And the winner is….ME! I am just a simple girl with a tiny brick and mortar shop in a sleepy little suburb.  Well that is what I thought until I got a phone call back in May. The voice on the other end of the phone said “Your a star”, it was a woman’s voice […]

So I am on my way to the big gift show in New York City along with my trusty assistant Jillian.  We headed there via Washington DC to visit my son, William.  You can’t help but be in awe of the amazing things you will see at all the free museums.  As much as everyone […]

What do you think of the new Lollia display? A brilliant lady named Margot Elena created this truly lucsurious line of fragrances.

So I have been trying to figure out why I couldn’t hit the button on blog posts.  I was really getting into it and I loved doing it.  Chatting with friends and customers is what I do all day.  It is the best part of my job. This is a great group of people to […]

Well it came yesterday!   It is already flying off the shelves.  Apparently I was the only one who didn’t know it was the happening thing in polish.  Butter’s claim to fame is that it is free of the bad 3.  3 Free is what they do and it means No Formaldehyde, No toluene, and […]

 So I was longing for some signs of spring. I have some new paint that needs to meet the sun. I know we need the rain and I love a long shower so I am willing to put up with a fair amount to ensure I can keep them. That being said I just need […]

 OK, my going for muted blue or a whispery olive green is like most people going for Indian Beige.  It is what I do.  At first that was the color theory for the new paint at Daisy’s. But I had a few muses and some inspiration and decided to go for it.  First I have […]
