Guess Who Came To Visit?

The wonderful Fifi O'Neill, editor of Romantic Country magazine and Mark her photographer extraordinaire....came to visit me this past Saturday...

and what an absolute treat it was! Fifi has an upcoming book {due out in Spring 2011} and she came to photograph my lil' old farmhouse for the book....can you say WOW! Mark and Fifi were so much fun to be with...Mark with his wonderful sense of humor...and Fifi with her amazing talent for styling . It was a pleasure to watch them work...and to say it was an honor would be an understatement...it was a truly magical experience. The photo above is of Fifi with our geese...Annabelle and Genevieve...they sure took a liking to her.

And on another note....we're havin' a sale in the shop....more than a dozen items have been marked down by 30% or more...Happy Summer!
