Gloria sure is a real beauty. I love the material on the back. I understand why you don't want to cover that up. Your house is beautiful, too. :)

A Hint of Home said...

Hi Nancy, I've always admired that couch. It is something I would pick. Love the design and colors and matching pieces. Your home is gorgeous.

Debbie Petras said...

Your red couch is very cool! I can understand why you wouldn't want to put anything behind it since it would cover up her beauty.

This is my first time participating in Flaunt Your Red but I had so much fun finding photos to post of red. Thank you for hosting this one.

Darlene said...

WOW I absolutely love that stunning couch errrr Gloria!! BEAUTIFUL and looks really comfy too! I could definitely get lost in a book sitting on her!♥

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Pretty pretty pretty post!!!

Stacey said...

Nancy, my friend, Gloria is to die for! I'm always trying to catch glimpses of her and wondered when she would be featured properly. Your whole family room is absolutely beautiful. I know what you mean about living with boys...they will put up with any amount of lace and trim for their moms though...right? My husband often says that there's no sign that guys live here. Your built ins are really pretty too.

You know I'm just dying for not participating in the flaunt today. My computer still hasn't been returned. I just hate to invade Spencer's laptop with my pictures and everything. Trying to wait patiently. Now it's time to visit some other lovers of red. :)

Lisa said...

Oh Miss Nancy! Gloria is beautiful!Thanks for sharing her lovely curves with us and for hosting FYR!

Cathy~Mille Fleur said...

Oh Nancy!!! I am in love with your sofa too...I think her name should be changed to Cathy;)!!! How beautiful!!! Her curves...her fabric...her trim...her pillows...
everything!!! Gorgeous!!!

Your room is beautiful...every detail is perfection!!! I love your bookcases and fireplace. They are so lovely!!! A wonderful cozy place to spend your time!!!

I am so glad that you shared this...I love it!!! It is always a treat...whenever I stop by!!!


Denise said...

OMGosh! That is the most beautiful couch I have ever seen! Gloria is lucky to be living in your home!!


Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

"Gloria" is beautiful. I love her curves...everyone knows curvy girls are comfortable!! I also love how you use the hymnal and Bibles in red. Great idea. I think I have that hymnal too. Enjoyed seeing your room!

Rhondi said...

Maridith said...

Be still my heart!
Nancy that is the most beautiful red divan that I have ever laid eyes on. The whole room is absolutely gorgeous. Loved the tassels, they are just the icing on the cake. Loved your southern grammar lesson. I have 7 grandchildren and the all say ya'all. They have all be corrected in school. One of the things that I say all the time, that I didn't notice, was I was always taught to say, "Thank you kindly". I have even my DIL saying that now. A southern gal just rubs off on you, ya know? I am in Phoenix, have been for 23 years. Was born in Charelston, South Carolina. When Daddy got out of the military we lived in Oklahoma as that is where both sets of parents lived. My husband and our jobs brought us to the valley, but I will always be a southern gal at heart. Love your Post. Please stop by and say hello at Country Wings in Phoenix. "Country Hugs", Sherry

I can't wait to show off my red! I love your page. I just want to add that I had the extreme pleasure of living in the south, in Florence, AL, for 3 years. My husband is from there, and I've just got to say that it was everything I thought it would be -- hospitable, charming, gentile, historical, and so much more. I miss so much about it. We're now in So. CA (where I'm from) and my husband is having a hard time adjusting. Can't say that I blame him. Anyway, I'll be a regular at your page...will make me feel a little bit like I'm still there. :-) Thanks for your beautiful page!

bj said...
