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

How dog-gone cute is Maggie? I want to put her in my pocket and take her home! :)


OK...Maggie tilt you head just a little to your right. Perfect! Your so photogenic.

She is a pretty girl, isn't she?


Awwwww, I had no idea that Maggie was so tiny!
I wish Maggie could meet my Daisy. She looks like a small hound. She, also, gives us those big-eyed looks.

I love seeing your sette with the ruffle shower curtain, again. LOL



Okay, now this is just ridiculously cute! I want to come over and talk about cottages and great finds and critters! Maggie is so sweet looking. She is the kind of dog my daughter has wanted for awhile.I live quite a distance from you (Pacific Northwest), so I have to just be content to visit through your wonderful blog!


That's right Maggie. If they mistreat you again, just yap and we'll come running!

Maggie, Freddie Girl can totally relate to being sent to the dreaded FLOOR. She said to tell you not to worry, 'cause when you get kinda old...they'll feel guilty for all the times they told you to go do something else. Just keep looking cute, it'll get them every time.

This is a note from my dog here in Australia called Oscar and he is a pug x maltese - "Maggie milk it for all your got , it sure works here! LOL" Woof!


How simply sweet does dear Maggie look??? You must give her a big o'l smooch for us ! :) She is such a pretty little girl ~
Thank You for * sharing * her with us Kim!

The Feathered Nest

Maggie does look happier. She's so cute she should have her own blog!



That is such a gorgeous photograph and of course everyone LOVES Maggie.


What a sweetie-pie face -- just look at those eyes! Lots and lots of love and cozy days for Maggie at Daisy Cottage ..... and four cats here at Rosemary Cottage send along their best wishes and regards to her! All four cats have had their breakfast and are at the windows admiring the rain .... at a safe distance, of course! LOL!

Ahh, there...she looks much happier now. :)


Maggie is just the cutest! can almost see her little smile!


Oh, she just too cute. Isn't she a lucky girl to live in Daisy Cottage with her swwt mommy.


And I just love Maggie to pieces...her sweet little face grabs me everytime you post a pic of her, Kim! I'd love another dog, but after being dogless the last year and 1/2, we're enjoying that too. I end up petting all the dogs in the neighborhood when I go for walks.



She is the cutest dog!
Love the decor.


I LOVE your little girl! She looks just like my Henry! Doxies are the funniest kids, aren't they? They have a certain way of looking at life, and that's just the way it should be, every day! I have been reading your blog for awhile now - it is such a breath of fresh air!
If you get a chance, please come see my doxies - I have 3.
Have a great weekend!

Mrs G

Thank Goodness Maggie has recovered from her terrible ordeal!

But I think she will probably still need TLC for a long time just to ensure there is no relapse :)

Betty Jo

Awww . . . Maggie is so incredibly beautiful and I love her too! What a gorgeous porch she has to enjoy. xoxo


Maggie, you are so sweet I wish I could kiss you. I am glad you are having a better day and hope you never, never have to lay on that hard floor again.


Well, Miss Maggie if you ever come to Texas, please stop my house and visit with Trixe Gertrude and Peggy Sue. They are a mother-daughter pair that lives in Round Rock Texas. They look very much like you. The have a big sister who is a Basset Hound. Her name is Dixie Bell. I bet you could all be friends and have some fun with the kids here...Take care. Your blog is wonderful. Roxie


Miss Maggie looks very pretty sitting out there on your lovely porch! I hope she is enjoying some cool spring breezes!


hello Maggie from Luna!

xox - eb.


What an absolutely lovely place to spend the morning! I'm envious! By the way, I love your bedroom as well.


i have said it before and i will say it again......
Maggie - i love you xxxx


I think that Maggie was saying, "put down that camera and come over here and sit down by me"! She is gorgeous, and I'm sure a very good friend.


What a cutie cakes!

Bethany Hissong

Very adorable... my Ellie would love to meet her! ;)


Maggie you are just the sweetest little dog! I could just hug and hug and hug you!! Shhh... the cats are listening and there may be some hissy jealosy ..hugs NG


Your little Maggie is just too cute!! What a lovely space you have created on your porch. The ruffled shower curtain in just perfect.


Now that's more like it! She looks like a very happy pup now!

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
