Time for a sleep over & a magazine shoot!

Fifi's beautiful cottage and garden gate


I'm so excited, Saturday evening I'm going to my girlfriend's house (we've known one another since we were in 10th grade!) and spending the night! Her name just happens to be Dawn too and we couldn't be more opposite. We've always enjoyed each other's company and I'm really looking forward to spending some girl time with her!!


Then, Sunday morning she and I are heading to the airport to pick up Fifi of Chez Fifi!!! Fifi's flying in to do a shoot at a friend and former customer of mine's home near where I live. It's so amazing how this whole magazine world works. They do everything so far in advance!!


We're hoping to have Sunday brunch together and then take her to her hotel in Atlanta Sunday afternoon. Monday morning I've got to meet Fifi and the photographer at the interstate for them to follow me to Jean's house. It really should be a fun day. I can't wait to see Fifi style the room for the photographs and watch the photographer do her job as well. Jean's making homemade chicken salad croissant sandwiches for everyone and I'm bringing old fashioned peach cobbler! Be sure to look for Jean's home in the January issue of Country Sampler magazine.


I'm not going to get many creative things accomplished this weekend but will be back at it after Monday. I'm really excited about meeting Fifi and being able to be there with Jean. Fifi freelances for many magazines writing articles and styling the photographs, but she also is the editor of Romantic Country magazine! My little silver sugar dish and urn pincushions are in the current issue! Too unbelievable.....



ps. If you will, please say a little prayer for Fifi as she has been quite sick due to her very busy schedule. She went to the doctor yesterday to get a big ol' shot and is on the mend but I do pray that she is feeling wonderful by the time she has to fly out Sunday morning ~


Wishing you a wonderful weekend!


xxoo, Dawn

I'm afraid Fifi is going to find herself on a stretcher headed to a hospital if her schedule does not ease up soon! I don't know how the woman does it! But I'm so glad for you. I'd love to meet her. She is so talented and seems so fun. Love what she can for a room! You girls have a wonderful time and then come tell us all about it.
