She's a Real Life Southern Lady



May I introduce to you Miss Nancy, over at Southern Lady ~ Nancy. Nancy is a real life Southern lady; she loves the Lord, she loves her family, and she loves her home. That's Miss Nancy in the first photo with her husband. Those are her handsome sons in the photo above.

Well, in addition to her wonderful blog, Miss Nancy has an Etsy Shop and she sells darling tassels...I 'm so excited! The other day I received my brand new darling rooster tassel...isn't it cute? It's just perfect to hang here at "The Roost." Thank you so much Miss Nancy!

Look at my new rooster...I asked Nancy to add my favorite ribbon--black & white gingham. Now y'all, I name everything, so I've decided to name this girl "Miss Nancy."

Here are some of the other tassels she has made...
A beautiful flower tassel...Hmmm, maybe for my bedroom.

This is one of her pear tassels...This one is my second favorite.


Ooh, I know someone (Miss Melissa) who bought one of these gorgeous fleur de lis tassels...
Check out this stinkin' cute birdhouse tassel...

This would make a great Christmas gift--Santa on a tassel!

That's not all she makes...look at her and her handsome hubby in the beautiful frame she embellished with ribbon and a jewel...
I just love to visit with Nancy, she has the most beautiful home...


Her front porch...Miss Janice loves a covered porch with wicker rockers!


Beautifully decorated front entrance...such a warm welcome for her guests!

How cute is this wreath with the dotted initial...



I just love this basket and arrangement...
Let's go inside and take a peek...
Awesome kitchen...I love the wall color, the cabinets, the countertops, the lamp chain covers, and all the decor.

Simple dish towels...love the colors and the layering Miss Nancy!

How darling is the little desk vignette...Look at the tassel, love that rooster, the wall treament, the damask file folders, the inititals, and the polka dot frame. Perfect, just perfect!


Look at the dining table, obviously ready for a special event...what a gorgeous chandelier!
Ahem...can you believe her master bedroom...right out of a magazine!She has a beautiful color combination in her master bath!

She has so much style...a beautiful chandelier, adorned with crystal beading and chic cheetah print shades.
Ooh, look at this autumn vignette...why didn't I think of tying my favorite ribbon onto my pumpkins? I definitely will copy this next year!

Cute tablescape...just dang cute!...Next year y'all!


It must be so nice to walk into a kitchen and know that the lady of the house has it all under control...her Menu board..."Here's what y'all are having"!
And she bakes, also! Good heavens, that cake looks delish!


Look at this...a black and white toile pot! Now Miss Nancy, I likedta died when I saw this toile pot! As soon as I finish this post I'm gonna google "toile pots & pans." I just have to have this...just have to!

She even loves Kitty Bartholomew...oooh, so does Miss Janice!

Look at this bunny in a vignette...pretty as a picture. Miss Janice loves people who love bunnies!
Miss Nancy, your blog is amazing...I get so much inspiration everytime I visit with you. Thank you for all that you do to inspire all of us! So...on that note, I think I simply must award Miss Nancy "Five Silver Spoons." Don't y'all agree? She deserves them! Congratulations Miss Nancy!


Miss Janice's "Five Silver Spoons" Award


Well, I sure hope y'all have enjoyed visiting Miss Nancy's home today. If you have never been to her site, be sure to drop by...she's ever-so gracious!

Oh, one more thing...that toile pot came from a catalog I receive in the mail...called Ginny's....I am sure they have a website...and I think they still have the toile pots because they were in the last catalog I received back around Christmas. Nancy

Miss Janice you are so sweet to recognize the terrific Nancy. She is one of my favorite bloggers. At Christmas I borrowed her dish towel idea for my own Christmas kitchen. Both of you are just the best.

Janice,

You are wonderful to recognize Nancy. She and you are both such Southern ladies and I love both of you very much. You are both such inspirations to me.

momof3girls said...

I loved your wonderful gracious comments about Nancy! That was a wonderful tribute to her. You are a great friend indeed.

I tried to check out her blog (I love her tassels!) but while it is pulling it up google comes up and says it can't be found, am I doing something wrong???

Jules from "The Roost" said...

Lovely, thanks for sharing all the pictures.

playsdolls said...

What a wonderful home Miss Nancy has,everything is so beautiful and organized.Those are some of the most beautiful tassels I have ever saw,very unique.

Good luck on plating. Hubby and I keeping our yardwork to a minimum this year, we are just going to cut back and remove some plants from the yard.
His grandmother loved plants in general and had a prized garden. Though it has been neglected since she passed in 2000, there are still many wonderful plants left. We just need to clean it up BIG Time! Next year, Hubby and I will look into adding to the yard.

I'm not going to lie.. I googled toille pots and pans BEFORE the end of the post. BEAUTIFUL!

JudyBug said...

I want to live with Miss Nancy. Let's see, I'm way too old to be adopted. A Nanny? I'm not too flexible any more so that may not work. Hmmm, I'll have to work on this.
