Upsy-daisy!

Daisies are such happy flowers. As you pronounce the word, notice how it automatically puts a smile on your face?  Daisies are *casual* flowers. I like casual, don't you?
About a month before my wedding, my future mother-in-law Mary, took me to Sears and said, "Honey, pick out whatever you want for your every day dishes!"  I chose a beautiful Mikasa daisy pattern. Those dishes captured the fresh, clean, cheerfulness I wanted for our new home-to-be.
Here are a few ideas focusing on daisies. Are you a daisy fan? Photos from top: daisy chandelier; daisy landscaping; daisy centerpiece; pewter daisy earrings - click on photo for link; knitted daisy dishcloth and Daisy Cake from PinkCakeBox.

Oh I think everyone has to like Daisies! Is it *a Law*? Or is it in our genes? >,-)

And of course, who can talk of Daisies, and not think of Meg Ryan's character in "You've Got Mail"? :-)

I am still nuts about daisy's and anything that is even in a close family. I am so nuts about sunflowers because the sort of like daisy's I think if I was a flower I would be a daisy. They make me happy like your post. ;)

Am I a daisy fan? Lets see..... One thousand times yes!!! (Just in case you couldn't tell from my blog title. LOL!!! ) I LOVE that daisy chandelier. I wish it was in my house.

I'm definitely a daisy fan. I have early daisies and late daisies in my garden and I start picking daisies from the roadside as soon as they appear. Nothing looks prettier in a blue jug than a cheery bunch of daisies.

Too funny, when my sweetheart and I bought our first house together, that very same Daisy chandelier was hanging in the breakfast room!!! And to back it up, was Daisy wallpaper. The people selling the house had a white rotiron table w/glass top, four white chairs with shiney yellow vynal cushions!!! I do like Daisies, however that was a bit much.... It looked better outside on the patio.

All kinds of Dasies are among my gardens -- that is when I have a flower gardens. We have moved so much in the last 5 year that I have NOT had a garden to play in but hopefully that will change this year. I can't stand it any longer. Dasies are fresh looking, soft in color that you can't help but smile. It's wonderful God made so many, many beautiful flowers. He must have been thinking of His mother at the time. Nice thought don't you think!

I knew someone who had that lamp.
I have always liked daisy's! I have Mikasa pattern too. It is full of spring in yellow and greens. I just love it. I have had it for 38 years and still am in love with it. Doesn't work well for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
