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 my gosh! Look at that, with the veil & all. What a perfect thing for your Daisy Cottage.


Well, picture me Kim! I had a pillbox style floral hat, lo those many years ago. It wasn't exactly like yours, but close!! It was white. I wore it with a navy dress, one Easter, in the mid 60's! Now I am close to my mid 60's! Where did the time go!!

Cute hat and of course, perfect for Daisy Cottage!:-)

The hat does bring back memories of many Easters,many years ago. What a great gift.

I too love your new blog banner!


I just got a hat like that too....and I'm going to take it apart for all the vintage flowers! Seriously, can we wear those? Hmmmm, think not.
Love that new banner! Love it!


What a gorgeous hat, reminds me of something my Grandmother might have worn oh if only I had kept her hats.

Esther Sunday

Yummy is about all I can say! Love it. How will you ultimately display it? On a vintage hatstand? Don't keep us in suspense...
Cheerio, Esther


OMG! That is Too CUTE!! I have a thing for vintage floral hats...and that one is positively ADORABLE!! Oh! I should hang that with your vintage pink daisy dress...they would be perfect together!


Lovely,simply lovely!!!!


Great hat...and banner!

Southern Heart

That hat is makes me happy just to look at it! What a thoughtful gift...


What a wonderful hat -- such a kind gift! It looks like a cake -- so how about sitting it on a pretty cake stand or two? Love the banner -- Kim is truly gifted with the computer magic! :)

The Decorated House

Looks like my post didn't go through but I'm going to try the third time.

I've been looking all over the place for old hats like that. How very sweet of Carol.
But like Charlotte, I want to take them apart! So it's good that the sweet daisy one found you instead of us, for now. :)


How fitting! What a marvelous hat!! What a sweet friend Carol is...


Love the hat, the banner and your delightful blog!


Tiffany Roberts

Oh I simply adore this hat! I collect all things daisy (especially vintage!) and will have to add a hat like this to my wish list!

Love Love Love it!!


I can't imagine anything better suited to Daisy Cottage than that hat. How sweet! Love your new, new banner by the way.


I LOVE it!!! Daisies are my favorite flower. I'd be wearing this hat everywhere I went.

God bless :)


So that was you I heard squealing with delight the other day ;-) The hat has your name all over it for sure.


Nicole Reed

I just bought a big pot of those daisies for the garden! Now when I look at them I will think of your hat! Wonder if I can fashion my flowers into a little chapeau?


LOVE your new banner!


That is SO SWEET! You couldn't wear that hat without feeling young-at-heart :)


Awesome hat.....just perfect for Daisy makes me think of my great Aunt Lil...she always got a new hat for Easter. I remember as a little girl my Mother taking her shopping... she would try on every hat in the store. What a great time we had.

Thanks for the memory...can't wait to see where the hat ends up !!!

Kathy :)

Allie from Minneapolis

It's just darling and makes me think of Doris Day. Would love to wear hats and gloves.


oh isn't it so gorgeous...just lovely!

Mrs. Staggs

Well, this is perfect for you! I can just see you, driving around in Ethel, wearing this hat and a pair of white gloves with your pocketbook sitting on the seat beside you.

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

  • "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!

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
