I hope that all of my American friends enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend~perhaps an extra day off from work and time with your families:-). Speaking of...........another week of probably not much in the way of blogging or Shabbyfufu Website work, although I did just go shopping and found all sorts of fabulous things to add to the various boutiques.
The Fufu family is going to be off on a trip to Europe on Friday, and I have lots to do to get ready. This will be mostly a family trip (maybe SOME antiquing mixed in, all depending)....we are doing a Mediterranean cruise. I promise to share some photos when I get back if you would like to see them.
Remember the post about the Romantic Country Magazine photo shoot at my home? I got the word from "the boss" (aka Fifi:-) that it will be in this upcoming issue, which may hit the newstands while I am away. Although I can't show any photos of the shoot itself, here are a couple that I took with my camera~and I think that these are "safe"!
Fifi and her equally sweet and beautiful sister Sylvie in the kitchen cutting flowers for the shoot. We used pale pink roses and soft blue hydrangeas mixed together. Here is a tip for keeping your arrangements fresh that Fifi suggested; take off all of the leaves, yes...ALL of them. This will keep any from clouding the water, and it DOES work!
The family room wasn't used in the shoot, but was used for Dan Mayer's camera equipment and suitcases filled with Fifi's props. A great learning experience to see how these pros work so well together.
A close up of the beautiful pink roses. They came from Whole Foods, where you can find some of the BEST florals!
Fifi's sister Sylvie made this journal for me with hand embroidery on French linen. Isn't it Gorgeous?!
Well that's about it for now.......laundry and packing are calling my name. Will talk to you soon!
Oh......before I forget, thank you to my sweet friend Siobahn from the beautiful Vintage Mosaic Boutique for this award:-). I am not the best at passing the awards along, but would have to say that it should go right back to Siobahn and so many of my dear blogging friends as well! Alrighty then.........talk soon~XOXOXO~ Janet
