writing is lovely and substantial and insightful and I am so grateful that I found you.

    Thank you so much for nominating my blog for this sweet award--you have made me very happy! I look forward to visiting the other nominees, and expanding the ripples.


  4. You wonderful woman! I wanted to break the rules and nominate more too, but you actually did it! There are so many wonderful blogs that deserved it, but I am so happy in following up with the people I gave it to that several of the ones I wanted to give it to but couldn't, received it anyway! I wonder if I can go back and do it again to make up for all the people I couldn't fit into the five. (hmmm) Have a wonderful day!

  5. dear Annette, you deserved it! and the blogs you have chosen here are all wonderful : )

  6. Annette,

    Congratulations on your award. You have a beautiful blog filled with wonderful wise words!


  7. Kudos to you my friend, I love to come to this space, as I have told you, last thing before bed. Your ponderings are then intertwined with my sleepy time and dreams. I am very careful what to let in, in that sacred time...but your words are always peace and inspiration! Thank you so much for nominating me - I am on the mend and will mention your kindness soon, on my blog :) See you in the studio, soon .....

  8. thank you so much. I feel very honoured :) and am very glad I found you and your lovely online space xxx
