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

The feathered nest

Wow, didn't even know there was such a thing! What a special gift - it's so cute!



I've never heard of this one, but it sure looks cute there on your table next to those gorgeous flowers.



Well at least I'm not the only one who hasn't heard of this board game. I loved the story of Pollyanna when I was little...

That simply looks perfect in your home! The game sounds intriguing, too!

Too cute!! A great way to start the week!!!

Esther Sunday

So sweet! Also, loved the post below of your adventure out... excpet for the croc, that is... Love, Esther


Hi Kim,

What a wonderful game to display on your red table. I'll bet it brings you much joy to see it sitting there and the colors compliment your pretty room so nicely.



Whoa! How very cool is that? I'm a big Pollyanna fan; I even have crystals handing in my window to throw rainbows around the room when the sun hits them. That board game is the coolest and such a perfect touch for Daisy Cottage and our Kim!


I have never seen this one before.
Thanks for sharing,


How cute is that? I used to love to watch the movie Pollyanna, with Hayley Mills. I never knew there was such a!
Hey, I nominated you for a "You Make Me Smile" blog award, and posted about it today over at my blog!

Kim, I have never heard of the Pollyanna game, I saw the movie when I was in grade seven and loved it! I love the place you wrote about yesterday! Oh, how I would love to visit that it, I probably live too far away though, LOL! Hugs, Cindy


oh gosh that is so cool! I would love to find myself one of those!

teresa mcfayden

Oh that is so adorable I can't stand it. Miss C is a peach! So are you. :)

Hi Kim, I nominated you for an award...check out my blog.


Kim: The Polyanna gameboard is so cute...perfect for your home.

Flea Market Queen

I love the gameboard...
Very sweet!

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

That is so sweet. How nice that you can leave it out on your coffee table. I have way too many visiting teenage boys and young men to leave anything other than a basket of flowers on my table. Even the basket makes it to the floor most days.

Susan Tuttle

Your blog is so much fun!! I can just stare and stare at all of your wonderful decor!!



Kim that game is wonderful. I have not heard of it! It's perfect on Daisy Cottage's game table!



What a very sweet present! And Yay!! you put my favorite melody up first!! Thanks!


Junie Moon

What a wonderful game and in such excellent condition. My sisters found a first edition of the Pollyana book and gifted me with it many years ago. It's one of my favorite treasures.


You lucky duck, you! Those old ones are really pretty. I tried to buy one at a "pre" estate sale, but they wouldn't let it go.


Kim, I just gasped when I saw this because my kids would say let's play the Glad Game and after this weekend, it is something I need to play. Craig thinks we should give Ellie away. How do you tell that to the kids?!!! I am heartbroken.


This is the first time I have heard of the Pollyanna game. Wow, I learn something new everyday. How perfect this sweet game is for your Daisy Cottage. Love the photo's.


Oh how wonderful this is!! I adore Pollyanna! In fact, I finally got it on DVD and Grace and I watched it together! It was Grace's first viewing! She LOVED it!

Sometimes I think about the GLAD game and try it in my head...and now you have the game! And from the delightful Charlotte! How special is that!

Have a sweet week...I am *GLAD* that I know Kim and have her blog to delight me each day!

Love and hugs always,

tea time and roses

Hi Kim, what a special little treasure you have here... Enjoy!




That is GREAT! It reminds me of an old Pacheesi gameboard. Is it similar?


What a beautiful treasure!

The Decorated House

Wow what a sweet gift from Charlotte, and what a cool old game. It looks great in its new home!

And Ms. that the sweetest little "ham" ever? She really doesn't know she's a d..o...g does she!



Oh, I love this!

I'm blogging about POLLLYANNA, myself and landed on your picture and started pining for a chance to play this game. Oh, and then I saw that beautiful yellow house (Yellow's my favorite color!) and heard that beautiful music. And, you received that fabulous game in great condition!

I am soooo happy for you! :O)

Oh, I must favor this page! Oh. This is 2007? No matter! It's been preserved, just for me! :O)

Oh! The song's changed! I {{{love}}} your musical choices! If I can, I'm subscribing to this blog!

Sunshine & Blessings,

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you Fifi!

  • "It's people like yourself that make everything beautiful and worthwhile." ~ Fifi

Thank You Ida!

  • Kim I just wanted to thank you again for allowing us into your sweet home! I absolutely loved being there and looking around with you. 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!

  • "I am so touched by your words and photographs. Whether in happy or sad times, you inspire my heart and soul. We all need each other's light and you offer us that dose of sunshine." ~ Pamela

Thank you Joy!

  • "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

Thank You Tracy!

  • "Your words and thoughts of encouragement help me see myself with value. You are a blessing. Thank you." ~ Tracy

Thank you Karen!

  • "Your humble spirit has not changed through your many posts here in Blogland. You have been blessed with a special gift and I am very thankful you share it with us." ~ Karen

Thank You Betty Jo!

  • "You truly inspire me to do whatever I can in my own little nest. I've always been an artistic dreamer, but you've enlarged my dreams with your way of seeing." ~ Betty Jo
