Recently I was delighted and honored to be awarded the "blogger to blogger" Leibster award by the charming blog The Eclectic Shorebird. This award specifically recognizes and helps promote those blogs currently with smaller followings.
In keeping with Liebster tradition it's now my turn choose creative and unique blogs that have been inspirational to me but might still be undiscovered by many. My first award recipient is the enchanting Botanic Bleu.
I knew I'd adore Judith's blog when I popped over to her site and was greeted with a most sublime photo of a charming outdoor table set with delightful objects and mismatched chairs all with a seemingly effortless and very French flair. Just the way I would outfit my (dream) house in Province.
Botanic Bleu brims with charming ideas, travel tips (she could write a book on Paris), holiday ideas (she has a special fondness for Christmas) and tutorials for crafts and projects that add that je ne sais quoi to your life and home.
Judith is also a shop owner (sadly I'm no where near Texas) and seamlessly combines her blogging and retail talents in a wonderful resource for design inspiration dedicated to living every day with joy and grace.
Here are just few teasers

Part of the award involves a series of get to know you questions which the recipient will answer in an upcoming acceptance post and though I am no Barbara Walters he's a go:
