Along with this painting... YESSSSSSSSSSS... Deborah Lloyd of Kate Spade is the owner of some of my paintings... I sooooooo hope she ENJOYS them! Do you have a chair that you'd like to see in my collection? Looking for TWO chairs to complete the collection! Prizes to be won... who doesn't love prizes! PLEASE SEND YOUR ENTRIES BY SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22 @ noon EST... so people can VOTE on Monday... ooooh FUN!

Sooooooooooo... after telling or sending emails and links to your chair selection... head over to Hooked on Houses to see her FAB Dutch Door and if that is not enough... The Inspired Room and her Beautiful Life Theme.

Don't forget tomorrow we travel to beautiful scenery!

Dear Fifi:

The security is very bad here so I was able to commandeer my thera...I mean, my friend's computer so I could check in with you! I thought this was going to be a lovely get away but they have completely over booked my schedule with these ridiculous meetings where I am supposed to SHARE things. Good lord. If they only knew what I really wanted to share they would throw my perfectly manicured self right out of here. Oh....I think I just had a brilliant idea! I love a little light bulb moment, don't you, Fifi?! And one more thing, the outfits these women wear are horrendous. I am horrified to stand too close to any of them for fear their clothing might be contagious!

Sincerely,

Petunia whose hair has only been on fire once!

Miss Kris said...

Hi Fifi!

Also, glad you are feeling better & have a great weekend Fifi!!!

I love chairs to paintings too. I have been doing a series of them too. Will have to check out some that you might like.
Now I want to know how they did that hair burning. OUCH.

I am going to love chair series! Very pretty, Ms. Fifi! Hope all is well :) Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Meredith said...

I think I first saw your paintings on Anna Spiro's blog. Sublime! I would love to send you an idea for a chair, but mine are covered in breakfast cereal with school bags hanging off the back of them - inspiring, non? Would it be impossible to paint a Louis Ghost chair though?

Bonnie said...

Hi Fifi! I am so excited! I have a few chairs that that I'd like to submit for the chair series. You can go to....

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

can't wait to see your chair collection complete. I don't have any furniture at the moment so I can't send you a photo of a chair.

Rue said...

Hi Fifi :)

I'm sorry I'm late for hooked on Fridays, but see what happens.... I'm being punished by not getting here in time to put my name in for your giveaway :(

Beautiful paintings.... I'm off to vote, if I'm not too late....

hugs,
rue
