This is a Sweetheart of a deal! Claudia from The Story bestowed an award to my blog called Liebster Blog. I was told Liebster is Sweetheart in German, thus...Sweetheart Blog.  Claudia is a real Sweetheart in any language, and her blog is definitely one of my favorites, which is another definition listed for liebster. Claudia has lovely and thought provoking postings, a wordsmith in the best sense of the word. If you have not had the pleasure of reading The Story, don't delay...give yourself a present today!

The Liebster Award is meant to connect us even more and spotlight new bloggers who have less than 200 followers. (That was pure plagiarism from Claudia's posting). My apologies Claudia, but you said it so well!

Every blogging award usually is accompanied by a set of rules. This award is no has five rules. Easy-Peasey:

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.
4.  Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the Internet - other writers. 
5.  And best of all - have fun and spread the karma!

So in alpha order:

La Tejana...Shelly is a writer with a heart as big as her home state...Texas. You'll laugh, cry and be inspired.

Raindrops and Daisies...Fiona writes enthusiastically of her family's life in Ireland. It's full of lovely photography and delightful stories.

Simply Memories and Musings...Kathi is a woman well travelled. She lives life graciously, while striving to come to an understanding of some of its sad mysteries. 

Still Crazy After All These Years...Karen keeps me laughing and entertained with an honest outlook at life. Fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride!

Vintage Visionary...Amy a designer with heart and freshness in style. You'll love her tales of life in the design lane and living a newlywed's life of love and fun.

I think I've clinched this deal! Much love and appreciation to Claudia and to all my recipients for being Sweethearts in my world of Blogland! In case you haven't seen it on a globe recently, Blogland is a country of our own creation and citizens with kind and thoughtful hearts.

Shelly is very deserving of this award, Sush. I'm thoroughly enjoying her blog and, of course, yours. I'm absolutely positive that Shelly will have hundreds of followers in the very near future.

Sush said...

To ALL My Sweethearts...

I wish I had not had to limit the number of recipients to five...there would have been a list of many if I could so choose. I tried to select bloggers that have so much potential but fewer followers. I cherish each and every blog I follow, I hope you all know it..

Thank you so so much.

I am delighted to be given this award, you are so kind.

I have a lot to learn about blogging and am learning step by step (might take me quite a long while) but you have always been so supportive and kind with your comments.

I love your blog and reading about your life.

Thank you again for this (undeserved) award.

Well as usual I'm late to the party! Thank you kindly, Sush, for the award (my very first!) and for the kind words and support. This totally made my day, and I so appreciate you sending some new friends my way - as well as giving me some great new blogs to read and follow! Each one opens a door to a new view of the world, and I find it fascinating how different we can be as well as the many things we have in common.

Congrats and well done. I think this was a great "sweetheart" idea of an award.

Hey Sush, I checked out the blogs you gave awards to and signed up on the ones I wasn't already following.

Hi Sush! After reading your post, I had to go and read all the other blogs, too! What fun! Anyway, you were supposed to tell me something about yourself in your comment when you asked me the question. But, you can play the game on your blog, too! I might learn something about you!
