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

Oh Kim, I am in the mood to curl up there right now! Things are so hectic here with painters banging ladders all over the house, dirty windows, bits huddled up everywhere, your little sunny spot relaxed me by just looking at it. Wish it were closer, I would bring a book and a spot of tea and sit a spell. As usual, your attention to details with your accessories makes it even more beautiful.

Kim, I love Sunny Spot!! The new pillows are wonderful. This is a beautiful corner in your beautiful home!
I've visited your blog a couple times...this is my first post, though.

*waving hi* Pauline and Pat! Thank you! Wish you both could come by for some hot coffee or tea - it is actually cold here! ;-)


What a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the sun even on a cold day. Daisy Cottage is oh so beautiful and your photographs are gorgeous.


You know I just love that fun and colorful fabric! It reminds me so much of the painting I have above my fireplace:) Just lovely, Kim!


How beautiful was it today? Aaaaahh...and it is reflected so wonderfully in your picture. I missed how Kristi found the same fabric at her GoodWill. What are the odds? It was refreshing to come sit a spell with you!


Aah Kim how relaxing and enjoyable your sunroom must be! I love how Kristi remembered your fabric and found it in her thrift store so many hundreds of miles away. Your village is filled with many lovely people like Jill and Kristi who do the nicest things. And then you use your talent and make it all look perfect.


I just stumbled onto your blog. Love it! Your cottage is beautiful. Love the yellow and red. So happy! I am very envious! I hope you don't mind if I continue to visit!

That Jill

You are such a silly girl. You idea girl, me worker bee.


Kim, I LOVE seeing the fabric in it's "new life"! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw those curtains hanging there. I knew they were destined for a new home. :) It's so nice to see them transformed and most of all loved!


I remember when Kristi found that fabric for you. Thanks for sharing the finished results!
That is a great spot to unwind.


Love the fact that the fabric was found on two different occasions and the results are wonderfully warm and meaningful. Lovely job.

Annabelle =^..^= xo


You really know how to make a home ... I love warm, sunny spots to sit, read and write. It's clear that your home is decorated with a lot of love.


I would love a sunroom. We hav the dream to build one off our dining room but we haven't the money yet. It will eventually be there. I love the fabric on the cushions. Gorgeous.


You have captured a magical moment with your camera. It glows with warmth and says, "come, sit, relax and just be". I love it. You have been Blessed with many talents.


I am a fabric fanantic...if I could only sew I would be whole! LOL Love the colors and how wonderful to have a friend who spotted more and sent it to you.

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!

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
