ROMANTIC PRAIRIE STYLE has been doing so well that the book sold out. Needless to say that I am thrilled and can't THANK YOU enough (each and everyone) for being so generous in parting with your hard-earned money and for all your lovely posts, comments and giveaways, all of which have contributed to the spectacular success of the book. Without you there would not be such an incredible outcome. So, my darling friends, my kitties and I say MERCI BEAUCOUP!!
Now, not to worry, a second run is being printed as we speak and more books will be available in June.
ROMANTIC PRAIRIE STYLE has also started to hit the media and, as I get press clippings, I will keep you in the loop.
Here are a couple from the British press.
The first one is from
Country Homes & Interiors,
This one is from the
(London's leading newspaper)
Notice how "PRAIRIE STYLE" is now a design trend.......how cool is that!
Last Saturday, I had my very first book signing here in Sarasota at the very beautiful
POSH ON PALM
my friends Mark and Susie Holt's gorgeous shop
Take a tour of POSH ON PALM and you will understand the dreaminess of it.......
Mark and Susie went all out providing delicious finger foods and wine. The turn out exceeded our expectations.
I had the time of my life as I finally had a chance to meet some lovely girls with whom I had been communicating but never got together with because of distance. Yet, THEY found the time to come from every corner of the State.
I wish I had photos of all of them but I don't. Sorry ladies.
THANK YOU to everyone for making the evening such a treat and to MARK AND SUSIE for making it memorable.
Speaking of loveliness,have you seen..
Great spring table settings.....
My sweet friend
has an incredible talent for styling and photography. All you have to do is to take a look at her blog and you will see it for yourself.
About 6 weeks ago I went to Tausha's house with my other lovely friend, KIM.
TAUSHA lives a long way from me so she and her husband sent a limo to pick me up! Well, if I could get that kind of treatment for all photo shoots it would be heaven!
This looooooong pink limo picked me up in front of my tiny cottage (believe me, all the neighbors came out to see what was going on in spite of the fact that it was only 7:00 AM!)
Then we drove to Lakeland to pick up Kim on the way up. You can see how long the limo was compare to the neighbor's house......
If you need a limo service and wanted to be treated like a celebrity make sure to call

And Tausha made it to the book signing as well!
She came wearing a very pretty blouse and cool bag (and of course jeans and boots!) I was admiring her top unaware that she had brought me one (it was still wrapped up and I didn't discover it until I opened her gift at home. I could not wait to put it on.........
Another very gifted lady is my friend LAURA
who also took the time to come to the book signing though she lives in central Florida
Laura came with her sweet mom(middle) and her beautiful daughter (left) To the right is another friend of mine Michelle Mancini who looks after Posh on Palm when Mark and Susie take a much needed day off.
In about 3 weeks I will be off to begin shooting for book #2. I hope it will end up being as successful as book #1 but something tells me you will make it so!
THANK YOU for making my dreams come through!
I will leave you now with a dreamy photo of a dreamy bed that I hope will help YOU have the dreamiest dreams..........
(Sorry but I don't know who the photographer is. One thing for sure: he or she is very very skilled!)
Tonight is the end of my triple giveaway. Check for winners in the next few days.
