I ♥ Fall!

I  love Fall! 
I love the coziness of
this time of year & I think 
that is when I fall in 
love with warm coffee drinks all over again. 

I used to be pretty set in my ways with coffee
but I have been trying new things. 
I work from home so many
days I don't even leave my house.. 
let alone get to the coffee shop.
I must say I do love 
our local coffee shops here in 
Oshkosh so it is a treat for me! :)

I came up with a new morning coffee
that tastes better then the average 
caramel cafe latte. 
I bring 1 1/2 cups of milk (I use skim)'
to a boil & add 3 heaping 
tablespoons of Maxwell House international
vanilla caramel latte mix!
So yummy! You could even 
add whip cream if you want!
It's my new Fall favorite treat! 

I also recently (as in yesterday)
finally got my hair cut! I went 
pretty short again &

I had to show off my new knit cowl
that I traded my friend Vanessa
of Baily Belle for &
my recently thrifted Fall
jumper (I beleive it was $1.99)

Happy Fall!!! 

I added a new show to my list so 
NEXT UP... The Artery holiday show
in Downtown Appleton Nov. 7th! 
(I will post more info. soon)

Fall finds!

I am kind of loving Fall 
right now with chilly
mornings & warm afternoons!
October may be one of my
very favorite months.

Speaking of Fall, I needed some
new seasonal clothing items.
I have decided to try & thrift
95% of my wardrobe. 
There are just some things
you shouldn't thrift.. you know! ;)

This shouldn't be hard since I do this 
anyway but after 
buying a new & kind of expensive dress,
wearing it once & having it rip that
was it! 
I have been so happy with my 
finds! Today I found
this sweater for $2.39, shoes (never worn) $2
& the vintage knit hat for $3.
I also bought a few dresses
& spent under $30 total. 
That new dress that I was 
talking about.. was $40 for
one dress!

I also recently bought 
new glasses as my prescription
changed while ago. 
I found these cute frames 
at Zenni optical online. 
I bought both pairs
for under $25. with 

Happy Fall friends! xo!

Hello September!

Hello September! :)
I have been a busy bee, working
on Fall inspired accessories!
I just finished a few new patchwork
rosie headbands. I only
have 6 (for now)
so you better get to the 
downtown Appleton 
market early this Saturday!
We are there from 8-12:30 on Oneida st. 
just off of College ave.

September is also our anniversary! dainty daisies
turns 14! Its hard to believe in 2001 
I started this as a little hobby, now 
turned full time business! 
Thank you all from
the bottom of my heart for continuing to
support me all of these years!
It's been an adventure &
I am so thankful for you all,
you allow me to do what I love everyday!

I get a little sappy thinking about 
all of the changes this lil' business 
of mine has been through..
with that being said ;) I just 
finished the sweetest 
batch of baby rosie 

& some new hair bows/ bow ties
that I think will look great
with any Fall outfit! 

I love the change of seasons.
It's a time to reflect on the past seasons &
get re inspired! 

We will be at the market this Saturday!
Hope to see you there! xo!
