A Happy Day in Blogland...Liebster Award and My First Features

I couldn't be happier in blogland today...
First, I was presented with the Liebster Blog Award by Snickety Things!  Liebster is a German word that means dearest, favorite or beloved.  This is an award to recognize up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers.  I am honored and thrilled...and I haven't stopped smiling!

After receiving the Liebster Blog Award, you can pass it along by following these 5 rules:
1.  Thank the person who gave it to you.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Snickety Things!!!
2.  Link back to their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog.
It is proudly displayed in my sidebar!
4. Present the award to 3-5 blogs with less than 200 followers.  
Here are five blogs that I think deserve this recognition and award:
Grateful Belly presents super yummy recipes in a fun and interesting way
Paisley and Porter has beautiful photos and home decor inspiration
A Happy Mum has terrific crafts and touching stories of motherhood abroad
School Time Snippets is full of kids crafts and learning activities
A Crafty House has beautiful knit and crochet patterns and more
5.  Leave them a comment letting them know you have recognized their blog.

Second (and third), my Lego Cake was featured at Homemaker on a Dime and Serendipity and Spice!  My first features, hooray!  What an exiting weekend for my little blog!
Check back soon for a Freezer Paper Stencil Monogrammed Shirt Tutorial, a 3 Ingredient Tootsie Roll flavored cake and some pretty antique furniture finds.
And, make sure you don't miss my easy  3 Ingredient Cake recipe!
