I apologize...

I forgot to blog about the "secret sale". I woke up late and just barely made it to the bank to get change this moring and be on time to open! It has been sooo nice having my husband home on vacation taking care of the kids and letting me sleep in a bit...

Sooo on with the "secret sale"! It is not really a secret.. but ALL skirts are $5.00 off! Yes! ALL dainty daisies handmade skirts are $5.00 off Tuesday -Friday! (Which we will be closed New years day)so hurry in & get that skirt you have been eyeing up!

Let it snow...

Jada drew this smiley face on the van this morning before she headed off to school! So cute! :)

It is supposed to be a snowy week.. just a reminder if the Oshkosh school district cancels school because of the weather dainty daisies will be closed as well. I am putting a little note up on the window at the shop today!

Thank you all who came out for the open house Saturday night & gallery walk! What a nice group of people.. it was really fun and inspiring! I hope you all enjoyed the cookies.. I had soooo many left over! I guess 4 pounds was enough (huh Mindy?? Lol!)

Have a good Monday.. enjoy the fluffy white snow Wisconsinites.. it is supposed to be coooold by Thur.! I am gonna clean out the garage, catch up on some christmas shopping and clean my house today!

Merry Christmas to me!!!

Last night as I was catching up on my blog reading... I came across a posting by Emily of The Black Apple and she had just posted a few limited edition necklaces in her shop. I always miss out.. but not last night! I am soooooo excited! I bought this sweet one for me! I am litterally doing a happy dance! hehe!
I have been collecting her prints for a while.. we have little red in our living room and many dark haired girls hanging out w/ me in my sewing room! I love her work soooo much! Just had to share... :)

I have been cleaning and rearranging the store getting things ready for this Saturdays holiday open house / gallery walk! I will post all the info. tommorrow.

Have a great day & stay warm.. I actually saw snow flakes while taking the kids to school!

tis' the season....

to decorate! My absolute FAVORITE time of the year! I have been collecting and gathering vintage christmas decor for a few years now and I finally love it all together! I took a few random pics to show you! The tree is up but not decorated yet.. we have a little tradition where we wait about a week or two and then the kids and I bake cookies and decorate the tree! (That way you get spread out the holiday decorating a little at a time!)

I am off to the shop to clean and get things back in order.. this weekend is gallery walk and my holiday open house! Stay tuned for more info. on that tomorrow!

Have a great day everyone! xo!
