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

What a beautiful, darling cottage! It's wonderful to read about how you found your way here.

I found you through "Cottage By the Sea", and will be checking in with you daily as I blog along, too. Best regards! Meg


Thank you Janice! ((hugs))

Thank you Meg! I am not able to make a post on your blog as it won't let me, but wanted to tell you that your cottage is precious! I enjoyed your blog and will visit again! :-)


Wow! I felt like I was right there with you on the front porch...sipping some coffee in one of those comfy chairs. A talent for decor as well as writing! You never cease to amaze me Kim!!


Love the red dresser, Kim. You make me want to get out the paint and reinvent some of my run down furniture.



I just love your blog and your lovely yellow cottage! I will definately be back to "sit for a while"!


You have a beautiful home!!! I love yellow houses.


I'm so happy to have come across your blog! I too dream of living in a cottage. But chances are, it won't happen. Which doesn't stop me from enjoying reading about and looking at any/all cottage things.

And I so love it, that you share so many pictures of your dream cottage. I'll be sure to come back again.


Such a lovely post about your lovely home. You are living my dream. I'm in a mid-century longing for a cottage just like yours! I'm blogrolling you so I can come here to sigh & dream.

I'm sitting here with my coffee reading through your wonderful archived posts. This is my favorite! I'm so happy you found your Daisy Cottage and are so willing to share your joys there with us in blogland. Thanks so much!!

This is the first time that I have read this post and it is PERFECT!


I saw the article in Romantic Homes about your lovely blog. I didn't even know what a blog was but decided to take a look. I almost fell off my chair when your lovely cottage appeared and the wonderful music started playing. I have come for a visit everyday since. I am so happy to have found you and the other ladies who share their lives on an almost daily basis. You all have been so inspiring. I'm thinking of starting a blog myself. If I can figure out how to do it! Anyway congratulations on your first anniversary and thanks for making my life a little brighter. Sue


I love your blog site, I enjoy the music. I started reading your blogs a few months back. I didn't know there was so many crafters, thrifters, collectors out there. I thought I was the only packrat of crafts and thrifty stuff, thats what my husband calls me. But he takes me out every Saturday mornings so that I can go hunting for items, I love to collect. As a matter of fact today I stumbled a yard sale and got a whole bag full of vintage cross stitch samplers, fabric and some wonderful embrodierd samplers one was with an American flag with roses and the other said silver threads among te gold with a web done in silver with autumn leaves. All for $2 how lucky, I feel. Lots of luck with your cottage, I wish I had one just like yours. Happy last day of summer! Love ya!

I stumbled upon this Blog the other day by seeing it link on a separate site. I'm happy I did! I'm just now gonna start reading through it all from the very beginning.

So far, I'm quite picqued with interest, and will keep on reading until my eyes go sore and watery.

beautiful cottage by the way! It's also a dream of mine to own one just like it.

Lovely house! Thanks for posting this. Beautiful color.

I found your page last night. I started a blog a few years ago and have only recently begun to tinker w/it as it has now resparked my interest. Maybe it's because I've had time on my side since my youngest was born three months ago. In any case, I'm new at it and so I've been stumbling through pages for days now which is how I stumbled onto you. I love your page. It's stood out above all the others for me because of your about me section. I love that story. I'm in the thirty-something/ranch house stage in my life and I've dreamed of owning an old jewel of a home for as long as I can remember so you've given me hope if not a little perspective on patience in waiting on my dream to come true. Thank you : )

Kim Henneke-Singer

I love your from-the-heart story of how the Daisy Cottage came to be! I relate to you and your site. I have always loved older homes and those beckoning front porches with the flowers in the spring/summer and pumpkins in the fall. I, myself, used to drive by scenic and beautiful neighborhoods and look at the homes as a joyful way to pass some time. My home is always full of decorating and home magazines stacked in a basket. I love to sit with a cup of coffee or tea and browse and dream. Also, must say that "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" is one of my favorite songs. I have even told my family that when I die, hopefully many years away and after a very full life, I want that song played at my funeral! HA Thank you for writing a beautiful tribute to your home. Dreams really do come true!
Sincerely, Kim


Hi Kim I'm rereading your old posts which must be my third or forth time now and each time given me so much happiness and inspirations. Hope all is well with you Kim. Love,Boom

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
