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

I just found your blog a couple of weeks ago and I love it! I live a couple of hours away from you, I think, and I am so jealous of the wonderful thrift stores you visit - ours are nowhere near as "fruitful" as the ones you visit. :)

Congrats on your 100th!



I found your blog while recouperating from a broken ankle. I love your recipes, and your decorating ideas. Keep it going!


Visiting your blog is like visiting my fantasy house--all gingham checks, fun finds, and sunny attitude. Thanks!

laurel sauls

Hi Kim!
Thank you so much for sharing your sweet home with us. I just love to check every day and see what you have found or done. I love the new checked curtains on the front door. So cute! :)


Hi Kim,
I have really enjoy coming to blog. It has inspired me do some updating on my home.

I purchased my small ranch house about 5 years ago. I have very slowly been redoing it. When I purchase the the home it was stuck in the 1960's & 1980's. It was an one owner home until I purchased it. And they had done very little to the house.

I have so much to do & little time or extra money. But I still keep plugging on. My next project is pulling up 2 layers of carpet from the kitchen floor and repair the broken tiles where they placed tacking strips. I have not decided on what the new floor cover will be yet. I just know it will not be new carpet. This will be a big project & the kitchen will be in a mess or a long time.

Once again I wanted to say I have really enjoyed your blog. I just hope one day I will have may house feeling light & airy and pulled together as yours. Boy is it going to take a lot of work to get there.


Diane Duda

Happy 100!
Looks like I found my way here just at the right time! I've only been here a few times so far, and have already found so much inspiration. We should be giving you gifts!
Thanks so much for welcoming us all into your home!


KIm, i am so happy to have found your blog- you have no idea how it brightness my day! I look forward to popping in each day~ It really is like * visting* an old friend!! Congratulations on 100 posts i am looking forward to a 100 more!! :) Hope you have a wonderful day!!

I sure wish I'd been around the blog world earlier--you inspire me to just take off and be creative! I adore Daisy Cottage. Now will that last sentence get me a few extra entries? Because I'm all about the apron! lol Seriously, congratulations. ~Stacey


I have enjoyed all 100. Your journaling is wonderful and of course the cottage and contents. You find the best goodies. Congrats! Can't wait for the next 100!


I've just recently found your blog but enjoy it immensely! Although my current decorating style isn't cottage (although I adore cottage style) we use the same colors in our home. My walls are a golden yellow and red is predominant throughout. (o:

Congratulations! I'm glad you have a picture of the cottage on the blog. You seem to have quite an eye for very beautiful things. I wish I could find some nice stuff in NY but it is quite difficult.
Keep up the cheerfulness, it's a blessing amidst the craziness of the city.


Congratulations from an Australia on your 100th post Kim. You site was recommended to me by my daughter, I love the fact that my daughters all enjoy the same creative blogs as I do. (does that make them old fashioned or me 'with-it'?)
Your blog adds lightness, interest and good humor to a sometimes stressful world. Thanks.


Wow! This contest sure drew people out. I have so enjoyed your blog. The way you stage your house and the great bargains you find are all so interesting. Happy 100th! Keep 'em coming.


Whew Hoo! Happy 100th day! Your blog was inspirational for me in deciding to start my own pages. Your creativity is inspiring. I love how even the smallest trinket can bring you great JOY! Thank you for sharing your home with us. Come visit me soon! Hugs, Patti

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 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

  • "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!

  • "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!
