Fifi and Mark's visit...


Good morning!  I wanted to share a bit about the wonderful experience I had with Fifi and Mark coming to my home this past Monday.  Even though this was the second time they have been to my house, I was still a bit nervous...but as soon as the day was under way, I quickly got over my nerves and started having fun!  That's the best part about working with these two amazingly talented people...


...they are truly a joy to work with...and just so much fun!!!  It made all of the work of cleaning and prepping so worth it! :)

Here is a cute photo of Fifi...



As I mentioned before, they shot my house for Jeanne d' Arc Living magazine...as well as a few other publications {more on that later}, so it was a very busy day!  I loved being a part of the whole process and found it so interesting to observe Mark's  incredible photography skills and to see how good Fifi is at making sure we got just the right shot!!  Watching Mark work makes me want to try harder at improving my photography skills...something I have been getting a little lazy with...I really do love the art of photography!

All in all, I feel truly blessed to have had Fifi and Mark come to my home and it is a day I will always remember!



The day started just before 10 am, but I had been up since 5:30 with nervous energy, so I snapped a few photos before Fifi and Mark arrived...it's not often my whole house is clean all at once :))



This old farm table is one I bought from the flea market and painted, using it to replace the smaller table we had been using as a desk in our bedroom...I kept the accessories simple so that there was still plenty of work surface available for when my husband needs to do a little computer work from home.









Fifi and Mark will be at the Na-Da Farm Barn Sale this Friday and Saturday to sign their first book together, Romantic Prairie Style...



I myself can't wait to go!!!  I will also be taking Jeanne's art class on Saturday afternoon at the sale, so I will be sure and take some pictures to share of everything going on...

I hope you all have a great weekend!
