I would never consider another florist. I just never thought of anyone else. There is always something new in Micky's shop, that is unique, and I must have it. I love all the design, and the wonderful smell of the fresh flowers.

I have purchased several items from Micky. My home is decorated inside and out, with a touch of the vines. I am asked often " where did you get that" I just love everything Micky has to offer.

I loved her old shop and she has won me over with her new shop in downtown Farmington! Its kind of cool to watch the artist at work there in the back! And she supports the community every chance she gets- and her fairy gardens are awesome.
