Fifi's book signing at Posh on Palm...for those who dream...

Please read this carefully.
If there is a heaven on earth & there are angels &   fairies well then... Fifi is the French fairy/angel & Posh on Palm is her magical heavenly  garden.
I am very excited to share with you my special day at Fifi's book signing in Sarasota. I spent a beautiful day with my daughter & mom.
Susie the shop owner was kind enough to let me take pictures of her amazing shop & let me blog & share with you all.. so please do not copy the pictures.. enjoy... send some friends over & let me know what you think.
Fifi's book is a best seller you must treat your self to having one.. and you must treat yourself to a visit to Posh On Palm here in Florida.
Thank you Fifi for all your love & inspiration..Thank you for changing my life.. continue to sprinkle all your magical French fairy dust on us all.
Enjoy my pictures..... I did the best with my little Sony camera & my spelling is not the best at times but you will be able to dream on..Enjoy! xo Laura
we're here!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fifi signing my book.
the fabulous & talented Michele.. this lady is great! She  works at the store & is the best. She knew who we were as soon as we walked in & took the best care of everyone.
Special Susie..the woman who owns this amazing store & has the heavenly gift to create all the magic in the store with her husband Mark ( sorry did not get a picture of him) be sure to pay her a visit.
Beautiful Fifi listening...
take a seat, have a cup of tea or coffee & enjoy what I have posted for your eyes..
time to sweet life is here...
behind several beautiful antique doors with tattered lace awaits a room that is like a dream. 
my daughter Olivia. my mom Edie & the fabulous  Michele
the lovely Tausha who I adore..has a very special blog called Simply me.. if any one gets Rachael Ashwels philosophy &  way of decorating listen up... this girl does like no one I have seen.  Oh yes that bag..we know we want one too!
one of my favorite things..
Susie's displays &  merchandise is like no one.. her exquisite taste & ideas should be in a movie or book I say!
never want to leave this dreamy room.
that lamp has a new home...
nothing like crusty blingy  love..
Mark completely built this armoire from scratch. It is incredible I would love this piece. I am dreaming about it tonight & tomorrow...
my mom couldn't stop thinking about that tattered  lamp all the way home..I said " mom call up & buy it we will go back next week , it will be beautiful in your home"...she did but said my step dad will ask her when she is getting a shade for it.. don't you love it!
this is one of several heavenly rooms...dream on little fairies..
I think it is time to shop some more...
are you still dreaming?
did you remember to look up & trust today?
well did you order or pick up you copy yet? You better!
mom bought this lamp.another shade my step will be trying to figure out what happened to. Oh we love it!
the beautiful Fifi....aka the French fairy signing &  another Romantic Prairie Style book..with some of  her sweet friends..

the party is over... the party is never over in my book....but it time to hang your party dress up & go to bed now dream girls
oh I think i will take a rest in the lovely french chair... it's been a long day for my precious mom.

Thanks for your visit is a big kiss for you & a big goodbye to Sarasota.... it was a beautiful day. I think we have something special going on down here in the Sunshine state. Must be Fifi's fairy/angel dust.... xo Laura
P.S. I would love to hear from you & appreciate all your comments.

I have really enjoyed your post today. The Posh of Palm shop is a dream place. I would love to visit there someday. Thanks for all the lovely photos.

Hi Laura,

Thank you for the lovely blog comment and this post is making my mouth hang open with drool dripping....can you see?!!

I adore that French girl...she really sprinkles magic dust on everything that she touches. I was hoping to make it over to Sarasota for the signing, but it's a longgg drive from where I am (Miami) and other things were happening here in daily life.

I've met Suzie and Mark in the past and would love to actually see that shop in person, they both have such a vision for all things romantic!

Oh Laura,
This is so beautiful, your post with Fifi, your family and Tausha too. Thank you for emailing me to let me know.

I can tell you're over the Moon, as I would be, sweet soul! What a wonderful day for you and all the beauty and sharing such sweetness w/Fifi.

You know, I'm there with you in my heart more than I can say. So happy, happy, happy for you!!

Did I walk right by you without being so kind as to introduce myself. I was there too. It was a wonderfully decadent evening that I blogged about too.
Maybe we will run into each other there again sometime.

I also love this Shop where you attended the book signing and Suzie's vignettes are to die for! *swooning* I could spend all day in a Shop like this... and meeting Fifi would be a Joy, she is such a Treasure! Lucky Girl you are!!!

I just came over from Becky's blog, One Shabby Old House, after she emailed me that you too had been at Posh and Palm and Fifi's book signing on Saturday. I probably live closer than either of you gals and I missed it due to not knowing about it until early in the week and having commitments that took us in the opposite direction from Sarasota at the same time! So I loved seeing all your photos. My hubby and I have met and talked personally with Susie and Mark, such a gracious, warm couple. While we have not been at Posh and Palm yet, we had been to their other shops and are thrilled with this beautiful new shop in Sarasota. BTW, I had seen on Becky's blog, I think, the lamp you mom bought, tell her she saved me some money, lol. I too loved it. Your step dads comment was too funny, but sounds like something my hubby might say, lol. Thank you again for showing Fifi's book signing and Mark and Susie's elegant shop.
