Weekend with Fifi's Book et Merci Fifi!

I'm spending this weekend with my dear friend, Fifi's book here at ma maison.  
Yes, a weekend enjoying Romantic Prairie Style's beauty ~ belle.

I am in love with Fifi's Cottage... wondering if she'd notice me living there.  I'd be quiet as a mouse, but doubt Zeke would be or my chats Francais!

I'm moving furniture, creating new visual interest around My Petite Maison this weekend since I've been inspired to no end with Fifi's enchanting book.

My naturally lit bedroom ~ in its romantic shape I love

Makes me want to run around and stage My Petite Maison to be ever so graceful in its look and love in all things that shuffle my sentimental heart around with memories and love.


Thank you to Tausha for giving me names of products (bottles) I viewed on your blog so I could track them down (right here in my much loved town ;)  Kind people are the very best!

So, back to Fabulous Fifi's book... are you spending the weekend with Fifi's beautiful book?
I am going to sit out on my porch on Sunday and listen to the rain fall and flip from page to page again.

Lastly, I want to take a moment and with my entire HEART say merci, Fifi for including 
My Petite Maison among your shopping sources.  

I love you, Fifi, not for your talent (well, that too ;)
but for your huge kind, kind, heart.  

You lift, share, inspire, give and are loved.

My Petite Maison ~ Shopping Source for Romantic Prairie Style

I'm back to moving things around, creating vignettes and of course, loving this book of beauty and wonderful lifestyle book as well by the one and only Fifi O'Neill. (Don't forget to check out her Amazon profile, just click link above ;)

Have a wonderful weekend, I'm off to move some things around and give a big French dog a kiss on the nose for luck (chance).

Happiness to you!

Gorgeous room Tracie! No need to change a thing, but I can relate to this feeling of 'spring' in the air and freshening up.
I can't wait to see Fifi's book, and congrats on your mention as a wonderful resource!

That looks like a wonderful book. Isn't it fun how looking at pretty pictures like that, gives us the reshuffling mood right away.

Now that's what I call a real "Lost Weekend" and what a way to go!
Congrats on having your name up in print. That's better than in lights in the back yard.
P.S. Give that big french dog a kiss from me too.
P.P.S. Love the tonic water!

Simply Me said...

Yes i did see the photos at Free people, did you see that crochet bag, i told my husband that's my Anniversary may 25th 5 years..Its funny I'm not a big jewelry fan, but buy me a bag hopefully that's what he gets me..

I LOVE your beautiful home Tracie. Everytime I get to peek into it I fall in love all over again. What a haven of beauty you have created. The book looks divine. I will be getting my own copy soon and can hardly wait to carve out a special time to savor it as well.
sending hugs your way...
