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

YUMMmmmm! To the soup AND the puppy....I know snuggling with our little doxie is one of the pleasures of life!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio & The Comforts of Home

The perfect life.....soup simmering on the stove and a warm heart to give you love....


A lovely post, and I like the sun shining in on Miss Maggie. The rhythm of these small things are really the important things in life and make it hum along!


Life is good!!! Thanks for the reminder!!!



Living Honest

We have all lost virtue
It has slipped away
Like the fall harvest
It has been left
And shriveled on the vine
Soon there will be no trace of it
For it was not preserved in
Diamond cut mason jars
Virtue has rotted
Forgotten in the field
It will be turned under
With the roots
And dug up with
The potatoes
Scrubbed and sliced
And mulled over in
Winter stew
-Sarahlynn ( I thought you would enjoy this after your post.. poetry and stew.. living honest)

Daisy Cottage

You thought right Sarahlynn - I enjoyed it VERY much. Thank you.

Hi Kim,
Does that dinner look delicious or what??? And another cute Ms. Maggie picture...good thing I live up north or I might stop by and steal her away. I finally set up a blog and published it. I'm not too happy with it (its a standard Blogger template) and I am not sure how to fix it. I can't figure out how to center the header and change the font. I have lots to learn - especially to take better photos. It was a beautiful day for my birthday. I hope your day was wonderful too!


Ok I don't like cooking Kim, but I think I can do it! Wish me luck. This reminds me of "hamburger soup". Have you ever had that?
Yum yum.
Hello sweet Maggie
Love Claudie


Lovely images Kim. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Daisy Cottage

I'm off to visit you now Sandy!!!

And Claudie I PROMISE you can do this one.
You will thank Catherine so much too.



Delicious looking soup. I'm going to check out the recipe. And thanks for the dear little picture of Maggie. Dogs are so special, well cats, too, all animals actually.

Lavender Dreams

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

Yum!! I can almost smell it cooking!


I want a Maggie! She sure is adorable and Loosey would love to have one just like her for her friend!


Good morning Kim :)

Maggie is good for my diet, because as soon as I saw her I forgot about the food! It sure does look delicious though :)

Hug that sweet girl for me!

Maggie is such a cutie pie!! Every time I see her picture...I just want to hug her!!


That looks so warm and yummy good!

What a delicious pot of soup. I so agree about dogs being such a comfort. Kim, you made me hungry.


Your soup looks delicious. We eat a lot of soup in the winter. Nothing quite like it to warm you up and nourish you!

Brenda Kula

Heavens, I don't normally immediately think I want a recipe for something I see on a blog. But I did this one. Thank goodness you gave us the link to it!

We are so blessed aren't we? Having fresh food to eat, a warm & safe haven to live in and the unconditional love of our furry friends ~ Heaven on earth!


Yum yum! I feel like I am hungry seeing that super delicious food. Thanks for sharing that link to us. We really appreciated it.

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
