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 that sunflower in amongst the evergreens. It's looking alot like Christmas in NH as we have 6 inches of snow overnight and still snowing! So pretty.


I love the bows on the chairs. I tied pretty little wreaths on the back of mine. Maybe I ought to take a photo and put that on my blog.

You are doing a lovely job...keep up the good work!


as usual, beautiful.


Love, love, love those bows!! Do you make them yourself? I have trouble tying my tennis shoes!! lol
It's looking more beautiful all the time!


I love the bow on the back of the chair. It's gorgeous. I also love getting these little Christmas glimpses, Kim!



WOW! I feel is "bowless" compared to you! You really are doing a fabulous job!


Oops, could you leave out the word "is" in the above comment. Just having one of those days! Haha!


Kim, it's not nice to tease us one or two bows at a time! We're all anxiously awaiting lots of photos of Daisy Cottage all dressed in her Christmas finery!

Silly Shari - that's all I'm managing to get done! ;-)


can't wait for the reveal ... maybe it will inspire me to get out my decor as well.


So pretty!

Love those big bows on the chair! Things are looking fabulous already!



Very lovely:-). I've so been enjoying all of your posts:-)
Have a wonderful evening!!


I love decorating with bows too. The bow on the chair looks great! Happy decorating!


Beautiful bow! After looking at your reds, and yellows, it makes me want to do a room in those colors! It's so clean and pretty!



OK, Kim, I've made bows like that before, and you've inspired me. About how many yards went into that big bow? I have three ladderback chairs that are suddenly looking naked and forlorn.


I love the way you shoot your photos with glimpse here and a slice there.

I think the ribbons for those big bows must have wires in them to help hold the shape? I think I might try that!



I love the way that bow looks on the back of that chair. I love visiting your blog, you really enjoy your daisy cottage and inspire the rest of us. Have a lovely evening. Karen

Sweet Cottage Dreams

Oh what a great idea! I am always finding such wonderful tips from you, Miss Kim! The colors of your home are just yummy with a spoon! You have such a magical touch to all of the finishing touches! Such a treat!!



I'm a bow girl too! I love 'em. Most people tease me about it.

The bows are so pretty and so is everything else. Mary

I love how your yellow, black, green and red
color scheme goes so well with any season. The touches of yellow seem so appropriate to a Florida Christmas.



Now THAT is a bow...and it is BEAUTIFUL!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

Love the bows, but I really love the sunflower on your tree!!


Mr. Acker Bilk is playing - I saw him perform, and met him, when I was a teenager - so many memories, thanks!!

Anyway - wanted to tell you your bows are beauties - all the colors are gorgeous together Kim - can see the holidays will be cheery at your cottage!


Bows make anything looks better, don't you think?



Beautiful setting. Love all the pretty ribbon. Happy holidays!

Angela (Cottage Magpie)

I especially like the plaid bow! Too cute!
~Angela :-)

Lovely, lovely, what else can I say!?!? Love your bows. Festive hugs, Cindy


Wow! I wish I could make a bow look like that! It's so pretty!


Everything looks just lovely! Your house is the perfect mesh of vintage/classy style. You are such an inspiration!

Mosaic Queen

Looks Great! I'm having a dinner party on Saturday, I should do that.


Ummmm, wish I could tie bows like that!


How fun and festive. Love that ribbon! I have bow impaired. How 'bout a tutorial?


Your holiday preparations are all looking festive and cheerful, Kim. Very pretty, indeed!
Best wishes to you!

Kim so many beautiful bows.


Daisy Cottage is so beautiful and inspiring. I'm glad to my heart that I stumbled across this blog.
Gorgeous doesn't come close. Love the bows.


You can never have too many bows. Words to live by, take it from me. lol

Merry Christmas!


Beautiful Kim. I would love to see your house at Christmas (in person). I know it is magical. I love your colors and the bows are simply too beautiful for words.



Red bows are PERFECT!!! You're not going to want to take them down after the holidays!!!

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
