Can't wait to see it from your eyes!

La Belette Rouge said...

That book looks gorgeous. Love her bold design style.

mannequin said...

As do I; smashing decor!
And another thing, is that her wickedly wild and funky hair or is that a hat, headband or what?

MIMILEE said...

Another great painting, fifi! Here's hoping you get the book for your Birthday!

I hang on to my design magazines too and it is getting out of hand around here! I saw on Cote de Texas that you do the same thing....but I enjoy picking up an old magazine and flipping through it again and again! But I really do need to weed them out.....they have become a FIRE HAZARD for goodness sake!

That Girl Designs said...

Oh yes, Dorothy was so fabulous. I've had my eye on this book for a long time. Your paintings are wonderful as usual!

Lesley Denford said...

I love the pic of Dorothy Draper! I used to wear my hair like that in high school, a whole bunch of little spiky hair-nubbins on top of my head. I can't believe that someone so stylish thought of that YEARS before me, and I didn't even know! :)

Shelia said...

Morning, Your Fifiness! Love the info about the Dot! Your painting is wonderful as always!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

You do Dorothy Draper proud...I bet she'd have been so tickled to see your interpretation!

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

What a delicious looking book. I hope someone sees your wish list. :) I had to really look to see two paintings. One looked like it was from the book. Very nice paintings. I read about her some years ago in a magazine. I tossed it when we moved. Drats!
I look forward to seeing Giverny tomorrow. I would LOVE to go visit in person. My wish list. :))

Paris Atelier said...

Hi Fifi! Isn't Draper a marvel and so ahead of her time! I have that book & I have to say it's a must for anybody who loves design and decor. Especially you, my dear Fifi, who loves Pink so much, she was a wonder in her time, a true legacy! I can't wait to France through your eyes (you know I love France)! Bon soir!
