Liebster Award

Last week Kimberly from An At Home Daughter tagged my blog with the Liebster Award. I wasn't quite sure what a Liebster Award was, so I looked it up. "Liebster" is a German word meaning favorite. This award is meant to be given to blogger with less than 200 followers.

 The rules are as follows:

1.) You must post 11 facts about yourself.
2.) You must answer the 11 questions the awarder has given you and make up 11 questions for the awardees to answer in turn.
3.) Tag 11 fellow bloggers.
4.) Notify them that you have awarded them.
5.) No tagging back.
6.) And the 11 blogs you tag must have no more than 200 followers.

Here are the answers to the questions Kimberly gave me:

  1. How do I get my bonnet fix? I really like to read historical fiction, so I guess reading.
  2. My favorite cookbook… I have so many, but I think that “Cooking with Praise” is my favorite.
  3. Yes, I have smelled the ocean and it was wonderful. My first trip to the ocean was when my family visited Williamsburg, Virginia. I was ten years old, and loved everything about that trip.
  4. Yes, I do shop at thrift shops, but sew most of my clothes.
  5. As a child I really enjoyed reading Nancy Drew books.
  6. I like my eggs fried sunny side up.
  7. No, I had never heard of the Weston A. Price Foundation, until this questionnaire.
  8. Tea most definitely!
  9. Dark chocolate is my favorite, but I am not too picky. : )
  10. No, getting lost is seldom an adventure for me.
  11. Frogs are neat. I always like to hear them on a summer evening.
Eleven Fact About Me:
  1. I am the oldest of three girls. My two younger sisters are twins.
  2. I love chickens, and look forward to having some again.
  3. We have two dogs and three cats.
  4. We live on a beautiful country road. And I have greatly enjoyed watching the leaves change color this year. It seems that the colors have been especially brilliant.
  5. I enjoy crocheting doilies and have several tucked away in my hope chest.
  6. I was home schooled grades 4-12th, and loved it!
  7. Jeremiah 29:11 is a verse that has always encouraged me.
  8. My favorite author is Augusta Evans Wilson.
  9. I love canning.
  10. I collect antique books.
  11. I love blue and white
Eleven Questions for My Awardees to Answer:

  1. Thank you Sarah!! It was so nice of you to think of me.
    Those questions are always fun, getting to know a person better.

    1. Thank you Heide! I so enjoyed your post. : )

  2. I loved it.
    I also have not one, but two hope chests. The first one was very tiny and filled up fast, so my mom got me another. They are one of those wonderful things of the past, that it seems no one cares about anymore. Everyone is throwing them away. Thats how I got my first one.

    1. I purchased my hope chest when Ames (a store similar to Wal-Mart) was going out of business when I was sixteen. I was so pleased and excited. I did fill it quite a while back, and have moved on to totes lately. : )
