Molly’s House

A few weeks ago, Julia of Hooked on Houses presented the giveaway of a House Portrait, painted by fabulous artist Fifi of Fifi Flowers Design. I was absolutely thrilled, when I won this wonderful giveaway. Fifi and I corresponded through e-mail. I sent a photo of our home and one of Molly. After all, this is Molly’s house!

I’m adding this post to Julia’s Hooked on Fridays; because Fifi’s painting of Molly’s House made me so very happy!! Visit Julia’s, every Friday, for more Hooked on Friday posts.

House June 07A

Because we were spending several days at the lake, last week, we had our mail stopped. J picked up the mail, Monday morning. There, in the stack, was a large manila envelope from California. I could hardly wait to open it. Inside was Fifi’s beautiful painting of Molly’s House!

I’ve been in the process of “building” the picture wall, beside the pantry door, for awhile. I’ve tried several ideas. I knew Molly’s House would be perfect on this wall. I did a little rearrange of the prints, replacing a print of Charleston’s (SC) Rainbow Row, with Molly’s House. I placed the Charleston print below a poster, from Missouri’s Saint James Winery, we bought several years ago. The poster is a former St James Winery label.

Fifi’s painting is at home, in this setting. I’m looking for something to hang under the green matted print, on the opposite side of the door.

Thank you Fifi! And thanks to Julia!

A little silk floral arrangement, I put together yesterday, is a hint of the tablescape, I’m working on for an upcoming post.


This is J’s project. The desk was purchased during the 1970’s. It was once used in a school. When we acquired it, the oak finish had been altered, with an antiquing kit, popular during the 70’s. J is in the midst of sanding and preparing it for painting. We will have the painting done at a local car body shop, where we had a headboard painted, last year. When the desk is finished, it will be moved to the hearth room.
