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

That is exciting! Your hearts are lovely.

Lavender Dreamer

How sweet! Can't wait to get the magazine!


Dear Kim, Darn! I had my hand on that magazine yesterday (130 miles away) and didn't buy it. I'm so happy for you,what a nice thing. I'm going to get the magazine and take a look. Give Maggie and your other dog a kiss.


Darling article, and such beautiful handmade hearts, what a treasure
trove. Enjoy for a lifetime, Hugs, Diane


Hi Kim
I love that magazine and spent quite a while thumbing through it at Borders recently. It is so expensive though! I just couldn't pay that much for a magazine.
Hope you're having a great day.
Hugs, Rhondi


That is wonderful. I must look at that issue to admire everything.

Lisa ~A Cottage to Me

I love Hearts! And you've got a beautiful collection. Thanks for sharing! :)

Betty Jo

OMGosh! How wonderful is that?! Somerset Life is awesome. xoxo

Kris Grover

I love your blog. Sometimes I just keep it on so I can hear the wonderful, soft music!!!
: ) Have a happy day from Kris in So. Cal

Hi Kim,
How exciting! Love Love Sumerset Life!
Hearts to you and Keep your garden,Maggie and yourself warm tonight! A Chilly Florida Night coming our way!


The hearts are so lovely, makes me want to make some... too cute.I must pick a copy of Somerset up! Just what I am in the mood for.


Your hearts are so gorgeous and now millions get to see them and share in their beauty. You truly are gifted and I enjoy coming and seeing some sunshine each time I visit!


WOW! At first I thought we made the cover! Hee! How very awesome and how sweet of YOU to share with the Somerset editors. Thank YOU, for simply being YOU!


awwww thats wonderful!!
congratualtions to the heart artists!


Kim I have never heard of that magazine, but I know I will love it, so off to find it. Barnes and Noble will be my first stop. The hearts are so beautiful, what an honor to you and those who sent them!


That is so cool! Congratulations to the artists who were chosen. Now you love your littel bowl of hearts even more don't you?

Thank you Kim,
Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for including my lone little heart.
Thanks for making our hearts sing with your blog.

Kelly Long

Hi Kim,
I haven't been able to find this magazine here?? I've been looking but I guess in all the wrong places(; How exciting for the girls that made those hearts!! They must be so thrilled and proud!

Jean Eakin

How great of you to share your hearts. I will look forward to seeing the article. Many years ago I remember being fascinated with Mary Emmerlings collection of many different kinds of hearts, she even has a book about hearts, a very sweet book.
Have a heartfelt good evening Kim.
Jean in Virginia


Cute hearts, Kim! That's neat that your friend's hearts were selected for the magazine. I'll have to look for it. Is it at Books A Million or Barnes & Noble?

I thought about you today. I dropped into Vintage, and I fell in love with an artillery basket. LOL! My friend Lu and I were out and about, and we had a good time visiting the new shop. Wish you had been there, too! I love the location.


Sheila :-)


Kim, that's such a neat idea to collect those hearts from readers, and I love that they were featured in a fun magazine article.

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

I loved this issue of Somerset....well, heck, I love ALL issues of Somerset! I saw the pretty hearts, but didn't recognize that they were part of your collection that your sweet readers had sent to you! That's fabulous!!


I am going to the bookstore tomorrow to pick up a copy. I love the handwork, so delicate and beautiful. Thanks for sharing.


Somerset is a magazine I would buy if I only had one choice. Does this one have anything to do with blogging, or did they just 'BORROW" your hearts ? Glad they are home now. How is Maggie doing these days ? All quiet on that front so she must be just fine.
Plan to skip out and check out the magazine tomorrow.


How fun! You were very generous to share, and now your hearts are magazine stars, and those who made them can feel so happy. Just think - seeing their little creations gracing a magazine - what a thrill!
I love Somerset Magazine, but didn't know about Somerset Life. I'll look for it the next time I'm in a bookstore (you can tell that I'm a little behind the times, but then I get to catch up, via Daisy Cottage!).

How wonderful! Congratulations to the "heart makers" who were chosen. xo rachel


How wonderful and sweet...who can resist hearts?

Gina @ Six in the Country

How amazing! What a wonderful thing, to have something you treasure so much be featured in such a wonderful publication!


I stayed at your site for over 2 hours and drooled, wished, and wandered down every path. What a blessing to find such a delightful spot that just "takes you away". May God bless you with many sunny days, and the health to continue your travels down a world of cobblestone paths. God Bless. I think I have found a "new" home and I don't even have to leave this chair!!!!!!!


How exciting! The hearts are lovely.


Beautiful, as always! :)

I just wanted to say that I wrote about how much I love your blog on my blog. If you want to take a gander...


The Decorated House

Hi Kim~
It's such a fun tribute to you and the kindness of your readers. I'll have to look for the new issue, since I haven't seen it yet.

Brrr... keep warm my friend.
Hugs, Donna

spread your wings

i tried to find this magazine the other day and it seems they had other Somerset magazines but not this one. I will search harder.
What a incredible idea and so special that you and the artists were featured in the magazine.


How exciting to share your hearts -- I'll look for the magazine.

Sweet Cottage Dreams

I cannot wait to get my issue! How wonderful that they are being featured. The hearts are just precious and each one so unique.



Sweet Kim,
Thank you so much for featuring my felted wool hearts. I'm so glad they've brought you and your readers joy!! That's what crafting is all about, isn't it.

I am amazed everyday at this wonderful e-community of supportive and talented women who open up their HEARTS and share their artistic, creative selves through their art and crafting, and their home decorating. I believe it is so important to nurture ourselves and each other along the path of creativity and beauty. And it is truly a beautiful thing to see women so supportive of each other through their blogs.

I believe we help create a more loving, and caring world when we pay attention to the details. And when we lift up the old, forgotten, and overlooked things around us and find their beauty; this becomes holy work.

You are an artist too, Kim




How incredible to have your hearts entered into such a great magazine.....Congrats!!


Can you have too much red in your home? Oh, probably, but for me I seriously doubt it. I come to blogs that I can in. I just love the red.
LOVE it here! :)


That's a beautiful example of a gift that keeps on giving. I need to grab a copy of Somerset soon!
Hugs to you and Maggie!


That certainly is exciting! Isn't that sweet!?! I just happen to have that same magazine issue sitting right here in front of me on my coffee table! I was looking at those hearts just last evening!

Oh, BTW, I am having a tatting giveaway on my blog right now. You are more than welcome to come and enter if you would like! :)

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
