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 lovely finds! Enjoy


There's not much better in the day than a well loved tea cup!


These are gorgeous. I really love the colours together. The pillowcase fabric is so pretty. Definitely very sweet.


Kim, I came here to see if you'd added any posts for the new year, and you didn't disappoint! I love the pillowcase, teacup and potholders. It's amazing how you can take ordinary items and put them together in such a beautiful way. Happy New Year to you!


I popped on over & am delighted to see that you have posted! Those are great finds. I particularly love the pillowcase.

Thrifting is so much fun. When I see a post like this, I want to hop in the car & head straight for the Goodwill or Salvation Army!


These are lovely. The roses just make my heart melt :)

Very pretty finds! I also love thrifting, there is something so rewarding about rescuing a beautiful something and reusing it, re-loving it. It makes me feel so good (and it's super cheap, which is nice too!)

Hi Kim, I love this post, you found some lovely little things and I am always partial to teacups! It is funny, but when I was in Goodwill Saturday, I too picked up a very pretty pink embroidered pillow case. I love flowers on bed linen too!! Have a good day. HTH Janet


Such sweet and pretty finds. Your photography is always so lovely and a bit always makes me smile! Your blog is a bright spot in my day.
Thank you!


What finds! We couldn't go thrifting together, we would be after the same stuff;P



Kim, You must have a great Goodwill near you! You finds the neatest vingettes and than your photo skills make them look priceless. Love all your finds.

I'm so glad you posted! I check every day. :O) Your new goodies are precious. I haven't thrifted in a couple months - gasp - I look forward to it soon. Oh...any chance we can know your Christmas Cinnamon Cake recipe? Please?


One thing for sure is that you do have an eye for bargains and treasures! Your NEW camera is working well for you!


Wonderful finds! I have found quite a few of those old pillowcases as well. I picked up a few in a brown and white floral the other day. That old percale is sooo soft especially the ones Fieldcrest use to make. What room will the treasures live in? Oh and Kim what type of camara did your dh get you? I need a new one. Thanks, cherry


When I opened your blog today and saw this picture, I immediately fell in love with the teacup! Your vignettes are always calming for me. Thanks for sharing!

Daisy Cottage

Thank you sweeties!
Lula's ~ I WISH I had a recipe for Christmas Cinnamon Cake.. maybe you are thinking of one of the other "Kim's" ~ if you get it, you must share with me!
Cherry, hubby got me a Canon Powershot A540. I LOVE it! As I've said, I'm clueless with its' mechanics.. I just turn the flash off, zoom in and shoot. :-)


As soon as I saw your first picture I loved it! Such pretty colours and such lovely treasures.


Such sweet finds at such sweet prices, such fun.

Lula's Hardt

Silly me! The Christmas Cinnamon Coffee Cake is from Turkey Feathers.
I'll go back and ask for the's a gorgeous cake!


oooh! Yes good finds love the colors together and thrifting is the best treat for me lately as finding the time to fit it in is not what it use to be* Your page is eyecandy! and that cake! OY yum!


Gorgeous finds! That pillowcase! That teacup! The colors are delicious. I know you will find lovely uses for all of them.


Those colors are beautiful... and I love that teacup... who wouldn't be happy sipping from that cup? ;) I had an entire baby blanket that looked like that yellow pot holder!!!! :)


Hi Kim, you have put together some lovely things, as always! Clare x


Love your photo angle. Just like I could have done myseklf,lol


Just yummy!!
They look perfect together.


Those colors really look lovely together. I particularly love pink and yellow/gold together. Cindy


Kim, Thanks for my morning smile! That darling little tea cup shines in your home. I remember that type of pillowcase from somewhere back in my memory. It sure found a good home.


Pretty finds, Kim! I had to stop by & see what you're up to for the New Year & you never disappoint. I love all your vintage finds & it makes me want to go thrifting or yardsaling real soon! You sure have a way of putting things together so well, as always. Would love to spend an afternoon shopping & hanging out with you!


Lovely finds! Just just love old pillowcases!

Teresa Sheeley

Beautiful! I always enjoy looking at the treasures you seem to find. Love that pillowcase!!


I'm a bit of a hedonistic, loving pleasure for pleasure's sake, because it delights the eye, the soul, lighting a spark of joy. Your wonderful finds and the photo of them lights that spark of joy in my spirit. I don't care if you "use" them, really; their use, for me, has already been fulfilled ... they've provided me with simple, pure pleasure, just as they are.


Lovely! Makes me want to run out to a thrift store! You are taking some gorgeous photos with your new camera!


Thrifting is always so much your treasures!


Such pretty finds! It`s fun isn`t it :)



Simply beautiful! I love your thift shop treasures!


Nice rose disign, I know ist, my friend us it.
And the cup is beautiful.

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
