A Fifi Flowers Original

IMG_5098

A few months ago, I was fortunate to win a giveaway from Fifi Flowers, a wonderful artist who does some amazing paintings. I had admired her work and when I won her giveaway, I was really excited. The prize was any photo that I wanted to send her, she would turn into note cards. So, I chose my very colorful lime green and black laundry room. I got the note cards and honestly, I haven’t used them, cause I hated to give them away! But, now I can actually use them.

Fifi really made my day recently by sending me a note that she was going to send me the original 5x7 painting for me to have for my very own! I got it in the mail and now all I have to do is find the perfect frame for it and it will be displayed in it’s rightful place….the laundry room.

If you haven’t seen my laundry room before, click on that link. It’s one of my favorite spots in the house. Here’s the pic that I sent Fifi, isn’t her drawing wonderful?

I hope you’ll go over and check out Fifi’s Etsy shop. These would make a very memorable gift for someone special. She can do anything you’d like from an original painting to notecards. All you have to do is send her an online pic and you can get your very own room forever remembered. Fifi-fied! Isn’t it adorable?!

I''m out at the yardsales this morning. And I found something really, really neat on Friday that I can't wait to show you. Now, just where in the world am I gonna put it?

The hubby and I are hitting our local Jazz Fest on Sunday afternoon/evening (can't wait!), but I'll get the party post up too, so see you Sunday evening for Today's Thrifty Treasures!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the laundry room-ADORABLE!!! I have been checking your blog for a couple of months now-on our family blog- and just recently started a new blog www.itssoverycheri.blogspot.com One of my very best friends, Vonda sent me an e-mail about checking out your blog-well I already do. I couldn't believe-or should I say I shouldn't have been surprised that you and Vonda were friends. I am sure we would make true decorating and frugile shopping buddies. Love your blog.

Fifi, really knows her stuff and she captured your room perfectly and with such style, too. That was so sweet of her to send you the original painting. Your laundry room is really art inspiring! ~ Robyn

The note cards are just perfect and she did capture the look of your room so very whimsically. Love it. I am so glad you're getting the original. I wouldn't want to send the note cards either, but if you have the original then you will always have the treasure. Your laundry room is just so fabulous, I love it every time I see it. Hugs, Marty

Fifi is so fabulous! I love her art. I won Julia's giveaway for a house portrait by Fifi. She has it finished and it is wonderful. It even includes Molly! I can't wait to see it in real life.

We're on our way to the lake, this morning. Looks like Missouri is in for more rain. Everything is so lush and green and beautiful. Would love to have just a little sunshine, while we're at the lake, though.

The Jazz Fest sounds great!!

Hey Rho~
Along with the one Fifi did for Kim, this is my favorite! Do you think it is the fact that "my" bunny is in a lime green room?? LOL

I just saw your corner cab that you did. Love it!
