Let Your Home Be Your Heart

  • What I hope for my readers and for all keepers of the nest, is that they embrace their homes with their heart and all of the passion that it holds. I want them to know that they can decorate on a limited budget by seeing things in new ways; by rescuing the broken and transforming the ugly. I hope that they flaunt their favorite color and decorate their life with it. I hope that their homes feel like one giant hug that welcomes them each and every time they walk through their front door. More than anything I want everyone to have their own home-sweet-home dream come true! xo, Kim

I remember when you were naming Daisy Cottage and what fun I've had watching you work your magic, with her.

Kim, yours was one of the first blogs I ever saw and I was so enchanted by Daisy Cottage that I immediately wanted to enter this blogging world and I did! So Daisy cottage was an inspiration to me and continues to be a daily stop for inspiration and eye candy.

Congratulations on your first anniversary! It is such a joy to stop by here each day and see what is happening in your delightful home. I always feel welcomed when I enter and so inspired when I leave. Thanks for sharing.

Happy first year! I know I found your blog nearly a year ago now and just lurked for a while, but it doesn't seem like a year..... here's to the next one!

Victoria

I, too, have silently admired your enchanting blog for the last year. Dear Daisy seems to have a soul. Each day as I start my routine after everyone as left our home I check into yours. Amazing how the sweet spirit of Daisy Cottage flows over and out to embrace her visitors.
May this anniversary and all those that follow bring you and yours and especially dear Daisy the contentment and peace you so richly deserve.
And thank you for sharing Daisy Cottage.

Nicole

CONGRATS on a whole year of great blogging! I'm more of a "lurker," but I sure enjoy your blog!
Hope you have another great year of blogging! :o)

Karen

Kim, your blog itself is such a gift! I love stopping by here each day. Thank you for welcoming me into your home:) As if you haven't done enough, the music you play is truly "food for the soul," just like your Daddy said. I can't wait to get my CD (ordered it on amazon).

Congratulations to you and to Daisy Cottage:)

Vicky G.

Happy Anniversary Kim, I thought your day was coming up soon. You have touched so many people's lives with your beautiful blog...you are a true talent. What a wonderfully written tribute to your Daisy Cottage...and I'm loving the music. We put our move off until tomorrow because of the rain, now I won't be as rushed and can sit back and remember how my first house has taken care of me for almost 17 years. Enjoy your day! Love, Vicky G.

Katie

Happy Anniversary! Thank you for all you do. You brighten my days. I too love color - red and yellow especially. Your blog inspired me to paint two of my rooms in those colors. I hope you have many more years of blogging ahead. Have a great day!

Tricia

Congratulations, Kim, on your first anniversary!
Your sweet spirit is evident everywhere in your yellow cottage.
Every morning I bring my cup of tea and visit with you. It's a wonderful, peaceful, way to begin my day!
Many thanks to you for sharing your home and life!

Aunt Barbie

Just beautiful.I now have a lovely face with a name,sweet spirit and sweet soul.Happy Anniversary,Kim

JAN

I have another blogger friend who is going thru chemo and I check in every morning to see how she is doing. Then if I'am sad after I read hers I come on over to your sunny yellow house and it never ceases to amaze me as it perks me up. I also live in a yellow house so I also get ideas for decorating. Don't ever give up your blog.

lisa

Happy Anniversay Kim!! I am so happy to have found your blog it so full of inspiration for me! You are always so sweet and Daisy Cottage is just beautiful!

Happy Anniversary!

Anna Maria

Kim our blogs were born almost at the same time as I have a one year to celebrate soon too. Its been very fun being newborns with you. Your letter to Daisy made me cry and made me remember just how special a home is. Thanks for that!
With love and best wishes for many more years of coming home to the rest of us!! xo,AM

Kellie

Yeah, Kim! Congratulations on your anniversary for your oh-so-fabulous blog! You do such a fantastic job, I always think I would love to live in your house, so I'm so glad to visit via technology on a regular basis.
And such a great giveaway -- I truly can't resist. Count me in!

