Liebster Awards

Quite some time ago Johnny from Feed The Piglet food blog nominated my blog for the Liebster award! If I could I would certainly award him the Liebster again, as I love his blog and his photos are beautiful and he posts lots of really mouthwatering recipes too.
I was rather chuffed and really not sure if I am deserving of this award as I rarely write my blog these days, I often have high intentions to write various different posts but have not done so for ages.
(so I'm going to make a deal with myself to try and write a post per week from now on...)
There is a description below of the Liebster awards:

*** The Liebster, which means ‘favorite’ in German, is a way to recognize your favorite blogs that have fewer than 200 followers. What a great and supportive way to get the word out about up and coming blogs!
When you receive the Liebster award, you are supposed to do the following:
Choose five up and coming blogs to give the Liebster award to. Blogs must have less than 200 followers.
Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
Post the award on your blog.
List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites. Leave a comment on their blogs to let them know they’ve received the award.
Share five random facts about yourself.***

It was a hard choice and I'm not sure of how many followers each blog has but without further ado, here goes:

All the Luck in the World
I love the look of this blog and of course the name too, lot of lovely inspirations and images of what Jane makes and collects.
Anja Mulder
Such interesting and beautiful photos, I discovered Anja through flickr , I wish I took such good photos as I am continually inspired by them.

Katy has very recently taken off with her blog and is extremely crafty, lots of good ideas to make where she incorporates her love of thrifting and design. 
Kerrisa Maddocks 
Kerrisa's blog is a sweet compilation of lovely photographs of food and design and her creations, she also writes and does photographs for the DairyMaid Diary.
I've just recently discovered this blog through my friend Marisa and immediately liked it with good photos and her own illustrations and she also lives in Brighton, where I'd live if I was in the UK.

And now for five random facts about myself:

1. I love planes and look up into the sky every time I hear one. I had an obsession with concorde, it started when I lived in London and for fifteen years it would fly over my flat twice a day on its way to New York, I could lean out of my kitchen window and see it fly over then run through to my bedroom and lean out there and watch it curve. I can't tell you how many times I did this, and how happy it made me!

2. I have to admit to being a 'cat lady'. I have four cats, all lovely in their own way.

3. Cycling , taking photos and flowers make me happy.

4. I love soul music.

5. I like to eat sardines out of the tin.
