fifi's fabulous book

A few nights of not blogging and what do I miss? HUGE news from Fifi about her book including the title (Romantic Prairie Style) and a peek at the GASP-inducing jacket.

Let's look at this cover photo by Mark Lohman again of dreamy Maria's dreamiest dining room. What I love most of all is knowing that the room was styled by Fifi. I can detect elements of pretty Fifi-fication.

It takes me back to May when Fifi and I went to my local market for flowers and fruit for her to style my own dining room for an upcoming issue of Cottage Style. {Sorry to repeat. I can't help myself!}

Warmest congratulations to Fifi on her beautiful book. Fifi is tireless, stylish, generous and warm. She is part fairy - part rock star - and all fabulous!

Hardcover due in April and available for pre-order here at Amazon.
