I am happy to announce that I have been nominated for a Liebster award by Katrin of KreativK! And what is the Leibster award, I hear you asking?? Well, It is an award by bloggers given to new bloggers. It encourages sharing and the discovery of new bloggers in the community. In other words, we want to spread the love.
(Scary looking man who plays nice relaxing music.. play while reading...)
Firstly, I want to thank gracious Katrin for the nomination and I will do my best to live up to the honor of this award, by answering, asking and sharing all around! Make sure you all visit Katrin's blog KreativeK, to see what lovely projects she is up to!

Questions from Katrin to be answered:
1. What is your favourite book? That is a really difficult one. I would have to go with my all time favorite J.RR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, but close second would be The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky.
2. What is one international food dish you would like to make or learn how to make? Paella. I had gone to the Canary Islands for my honeymoon and that is the one dish I remember eating when we were up in the mountains among the clouds!
3. A place you haven’t visited but are dying to go to? Florence, Italy. My college professor had sent me a post card from there back when I was still in college and he instilled in me the love of art! I could easily spend a month there just visiting all the art museums and of course there is the architecture...
4. Favourite Ikea furniture if you’re in to Ikea…? Is it possible to choose??? Maybe those relaxing rocker chairs. I generally like the clean lines of the designs and their no fuss approach to everything. I also love their fabrics! I
5. Sam Smith or Bruno Mars? Definitely Bruno!!
6. Do you have a secret talent? Now if I told, it wouldn't be secret... in fact it might even be a secret from me! My kids say it's my ability to keep the household calm - is that even a talent?
7. What do you need to relax? Beethoven's emperor 4 (above please) and a glass of wine!
8. What is your Must~Do every day? Make the bed - otherwise I cannot function!
9. Coffee or Tea? Lots and lots of coffee!
10. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be? New York because that is where my family is, but my dream place would be further south... maybe Virginia. Of course, where I am now is not so bad if we didn't have the Greek economic crisis.
11. What makes you smile faster than anything? The funny things my kids tell me every day.
Proof that I love Ikea fabrics!!

Before I finish I would also like to add one more thing, I'd like to personally thank Lauren of Bless'er House and Liz Marie of LizMarieBlog, because they were the first bloggers whom I started to follow and in their own way without even knowing it, they inspired me to start this little space of mine. And I'd also like to thank Larissa from Prodigal Pieces for being my furniture makeover Godess! Girls, thanks from the bottom of my heart! This little place is truly a haven for me!
That's it for me. I'd like to thank Katrin again for nominating me! I can't wait to see what the answers to my questions will be for my nominees!
I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
