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

They look fabulous with their new coat of red, the entire display looks awesome. I am inspired to make myself my own mirror wall...only with my favorite color- bright green!


LOVE that! What a great idea - and I so love the red...Brilliant!


They look fab. I've started to collect mirrrors for a display in the living room to help lighten it up- love the impact of them all being the same color I'll have to do that also give mine all the same finish once the collection is complete.


Hi Kim, You have the same love of colour as me and I really do love that red! I was also rather taken with the banana pudding on your previous post - it looked delicious! Clare x

Those look great. Just love em! Great idea.


Oooo!!! These look so fabulous on that wall, Kim!! Of course, you KNOW I'm partial to a little bit of red here & there! ;-)


Love the red mirrors! I've enjoyed reading your blog.Carol


Red + yellow do pretty good. The shape of these frames are perfect! Love it!


Kim, girl, you do have VISION! Love those mirrors~


well, you know I LOVE red!
what a great idea! I agree the red looks so warm and complimentary on that great yellow wall!


This is awesome! I am inspired to do the same! :)

Tina Smith

Red mirrors, white ironstone, and black books against a yellow wall...I've got goosebumps!

Your good Kim!

The Decorated House

Very nice, touches of red always look so good in your home.
I love all those white pieces!
I'm closing my eyes so I am not tempted to buy more of them when they show up. Any of them with lids just call out to me, too.


Such inspiration...keep it up, Kim


Just so pretty Kim! You are truly gifted at have the "art of accessorizing" down to perfection!
Your colors just call out to me...I love what you have done in your home. It is truly a HOME in every sense of the word.
If we get back to Tampa in the near future, I will definately let you know! I would love that...
Take care and have fun with your home!
Love and hugs,


Wonderful! LoVe the books stacked in levels with the white ornaments against the red! So creative as always!


Everything goes together so well. You did a great job with your display.

So pretty...I love those white pieces too! I can't resist the whites serving pieces. I have several white pieces but my most treasured ones are the little tureens. I tried your chocolate cake and it was enjoyed by all. Love the new wheels too!


So perfect for Daisy Cottage. Great idea.


The red paint makes a stunning statement. Really like this!


I am completely blown away. Such a simple and inexpensive idea and your walls looks like a million dollars. Your red mirrors are just icing on the cake.

Those mirrors look great..can't believe how inexpensive they were!
Love the red on the gold walls.


That looks fantastic! I have a mirror wall too, all my mirrors are venetian.
Did you have any problems getting the paint to adhere to the plastic?

Teresa Sheeley

Love it! Love it! Love it! You are so creative, I love to see what you come with next.



Love the red, but what I really am in love with in the picture are your amazing collection of white china (they look like soup tureens). I love white ironstone and those remind me of that - so lovely!!

Nicole Reed

You must check out my sister Andrea's blog "Under a Blue Moon". I think you two are kindred spirits! She has expressed the exact same sentiments to me regarding Target and Walmart!

Leigh Ann

They look gorgeous. What a brainstorm! Cheers! LA


From plastic gold to red and bold! Love the way they all have a bit of frilliness to them. A beautiful vignette with the white ironstone pieces set on various levels atop the book stacks. If you had a book of your photos, I'd be first in line to buy it. And get your autograph - lol!


Gee thanks, now you will having me spend more money! just teasing :) I love the mirrors and I never would have guess plastic mirrors could look so good! My goodwill always has a ton of them but I pass them by, maybe I will have to give them a second look.


I too love grouped mirrors.

And with re-doing our downstairs *Powder Room,* I'm thinking of painting the medicine chest {oval} mirror, a bright red!



You are truly amazing! What an awesome idea! I cannot belive the frames are plastic. There is nothing a can of spray paint can't do! Kudos! It looks beautiful. xo Chrissy

Love is Daisy Cottage Red..they need to name a new color at MSL. xoC


Kim, my favorite color is red, and I love the red mirrors! Thanks for providing such a tranquil, beautiful place for us to come and rest during an otherwise hectic day.


This is so wonderful! I'm in awe!


What a wonderful idea and they look amazing...Nel


I love it!


Wow!! Love it...and I'm usually a beachy, watery blues girl!!

Fun as always...I think I had better go and add you to my links..I always lose my way!!




I would love to purchase one of your red mirrors. Is there any way I could? I would love to!

Suzanne Harmon

I love your beautiful blog. Eveything. The music, red and yellow colors, the recipes, and of course Maggie the "wonder dog!" I'm now checking Daisy Cottage blog daily. Hugs, from Suzanne in Newport Beach, Calif. P.S. I just adore your bungalow cottage!

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

Thank You Dear Sis!

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
