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

That is adorable-I had one that was similar when I was a teen in the 60's. Those and Princess phones were "the thing" back then.


Oh, that is a nice little pink clock. I love those old clocks too. Hope you can keep it. Cindy

Betty Jo

I adore your blog! I grew up in central Florida, born in Lakeland but lived in Aubrundale. Your cottage is absolutely gorgeous!! Hope you don't mind if I link to you from my blog (just opened my blog a few days ago). :0)


Oh no! If only you hadn't said anything to her.How could she not like that sweet little clock? Sounds like me-something I would do.Don't get too attached lol
Poor You!


I love it! Your images of by-gone relics bring back wonderful (and vivid) childhood memories. Like your red 'hand bag', this clock is perfect! Lucky you to find such treasures!!


Oh WHAT a dilemma! To keep or not to keep...


I love the "pink" clock. Growing up as a teenager in the late 60's and early 70's I had the coolest Pink Bedroom! Dark & Light Pink Shag carpeting, white French Provincial furniture and Pink wallpaper and Pink Gingham bedspread and curtains. I loved it! I wasn't even a "girlie girl" but that bedroom made me feel so good with all the pink and pink accessories. I had a pink clock, a pink phone and a pink TV. I wish more than anything that I had pictures of all my stuff from back then.
Thanks for sharing!

You have GOT to keep this little pink clock!
OR you and your sister could have shared custody of the pink clock!
You could have it for a time (pardon the pun) and then your sister has it for a time (I did it again).
Good luck!


One time my sister & I had a similar situation, only it was over a cake plate. We resolved it by finding another just like it on ebay. :)


Such a cute clock. I'm not surprised you love it yourself. Maybe if you tell her how much you love it and look out for another nice clock for her instead, she'll be happy for you to keep it.


Mmmmm...I wish I could find a lovely pink clock like yours to put on my dresser!!!


Kim, I don't know why I wrote "dresser", I meant my pink desk that I just painted!! By the way I love the photo...

That Jill

I'm coming to get MY clock. Get over it, its mine!


Oh, I thought I landed in the wrong blog...I love the new design and I love that pink clock! Very cute! Blessings!


Maybe your sister will let you keep it for a while, then when you feel ready to part with it you could then pass it on.

It is really very cute.

Utterly adorable! With your knack for finding wonderful things, you *know* you'll find something else wonderful on your next trip. Jill wants it, and you know it will give you double the pleasure to give it to her since you'll know how happy you've made her! It's a win-win for the wonderful pink clock!

Vicky Gransee

Love Jill's comments! I want to know how this one plays out! Vicky


I would want to keep the pretty pink clock too!
Glad I only have a brother to buy presents for! Mens presents aren't so interesting!

So so sweet! Love it to bits!! Vintage pink clocks and pink radios are right up my alley!! : )

Your blog looks fabulous!! Loving your banner!! So bright and cheerful!! Like a page froma story book!

Happy New Year!
xoxo Jenny


Oh it is a cute clock, I would want to keep it too. Completely understandable.

Pink does not go with yellow and red. :) Maybe you can share it?


I LOVE your pink clock. I don't have one but that is going to be next on my list in my Treasure Hunt. I found a turquoise Western Bell Princess telephone a few years ago and it is so much fun to decorate with! Isn't it fun to use old things? I like Goodwill and St Vinny's much better than the main stream new stores! Keep up the good work and the fab blogs!


THAT is a FIND! and probably worth a small fortune on ebay:) oh that's right you are not keeping it! :( love that!


No way would I be giving that baby away!


HaHaHa, Kim!
My sister did the same thing. She called me and told me she had a walking cane for my collection but she never did give it to me. One day I was at her house and saw it and asked her if it was the one she got for me and she said "Well, yes, but it doesn't want to go home with you yet".... She kept it for a year or two and then finally gave it to me.
I didn't know your sis lives so close to you. I imagine since you two trade things back and forth, she'll understand if "her" pink CLOCK will be taking it's TIME getting to her house...: )
Mary (Blossomcottage)


my grandmother has that clock :)


absolutely divine!


Well, that's a toughie! Pink works for me if you need to give it to an innocent bystander. :)


I see your pink clock has drawn a lot of attention here. If it speaks to you then it's yours....thats my rule.


What a sweet pink clock!


My sister and I have the same "custody" decisions to wrangle through -- some things just seem to migrate back and forth from our homes!

LOVE the pink-and-perfect clock!


Ooh Kim, that clock is too adorable - I love it! It would look perfect in my bedrom!!! Perhaps you could keep it and find something else for her?! What a coincidence by the way - there's a major pink theme running through several blogs at the moment! Clare x


Oh Kim! I had one just like sat next to my princess phone. Right on my night my teenage bedroom. All yellow and pink.
Well, it DID speak to YOU...hmmm...if it called your name than I say it is YOURS. *smile* But then...maybe your sis will understand! I would...: )


What a beautiful shade of pink!


Kim, that is such a sweet little clock! You are too cute:) I have the same problem...I buy some things with the purpose of giving away or perhaps reselling in the future, but often I have such a hard time parting with my finds! I understand completely!

Also, I wanted to tell you that I always enjoy checking out the links of others that comment on your site. I'm finding a lot of great blogs that way!

Daisy Cottage

Thank you everyone! I'm glad you liked the little clock ~ it is now where it belongs ~ with it's rightful owner! ;-) Maybe someday I'll find another perfectly pink clock. Sniff..Sniff...


Hi Kim!

Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog and what a chuckle I got over your "sister's" clock! Hmmmm, what a delimma you have!

I also couldn't help but smile at all your decorating books; many of the same ones can be found in my collection, too!

Have a good week, Kim!



Love the clock. I see it landed in your sister's house. LOL Can't wait to see your Goodwill store. My DH and I hope to leave next month around the 15th for Flordia. I told him I wanted to see Kim's house and her Goodwill store. LOL


It would be much to my husband's dismay, but you are inspiring me to go thrift shopping! I love your new pink clock!

Crystal T

Adore that pink beauty!!

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
