Mein Liebster!

So, the universe is, like, totally awesome and earlier this week I received a 'Liebster Blog' bloggy award from my new Blogger-Girl-Crush Lady Daa Doo. Her blog is about Lady Stuff and cool stuff and it's fab. I recommend not drinking coffee while reading it, unless you like it when coffee comes outta your nose. I do not like that. But I Doo (see what I did there) like Lady Daa Doo.

The last award I received was at my high school formal.  Each subject department chose their recipients, and the English department had 'Alice in Wonderland' theme. I received the 'Alice' award*. I even remember Mrs Bland's introduction, as I walked up to accept. 
'She fell down the rabbit hole, of her own accord. She's Wistful, whimsical and wild.' 
I wish I was still that Alice. 
Even though all the sport boys yelled out 'FREAK' when I hit the stage. Suck it losers, I relish my teenage freakdom now!

Back to business....
What is a Liebster Award?
"Liebster is a German word, meaning dearest or beloved, but it can also mean favourite.  The idea behind the Liebster Blog Award is that it is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to create new connections and bring attention to these wonderful blogs."

Here's the to-do list of any Liebster award recipient:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog. (
Right click on the award image and save it to your hard-drive and then upload it to your blog).
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the Internet – other bloggers.
5. And best of all – have fun and spread the karma!

Ok, so now I get to award some Liebster's! 

Accidental Wonderland When I discovered Miss Ames' blog, I thought to myself, "Look, it's me, 11 years ago! But with more confidence and a nicer life!" 
tsk tsk Beautiful,  dreamy art by Brisbane artist Tiel. 
Sheri Bomb Sheri is a Gil Elvgren poster come to life. Her blog is an awesome glimpse into the Rockabilly culture. She is a great writer too.
Skiddadle Super cool paper toys,  puzzles and illustrations by my brother in law.
Mike and Kayla These two are nuts.

So, my few and fabulous readers, go check out some of these guys!

and once again,

what was the last award you received?
