The Liebster Blog Award

As a newer blogger, one of my favorite aspects of this new venture is the incredibly supportive blogging community. I have “met” and connected with some wonderfully talented and helpful people in these last few months.

Last week, Elegant Nest received The Liebster Blog Award from Alicia over at the blog Sweet Ava Kate. I was so surprised, and honored to be recognized by Alicia. She is very talented and friendly and I am looking forward to a long blogging friendship!

The Liebster Blog Award promotes blogs with less than 200 followers, as a way to get their names out there. Apparently, Liebster means 'beloved or dearest,' but it can also mean 'favorite.'
As a Liebster award recipient, I now have the opportunity to pass this award on to five other bloggers.

In order to accept this award, the recipient must do the following:

1. Thank the person that presented the award.
2. Link back to that person(s) blog.
3. Copy and paste the award to your blog.
4. Present the award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers
(bloggers who you think deserve this special recognition)
5. Let those deserving bloggers know by leaving them a comment.

And the award goes to…

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door – I first found her blog through a link about her hallway makeover post…and I was an immediate fan! I love all of her before and after photos that showcase her talented eye.
Erin @ The Great Indoors – I found her blog when she sent me a nice comment back in March about one of my projects. After visiting her blog I knew it would become a favorite. I love her sense of humor and sense of design.
Lauren @ Simply LKJ – The funny thing about Lauren is that we have not officially “met” but I feel like we already know each other! The reason…we follow a lot of the same blogs and whenever I send a comment I notice that Lauren has already been there, and usually says exactly what I am thinking! We obviously have the same taste and opinions…we should meet for coffee and chat!
Laura @ Cookie Crumbs & Sawdust – This sweet lady writes so open and honest, you cant help but love her blog posts. She is currently renovating a 1960’s home which is something I can relate to – mine was built in 1967!
Gina @ A Sense of Design – This talented lady lives in Australia and I absolutely love her sense of style! She lives in a cottage near Sydney and her House Tour is not to be missed. From the blooming hydrangeas near her front porch, to the perfectly eclectic main bedroom – beautiful!
Thank You Alicia for sending me the Leibster Award…and to all my readers for their encouragement and support! I look forward to continuing this new venture, learning new things every day and meeting new friends along the way!
