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 couldn't comment on your empty nest post. My fingers were clutching a kleenex!

Our job is to push our little chicks out of the nest~ but it is not easy. Of course it is also not easy when they come home... again & again =D
Thanks for sharing your happy things


Oh my what wonderful goodies you received:-). The book is especially adorable.
Have a great day!


Great stuff!
Sorry you're missing your girl! Here's hoping the time flies by until she returns!
God bless :)


I went to your last post to get up to speed, & ohhhhhh, Maggie says it all for you, doesn't she? Shannon is missed big time. Glad your blogging buds have come through with understanding, & wow ~ look at your sweet & happy things today! Am lovin' anything pink, & am so glad you won Helle's giveaway! And the book Jennifer sent is darlin'. Enjoy!!! :-)

That's a wonderful teapot she sent you. So many pretty things! Enjoy your sweet happy things!



Love all of your treasures. They are all beautiful. You are a lucky girl.
Have a wonderful day!
Your friend,


Hi Kim......Thought I would pop in for a visit to see what's shaking @ Daisy Cottage..I am never disappointed. What lovely the fun begins huh?? finding just the right spot for them.

Have fun....
Kathy =)

Helle Greer

You are sooo welcome...
I'm so happy the little teapot will be in such a beautiful place.
Have a glorious day.


What a wonderful abundance of happy things!


Lots and lots of pink....I love all your pink treasures. Go to my blog and see my latest pink treasure.


So how's my girl Maggie today? Are we going to have to get her some puppy prozac?


Woohoooo! Now that's the motherlode of goodness! And you deserve it!


What lovely things you won! I'll bet it cheered you up a little. I missed your empty nest post, but still would like to comment.Speaking from experience,I can tell you, Shannon will come home again. It's the hardest time in the beginning, but little by little, it does get better and you will get to see her blossom. Just hang in there, she'll be back before you know it! Poor Maggie though, looks like she needs a good hug too! Double hugs all around then!


Hey, Kim
These are such pretty's a thoughtful blog world, isn't it?

Your last post was so touching. I'm sure your girl will always come every way. My little lady starts kindergarten in August, and I'm already having pangs. It's a bittersweet time.


Betty Jo

Awwww . . . what precious, precious goodies for a precious, precious person. I adore the teapot and the book is awesome. I emailed you about the thank you card--what a lovely, sweet surprise. Do you ever receive a thank you card from someone that is so sweet you feel you need to send a thank you card back to them? That's how I felt. xoxo

tea time and roses

Hi Kim...

Congratulations on your win! They all look so beautiful and I love the book... Enjoy Enjoy...



You've received some truly lovely gifts.
I know how you and Maggie are feeling. I was there a couple of years ago when my son left for school. It's such a hard time, but it does become better.
Take care Kim.


Oooo, Kim those are lovely treasures indeed. Made my eyes pop!


Oh what goodies! Helle is a hoot! :-)

Bethany Hissong

I saw that French General label... I love their things but never ordered from them. You are a lucky girl! ;)

The Decorated House

Fabulous Gifts!!!! What sweet and kind people. I hope they helped fill the nest with a tiny bit of fun. Did Maggie get a treat, too? I think she needs one. :)

The French Nest


I came across your blog while visiting Rosemary, and have loved looking through all of your past posts...your blog is gorgeous!

Such sweet little goodies you received! I saw the French General label out of the corner of my lucky girl!


Gypsy Purple-Chamara

But you are a lucky girl!!!

karla nathan

That is certainly a pretty book. I need to go check out Jennifer, she and I look like we have some things in common!


I just read about your daughter going away to college. I understand what you and Maggie are going through. My daughter is also going to college this fall. It is bittersweet how the years fly by so fast yet I am so very proud of her. Sophie (our family dog) and I will be waiting patiently as well.

*Sigh* Where do the years go?


I love the pink and happy and sweet things! I just had to come over to Daisy Cottage this morning for my cottage fix, LOL! Your post about your college daughter...oh boy, my girls are entering 4th and 5th and THAT's about to kill me(they move "upstairs" at school and that's a milestone...snif, snif.....they grow so fast...I cannot even imagine college right now but I remember going off to college and being sooo excited but really missing my Mom so we always stayed in touch. Oh, if you have a minute stop by my blog...I've posted some pics of a sweet little cabin we stayed in in'll appreciate the quaintness and beauty! Have an awesome day!!!


You sure have received some wonderful things. That book is beautiful! People are just so nice. It's one of the best things about the internet...we get to 'meet' some wonderful, generous people we would not have ever known years ago.




Hi Kim!
Oh that empty bedroom of your post below looks very similar to the empty bedroom I have in my house. Same color walls, same color comforter, and the same sad looking puppy eyes that lay on it from time to time. There is also a little lonely calico cat in there too. It does get a little easier, until they come home for a visit and then have to leave again. I am on my second lonely year now and honestly, it's okay, it gets better!

And besides, you have lovely people sending you awesome gifts to keep you happy and feeling loved! You got some pretty cool things!



How fun you won Helle's treasures! Who knew going to get the mail would be sooooo much fun! This is a sweet time to be pampered!


Hi Kim, you've received some wonderful goodies there, you lucky person. xxx

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you 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
