Yes ma'am y'all...IT'S MY RULES!!! Love this sign and of course it's perfect for my kitchen at "The Roost!"
I found this cute little sign on one of my new favorite blogs...The Classic Preppy. You might recognize her logo of the cute pink turtle from Blogland, Twitter, or Facebook... She's an eighth generation Southerner y'all! She's also a former Account Executive and Etiquette Instructor for Tiffany & Co. Goodness gracious--now that's one high-fallutin' title! Her blog is about all things preppy and refined. Be sure to check it out!

The Classic Preppy's logo...

Recently, The Classic Preppy featured some shops she had visited in Farmville, Virginia and this one caught my eye...The Sleeping Bee.
Classic Preppy even mentioned that "Miss Janice would like this store."

When is saw this photo from the store...I couldn't pick up my iPhone fast enough to call and try to get one.

Now it's on the wall of the entry to my kitchen...just so everyone knows the rules!!!
Mlle Coco Chanel says "Hey Y'all!"

A few more words...

~Before I close today, I want to say thanks to all of you who supported me during my 16-hour walk at the Relay for Life over the weekend! Thank you for your e-mails, your tweets, your comments on Facebook, your contributions, and your prayers! It was my pleasure to complete the entire event for my friend Jan Taylor, who is battling liver cancer. Today, I am attempting to answer all my e-mails and reply to comments left on my blog over the past week. I am waaaaay behind, but I promise to catch up and visit with all of you.

~Also, if you are a new follower of my blog, I say "welcome" and promise to visit your blog very soon!

~I have a giveaway coming up I believe this Sunday, so be sure to check back to enter:)

Have a wonderful week y'all!

Hi Miss Janice,

The sign is perfect!

I am trying to catch up, too. It's been awhile since I dropped by, so I missed about the relay. J and I have participated in our local relay and know the gambit of emotions that run throughout the night from the highly emotional survivors walk, through the night to the lighting of luminarias, to the the release of the ballons at dawn. I am all misty eyed with my memories of Relay for Life.

Big applause for completing the walk! Well-done! Others will eventually benefit from caring like yours. Love the rooster, will check out your friend's site. Have a glorious week!

Thank you for the mention, Miss Janice! Yes, when I walked into that store and saw the abundance of all things rooster/roost oriented, I knew I had to take photos for you to see. Love the sign in your house!

When I am home in Delray this summer, we will have to get together there or in Palm Beach and compare notes on teaching etiquette....I am sure we both have some stories to tell! Cheers! Liz (The Classic Preppy)

PS> Thanks to all of Miss Janice's readers for visiting TCP today. Miss Janice is a blog start and I am honored to be featured on her blog!!

Congratulations on your "Relay for Life". I participated last year for the first time after having lost my mother-in-law and husband's aunt to breast cancer and having my sister-in-law and my own mother battle the disease as well. What a great cause!
