Coffee table talk

In response to Alicia's post on "What's on your coffee table?" I've promised to snap some pictures of it. It's a teak table I had custom made with brass inlay on the corners. On it are a few knick knacks. Things I've collected from my travels in colours that depict my heritage.
My favourite turquoise stone better known as a Fairuz set in silver with Arabic scripture written on it
Candles light up my copper bowl.
A whimsical book called Arabian Nights.
Often enough I prefer to serve mint tea rather than coffee on my table.

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed sharing,
Till next time,
Adla

achhh I'm screeching, can't get the pictures to show up...I'll just have to keep trying, I know they will eventually!!! I don't have a coffee table in use because of my Mindylou (dog) who is blind. We try to keep the area open for her...

The pictures aren't showing up for me, either. Boohoo. I'd love to see.

Adla said...

Hi Girls, I can't seem to figure out why the pictures aren't showing up for you, it could be a blogger problem. Do check back a bit later for some mint tea :) Thanks for the sweet comments.

Hi Adla, thanks for sharing your coffee table, its a great place to start isnt it when sharing some house pics!! It just looks so cosy at your house, a nice place to sit down with a good book. Thanks for sharing hon!! OOh can I have a glass of mint tea please?

Hi Adla! Nice to meet you. :)

Great to know you were at the craft fair too. It was unbelievably hot. I tried to have a wander around all the stalls in the afternoon when I had a break, but I was too hot and tired to linger long or spend any money. Sorry I didn't make it to your stall. I tried to see them all but somehow missed a whole lot.

I look foward to seeing you one day at another fair. Are you going to the one at Fremantle on the 2nd of december?
