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

October 18, 2007



I've finished the house decorating for fall, but still working on fall wedding things.

That pumpkin is so cute. I don't remember the last time I was in Tarjay..I think it was an errand and I was in and out. I think I might check there, over the weekend, for Hallowe'en/Fall goodies.



Good morning! ME First first?? Extraodinary! A witch flying cross a white pumpkin (the moon?!) is wonderful. Target (which we jokingly pronounce as Targhe' (soft "g" sound and leave off the "t") can have some fun collections. Still working on my own decorations...LOVE Halloween!

Have a lovely Thursday, dear Kim.

xoxo Elizabeth


Ah, I wasn't quite the first...a close second, though...and I see that Pat calls it Tarjay, too!!


The Decorated House

Oh, thanks for the warning! I'll stay away from that store...LOL

How cute that pumpkin is looking in your fab home!

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

I think a shopping trip to Target is on my list today. That pumpkin is so cute!


I love the pumpkin. Black and white polka dots look so cute with your bright colors.


Now that is what I call Halloween decorating.....whimsical and classy.....but what else would I expect from Daisy Cottage :-)

C. Stower

That pumpkin is awfully cute. I decorated for fall, we enjoyed it over the Thanksgiving weekend and I have already taken most of it down! I had an energetic day and changed everything in my tiny condo around! Love to see your fall deco though, please show more! Hugs, Cindy


How cute! I thought you'd painted it yourself.

tongue in cheek

What a clever idea, so chic and stylish


Oh I just think that is the perfect pumpkin for Daisy Cottage! I need to make a Tarjay trip today :)


The feathered nest

I was there yesterday and saw this. Target is amazing! The polka dot stem is too cute!


Sweet Cottage Dreams

Ok, that's it! I am going to Target!!!
Your arrangements are so happy and colorful! LOVE all that you do KIM!!! YOU are toooooo cute!!!! Your blog is always a happy spot in my day and so inspirational. Love your style!!!



Target is wonderful, isn't it? I love their decorations, too! Very cute, Kim - I haven't seen that one! I do so love the way you put things together, missy! You are one very talented lady!


The pumpkin is great! I like how you did the whole arrangement. I may need to run to Target today!
Donna :)


I love polka dots. That is one cute pumpkin.

Have you heard the latest news in the saga of Miss Maggie and Jazzie.
Well, Poor Miss Coco is trying to horn in on this love affair. She is very jealous.
She already has a boyfriend too.
I am trying to make her behave but it's very hard.
I posted the whole sad story on my blog.

Love that we too call Target Targhe....

Happy Fall,
Kathy :)

I love the pumpkin from Target. How cute that polka dot stem is. Our Targets don't have that or I would have popped at least on in my cart.

Thanks for sharing!


cute as ever! I love Target go broke most days I go there! stopping in to wave the dowgy post below too:) xo


i love the pimpkin! I was just there today an dI did not see that one...also love that chicken!


Great twist on the traditional orange pumpkin. The little polka dot stem is so cute!


I am having fun decorating this year too!! I just put out MORE pumpkins as I had to buy them for my class this morning (for a science lesson). I think the more reasons we can find to celebrate and decorate in our lives, the happier they are!!!


that pumpkin is darling! i missed those at my Target!


Very the polka dots.


ha-ha! How poifect for Daisy Cottage and you, Kim! I'm not a seasonal decorator (I like my home just the way it is ), but I do get a kick out of others' seasonal decor. Ya just gotta smile when you see a cute punkin like that!

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

Very cute! I don't remember seeing those cute pumpkins at my Target!


Gee, your Target is way better than mine. I went there after your last post about Target. . . the small white ceramic pumpkins. Nothing. Probably sell out too fast. I checked on Monday again and they already have all their Christmas decor displayed and the Harvest/Halloween stuff is GONE!!



Love it. Target is great fun! I love going there.


Who knew! I do love all things polka dotted. Whimsical :)!


Love the pumpkin - just love it! Looks like I've got to get to Target. Ha - you're so clever Kim, love the dots!

Carrie @ Oak Rise Cottage

Oh, such a bright beautiful vignette!

Daisy Cottage

Oh I wish I were clever enough to have created the dots and witch - but this pumpkin came already decorated! Get thee to Target if you can! ;-) Kim

Am I ever having fun with Fall decorations!!! I just got back from visiting my family in Wisconsin where everyone decorated big-time for Fall. I filled the van with gourds, colored corn, cattails, squash and pumpkins golore! I am having a ball playing house with my new decorations!

andrea danielle

What an incredible blog you have here! thanks for the visit to mine. I love that target pumpkin as well. I used it in my clients home. She has a lot of black and white.

Penny ~ Mosaic Artist

How cute is that pumpkin! I love the polka dot stem....

Thanks for visiting me! You are welcome for the mention - your office is awesome.


I LOVE that pumpkin! I've envied everyone in blogland showing off their treasures from Target because we don't have one nearby. BUT... I hear a new HUGE Target just went up 45 minutes away, so looks like I still have some hope! =)


I love Target too! I haven't seen these pumpkins though... I love the way you have pulled all of these cute things together :>)

Have a wonderful evening!


Angela (Cottage Magpie)

I'm a little behind the times, I'm just starting my Halloween decorations this weekend! Hopefully I'll have pictures next week. Meanwhile--I love that rooster! I want! ~A :-)


You're so good in decorating. I just love to watch all the funny, and nice, things on your blog.
Hope you have a great weekend.
Love Elzie

melissa @ the inspired room

I usually check out Target for their latest goodies, but I have been so busy with other things this year I have missed out! But, you sure found some great stuff! At this point, I think I will just focus on Christmas and enjoy the pumpkins in your pictures!



Gosh, Kim, I have a feeling Target is going to sell out of those beauties today! LOL Love that rooster, too! Enjoy your weekend!


looks darling. as always you decorate so cheerfully.


Love that pumpkin and the sunflowers, how perfectly "Daisy Cottage"! xo, suzy


I adore that cute pumpkin! I may have to make a side trip there today when I tell my hubby I am going grocery shopping. I was all jazzed a while back b/c they had ONE of the white ceramic pumpkins in the dollar bin. I ran to scoop it up, and low and behold, the bottom was broken.


have a great day! And so lovely to hear your music when I visit your site. Is it hard to add that to a blog?


The pumpkin is great! I have a friend and every Halloween she paints about half a dozen pumpkins each with a different theme..truly art! Happy weekend NG


I ***LOVE*** that pumpkin!!! How did I miss that at Target???

Alison Gibbs

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

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
