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

These are amazing buys.

Betty Jo

Each piece is wonderful! I really, really need to get out to some yard sales. Looking forward to seeing where these beauties live in Daisy Cottage.

Hmmm . . . there will be a lot of hammering around your house. Have your ear plugs ready. xoxo


What great finds and those prices!! They will clean up nicely, looking forward to the pictures. xo, suzy


Wow, great pieces at great prices. Can't wait to see more pictures.

Susan Ramey Cleveland

The white table is bautiful. Lucky you!


The table finds are awesome and the price even more so. I would hate to tell you what I paid for some small tables in this area. I think I should move to Florida. The "pickings" seem to be much better in your area. LOL

Can't wait to see Daisy Cottage with a new roof!


$3!?!? Those would be bargains at 5x the price! Good for you and your hunting skills!


I want to shop where you shop! What great finds!

Bethany Hissong

I love the tables! We keep getting furniture catalogs with high prices... I love that there are things being "loved" twice for as little as $3.00.
Your green roof sounds beautiful too!


wow !! love all your recent finds !!! awesome tables - makes me want to go thrifting !!! take care,


I LOVE that white table!!! Great finds.


So happy you're back Kim! Will you be my personal shopper? :)


Well, I'm seriously considering moving now! LOL! I very rarely find anything so nice at such a wonderful price.

That was very nice of Teresa to send you those canisters. They're perfect for your home!



I love the little white table. Yard sales around here just don't seem to have such wonderful stuff.


Those look great!! Awesome finds. :)

Vicky G.

Love that you put your wine corks in a dish. We put ours, and we have many, in a big glass bowl we got as a wedding gift 19 years ago. We didn't really know what to do with it, but the corks look really cool in it. Love all the new furniture you got. looking forward to seeing the new green roof. Vicky G.

Esther Sunday

Gosh, Kim - $3. bucks? Steal of the year! Precious and your display with the white piece is lovely. Don't forget to share pics of the new roof too! Love, Esther

What wonderful pieces you found. That's my kind of price! I've found a few pieces here (on the other side of the country) for prices nearly as low. I still have to do some work on a couple of mine. Keep your pictures and ideas coming - you inspire me to finish my projects. Anxious to see Daisy Cottage with the new roof.

Chris& LAurie

You got some great deals!! We haven't been to any garage sales at all this year. To much to do at home:) Love the white table.


The white table is simply perfect!

I saw a cool idea regarding collecting wine corks. On the cork, you write the occasion you used the wine or champagne and put them in a large bowl or jar.

I can't wait to see your cottage with the new green roof!



Wow, great stuff!! Good luck with your roof. We had ours done last year, it was quite an experience. Can't wait to see pics of that too.
God bless :)

tea time and roses


Wow, these are beautiful pieces! I cannot believe the prices... These beauties were just waiting for you.




Hi, Kim, you really scored on all those pieces. The white table is my favorite. Love the shape of the legs & the little details. You always find great things. I hear you on the frizzy hair...yardsaling is not for beauty queens. I come dragging home sometimes looking quite pathetic! LOL


Henriëtte KB

Oh Kim these are gorgeous!! And what a great price, it is almost like they are giving them away.
Love the white table it is so elegant and has so many details.
Good luck on getting the new green roof, hope everything goes smoothly.


I mean, I mean are the queen of the garage sale! I have never seen so many great finds from one woman!! ;)
I love the white table with the shelf.
Great place for more stuff!


Ah come on...not come you get all the bargains!! I'm moving to your town! Great table and set up the ~Daisy style~..hugs NG

I am GREEN with envy here - what amazing finds and look at the PRICE! I live in the WRONG area for finds like those AND you'd never get them at that price if I did. That white table looks fabulous all "dressed" up.
You definitely have style and flair!

Linda Gagnon

Wow that table looks great. What a neat find.


