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

It is a perfect tea pot Kim. What a wonderful friend you have! I can just about hear the kettle whistling...Want some company? I'll bring the banana bread!


:) :) :)

This is the first time I've been the subject of a blog entry. :) I'm so glad you like it - I've enjoyed your blog so much, when I saw that teapot it was obvious immediately where it needed to live.



I've heard that just looking at the color yellow can make your happiness level go up. It certainly seems to be the case here, since a simple teapot is making me smile! Oh, and I love that red chair!


The teapot is just right for your yellow cottage. I have the same one in green and just love it. That style, called the 5-cup Rosette made by Shawnee Pottery, dates back to 1941!

Thank you for your nice comments on The T-Cozy today. You must have a lot of catching up to do and I appreciate you stopping by.

Susan was right--that teapot was made for Daisy Cottage.


What a sweet gift from a dear friend -- somehow I feel inspired to drag out my vintage tablecloths.... hmmm, gazing at your soothing vignette makes me feel like gussying up the joint. Amazing.


what a beautiful teapot such a great colour I have a few vintage teapots that my stepdad gave me and I love them


Goodness haven't you been busy with graduations and birthdays, you must be so proud, and thrifting chanderliers. Yes I think it would look great with some vintage jewels and you can change them anytime you get bored. So now you can sit and enjoy your afternoon tea from that truly lovely teapot.


That teapot is adorable. I LOVE that tablecloth!

What a lovely teapot, aren't friends just the best?!? What a lovely tablecloth and what wonderful books!!! I have a table on my balcony, (I don't have a porch), I love to sit there and enjoy my morning coffe to the music of the birds. Time seems to slow down and life seems so sweet during those stolen moments. hugs, Cindy S.

What a gorgeous teapot! It's just perfect for Daisy Cottage. The table looks wonderful there and your photos are super. So glad you managed a little rest time. xoxo


Oh it's just lovely!

What a sweet friend you have. (o:



Kim - you have to have one of the most inviting porches EVER !!! What a delightful yellow teapot from a good friend... A thoughtful gift that will not only remind you of a wonderful friendship, but will enhance relaxing times on your beloved porch..... I also LOVE your red chair... can you tell us a little more about it?? janice


Your porch is so beautiful and the tea pot is PERFECT!


All I can say is WOW! I thought your porch was "perfect" before - I didn't think it could get any better. I was wrong! This is icing on the cake. You rock Kim and what a lovely gift to receive from a sweet friend. Thanks for sharing and making my day.



We are SO much alike.....I got "lost" in your pictures


What a great spot to have on your front porch!

The Decorated House

Lovely teapot, and it's so right at home now isn't it? That's the same company which made my little green vase. I love the glazes they used. Wish I could find more of the lime green.

Is that the most wonderful front porch sitting area? Yes! I can feel that refreshing breeze while I look at your photo. Missed you!


What a sweet teapot and lovely little gifts. That card is tooooo cute. I love your porch and would love sitting there, enjoying the breeze, a cool drink and a great decorating book or a friend to share it with and talk about decorating.


What a special teapot! Could you please tell me the name of the two books that you have opened. I am intrigued by both of the pages. It might have something to do with my love of antiques and our pickle castor collection.

The Glitter Fairy

Wow! What a lovely friend, and what a lovely time YOU are going to have. Enjoy!


Sweet! I love all of your photos!


What a perfect companion the sweet little yellow teapot will be for your little green teapot!


I found your blog a few weeks ago, and ever since, I have had this wonderfully nagging urge to go thrifting.

This is such a beautiful little corner of the internet. Thanks for all the loveliness!

Bethany Hissong

I LOVE your yellow and red color scheme!! I have that in my bedroom and am slowly using it around the house! I also have a yellow just makes the cloudy days seem sunnier :)


I really enjoy your blog. You are such a decorating inspiration. I have gradually been "stealing" ideas from you for my own decorating. I would like to change over to a cottage look a little at a time. When I go to thrift stores now, I look at things with a different eye. Thanks for all the beautiful pictures. I am learning a lot. JoAnn


That teapot is so cute, so cute in fact I have a blue one just like it. I got it at a flea market.
I love all of your pictures. That was really nice of your friend.
Have a great weekend,

Southern Heart

What a sweet and thoughtful looks so pretty in that space, and I love your pairings of yellow and red. What an inviting and relaxing spot!

Hope that you enjoy your weekend,



Oooh, I love your special teapot. I collect yellow pottery and would love to find one like that. What a special friend. It looks perfect on your table. You are an inspiration to keep working on my little home. Wish I lived close enough to stop by for a "spot" of tea!

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

I'd love to sit on your porch, have a cup of tea from that cute pot and talk about daughters growing up. Pretty porch, pretty tea pot and pretty girl!

The Feathered Nest

What a lovely, thoughtful friend! That really is the most perfect shade of yellow!



Oh! isn't she beautiful..what a sweet little teapot..I love it! Have a wonderful weekend & thanks for sharing.


It's all so lovely Kim, and so inviting. I always love all the colors you have, and that teapot is great! It fits right in.


Once again, I am inspired by both your creativity and your passion! I would love to hear your considerations on my new couch if you could stop by for a minute. Hugs, Patti


What a great teapot and lovely gift! Yellow is one of my favorite colors...and the color of your daisy cottage...very appropriate.


What a perfectly pretty yummy yellow terrific teapot!


Hi Kim,

What a lovely cheery teapot - and so perfect for you! You've made a lovely colourful spot, it looks so inviting!

I've just read your previous post, you've been having a wonderful time haven't you?

I LOVE your yellow chandelier! I saw a multi-coloured chandelier recently and was very tempted - but our ceilings are so low we'd be walking into it!

As ever, you create a bright and cheerful home and I only wish I could visit in person!

PS. Love your books, they look exactly like the sort of books I'd enjoy!

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