Claudia

Kim - Happy Anniversary! I hadn't stopped by in a while and I was delighted to hear "Stranger on the Shore". It is one of my favorites and I listen to it regularly on my Ipod. Your blog is delightful!

By the way, I'm the one who wrote you about Edgar Guest being my Dad's godfather. I have since purchased several of his books - they are sitting on my piano along with my Dad's toy Model T.

Best wishes for another wonderful year.

Claudia

Teresa Alber

Happy Anniversary. I visit your blog every day and absolutely love it. It is definitely one of my favorites. Thank you for sharing your lovely home and bits of your life too.

Congrats, Kim! You inspired me to start my blog too. I'm so happy for you that you made one year...thanks for being the sweet friend that you are.

Happy birthday Daisy Cottage!

Laurel

Kim,
I have been a HUGE fan of yours ever since I first found your lovely home years ago as 'housewarming'! It is quite a long story how I caught up with you here, which I will share with you sometime soon. Thank you for being such a bright spot in my day. Your home and blog are so wonderful to me because of the personality behind them! All the best and a Happy one year Anniversary!

Marlene Haveron

Good Morning Kim!

Congratulations on your one year blogiversary. I look forward to another year. Clarice

Stephenie M.

I stumbled onto your blog from someone else's, don't remember which, and from the moment I heard your song list, I was addicted. I now stop by every day to see what lovely thing you have done, or found. Here's to more happy years in your cottage!

C. Stower

Kim, I can see from recent posts that you have become extremely popular. You have even been in a magazine, yes, I had to go out and buy "Romantic Homes", and tell my friends that my blog friend's blog was mentioned in it. I also remember helping you pick your name. I suggested that you use the word "Cottage" in your name, because it just sounded right for your lovely home. I feel like I have been a part of your life, at least your blog life. LOL!! I love your positive approach to life and your love for home, it matches mine. Hugs, Cindy

Chris

Happy anniversary Kim! I have enjoyed every one of your posts and always wish I could see Daisy Cottage in person. When I saw that first picture of the Royal Mail plates I knew I had to leave a comment. My MIL had those dishes for years and now my SIL has them. I am thinking of trying to build a set because I see them once in a while and I love them. Hope you are celebrating with champagne or something tonight.

Debbie

I love visiting your blog every day. Your love for home is inspiring to me. home is the most important thing, yes? Your talent for decorating and writing are a gift. You are truly blessed beyond measure. I love your dogs too!

MimiG

Kim -
I love the letter to your home - isn't it wonderful to wonder about other families that have loved there, felt heartbreak and joy? I do love homes with a history.....
you're giving away something red! And I paraphrase something Sally Field once said - "You really love US!!!!" Sign me up!!!
MimiG

Penny

Kim, Happy Anniversary to your blog and your home! You have made me feel very welcome every time I visit. I truly enjoy stopping by.

Happy blogging anniversary!

I look forward to your next year of blogging!

I just love, love, love reading your blog. I stalk it all the time!! You have a lovely home and I thank you for sharing it with all of us. I'd love to win, so please count me in. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Anne Galvin Bremer

Hi Kim:

I lurk all the time, almost every day. I've never commented before, but I want you to know today that Daisy Cottage means a great deal to me. My beloved home on Constitution Avenue is just two years older. I feel the same way about my house that you do about yours. So, dear Kim, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for all the pleasure that you give all of us. Big HUGS and blessings, Anne

Brigitte

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary, Kim! It's such a pleasure to visit your blog and I'm very happy that you share your home with us!

Alexandra

Happy Anniversary! Both YOU and your blog are an inspiration!

Kim B

Kim, Happy Aniversary to you and Dear Daisy. I look forward to each visit I make to DAISY COTTAGE. Your stories are so heartwarming. I especially loved the story about your Dad, the other day. I too have a similar story about my Dad. Thank you for inviting each one of us onto your porch to chat awhile. When I visit I am often reminded of a quote from one of my favorite movies "Hope Floats" ..... "my cup runneth over". Thanks again and Happy Anniversary.

