Happy Monday, Folks! and Happy Memorial Day – being a military daughter and now spouse, Memorial Day has always had a special place in my heart. I love the spirit of reflection, patriotism, and honor shared and spread on this day! I hope you too take a moment to reflect on what Memorial Day is all about!

This is a quick post I have been meaning to write for a while…a long while.  You see, about a month ago, the lovely Viv from Big K Fam gave me the Liebster Award! (You can read my nomination here – and thanks for all the nice commits, Viv!).

{Here’s a quick run-down of the award: it’s a pay-it-forward kind of award.  Once you get “handed” one, you then get to pick 5 of your favorite blogs to give it to.  The rules are that the blogs you want to give this honor to must have under 200 or so followers.  And you must mention the blogger who awarded you with this honor.}

If you haven’t heard about the Liebster Award, it’s a pass-it-on blog award to recognize what I think of as “The Little Blogs That Could” around the blog-o-sphere! I love the premise behind this award. There are so many gems-of-a-blog out there after all, and this is a great way for us (if I can lump myself into the category 😉 to get some recognition!

For a month or so now, I have been compiling a list of little blog gems to give my Liebster Award to! As I sat down to write this post however…I discovered most of them already received it! Boo. And as I hunted around for other worthy recipients, I found that MOST of the blogs I read or found have received it too! Double Boo. This really is a case of the “early bird gets the worm!” Shame on me for procrastinating 🙁

Nonetheless, I didn’t want this great little blog-highlighting gift to go to waste, so I thought I would give some shout-outs to some of my favorite “Little Blogs That Can” Craft anyway!

Here we go!


Bonnie has lovely projects, takes lovely photos and uses lots of lovely colors…all of her projects have a truly “simple” loveliness about them!
I found Woven Home when she did an amazing owl-treatment on her son’s wall! She has lots of great projects and ideas! 
Now here is a real “ruby” of a blog! I adore Jamie’s craft room – such a wonderful blend of organization and color!
I just found this blog, and Bernadette not only has some wonderful inspiration boards for cute nurseries, but also has lots of great links and ideas! This is now one of my go-to places for nursery and play-room ideas! (And what a cute blog name!)

Not only does Kara have one gorgeous living room, but she takes the most incredible pictures of her kids! She absolutely inspires me to learn my camera and take better photos!


So there you have it. Five “little” blogs that I love and you might consider loving too! I’m always on the hunt for a new gem-of-a-blog to start following. Are you one? Put your link in my comments section so I can find you!!

Be back later this week with another great party to show you!

See You Soon!
