Romantic Prairie Style~Fifi O'Neill


Fifi O'Neill just revealed the book cover for her new book, Romantic Prairie Style!

Fifi, not only wrote the book, but was also the stylist!

All the photography in the book is by Mark Lohman.

I can hardly wait to get the book!
The book is now available on Amazon for pre-order.


It is still very hard for me to believe, but that is my dining room in the above photograph!
Thank you Fifi for featuring my home in your book, I am truly honored!

Here are a few of the talented girls you will find featured in Fifi's new book!
Congratulations to everyone!

Thank you Fifi and Mark!

Hi Maria,
I am so happy for Fifi that she's announced her book and shown us the cover.

If I didn't know of Fifi (don't know how that could be possible ;) I would definitely pick up the book because of that beautiful cover. Your room really speaks to my French loving heart. It's perfect. I can't wait to see the rest & hope to see you at one of the book signings up this way!

layers of memory said...

We grow great by dreams. All big men were dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winters evenings. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them, nurse them trough bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams all come true.
(Woodrow Wilson)

Maria so pleased to hear your dreams are coming true!!! what comes from the heart goes to the heart.....what a shame we have to wait till next year to get this gorgeous book.....
