Thank you FiFi

Thank you Miss Fifi!
 Where you can find my home this summer.
My very dear friend, Miss Fifi O'Neill, put me in touch with the creators of these lovely magazines, Shabby Style from France, Country Chic for Italy, and Romantisch Einrichten for Germany. 

My home and art work will be in their July issue of Shabby Style, and I will let you all know when the other two features are available this summer.
 FIFI O'NEILL, of course you know her, she speaks in a French accent, travels the globe styling beautiful homes, and is the author of Romantic Prairie Style, Romantic Prairie Cook Book and due out soon, PRAIRIE STYLE WEDDINGS.
The new book, like all of her other books, will be a huge success!  Prairie style has caught on like wildfire! I love the concept of a clothing line as it is so hard to find pretty, romantic clothing with a vintage feel. It's all just perfect!
Fifi walks to the beat of her own drum. Always Authentic, Always Original,  Always inspiring...
How adorable are those boots ah???
Thank you dear Fifi!
Meet Debra, who lives south of Cape Cod and attended a private painting class. She has painted before, and it shows here in her work. You did an awesome  job Debra!!!!

Until next time,
