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

Maisy is adorable! Great choice and Maggie is so precious!


So precious!! and how do you find all the teenintsy things to go into your dollhouse?
Yet; as I ask that, I remember how many times your name came to mind last weekend and brought a smile to my face. I was junkin' in TX and saw 2or3 tiny little couches...smiled and thought of you!! But the little lamps and dish things...where did you find it all?
Maisy is cute but I have to admit...maggie is the real cutiepie in that household!
She's stolen my heart....

Daisy Cottage

Hi Janey!

I have found things locally at yard sales and on ebay & etsy. I've also been given the most adorable treasures from my blogging friends - those are my favorite dollhouse things. It's just like decorating your real house - if you know what you love then your eye finds it...

Thank you about Maggie - she owns all of our hearts here.. we can never stay mad at her. ;-)



What a cute puppy for the dollhouse I love her name sweet stuff.
Hugs, Diane

Jennifer Conway

Perfect name for her! Looks like she loves lounging!


Oh...I love both Maisy and Maggie...Maggie stole my heart first so I guess she will always be my favorite;)!!!

So darling!!!


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

How cute! Maisy sounds like it works for you and Maggie!

Kimberly C.

You and Maggie crack me up!

The Lady of the House

I just love your little dollhouse! Little Maggie is too funny! The way you interpret what she is saying looks exactly right! Maisy is too cute! Happy Tuesday!

Cass at That Old House

Oh Maisy is very cute... but of course Maggie reigns supreme as Queen of all she surveys. And she should occasionally remind Maisie that she could EAT her if she chose. It helps to keep the peasants in line.

My dogs taught me that.


Kelly Ballard

Very cute little dog for your dollhouse. It's true what you say about dacshunds. They think they own the sofa.

Second Hand Chicks

Debra Howard

So Cute!


How precious,and I think that's the perfect name, Kim, and I'm so glad that Miss Maggie agrees! :-)

Love, Love, LOVE the pictures of Miss Maisy!

Love to you, sweetie pie...


Sheila :-)


Love the dog! Maggie cracks me up!LOL


Great name for the dollhouse pup! That Maggie is such a sweetie, I never tire of seeing pictures of her!

Cindy S.

What a cute name for a cute little doxy! My computer was acting up yesterday, so I wasn't able to put in my vote. It was the same as many others, though. Don't tell Maggie I said this, because she will think I am laughing at her, but I LOVE your sense of humor. I once had a Siamese cat, and she had no sense of humor at times, either. Hugs, Cindy S.


I just showed these photos of Miss Maggie to Nugget and he is panting and drooling all over! He didn't even notice Maisy!


Kim YOU are adorable, I love how the doll house is coming along...i have a question about it please e-mail me so I can ask you one on one. Thanks, Cyndi Maggie is one of a kind, ans Maisy is cute as can be


What a sweet name for the new puppy! It's perfect! And I'm sure Maggie will always rule the roost! ~Adrienne~


What a cute (and perfect)addition to your doll house. And I love the name Maisy. I named my vintage dress form Maisy Doris Daisy (because I LOVE Doris Day):-)
Maggie looks adorable in her little white lace kerchief too ♥

Joni sweet! Cute lil' doggies, both!


Love the name ~Maisy~! Perfect! ~Mandy

Kelly McMaster

Yay! I love the name you chose--so cute and just perfect! The photo of her peeking out from the tiny chair made me giggle out loud!
Thanks for always brightening my day!


Wow. Maisy looks almost exactly like Kim. Amazing. Really cute too.


Maisey really is the perfect name.

Congrats, such fun!

Southern Lady's Vintage

LOL! Maisy! Cute name!

Suzann from The Olive Cottage

Aw! How cute.


LOL... thank you for the giggle this morning sweet Kim :)

It is true though.... there is only one Maggie and only one Kim and they're are both very special to me.

Love you,


Great name!! And Maggie has such a perfect queenly look on her face, as in "We [the royal we] are not amused." :)



I'm tickled you liked my idea! :)


Oh she is so cute. I have never seen one like her.



very cute! Jane x


You have two adorable pups!

Kimberly Padilla

Maisy is an adorable name! I have a guinea pig named Macy, and my daughter had a dog named Macy. They are similar. Enjoy your two beautiful dogs very much!


Maisy is a perfect name! I had such fun looking around Maisy's new home, so many adorable furnishings. XOXO to the one and only Maggie, and to the one and only Kim too.


You've made me smile today. I'm sitting here, listening to Acker Bilk... feeling happy & sighing. When the tune is done, I'm off to hug my pups.

Wishing you a peaceful, sweet day,


There's absolutely only one Maggie! I love the name of your little Maisy, too. Aren't dollhouses fun? You could just live in them all the time.


BIG hugs for Maggie!

Kim D.

Now Maggie don't worry no one can your place. She's so sweet..

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you 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
