Dearest Fifi,

nikkicrumpet said...

I'd for sure take a seat on the patio...it looks lovely.
I finally sent off one of my "Fifi master bedroom post cards" It was so painful...it was like sending off one of my children. But I sent it to my best friend with a thank you gift...She loved the ones I had framed of the bicycles...and after being a guest in my house I thought she might like one of the master bedroom. I hope she takes good care of it. Because I'm totally hoarding the rest!

This looks like a fabulous place, Fifi! I love anywhere I can sit outside to eat or drink (we can only do that 4 months out of the year here). The inside isn't too shabby either!
