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

How pretty! I've never seen anything like those boxes. They are really lovely. I went to my favorite antique mall today and I was thinking how much fun it would have been to take you there. You would have been in heaven!



simply stunning!


Absolutely stunning! and what great plans you have for them! Enjoy!


I just love the way you've mixed these textures...lampshades, light fixtures...the possibilites are endless in your hands!


ooh, I love pretty! I have one of those little Italian gold boxes myself and just love it. I'll try and post photos when I can!


You, my dear, are an expert at creating these vignettes. Golly! You could get paid for it.


This blog is almost as much fun as Beauty and the Beast!


Those are beautiful!
I love the way you display things. I am watching and taking notes!



Those tins are so beautiful. I have just started collecting tins too so am very jealous of those three. I really love the way you've displayed them too. Just gorgeous!


I managed to pick up a tin today which I am planning on posting later. Although I am rather pleased with my find I am soo jealous of your goodies(I can't resist vintage jewels either) and the wonderful way you photograph them.


I love the photos of your dream home...that would be my dream home too! Blessings!


Kim, a lovely display as usual, just thought of you and "Daisy Cottage" as I visited a charming blog called Boxwood Cottage--in Germany:


you create the most beautiful pictures of your collections. One of those boxes reminds me very much of a box my grandmother made - carved and painted herself. Same colors and even some of the same pattern I think. I'll have to go find it and drape it with pearls now :)


Oh My Gosh! What a darling cottage you have! Love love love your style. I wanna be like you when I grow up. :)


Thank you all VERY VERY much!! It is so much fun to share with you! And thank you "brother Rick" and "sister Jill" for stopping by my little cottage blog! ;-) xo

Oh and Pauline, I think I love you for sharing that fantastic blog with me! Loved it! Thank you and keep them coming!


Ooh I love the tin. I have one that’s in a beautiful blue with flowers covering it. I too collect old jewelry and decorate my home. On occasion I’ll wear some as well as my thirteen year old daughter.



Your Cottage truly the treasure I have found today!
OMG where have you been!My heart has done the little skip and jump.. you know the one YOU get when you are shopping and find IT! Hummm I see that Pauline has been by.. you wouldn't be her special friend..if so how wonderful!
Your Maggie is so sweet and a good sport..was that a cat tail I saw in one of the photos!! I'll pop in again nice meeting you!


My mama has a box like the pink one on the left- although mama's is blue instead of pink. I really like the pink!!!


Hi Kim,

thank you so much for the gracious comment you've left on my blog today. It was such pleasure to read it and to discover your gorgeous cottage. Nice to meet you and your beautiful home! Big thanks to Pauline for introducing us! :D Of course I don't mind you adding me to your fave blogs, I feel honored! Oh I spot my dear friend Nature Girl here too how nice! I'll sure be back!


Kim, it's impossible to even tell you how much I am enjoying your Daisy Cottage! Your decorating is beautiful and I love to read your writings. It's a joy to know you.


Thank you so much Annabelle, nature girl, Patti, Carol and Donna! NG, that tail belongs to our other dog, Marley. Hmm, he needs his blog debut! Donners, right back at you :-)


so much fun!


As always - perfection. The colors of the pieces makes this small arrangement beautiful. You have such a knack for combining textures and colors. I also collect tins and vintage jewelry. I've also begun collecting vintage postcards (especially of Florida) and aprons. Love the colors.


Thank you Becca & Mimi!


Kim your tin, boxes and jewelry collection are just lovely. And the way you display them just makes me sigh! You have that special knack my friend. How about pinning one of those lovely vintage pins on one of your special pillows too?

Sharon Kay

I just found your blog andd just love it. You have a real knack for blogging and I love all the pictures. I like you love the vintage and cottage look. Come visit me when you have time.

Alison May

Oh my goodness me! I have that very English tin, holding a bundle of dolly pegs and looking deliciously pretty in my laundry room!


I have been enjoying this blog. Is there a new one where this leaves off? I'd love to see more! Cassandra

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
