In other news, Friday is National Wear Red Day, in support of the fight against heart disease in women. Visit their website to find out more about how you can donate to this worthy cause. In addition, Traditional Home magazine wrote to me and asked if I would pass on the word to you about their Really Really Red Auction to support the same effort, so click here to see what you can bid on for a great cause.

Happy Day everyone!

PS. Friday is the last day on my blog to enter the giveaway for a great book, so if you haven’t yet entered, click here.

    Am looking forward to your Inspiration Week and that special guest! As for coffee tablescapes, mine constantly evolves. I am always changing it around. At the moment, it has books, a pair of antique British walnut-and-silver candlesticks and a Moroccan red and white patterned bowl with a lid (from the days when the French colonised Morocco).

    Cheers, Adla
