Stylish Blogger Award !

Looks like someones gone mad and given me an award and that someone is Donna over at papercrowsanddragonflies.blogspot.com.Personally  I think she has been spending too much time in close confines with her ink pads but I thank her all the same.
I really love her blog it was one of the first ones  I discovered and have been avidly following it ever since.

By accepting this award I agree to link back to her and to share seven things about myself.

1. I was born in the UK but moved to Greece 22 years ago to start a new life with my Greek husband Teo
2. We have two sons Alexis 19 and Aris 15.
3. Two mad dogs Bailey and Rosy hence my blog title.
4. Together with Teo we design and manufacture jewellery which we sell in our lovely shop in Thessaloniki Greece.
5. I love to cook especially Japanese,Thai in fact anything Asian.
6. I love even more to eat especially Japanese Thai in fact anything Asian !
7. love trying new things and fall in love on a regular basis with my new hobbies bordering a little on the obsessive. Guess what I'm in love with at the moment !

As part of my acceptance I also have to pass on this award to other recent blogs I have discovered. Well that's the hardest part as I have only been blogging since January ! So every blog is a recent and truly magical discovery and source of inspiration to me so can I nominate everyone's blog I have left a comment on .

At the risk of having my award confiscated I would like to pass this award on to the following people .
kissinia.blogspot.com  we started out blogging at the same time and are both newcomers
Yvonne artic-blonde-creations.blogspot.com For her support from the beginning at her great humour.
Zoe zoechaos.blogspot.com. She is always first to comment on my efforts and always makes me laugh.
Irini  craftycroppersgr.blogspot.com
Florence florenceandfreddie.wordpress.com/
Faye hastingshall2.blogspot.com/
Netty nettyscraftings.blogspot.com

Thank you all for taking the time to encourage me and make me laugh and for not laughing at me.
