Within two days I received two "Liebster Blog " awards... That's so exciting for me!

The liebster blog award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers
liebster is german and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, loveliest, cutest . . .
the rules for the liebster award are: 
1. thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. reveal your five personal nominations and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. have faith that your followers will spread the love too!

One was given to me by "Chasing Lighting Bugs Studio Blog"  and the other one by "In My Wild Eden". I am absolutely honored as these two blogs are interesting and intelligent and so must be the people behind them! Thank you very, very much! I am pleased to pass it on to:

Helen Tilston Painter With her posts and photographs Helen takes her readers all over the world. There is always something to discover, see and learn!

Gipsy colours I can't understand the words Gipsy colors is writing as it is all in Czech. BUT the vibrant colours in her beautiful pictures inspires and make me happy.

Val's Alentejo Valerie is a fantastic woman! She has only just started blogging regularly but you can see that she walks through life with consciousness, open eyes and happiness!

A taste of Italy I love Anna's blog! She is Italian and she is a gifted cook! Her recipes make my mouth watering and she has given me ideas what to cook more than once! So if you need a cooking inspiration visit her!

HATTATT  Jane's and Lance's blog is simply wonderful. Often they make me giggle with their stories and I always admire their writing talents. 

All in all: If you have not yet visited these blogs then I recommend to do so. 
They are all different but all worth visiting.

The moon is shining into my window, blinking with his eyes and saying: Time to grab your book and dive into the night!

Sleep well out there!

PS. I am sorry for the small Font size. It looks perfect when editing but when it is posted it is all different. I guess you know what I am talking about...


  1. Oh, congratulations to the two awards of yours and thank you so much for mentioning my blog here! I'm very pleased ant truly honoured, thank you.

    I promise to write a brief explanation in English for you to any of my posts as I did in the latest one ;-) Have you noticed?

    With best wishes, Jana

  2. Dear Christa... You have made me so happy! I love your blog, too, because it's so YOU. And I can sense that you are a fantastic person, so very nice, friendly and spontaneous. You remind me of my lovely German friends and also I love getting an insight into life in Switzerland. You have opened new geographycal horizons for me. Thank you!
    Now that we have been nominated, do we get a lovely German heart to copy and paste on our blogs, and pass on to 5 blogs of our choice, or does that not apply to us lucky chosen five?

    Please explain as I am a bit "thick!" Christa!



  3. Hello Christa,

    My congratulations on your being chosen for the Liebster Blog Award. I will visit Chasing Lightening Bugs and In My Wild Eden.

    What a beautiful surprise to hear from you and to be Awarded the Liebster Blog Award. I am flattered, grateful and thrilled. This is my first Award of this nature. Again my sincere thanks.

    Sincerely, Helenxx

  4. Hello Christa:
    Many many congratulations on receiving not one but two awards!!

    It is wonderful when a fellow blogger compliments one by presenting an award and we are so thrilled that you have included us in your list. Only the delightful Helen is known to us and so we shall look the others up.

    We do not believe that we completely qualify for this award as we have more than the 200 Followers, but we shall tuck our award away in a cupboard where we can look at it and appreciate it in private!!!!

  5. Thank you so very much Christa,
    Wonderful news, that you have recieved the award twice.
    I am so delighted that anyone reads my blogs.. never thought i might get an award. It brightens my day, to know i have new blogger friends out there, that take time to read them. Its a new world for me.
    Thank you for all your lovely comments Christa.
    Do i now nominate my 5 choices.. or do you do that.. ! val
