Hello, I am Nancy J. and I am
the ‘Nana’ in Nana’s Li’l Blossoms.
I have always been considered
the artful one, the decorator, the musician,

before they leave, the good-byes, and kisses
and wonderful hugs. I send instructions and
notes to let the new ‘mommy’ know all my
little wishes and joy to them. I worry like

Here at Nana’s Li’l Blossoms
I have a nursery studio, complete with
bassinets and dressing table, dresser and a
mobile. We listen to soft music and
lullabies and have a relaxing atmosphere.
I hope you enjoy looking
through my work and perhaps have interest in
a custom reborn from me.
