Liebster Award - spreading some bloggy love

I received this lovely award from Kerry over at Kerry on Living and was moved to blushing by her kind comments. The idea behind the award is to spread a little loving into quiet corners of the blogging world and hopefully introduce readers to new and amazing blogs. I was grinning like a fool when I got my award! Thank you, Kerry, for my award - I am touched and grateful.

My mission, which I have accepted is:

1) Create a post on my blog and add the Liebster blog image.

2) Link back to the person who gave me the award and say if I accept.

3) Choose 3-5 of my favourite blogs, link to these in my post and tell these lucky bloggers that they've been tagged.

So, who to choose? There are so many blogs I visit and enjoy and it has been difficult, but here are my three picks:

The utterly delightful and talented Doodlemum, whose blog is a riot of fantastic drawings, documenting her everyday (and often fantastical) life with her children. I don't think I can convey in words just how much I love this blog! The drawings are tender, funny and honest and I want one on my bedroom wall...

Jane @ How I Like My Coffee is an inspiration to me. She writes funny and intelligent stuff on her blog and takes some great photographs too. She's got a wild leaping cat called Tao who is totally awesome and her writing always says something to me. Jane has leukaemia, but her blog is not a well of hideous cancer misery - it is life-affirming and I love it.

Suzanne over at Sky Blue Sea is a talented artist and makes beautiful things. I love her blog as her art and the way she writes about it has a nostalgic air and love just comes tumbling out of the pages as you read. She is warm and friendly and an all-round good sort. Get over there and check out her wares!

So there are my bloggy-loves. Please go and check them out and please spread a little blog love around yourselves if you'd like to.
