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

Hi Kim, I just saw your cottage over at the TOPC. I love cream and pink, but I live with the bright cheerful colors you use and I love them! What a nice change to see some red, yellow, black and blues! Your home is one of my absolute favorites!


Hi Kin,
Congratulations! You really deserve it because you have a house where every corner you catch! I am not tired of coming to visit (even though I use a translator, whether they note, is not it?) Because only view your pictures, I would hours! I said, you deserve it!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

How wonderful Kim! I am heading on over for a look see!

Donna Lynn

I just saw your house on Cottage Of The Month!!! You are so talented, and your house is just wonderful to look at, it was a real treat this morning! It is kinda dreary out and your fun decor gave me a lift!

It is such an honor to be featured isn't it? My house was just featured in the April/May issue of Country Sampler Magazine this year, that was such fun! Come check out my blog if you can, I would love to have you visit!
Hope you had a great weekend with your family and I bet your having great weather there huh? :)

Donna Lynn


BIG congrats, Kim! I thought you had already been featured over there, so you totally deserve it. Your home is my favorite cottage style, by far!

Miss you...wish we could go shopping!


Hi Kim,

Very well deserved indeed :) Congrats! Oooh, I am loving those sweet yellow checked curtains too!



Congratulations. I just came from there, and your home looks lovely - as always.

Very sweet Kim, I really enjoy looking at her blog and website. And oh my gosh I want to paint the above picture with the red boots and umbrellas, I love it!!!


Rachel Going

Congratulations Kim, You deserve it sweetheart. xorachel


Wonderful! Just popped over to look at all the wonderful shots of your home (cottage) - it just gets better and better.


Daisy Cottage is as charming as ever. The photos are just perfect. That terra cotta colored guest room is gorgeous; I don't think I have seen it before.


Fay Marie

Hi Kim,
Congratulations on your cottage style home, being chosen "cottage of the month". Well deserved. I think you should celebrate this occasion. I enjoyed flipping through the photos. Good work, don't know how you manage to keep up with it.
Have a nice day!
Your Canadian friend,
Fay Marie


Kim your cottage is so cute and just makes you feel so welcomed. Thanks for all the inspirations you give us. Congratulations! Have a Blessed Day, Bonnie


Hi Kim
Congratulations on being featured in cottage of the month again! It's nice to see a home with color rather than the usual white pale pink and pale blue that they normally feature! I am a girl who loves color too.
Are you going to be able to join our porch party on Thursday? Hope so!
I am off to admire your wonderful cottage over at the old painted cottage right now. Hope you enjoy your day.
Hugs, Rhondi


Congrats! Awesome news. So deserved. I'm heading over now.


Hi Kim!
I just came from Jennifer's blog.

Congratulations sweetie, it couldn't have happened to a nicer person or cuter cottage and I love that picture of Maggie at the end!


CONGRATULATIONS to you!! You deserve it! You are an inspiration to so many!! Your home is so beautiful and is truly reflective of the love you have put into it. Thank you for your kind words on my blog. You make me feel so good! Thank you for your suggestion on using the broken china to mosaic a picture frame! I am going to do that!
Thanks Aagain and Congrats to you! I am off to see your cottage!! :)

Very Nice Kim. I always enjoy coming to your blog for the color. Your decorating style is proof that there's more to cottage style than pink and white.

How simply perfect Kim!!!! Love EVERYTHING!!!!


I love, love, love your cottage! Especially the painted furniture, and your decorating is inspirational. I just subscribed to your blog in my google reader. I need to learn your secrets!

Cindy Roberts

Congratulations on your feature as Jennifer's COTM! Love your home! Seeing the whimsy and colors in your home makes me want to abandon my pink and white shabby cottage decor! I would love for you to stop by and say hi.

Hi Kim,

The photos of your charming cottage are delightful - what a treat to visit your home through blog land. You have the eye of an artist for color and such great syle - love the tangerine room with all of the landscape paintings. Congratulations.

The Decorated House

Hello Dear Kim!
I loved seeing all your pictures at one time on that site. I haven't been by there in a year or so. It was good that you posted or many of us wouldn't have seen them.
You know my favorite pic was of you and the kids. Simply beautiful.
Hugs, Donna

Dianne Wood

Kim, I love love love your yellow gingham curtains. And everything else your SHOW us...

What a cheerful reminder of curtains I made for my kitchen when I was a young homemaker. Oh so charming....:)

Hugs to you and Maggie
Love from Dianne and Pearl


Hi Kim...
You are so famous! Love those red boots! Did you receive the package from me? Just making sure... Fifi


I loved seeing your home over at Jennifer's! I think you know what a huge fan I am of you and your sweet cottage.
How I would love to have a cup of tea with you at Daisy Cottage.

Someday perhaps...

Have a sweet weekend dear Kim!



What a charming cottage! I love the inspiration I get everytime I peak in for a visit! A life well lived!

Thanks for sharing~


Way to go Kim and Miss Maggie!!!! Your home is beautiful! Congratulations!


I saw the spread of your home on The Old Painted Cottage website. Wow! Beautiful and Unique. I shared it with my sister-in-law and she was enchanted as well. You have made a lovely home. I have a question for you.... What is the paint information for that burnt orange wall? It is lovely and I would work wonders in our bedroom. Kudos for a lovely job! Annmarie

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
