We have to say Good-bye to another lady we grew to love over the years. The death of Dixie Carter is coming to the end of an era of so sweet sugar wouldn't melt in your mouth deliciously and a little naughty unique Southern Belles.

Julia Sugarbaker was one of a kind. Dixie of a kind.

She and husband Hal Holbrook always seemed to personify a mature, strong and so bonded marriage. You could look at either one of them and they seemed to be so proud of the other with eyes for no one else. What a rarity in Hollywood. Or anywhere for that matter!

So long Dixie and until we meet face to face, sista to sista one day...Thanks for the memories, the bit of sass and the laughs and the southern love!


  1. I will miss her saucy, southern charm and dignity! So rare in Hollywood!

  2. I have been out of touch. I am so sad. I loved her. She will be missed here, but Heaven is going to be a better place.

  3. i'm so glad you blogged this, mollye. i adored dixie carter, especially her southern belle alter ego julia sugarbaker.

    in the words of rhett butler, "what a woman!"

    she will definitely be missed.

    I, too, loved Dixie Carter. You say her name and you knew immediately who she was.....Julia Sugarbaker!!!!

    In answer to your question about my oval backgrounds on my photos: this photo app came my Mac computer. My sweet hubby bought me a new computer this Christmas and the new Mac's have really upgraded their I-Photo programs.

    Hope that helps.



  5. Beautifully put, Molly! ... She was a class act.

  6. Oh Miz M. I did not know she had died. She was truly a great lady. I like her a lot too. Poor old Hal he will be lost. Love your new background

  7. She was a great actress who exuded grace and charm.. they really don't make them like that anymore.

  8. Dixie was witty and classy. What was not to love about her? I agree. She will be missed.

  9. Hi there,
    Thank you for stopping by my place last week and
    thank you for your prayers regarding my mom. She had the "cement" procedure done today. It looks good so far. Time will tell.
    You're right about Miss Dixie Carter...a real Southern Belle. We will miss her.
    Take care,
    Mary Lou

  10. Fist time to visit your blog. I will visit often. I will miss Miss Dixie. She remined me so much of my mother. A real Steel Magnolia.
    I love the pink pearls and your music.

  11. Oh, drat. I know it's a part of life, but darn. sigh.

  12. I could not agree with you more darling! Have a wonderful week with heaps of blessings!!!

  13. I love being Southern. What's the old saying: American by birth, Southern by the grace of God.I believe it.
