239 Romantic Prairie Style Giveaway!

I am over the moon excited today! Fifi O’Neill has generously agreed to give away one copy of her new book, Romantic Prairie Style, to one of my lucky readers for our 3rd and final Giveaway here at TOPC. And are you ready for the BEST part? Fifi is going to personally sign it!

Romantic Prairie Style

I am wholeheartedly grateful to Fifi. She is one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I have had the opportunity to meet on several different occasions. When you visit her blog, right away you can tell she has a warm, genuine heart, but meeting her in person simply takes ones breath away…

When Fifi contacted me to have our house featured in her book, I was delighted that she felt our little Cottage8 had the right look to grace the pages of her new book. You may remember some of the wild n’ crazy behind-the-scene images from the photo shoot when Fifi was here with her crew last year. Click here for a fun look back.

I know it’s a teaser, but here are just a few of the photos of our home that are featured in Romantic Prairie Style. All photos courtesy of Mark Lohman.

p8  p16 

p20 p21

There are many inspiring photographs from some incredible homes collected in this book. One can pour over the photography and beautiful writing for hours upon hours. I am honored to be amongst a talented bunch of homeowners, all with the same shared passion: (in order of appearance) Anne Marie, Angela Reed, Joy Waltmire, Carol Spinski, Caroline Verschoor, Christian McCord, Andrea Dickersons, Tracey Leber, Fifi O’Neill, Lisa Adkins, Maria Carr and Michelle McCauley.

To enter to win a signed copy of Romantic Prairie Style, simply do the following:

1. Leave a comment here on my blog.

2. Leave a comment on Fifi’s blog

3. Extra credit question: If you could go on a road trip with one person (dead or alive), who would you choose and where would you go?

This giveaway ends on Friday, April 29th. Lucky winner to be announced here on my blog.

  2. What a neat giveaway! I've been drooling over this book for some time. Love Fifi's blog and style as well as yours. If I were to go on a road trip with anyone it would be to Paris with Ina Garten. We'd stay in her and Jeffrey's apt there and wander the markets looking for beautiful foods to have a Seine-side picnic before exploring the wonderful architecture of the city of lights.

  17. I am a follower of your blog and Fifi's blog ... Always find the perfection in the charming style and inspiration equally as inviting on both blog..

My mother has been gone for several years but I would so love one more chance to go on a road trip and share another precious moment with her... Since Mother and myself were and are very simple people I would just be more thankful and over the moon to sit beside water and ask her questions I wish I would have ask and just share those moments that were so very precious.....

  71. Prairie Style to me means 'Mim's House'. My Mim and Pip lived on, and worked, a farm, and the rustic simplicity with flare is just what reminds me of them and of my good times on the farm as a child. I love this look!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Jennifer,
    I would love to win Fifi's book. I have long admired her and her blog. I think your and her blogs were among the first blogs I read when I discovered the blogworld!
    I would love to take a trip to Paris with my Mom and tuck my daughter in my pocket just to complete the journey. We'd take a boat load of cash, a picnic and head directly to the Marche au Puce!!
    There isn't too much else that can top a good look at all the wonderful treasures there! Of course we'd have to go to all the touristy places, too. I'd arrive home with some glorious "stuff" to transform my house into a dream cottage.
    Merci Beaucoup pour la chance de faire le voyage de ma reves!!
    A Bientot!
    Sandy

  73. I also tried to leave a comment on Fifi's blog but couldnot find the comments link!

  77. Just love your home and congrats that it was featured in Fifi's book. It's always so surreal when you see your photos in a book/magazine. Last year I was lucky as well when I was the big feature studio in Cloth Paper Scissors Winter Studios magazine and when the magazine came it the mail...it looked even grander than the original pictures did. Would love to win an autographed copy...woo hoo

  89. For the road trip I'd love to go with comedian Eddie Izzard. Not only does his knowledge amaze me and his humor crack me up but he's also quite proficient when it comes to speaking French. Which works out well since I'd love for that road trip to be all over the countryside of France.

  128. what an impressive home you have. i hadn't seen pictures of the kitchen and am amazed at what you did to hide the fridge. i am adding my name to the list of hopefuls for Fifi's book. I am also a fan and have followed both of you for quite some time now and often watch her videos.

    And as for travelling and with who:

    I have always wanted to visit Poland & since travelling usually implies sharing a room, I would chose my best friend Maria Cecilia of http://www.casadulcehogar.blogspot.com whom i sure you must know by now.

    Thank you for this kind giveaway.

  135. Congratulations on the feature of your home in Fifi's book! How proud you must be! (And yes, it's okay to be proud of all the hard work you've done.) Now, if I could take a road trip with anybody, it would be my old college roommate. She has three small children and lives 2000 miles away. I miss her and it would be like old times roadtripping it with her!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Thank you Jennifer (and Fifi) for this lovely giveaway! If I'm not lucky enough to win, I'm definitely giving myself this book for Mother's Day! :) As for a roadtrip...I would honestly just want to take one with a few of my oldest girlfriends.

  146. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this book signed by Fifi - what a treasure!
    I discovered this site by accident about 3 weeks ago, and have already looked at all of the featured cottages by month and year. I've also told several friends and family members about the site and needless to say, I'm hooked in a very good way (-:
    If I could go on a roadtrip with anyone it would be Mike (and Frank) from "American Pickers" because what a fun time that would be!!

  152. Your blog is so inspiring, Jennifer. I love your enthusiasm and can-do attitude. It really empowers me to pick up the cordless drill (or whatever!) and dig right in to all the things I dream about creating at my cottage-by-the-creek. Congratulations on being featured in Fifi's book. Your work is beautiful!

