I still remember the first time I opened the door to Daisy‚Äôs. Of course a business is not as important as your children, but a small business, especially a small retail boutique, is such an absolute expression of who you are and what you love along with much of your time (sometimes all of your […]

I am a hopeless romantic. I believe in every aspect of love the same way Anne Shirley lived every moment of her life, and Dean Martin sang about so often.  My mom spent much of my childhood looking for true love.  I was worried it didn’t really exist for years or maybe it was just in […]

Last year Home Accents Today named Daisy’s one of its 50 Retail Stars of 2010. This year they did a feature about Daisy’s and I thought I would share it with you.

Before we embarked on our day, Michele and I went on a scouting trip to make the final list of stops.  Of course before that I did what anyone would do and scouted the internet. I went to the website for High Hand Nursery. The pictures were lovely but I had been fooled by pictures before […]

Welcome to Horton Farm. A quick trip down the road from Auburn to Loomis lies the type of place you see in a documentary that seems to move at a different pace than most. In reality, I can only imagine that it is just as busy as any other. The farm is run by Doug […]

Sunday was our first road trip. More than 30 of us jumped on an American Stage Bus and road in pure luxury to Auburn, CA.  We took this mini adventure because one of my customers, a lovely lady by the name of Michele Abrate suggested it to me.  She is not only a world traveler […]

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 […]
