Liebster Award!!!

A good friend of mine just nominated me for the "Liebster Award"!!! YAY!! Actually, when I opened the email I was like " Wow I received an award for my blog, then the next thought was" What the heck is a "Liebster Award"???

 So, I clicked on the link and did a little research. The Liebster Award is said to have began in Germany. Hint the name.."Liebster" which roughly translates to: sweetest, dearest, lovely
Anyways, the Liebster Award is for the newbie blogger(like myself) with a small amount of followers. When you receive this award it means that you are doing something right and someone has noticed your blog. This award allows you to tell alittle more about yourself to your followers and might just bring more followers in the process. (fingers crossed) :)  At this time, I would like to give alittle shout out to my oldest friend in the world Danielle of creatively homespun!!!

She is just amazing and is always there when I get in a tough bind, need a word of encouragement, or just if I need a shoulder to cry on. If you haven't checked out her blog yet I suggest it be your next priority. She is a multitasking mom and a sole entrepreneur. I do not know how she does it all!!!

So what do I have to do....

After accepting the "Liebster Award" you must post it to your blog and answer the 11 questions your nominator as left for you then you must nominate 5 to 11 other bloggers with your own set of 11 questions for them to answer for their followers. It kind of sounds like a chain letter but what a great way to get your blog out there for potential new readers.

Ok here we go with the Q&A.....

1. How did you decide on the title of your blog?
   Well it was kind of a toughie for me. I spent a good two weeks writing down different words and phrases till one day it just hit me!! I have a major love for nature & trees and I can not end my day with out having a cup of tea. So, in the end I came up with: twigs & teas

  My Crockpot Lime Pork Carnitas!!! I have to brag they are pretty amazing( Ryan ask for it at least once aweek!!) recipes to come!!!
3. What is your all time favorite piece of furniture?
 My favorite piece of furniture is kind of a toss up because I collect antiques and vintage items so I have a few pieces that I just can not live without. But if I had to pick one I would say my big black vintage trunk. I have had since I was a kid. It has all kinds of stamps on it from very old ocean liners.
4. Who is your fashion/style icon? [Ok, pick three.]
