Liebster Blog Awards


The super-lovely Wendy from Salt & Wine made our week when she told us that she had selected us for a Liebster Blog Award! Thank you Wendy! 

The exact origins of the Liebster's are mysterious, but it is believed they began in Germany. Liebster means "favourite" or "dearest" in German and the awards are given to smaller blogs with less than 200 followers. They recognise the blog author's creative writing and dedication while also bringing blog owners together to exchange ideas and information.

Since we have been given an award by Wendy, we know have the fun (but really hard) job of passing the award on to five of our favourite blogs. Since we love reading so many wonderful blogs out there it has been really hard to choose just five, but here they are!

Do A Bit:  Lamina is an awesome, super-crafty mum from Sydney who seems to be able to make anything! From screen printing, sewing and knitting to drawing and designing patterns for textiles she loves trying new crafty things. Lamina definitely has a talent for anything handmade, which makes us a wee bit jealous! We're sure her gorgeous screen print designs will make their way onto some fabric and textiles a la Lotta Jansdotter one day soon... 

Pannikin: Pannikin a.k.a Holly Leonardson is a super cool, Brisbane based illustrator and accessories designer who also has awesome-ly coloured hair. Her work includes illustrations, earrings, brooches, rings and tote bags which you can find on her Etsy shop. Her latest designs are handmade from wood and feature brightly coloured geometric shapes and cute little animals.

Vintage Sweetheart: Em is someone seriously gifted in the art of thrifting! Her beautiful vintage finds are always envy inducing, if there's a gorgeous retro frock somewhere odds are she'll snap it up! We love seeing her photos of the pretty thrifted outfits she has put together and the other accessories she has found on her op-shopping adventures. 

Pretty Quirky: Vicky is a fashionista from Northern Ireland who posts photos of her amazing outfits on her blog. Vicky is seriously talented in the fashion department and we love seeing all the different (and gorgeous) outfits she puts together, and seeing where she's picked everything up from. But be warned, reading her blog may induce some definite wardrobe envy!

Bec I Am: Bec is a crafter and mum who especially loves sewing and creates pretty tote bags available for sale on her Etsy shop. We love reading her posts about crafty things and seeing the lovely sewing projects she comes up with! Her section of photos of the cakes she has made is seriously awesome- Australian Women's Weekly eat your heart out! 


Here's what you do if you have been chosen for a Liebster (if you choose to accept):
-Thank and link back to the person who awarded you.
-Reveal your five selections for Liebster Blog Awards.
-Inform the five other bloggers by leaving them a comment on their blog.

Have a great weekend everyone!
xoxo Lauren and Sarah