Kim,
Happy Anniversary! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home everyday. You are at the #1 spot on my blog journey when I turn on my computer. I get soooooo inspired everyday from your posts, thinking "oh, I could maybe do that..." Congratulations to you.
Miss Janice

Louise

Kim,
I found you blog through a friends and was immediately captivated. It has become my "escape" when I need a few moments of stress relief. I've have especially enjoyed the added music. It reminds me of my mother, a music lover who made her children her career, and instilled that love in them also. Thank you for allowing into your home.
Louise

Sandi Henderson

A year? Only a year? I feel as if I have known you so much longer. Oh the power of blogs. Congratulations!

Sandi

Mona

Dear Kim, I wanted to say happy anniversary, but mostly I wanted to tell you how much your blog has meant to me lately. My mother is in the process of dying and her four children are taking care of her. It is so overwhelming, but when I go to your blog it is so uplifting and positive. I've gone out and bought your red paint and will be doing some painting when I get the time. You really do make the world a better place and I wanted you to know it. I can't believe you're giving away all those great things. I've drooled over the red painted tray. How can you give it up? You don't even know, but thanks for making my (hard) days a little brighter. Much affection, Mona

Nicole

Congrats Daisy and kim on your 1 year!! I love waken up in the morning and reading your blog with a nice cup of coffee. You bring such nice joy to people. I can't say how much I just love your home. Thank you for the everlasting eye candy!!!

linda t

Dearest Kim & Daisy Cottage, the happiest Blog-iversary to you and yours!
Your blog sure makes me smile. I check your blog daily, then listen to your lovely music while I check my email.
What a lovely way to start my day.
Thank you for sharing your sweetness with us!

Martha Going

What a delightful blog that I have happened onto. The mix of colors are inspiring. I don't have the natural talent to see treasure in a stack of stuff or a pile of things but I love seeing what people come up with. Your love of history comes through in the different things you display for us. You sound like a wonderful, sweet friend. I'm fortunate to have some in my life. Congratulatioins on a year in your dream home!

Sara Achuff

Kim,

Happy Anniversary to you and Daisy Cottage. I just knocked on its door on Monday. It happily welcomed me into its beautiful rooms! Your sense of style is truly amazing. You just seem to have an eye. I, too, have a cottage. I acquired it three years ago. I am the fourth generation of family to have it entrusted to my care. I love it so and feel such a connection to its past. It is really an old friend (and, oh, the memories). When I visit, the outside world passes away and the worries with it. I come into its arms and it makes me smile, as Daisy Cottage does for you (it may even have a few ghosts, but they are very friendly). It is a 1919 Dutch Colonial cottage at Harvey's Lake, PA. I love decorating it in an eclectic style (lots of family stuff). It is mine only for a little while, and I am so thankful. You have given me such inspiration, Kim! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please continue to surround yourself with the beautiful things that you love. You are doing so much to lift the spirits of others with this incredible blog.

Sincerely,
Sara

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Happy anniversary, Daisy and Kim and Kim's family. Such a generous lady you are, Kim. And such a good good writer. Thanks.

Erin

Kim, I stop by your Daisy Cottage every day and enjoy all of your photos and your blogs! My sister and I live many miles apart; I'm in So Cal and she in Minnesota but we find ourselves calling each other in the evening to talk about your blog :) I'm just starting my own blog and while I don't have any comments yet I can only hope that it will grow - you're an inspiration! Take care, Erin

Dawn

Thank you for all the wonderful days of sharing Daisy Cottage with us and may you have many, many more.

Laurie

Happy Blogging Anniversary, Kim! You are truly a sweetheart! It's so much fun to know I have a friend way out East on the coast of Florida, in a little yellow cottage. So much like a storybook! I am thrilled for you to have your dream come true. Hopefully one day my house dreams will come true, too. You have the best, classy, and most fun taste, ever! Honestly! Hugs, Laurie~

Your hospitality and sweet spirit make the home even more beautiful! Thanks for reminding me that one day I too will have my "dream come true!" ~ Ida - MOPS Member

Thank You Jane!

  • "I just discovered your blog and am blown away with the comfortable, almost nostalgic feel of it...almost like finding a long-lost friend after many years apart...somehow familiar, but all so exciting and new." ~ Jane

Thank You Dena!