You just continue to AMAZE me, Miss Kim! Love your treaures! I am going to drive to Florida with a huge, huge UHAUL and go junking! I could do without the humidty though...kinda spoiled here in Cali! ;) xo, Becky

The Glitter Fairy

WOW!!! Three dollahs??? I think it was supposed to say $83.00. What a sweet white table and I love what you've done with it.
Congrats on all your treasures.

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

I love that little blue bookcase. Really, I like everything you find. Your white table in the dining room is awesome!


How great! See what you can get for $3 these days.
I love painted furniture.
Thanks for sharing. I wish I could go with you to some yard sales.

Flea Market Queen

OMG...$3.00! You lucky,lucky girl!
I love painted furniture and yours are no exception! LOVE them...


Kim, what lucky finds with the little painted tables! I love them. The display on your white table is gorgeous! Wine -- yum!


You cannot beat a $3.00 table and especially one that looks as cute as that one.
What a bargain!!
:) Bren

The Decorated House

You made that little table sing with joy to so appreciated and made beautiful all over again!
Such a kind gift from Teresa. Look really nice with the table.


Thart's it - I'm planning my weekend in your area SOON! :)



(I hate typos, lol! Maybe I thought it was "Talk like a Pirate Day?)



Wow, $3 each! You really did well with those two. They're both lovely. We don't have yard sales here. Our equivalent I think are car boot sales but I don't think you would find anything so lovely or so reasonable as those two.

Dawn-Hydrangea Home

I can't get over your amazing finds! Great prices - have fun with them!


Those are INSANE prices! I am cottage jadeite green with envy. :) :) Congratulations on some fantastic finds!



Simply wonderful finds -- just waiting for the best home in the world -- at Daisy Cottage!

Jan x at a hot-and-muggy Rosemary Cottage


Wow! I think I am living in the wrong state....nothing around this area for that cheap! I need to come to the East Coast! I am sooo envious of your steals and deals! I LOVE the cuties!

Mrs G

adding you to my Jealous Of list :)! LOL....what darling little tables & those price tags are just like Practically Free :)


Kim, I am so loving your "finds," and the decorated result. :-)


I love them just as they are too! I had some good yard sale mojo this week myself. It looks like your good luck if finally starting to rub off on me!

karla nathan

Don't you love garage sale days like that when the prices are right and the things you find are great without a ton of work or a can of paint?? Glad you had a fun one!


All I can say is - AMAZING! I cannot believe you found such cute things for such lovely pricetags! And, as usual, you have made it a work of heart. I love the way you just "quickly put things together" - I should have such talent!
Hugs to you and Maggie,
Nan and Doxie Girls

HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs - Kim

Oh Kim, how very blessed you were to find such great pieces of furniture for $3.00 each! I love how you have everything displayed on your new white table...just lovely.

How very sweet of Teresa to send you a box of canisters.


$3 Each?!!! You lucky, lucky girl! Especially LOVE the little white shelf...too Cute!


I love the shapes on the while table, even more then the wonderful price!


Gorgeous finds! Such great bargains!


holy cow....$3?
i need to move.....down south! always you find the best deals and the greatest stuff.....
you most definitely have the good vintage karma!

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

Wow! You hit the jackpot of goodies! I will be searching yard sales tomorrow and hopefully Saturday too. I hope I find some $3 table and chairs!
Can't wait to see what you do with them!


Love the white cottage table...and, I'll echo what others are saying - those are great finds and at bargain prices. I have little tables & bookcases bought from thrift shops, but they cost more & I had to do all the sanding/priming/painting! I like to paint, but it would be great to just find them already in the great cottage colors & with the great lines & details.


Whoa!! THREE dollars?! What delightful finds. Am with the rest here, in loving especially that white shelf. OMGosh, sure gives me the yard sale bug again! You all have a great "sailing" area! Have a great week-end, and if that green roof doesn't interfere, hope you have more fun sailing! :-)

Sadie Olive

Love the chair and the black and white "coffee" pot!

Faux Wood Blinds Gal

What a beautiful refurbishing job. Love all your pixs and helpful ideas, thanks for sharing:-)

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
