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 love the fun things! ALL of them!


Hi Kim,

Well, what timing! I just popped over to your blog to find you have so kindly shown the gifts I sent you! But what you didn't say was how generous you had been by sending me FOUR US magazines! I've thoroughtly enjoyed looking at them!

Thank you so much - have a lovely weekend!

Lovely things to enjoy from "sweet spirited" ladies. I love them all.

What wonderful gifts!!!! Just perfect. Thank You for a beautiful blog.



What sweet things! I love all the beautiful colors.



Lallee's dishcloths are so cute...and it seems they were made just for that teacup!
And Clare sure sent you a nice package!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

The dishcloths are quite wonderful, and so is the other stuff.


First, the dish cloths and teacups are a perfect pair! Funny how similiar things in life find their way together....kind of like all these friends on your blog! And Clare is a big sweetheart! You are two of a kind too!!!


Those really go together well, you have an eye for color that I would love to have.
I absolutely love your yellow walls with your red picture frames. I would never have thought to do that.
You have that decorator instinct.
That was a nice package Clare sent.

Smiles :) Bren

Kim - you always have such beautiful pictures on your blog! Have a wonderful weekend!


How fun! I know you enjoyed opening that package!

Those dish cloths are Beautiful! How are you planning to use them? Are they made from cotton yarn?




I come to check out your blog about once a week. Tonight for the first time I heard the beautiful music you have set to play while we view your lovely blog. While I was smiling and reading my sweet guy spun me around in my chair and asked me to dance with him. Oh happy day! Just wanted to say....thanks for the dance, Kim :)



What pretty dish cloths, and other lovely things!


You are Truly Blessed!!


Kim, thank you for your so kind comments on the dishcloths. I hope you really enjoy them. That cup with the forget-me-not is amazing! You'd think I'd had it to study when I made it. I love them together!

Clare's gifts are wonderful. I can see she knew just what would go with Daisy Cottage!

Rosalie got asked to dance while listening to your blog music. How neat is that?????

Hi Kim,
Those tea cloths are lovely. What a nice surprise. My friend's mother pass on just a couple years ago and about a year before that, she made me some of those dish cloths. I just couldn't think of using them for that purpose ,so I put them on my kitchen table as dish mats. Also that beautiful white apron that you bought. I just love it. I enjoy stopping in at your blog site. Have a good weekend.

Lovely things! Lallee is very talented! And, how sweet of Clare! Looks lovely!


So that is who bought Lallee's darling crochet pieces! Aren't her creations the best? I just love how soft the yarn feels to the touch. Kim, you have everything so beautifully displayed, too!

And Miss Claire! She is another sweetie pie with a charming home and how lovely of her to send you such a sweet package.

I just love you wonderful ladies! All of you offer so much heartfelt inspiration and joy to my days!

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
