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

OHHHHHH!!! I LOVE it!! I just found out I have to be at Disney in October for a TaeKwonDo competition - I'm thinking a side-trip to this store is a MUST!

My kind of shop!
Thanks for sharing. I love everything about it.

Oh what fun and how lovely! Lucky you!! Also, I tagged you for a Nice Award, because you are always so very nice and sweet!


I'm getting heart palpatations just thinking of shopping there! Okay, so maybe that's the menopause causing that, but STILL! That place looks great!

Mikey in AZ

Sheila a.k.a. Mrs G

Thank you for sharing this wonderful shop! Do they have a website or blog running?

Daisy Cottage

Oh, I'm so glad you all are enjoying her new shop! Just click on the word "Vintage" that is in red in my post above and that will take you to her website.

the Feathered Nest

Well that could be dangerous - having such a wonderful shop in your neighborhood LOL!
Looks like a fun shop with tons of goodies!



Oh my goodness how fun! I could use the wire basket on that green table. Wish her lots of luck from all of us lovers of old. Thanks for sharing Kim.


You lucky girl! I just discovered your site and it is adorable! Come and visit me sometime!


oh how fun! I'm drooling here! Too much loveliness......not really, but you know! JUST HOW WE LIKE IT!


Oh my goodness....this makes me want to take a road trip :)
BTW/love your new music!!


Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful.........I so wish we had neat shops like that in my neighborhood. I really do need to travel more! I would have so much fun looking....and that shop :)


I see sooooo many goodies I would love to take home :) Thanks for the tour!!


Elisabeth C

GORGEOUS stuff!!! Thanks for the eye candy and how lucky are you..enjoy and thanks for sharing.


I'm lovin that green table! Lucky you to have such a neat shop right in your neighborhood!


What a charmer! A BEAUTIFUL shop!! Crazy about that pink chalkboard door!! I wish her the greatest success with the shop!
So glad she let you share with us all.


Oh, dear- I may have to make a trip to your neighborhood! The parasols, the yellow coverlet, & the green table are all calling out to me!


I'd be in real trouble if that opened in my neighborhood! And Kim, is that your blog being featured I spied in the latest issue of Romantic Homes? Congratulations.

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Vintage looks like a fun place.


Oh my gosh! I have been looking for a 3 tier basket to put in my girls bathroom for a month. I have been to ebay, and every store in town. Lo and behold, there is the exact one that was in the BHG mag. this month that I have been wanting! Right there on your blog, in a store in your neighborhood. Lucky duck! Too bad I live so far away or I would come buy it! Maybe I could call have have her ship it to me!
btw, love your blog!

Robin~Thrifty Miss Priss

So sweet of you to show us all that! I wish I could go!


How wonderful...and dangerous! What a great shop!


Oh, I saw so many things I want!


What a great tour. I too saw many things that I want. I may just have to come for a visit ;) Love her displays I think I'll go back for a second visit.


Great shop and in your neighborhood too. A perfect excuse to go and drool over all the wonderful stuff. Walking around a shop is considered exercise in my book and if the goods get your heart pumping it is aerobic exercise, right? Congratulations are in order for the mention of Dear Daisy Cottage in the blog article in the new Romantic Home Magazine ( September). A well deserved honor.



there is a shop very close to me that is very similar! It is always a joy to go treasure seeking and I certainly find them!!

I looking at the merchadise in this shop I see several treasures with my name on them!!
I see that red chest with YOUR NAME on it!!
I can imagine how excited you are and I am sure you shall become friends with the owner!
hugs NG


Ooooo, you're lucky! I have to travel 60 miles to find a shop like that.


karla nathan

I'd sure shop there!


Kim! Can I come shop? I'll bring my sleeping bag and sleep on your front porch you won't even know I'm there (Maggie might sniff me out though) Thanks for sharing a little piece of heaven.


There are so many things I like in the shop it would be hard to decide which to buy.

She has some great items and whoever gets there first will get some good deals I bet.
I always try and hit the vintage shops when they first open and score some good deals.
I wish I lived closer so I could do some shopping there.
Have a great day :)) Bren


Wonderful shop and so beautifully displayed! I spy a scotty dog, a green table and a couch that I want. Oh, and the black bird cage. Lucky you for living so close! Note to self, must take a trip to Florida!


What a fabulous shop! There's a ton of ideas in there!


They have great stuff there, hu? Lovely place!

How wonderful to have such an amazing shop right in your neighborhood...maybe a bit dangerous ($$$), too! Thanks for the great pix.

Kim - I just got my Romantic Homes Oct 2007 issue and saw the nice write up about you and your blog on page 18. I AM SO PROUD!!!!! Thank you for sharing your lovely home and spirit with us! With love, Esther


One of your photos is of a metal basket with three blue candles in it - I have a basket very similar to it that I bought years ago from a shop very much like Vintage (but in California). I've never seen another one like it until now! What a great shop to have nearby.

melissa @ the inspired room

Kim, this very well could be the second time I commented on this shop, but if I already did, it deserves a second I LOVE IT! I looked yesterday and drooled and now here I am again with drool on my chin.

I would love to go shopping there right now, for real. So nice of you to walk around snapping pictures of everything for us!



How cute is that shop? How are the prices?I see a ton of stuff I'd like to add to my home...let's see..I'll take one watering can, some vintage material, a locker basket, a dresser, a vintage fan, a gilded frame, one chandelier (sp?) You'll have a great time shopping over there....


Wow, that is indeed a lovely shop!

Kim @ Home Is Where The Heart Is

How beautiful!

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

What eye-candy! Goodness... I would need a uhaul to bring back all the great stuff that I saw! Wishing her much success!

Wow, fabulous things - I want so many of them! Lucky girl getting a shop like this in your neighborhood - I know I'm one of many who wants to move in!

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
