I was so excited and pleased to have been nominated  for
the Liebster Blog Award by my friend Norma From
The FairyyellowbugQueen Thank You so much,
I am honored and humbled by your generosity.

Evidently the Liebster Blog Award originated in Germany.
Liebster is the German word for dearest or beloved,
 and Liebe means love.
The award is to encourage readership of small,
lovable blogs with fewer than 200 followers.

The rules are simple as with all awards, paying it forward,
is a given, so here we go with the guidelines
 In order to accept the award you need to :
1. Link back to the person's blog who
   gave you this award and thank them
2. Post the Award on your blog
3. Give the award to five fellow blogger who inspire you
    and have fewer than 200 followers
4. Leave a comment on their blogs to let them
    know they have been nominated

I am a follower of many talented friends,
some new some old.
I am constantly inspired by and
 love the blogs of everyone I follow.
My picks for this award today are my bloggy friends:
Rosa ~ without whom I would never have started a blog
Gabry Road      and   Raspberry Ruffles
Well done my bloggy friends!!

......and yesterday while exiting the grocery store,
I glance over and see this add on
the bulletin board...Antique Sewing Machine
well you can imagine the rest
In my defence, it was priced to sell
It is home, not sure where I am going to put it yet...
DH was thrilled to have to go view this last minute,
move the new dryer we just purchased over and strap
this down for the ride home.... Yeah!!!

And as with the award, it was made in
Germany!! Perfect for this post
I really will have to research this one,
I don't know a thing about it
