Yesterday my friend Wafa Rashed sent me all these delightful photos of Eve at Sunday night’s 1001 Eves tea party. The more she sent (this went on all day!) the fewer I included in my previous post, simply because hers were much nicer. Of the 53 Eves exploring Dar Nur, she found 39. Not bad! Thank you, Wafa, for these wonderful photographs! Read More

I wanted my Eves to have an official ‘coming out’ party so Noor and I set a meet-and-greet tea last night at her shop. The weather was lovely and Eve got to meet a few of our friends and family members. And somehow the event turned into an Eve treasure hunt. It was fun and a great way to end this frantic month!
