**Fifi O'Neill** ShoPs "ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!" Booth @ Na-Da Farm SaLe!*!*!

ONE of the main draws/perks of the Na-Da Farm SaLe last weekend was that Fifi O'Neill, Editor of Romantic Country Magazine, and Author of her New Book ~ Romantic Prairie Style  - was going to be at this Event!*!*!  I was just thrilled on SATURDAY, when Fifi ShoPPed My SHaBBies!!!  

 Here I am with "Fifi" in my ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! booth...  Fifi purchased a handful of "vintage millinery" along with the millinery on her wrist...



 I now have Fifi's New Book ~ Romantic Prairie Style, displayed in a special vignette at home...
   I splurged a month ago and bought the French Basket/Lavender from Maria at Dreamy Whites!*!*!




 Fifi's personalized signature...



Fifi looked like an angel on book signing night...




 This was the area where Fifi would be signing her books - early-on...  The cowboy boots with flowers seem to be her signature look...



 ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! & Fifi O'Neill...



Fifi wore "The Sweetest" Outfits!!!  I don't know how she does it ~ while on the road ~  all the right detailed adornments...  It was a pleasure meeting her!*!*!
