Hi everybody,
my name is Francesca, I am italian and I usually blog at
Last week I received an e-mail from my darling Anna where she asked me to do a guest post
for her, here in her interesting and so informative blog
(thanks Anna for all the infos you give us about fruits!).
I couldn’t refuse, that’s obvious!!
I “met” Anna at the very beginning of my blogging adventure almost a year ago and we have continued to keep in touch ever since, isn’t this blogland just faboulous??!
I know how much she misses North Emisphere Autumn and so I thought to give her some Autumn with this guest post, I hope you will like it my dear friend!
So let the Autumn fairy blow…….

and bring here some wonderful Autumnal images.Pumpkins and Autumn are so poetic, aren’t they?

And we can prepare so many tasty recipes with pumpkins!
I am totally in love with
pumpkin soup with a bit of cinnamon!! Mmmm…

I hope you’ve been able to feel some Autumnal breeze Anna.

Has the fairy done a good job??!!

Hi! I am Kristin from A Page Of Inspiration and I am so honored to guestpost for my blogfriend Anna today. I have followed her for quite some time, and I think she chooses her posts carefully. They’re always nice! Hope you’re having a great trip, Anna!

In my country we have Autumn now and it is getting colder each day. A few days ago I decorated my house with a little orange here and there. It makes such a difference! When I found these interior pictures I just had to show them to you…

Orange is the perfect touch! And how beautifully these colors go together.

What a difference two lamps can make!

Have a lovely day everyone!!!

Hi, it’s Carole here from Dear Designer’s Blog.
I must say that when Anna asked me if I would do a guest post for Around My Table while she is away in Europe, I was absolutely delighted.  It is such an honour!  Anna has been a very loyal supporter of DD and a good friend and it’s my pleasure to hold the fort for a day.
I’m going to take this opportunity to talk about my home town a little.  London.
And my favourite place in the whole wide world on a Sunday morning.   Columbia Road Flower Market.

I have been visiting Columbia Road since I was a little girl hanging on to my Dads hand.  My aunt lived in one of the Victorian Houses in the adjacent streets and we would buy trays of marigolds and forget me nots.  

The trick was to get there either very early when the flowers were at their freshest, or just before the stalls packed up, when there were always bargains to be had.  

These days it’s become a very trendy place to go and is on the tourist trail but it’s still a fantastic sight to see.  The flowers are still fabulous in their Technicolor glory.  The air is still intense with a heady perfume and the chants of ‘everythin a fiver’ can still be heard.  Many of the stall holders have had the same pitch since the early seventies and some from even earlier than that.

The Victorian shops that line Columbia Road and the streets around it haven’t changed much either but they now house a very diverse and eclectic breed of shopkeeper.  From antiques to fashion, vintage to jewellery, a visit to Columbia road these days is as much about the shopping as the flowers.

And no trip to the market is complete without a bagel. Yum.
