Hello dear Fifi... I'm so glad to hear that you're feeling better. :) That truck is awesome! We used to have one much like it (but in white of course... hehe), but it was wrecked by my dad years ago... I miss that old truck... and yes, my dad was fine. :)
The more I see of your fabulous book, the more I can't wait to get my copy! I'm really looking forward to it. :)
Hope you have a wonderful week coming up!

Dearest Fifi,

Glad you did finally recover from your nasty flu. Well, I bet that the stress factor with all your events and schedules, didn't help you either... But you certainly got lots of help from some nice ladies! That is great to see this happen.

Have a great week(end) and lots of love,

Hello excited, can't wait to receive my copy of your book {ordered today}!
Loved the peek...the photos are beautiful!!
Thank you for inspiring all of us who love the art of design.


Oh Fifi! The picture of you in the truck just stopped me dead! I used to own just such a truck, it was a 1954 Chevy painted a soft yellow. If I had that truck today it would be just that blue. It had the same wrap around rear windows and was so much fun to drive around in ....I lost it in a divorce but I kept the cat! Glad to hear you are on the mend. Take care.

It's me

Hello darling...wowwww all that pictures!!! wonderful......i love them!! ....lovely post...only the links to the blogs do not work !...happy weekend darling....enjoy it !! love love love

I can't wait to receive your book! My home has been featured in a brand new on-line magazine today.I am sooooo excited!!!!!

Let me know when you are going to be in the Portland Oregon area and I'll bring over our old super cool Rooster Run pick up truck....(!)
it has some great hand painted graphics- everything from the Rooster to one for S&H greenstamps.


Come on April! As soon as you announced your new book I knew (as we all did) it would be a show stopper. The preview pics you've posted make us even more excited to see the real deal.

Thanks so much for the chance to see the world through your eyes. You're just a joy to behold.

I'll be waiting.....

PS Stay well. Can't be feeling down on your debut.

I am so glad you are feeling better! We had something going around here too. I know a lot of people have had to be on antibiotics. It's terrible.

Darling FiFi!! You and I have a mutual friend! Laura D. She told me to contact you! and I have some new 'unseen' items that she wants me to send you! Thanks so much! I look forward to hearing from you!


Ravie de savoir que vous allez mieux ! J'en ai eu un aussi et j'ai été très malade ...
Quel merveilleux post ce jour ... et ce doit être un véritable succès d'édition ....
Votre talent est si grand et j'adore venir voir votre blog .... Je vois dans vos liens le blog des Décors de Marie qui a beaucoup de talent mais je crois que le bonheur c'est de faire partie de vos liens .. ce serait un enchantement pour moi ...
Bisous et belle journée ....


WOW, your book looks seriously AMAZING!!!!! Nothing like it out there! Stunning..I cant wait for my copy Fifi!


Hello dear Fifi,

I must admit I'm jealous of you. What a beautiful pick up truck! Love the color, wow!
And I love the pictures of your little photo album! The colors are light and I really could live in a house like these pictures show us!
Love, Nina.

Jan Ogden

Always love everything you post! Such a cute pick-up-truck!! My Uncle had one just like that when I was growing up. Finally have High-Speed, while at our daugters place. Catching up on all of your slides etc. Enjoying them.
Hope you're feeling better. Hugs to a very special person, Jan Ogden

Tapping Solution DVD

Your books sounds amazing! Congratulations!


Just pre-ordered my copy of THE book! Can't wait to get it. I think you should seriously think about getting a truck like that!
Glad you are feeling better.

Tracie~My Petite Maison

It's all beautiful here, Fifi. I'm sorry to hear you've been sick but happy you're better. I have had the virus for two weeks now and just starting to feel better (scared to say since I said it before and had a huge relapse). I swear one of the reasons why I'm better is because I came by here yesterday and saw your (well, Dan's ;) amazing photos from the book. Thanks for giving me that lift of wanting to get up and move again and make things pretty and just want to create a happy/pretty environment again.

You're a doll in that truck!

I've been so out of touch and I'm wondering when you'll be in No. California.
Love you, Tracie

Barbara Jacksier

Glad you're feeling better mon petit chou. The slide show is exquisite.


Good Morning Fifi,

I hope that you are well soon. I have just ordered my copy of your new book and I can hardly wait for it to arrive! There is nothing like slowly turning the pages of a beautiful book and savoring every photo. You always do such a beautiful job. I hope one day that you can come to my show in California. Would love to meet you in person.


Remnants of the Past Vintage Show


I'm so glad you're feeling better. I can't wait to see your book! I'm wondering if you have any ideas for inexpensive vintage looking dresses. I love all the sweet tops you wear. I posted recently about my daughter looking for a dress for a wedding she will be in this summer. We're searching the internet and little shops, but you have such a great eye for everything, that I thought you might have a few tips on finding something.
Stay well dear lady!

Lovely truck. I wish I had that one. Love your photos. =)