  153. I love roadtrips and if dreams came true, I'd take one with my late husband who passed away 6 years ago. He was only 46 and we were true kindred spirits. I'd drive to Prince Edward Island in early summer when the peonies are in bloom. I'd ride bikes along the coast and eat lobster. It's fun to dream, eh?

  154. Hi Jennifer! Just posted on Fifi's blog, I already follow and LOVE her blog. She really seems like such a warm, sweet person. I'd LOVE to win her beautiful book.
    If there was anyone I could go on a road trip with (I'm excluding my Husband because we can do that anyway) I would definitley choose my late Grandmother, Fathe. She is the person that inspired my passion for creativity and love for old things both by her strong influence on me as a child and even today as I enjoy owning her old things. She went home to the Lord when I was only 9 and I miss her so much more today. When she took me with her to the "Hunt Shop" it wasn't until my own thrift store junkin' that I realized that's where we were "hunting". I remember her checking the backs of old plates and doll heads. She owned her own interior design store in Los Angeles as a young woman. She even designed some movie sets. I own several of her own oil paintings, antique furniture pieces, vintage jewelry and dolls today. Oh, how I would LOVE to take a road trip with her today as an adult. Oh, the stories I would hear! I would hang on every word.
    Have a blessed Easter weekend chickie!

  157. My road trip would involve a trip across the pond first. I would take my hubby of 40 years back to Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire in England to travel the backroads we often traveled when we lived there from 1971-74. Then we would venture north to revisit Edinburgh.

  171. I remember your post about your kitchen island. Your house is beautiful! I'd go on the road trip with my husband. We have the best times of our lives on our road trips. We talk, take pictures, eat crap, sing to music and speed like demons into the sunset. Have a great Easter!

  172. Oh, yeah, Where would I go? To the southern US. I'd like to see Georgia, and Guy wants to go to Memphis, for the music scene. We might just go.

    I took a leap over to Fif's blog, and saw Posh on Palm. What a gorgeous store!

  174. Jennifer - I have been a lurker on your blog for a long time. You were actually my inspiration for my LRoom redo. I cant capture your true style, but adapted to fit our needs.
    I would love to be entered in the drawing for the book. I will now head over to Fifi's to comment and check out her page as well.
    Thanks for all you do.

    Extra credit - If I could road trip with anyone dead or alive who and where? I would choose my husband and we would go to the Southern USA for the longest yard sale. Would love to attend that sometime. Why? Well we have such a great time "thrifting" and adapting our prizes to our home and lifestyle. He is the BEST guy to go thrifting with ever!!!

  177. Hi Jennifer! I would love to take a road trip with my very best friend who shares all the same interests as me. Sedona, AZ and The Grand Canyon would be our our destination!! I'm excited just thinking about that--LOL. I would love to have an autographed copy of Fifi's book. She's the "bomb"...Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway. You're the best!

  178. Jennifer what a lovely post and a giveaway too! Fifi is truly fabulous I follow her blog. If I could go on a road trip with anyone it would be my sweet husband. He is my best friend and our trips together are always fabulous. I'm very fortunate to have seen many parts of the world. But as long as we're together I'd go anywhere. I think the next trip might be to Vermont in the fall.
    I'm so sorry it's been a while since I stopped by for a visit. I always enjoy my time at your lovely blog. Big Hugs!

    Oh I almost forgot, I'm having a giveaway too you could win a gorgeous dress. I hope you'll stop by Katherines Corner for a visit.

  179. Jennifer, what a great giveaway, looks like I'm not the only one who agrees! You're house is so lovely and your accomplishments so inspiring! I would love to be entered!
    We're at the treshold of our remodeling journey and I've been soaking up all the inspiration I can!
    Thanks so much for your sweet words about my chair re-upholstery project! I'm so glad I posted it because it's a pretty big job for me and I'm needing all the encouragement that I can get. I really appreciate it, you're so sweet!
    I would go and a road trip with my husband, he's my best friend!

    If I were to take a trip with one person, despite many great choices, I would take my sweet hubby...it would be a lot more fun to travel with him than someone I barely know.

    Thanks for offering this great giveaway!

  183. I am in love! With your blog and Fifi's new book! We are in the middle of selling our home and your cottage has inspired me to but a house I can truly create my little cottage, one with ton's of lavender plants and peonies and lilacs- the home my kids will grow up in. Something that says I love my home when I open the door- right now I say, just not right. Although my style is evolving and I am learning with each blog, each magazine and book I read- so I would adore a copy!

  184. Good Morning! Oh I would LOVE the opportunity to win this lovely book..it would be perfect here at our farmhouse in the country. If I could go shopping with someone special anywhere in the world it would be my sister who I only found out about in 91. She's my inspiration. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  188. Everything about the rooms speaks of exquisite taste and style. If I could go on a road trip with anyone in the world it would be with my husband and children because family is everything to me.

  189. Oh, please enter me in the drawing. I've been seeing this book several places today and have thought that looks like a great book. I'll be sure and leave a comment on Fifi's blog, too. If I could go on a road trip with anyone it would be my BFF, Liz, aka The Queen, who went home to be with the Lord last July. We would go on the 100 mile yard sale, riding in a limosine, wearing great big hats and drinking big tall lemonades. That was always on our bucket list to go to yard sales in style after we got our kids raised and had plenty of time. Don't ever waste a minute! Live life as if there were no tomorrow.

  191. I would take my sister (who lives in Boston, while I am in ATL) and we would head of to Jackson Hole, WY. Have always wanted to visit that beautiful spot. I don't know if it can live up to the amazing idea I have of it in my head, but I have a feeling that it would exceed my expectations!!