  • "Kim, I love your blog. I so appreciate you sharing every day. I miss you when you're gone. Losing my dear sweet baby boy in Iraq has made me treasure life and those so dear to me. Reading your blog is such therapy for me. You have made me treasure the finer things in life that I use to overlook. Birds singing, flowers blooming, my home and all of the treasures within it. I'm not sure that I ever looked at a teacup or saucer and saw such detail and beauty in it." ~ Dena

Thank You Grace!

  • "I would like to let you know what a joy it is to wake up each morning and read your delightful blog. I always feel as if you are speaking directly to me. Since I was diagnosed with an immune disease a year ago I wanted only to read positive and very inspiring blogs and your blog was the first I found. I think maybe the good Lord meant for me to find your blog and since then it has been nothing but smiles all around. I have tried very hard to stay positive about this disease and very up beat. I know that there is no cure and I have accepted this, but reading things with a positive message and filled with so much love helps. This is where you come in and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart and to let you know how very much you and Miss Maggie are loved." ~ Grace

Thank You Francesca!

  • "Oh my! I have just stepped into heaven. A nostalgic, magic, getaway place where folk love one another and life is sweet. Kim, you will probably never know just how many hearts you have touched with your site. " ~ Francesca

Thank You Kathy!

  • "I visited my friends with their tasteful beige homes and sometimes questioned if there was anyone else in this world who loved the things I did. Then I found Daisy Cottage and a whole community of other women who shop the side of the road, paint their furniture fun colors, and aren't afraid to fill their homes with touches of whimsy and fun. What a relief! We aren't alone! I'm not alone. Thanks for all your inspiration and for confidently sharing your home and the idea that we can have fun with our decorating. I never get tired of visiting here Kim." ~ Kathy

Thank you Rue!

  • "That hankie is like you and your blog Kim. In the middle of all of the other beautiful hankies, it's the one that stands out and makes you feel at home." ~ Rue

Thank You Jeanette!

  • "Sigh.... between your music, red and yellow mellow feeling and wonderful writing I just feel so calm. What would I do without you in the morning with my cup of coffee." ~ Jeanette

Thank You Lenna!

  • "My eyes have been opened to a world I never knew existed. Such vibrant creativity, such caring community: it literally takes my breath away. After so much loneliness and isolation it is overwhelming to me that such a world even exists. In time I hope to be able to fill my garden of life with lovely, loving friends instead of the weeds of loneliness. Until that time lace tablecloths will come out of storage, music and lovely scents will fill the air of this home. And I shall visit the Daisy Cottage when I feel despair raise its dark, obscuring head, for I know from experience, that it is ever lurking behind that next bout of pain and weakness. Your kind and generous response has strengthened my resolve, you have helped me more than you will ever know, my new-found friend." ~ Lenna

Thank You Rose!

  • "What I love best about Daisy Cottage is Kim. I love the way you appreciate every good thing in life and embrace joy in every moment." ~ Rose

Thank You Lisa!

  • "Here's how I can best describe into words how your blog made me feel. You know when you wake up in the morning and there's an early morning thunderstorm and every room in your house is as dark as night? Then, the rain and thunder stop and the sun comes shining through all the windows and you just know it's going to be a beautiful, sunshine day? Well, that's how finding Dear Daisy Cottage made me feel. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Kim. You blessed my day and may God do the same for you." ~ Lisa B.

Thank you Pamela!

  • "Your blog has helped me start to see the beauty in life again." ~ Joy

Thank You Anne!

  • "Thank you for your wonderful blog. I have been "lurking" but had to share with you how much you have helped me embrace the fun of decorating. I came to your blog looking for pictures to inspire me as I redecorate my house with cottage style. Today I was so tangled up in doing it "right" that it was really depressing me. I visited your blog again for some fresh ideas and came away realizing that there is no "right." Just me being me and enjoying my home! I am laying here in bed with tears in my eyes - tears of happiness that it is okay to be me and let that shine through in my house and what I wear and what I make with my hands. You are God's gift to me today and I thank Him and you." ~ Anne
