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 all right I'll give it a go only because we have similar ~HaTeS~ and I don't think it's weird to ~*LoVe pRiNcE*~ I adore him!!! :)NG


Kim, I just discovered your photostream today, I enjoyed seeing all of the photos, thank you for that. Cindy


Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I love your plate of French toast. Simple joy, presented in such a lovely manner.


the Prince revelation is my do you feel about David Bowie?


Hi I'm out of hibernation and playing catch up love Ethel, all the new treasures and Maggie looks adorable.
Hugs RaNae


Wow, you're like The Monk weird. ha ha ha. Jen


Hi Kim, not weird at all - well, not much! :-) Clare x

Maggie! Are you a tag doggie?
Tell your Mommy that French toast looks yummy but Prince looks strange. :)

fairly new to your blog and just thought i'd say hello!
had to comment on the feeling faint on highway syndrome...i've got the exact same thing and never met anyone else with it!! had a strange episode one day as well, now i have major fear of going up that on-ramp!!! feel like a freak about this!!
you've got me in the mood for french toast...if only mine looked as pretty as yours!

Been lurking and love your house and your use of red accent furniture.

Anyway, just had to tell you that I'm the same way about facing doorways. It's totally feng shui not to have your back to doorways. Basically, you don't want to be startled and want to see who's coming. Otherwise, with your back to the door, you'd always be looking over your shoulder, feeling like someone is at your back, or "stabbing you in the back." This is especially important for work office areas. Just an FYI.


You are decidedly NOT weird! Those are just charming little quirky things! The highway thing I can understand. 275 was a busy one as I remember, and an incident like that will scare you.

Oh, I am late is commenting but I LOVE Ethel...I always name our cars and I am a huge I Lve Lucy fan...and the car is so pretty. What a sweet ride! : )

The picture today is so lovely, as always. Yummy french toast and a pretty plate. A wonderful way to start the day.

Enjoy your Sunday...I so love your blog. I look forward to it each day.



I'm a Prince fan too. He's an artist and one of the most innovative and provocative ones out there. He reminds me of Dylan in the way that he explores music.
4 out of the 6 things you've listed are things that describe me too.


I read your 6 weird things there are 3 that I don't think are weird because I feel the same way. Well maybe they are a little weird but therei is a little of that in all of us.
P.S. Your french toast looks yummy.


My kids used to say "Step on a crack and you'll marry a rat" I always used to reply "Too Late"! Then we would all giggle.

I have a friend that faints when her kids get cuts, or hurt in any way... how scarey is that!
Love your photos!

Teresa Sheeley

That french toast looks oh so yummy! I love your list of 6 things, but funny they don't seem weird to me at all! You're adorable!



Your blog is so lovely and ispiring! I just love your beautiful photos.


Loving your blog! Your food looks soooo good & banana pudding sounds fabulous!!


tee hee! I'm a huge Prince fan! He's performing at the Super Bowl.. that's a good reason to watch, isn't it? :o)


Hey! I think I have the same plates as you...I just bought a sugar/creamer and 6 bowls from an antique store and I swear they look the same...was going to post them on my blog last night but forgot, but now I'll have to go check!

Your breakfast looks delicious btw!

:) D


I have to laugh at your 6 weird things...because I share 3 of them with you! HAHAHAHA!! I love the way pears smell & look...but hate the way they taste...yuck! I saw Prince about a year or so ago in concert, and it was probably THE best concert I've ever been to! And I do the same thing with restaurant seating. I also do that with sleeping...I have to sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door...unless I'm in a hotel...then I generally sleep on the side away from the door. HAHAHAHAHA!!


Maggie looks just like my Lu - xox - eb.

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you Fifi!

  • "It's people like yourself that make everything beautiful and worthwhile." ~ 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
