My First Blog Award!

Thank you to the gorgeous Vintage by Lou Lou for my FIRST blog award!! Her own blog and online store are filled with creativity and inspiration. SO worth visiting!

The rules for this aware are:-
1. Thank the award giver - thanks Lou!
2. List 10 things that make you happy
3. Pass the award on to 5 people

So here I go with ten things that make me happy!

1. China ALWAYS makes me smile. I love beautiful table settings and china, china and more china! My life philosophy - If all else fails buy china!

2. Hunting for great vintage finds. The actual adrenalin producing "hunt" is the part I love the best! There is nothing better than finding gorgeous vintage furniture tucked underneath some one's house! At the moment I am quite obsessed with cane and cushions! I don't think a day goes by when I don't think about fabrics!

3. Eating with friends around my dining table. It was actually an old library table I found at the bottom of an antique shop a few years ago. I love having dinner parties on this table as it is so interactive!
4. Drinking tea on my hot pink and white lounge chair. I purchased this one from Black and Spiro and haven't regretted a cent of it!
5. Believe it or not I love cooking around my kitchen lamp each night! It makes my food look
and taste better!
6. My charity work with teenager's...and writing books that inspire people to be their best.

7. My family and Greek heritage. My grandparents are such amazing people.

Now to the really important stuff! My kids!!!
8. Introducing Matthew Mitchell! Is he not the cutest kid ever?
9. Introducing Ben Mitchell! The most handsome boy in the world.

10. And now for my niece...Daniella.
Cooking cupcakes with my her always makes me smile! She LOVES the icing!
PS. My darling husband also makes me happy...ran out of room baby! You know I love you!

I'd like to pass this award onto the following bloggers:-

1. Katherine from The Old Boat House, because her vintage finds rock!
2. Kellie from Little French Nest, because I lover her style.
3. Verandah House, because I love cane too!
4. Blair from Design by Delight, because your posts always inspire me!
5.Tina from Rubies Place, because she has a beautiful blog and is a beautiful lady.
