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've been VERY nice, of course! Just like you!


I always try my best to be nice and I think I succeed most o the time:>).


PS. Sometimes I wish I were a little naughtie!


I'm always nice! :) Oops, there goes my nose - darn that Blue Fairy!


a little bit naughtly but mostly nice!


Naughty-Nice? Do we really have to put a title on it? I try hard all year long to be good:)




Mostly nice....but sometimes I'm over come by naughty. I try.


Hmmm...kind of depends on the day I pick as to Naughty or Nice! Santa has always been very kind to me, though, so I think the NICE wins over!!

By the way, over at our Salvation Army yesterday I saw some little Santa Boots and thought of you and your great collection. I didn't have my camera or would have sent pics. I was afraid that if I bought them and shipped them they would break. It's a long way from AZ to FL!!

May your day be joyful :-)

Laura Lee

Oh, so NICE!! But maybe a wee bit naughty.

I have a vintage Santa mug and he needs a friend....

Kim, I have tried really hard to be nice, but occasionally I can't help but be naughty. But, please enter me in your contest anyway. Your little treasures always intrigue me. Merry Christmas to you!! Cindy


Oh what a fun post! I have been oh-so-very nice!

Thank you so much!



Oh Kim! I love the cup and apron! And I have been nice this year! Very nice!

Merry Christmas!



I've tried really hard to be nice all of the time, but some of the time with no success :)

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!



ive been a nice person( mabye or mabye not)
i no who that santa is!!!


i cant beleive that that is my dad. Ha HA thats funny


What fun! My mom has a whole collection of those great cups. Lucky you to have Santa pay a personal visit... Sent him up here would ya? Merry Christmas friend!


One reason I love visiting your home is that you're always NICE!
I had a little Santa mug like this when I was a child. A reminder of so many great memories. Thanks!

Janet K

All I can say is "Santa I can explain!" Ho Ho Ho!! I hope you and your lovely family have a wonderful and blessed Christmas and the New Year brings you all the happiness you bring to so many others. Hugs, Janet


Nice most of the year, but naughty this week in the fact that I have been MAJOR procrastinating and am trying to finish up gifts today for giving tomorrow! :)

Merry Christmas!


I think I have been a happy combination of the two. I have to say though, nice wants the mug and naughty wants the
Love your blog, read it everyday.


Well.... I try to be nice... But I must admit I have a friend who always tells me...
"Be good! And if you can't be good... Be careful!" :o)


I've been both but working on NICE more! Thank you for the chance! Jennifer


I've been very nice LOL. Just popped in to wish you a Merry Christmas.
Take care.
Love Elzie


Santa is watching so I'll say I have been nice! Nice, nice, nice! Maybe one or two incidents of naughty but over the span of an entire year that is really minimal!
You are a doll! If I win will you include Maggie too, please ?


Include me in Kim,Like most of the others I try my best to maintain nice,but naughty creeps in now and then ;)


I have been mostly nice, well I think so anyway. I love gingham, I made an apron at school (years ago) that was blue gingham and I loved it. Sadly, I got rid of it at some point.


I have been nice and it would be nice to have that mug to go with a vintage santa pitcher I have...


I hope I have been nice all year. I guess I will find out once Santa visits... lol


Merry Christmas Kim! I think I have been nice but I may have had a few naughty moments :)


I try to be nice... Does that count?
Merry Christmas Kim!


I've been 73 and 1/2 percent NICE...I really can't account for the other 'not so nice' time!! ROFL Happy Holidays!! Please tell Santa to pick my name from the hat/cup/bowl/basket...oh from whatever all of these names are in!! LOL

Daisy Cottage

Jamie! Shhhhhhh! ;-)

Kimberly C.

I've tried to be oh so good. . .


Well I have been very,very nice, I baked snowflake cookies this morning and didn't eat a single one!!! I sent my kids out the door this morning with kisses and hugs!! I love red and green, I love christmas, christmas and more christmas, and Merry Christmas to all!!! Diana


I definitely try to be nice always - but sometimes you have to be naughty or you won't get anywhere LOL!
Merry Christmas Kim!

Nice! I mean... Naughty! Well.... Let's not quibble. I have been... Me! mia at runbox dot com


Teresa Alber

Nice,ofcourse. Hopefully everyone would say that.


I've been naughty and nice. Santa looks so cute sitting on your porch.


The Santa mug brings back memories - we drank out of the identical ones at my grandma's - her collection is now mine. Thank you for bringing back great memories :)! (And I am a little naughty and a little nice - I like a nice balance.)


Hmm, let me think about that one. I'd say mostly nice but really naughty when it comes to buying fabric and patterned paper.

Happy holidays!

Teresa @ PlumWater Cottage

Naughty in the nicest way...


KIm.....I like most have tried so very hard to be nice all year long. But, like my 5 year old son says.....It is such a loooooong time!!! So, to be honest, there were, I am sure, a few naughty moments. LOVE Daisy Cottage all decorated!!!!


Nice I have been taking the time to be extra kind to strangers this Season....sometimes thay are quite shocked....everyone slow down and enjoy the small things today......
Peace and Goodwill to all

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Santa Baby, I've been nice and naughty. You're looking hot sitting there on Daisy Cottage's porch. No! I mean literally hot. A Santa suit and beard in Fla. must make one pretty toasty.
Thanks for hosting this giveaway, Kim. You are very generous to share your treasures.


Do you even need to ask?? of course, I've been very good, LOL. I'd love to win your giveaway, Ms. Kim!

Christmas hugs,


Nice, most of the time :) I've been reading for a while, but this is the first time commenting. I live not too far from you near Tampa. I love your style but I'm hopeless when it comes to decorating :(

Rachael S.

I've tried my very best to be nice!


Oh, I sure have tried to be good. Looks like Santa really has some nice goodies.
Have a Very Merry Christmas. Hope Santa is good to you.


linda t

Oooh, what a fun give-away at Christmas!!!
I'm nice cuz I am buying gifts and naughty cuz I am wanting gifts!!! Is that wrong?!!


I've been terribly naughty but I'd like to be entered anyway. :)

tee hee!


Kim...truthfully I've been soooo good, I'm exhausted!!!! Yes, I've been a very very good DAUGHTER this year! Ha, I love your giveaway, the plate is just precious - and well I'm certainly in NEED of an apron. And is that your hubby dressed as Santa? WOW - what a wonderful wonderful picture!!!
(Even if I don't win, Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family, and THANK YOU for a wonderful blogging year!)

the feathered nest

Oh, I always try to be nice but I have my moments! I came by to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!



I've been just a wee bit naughty, but would love to eat some cookies off the green plate and hold the darling mug close while making some cocoa while wearing the darling apron!
Merry Christmas to you and your family, Kim!


I try to be nice, but I sure have my share of naughty days! By the way, I love the green toile plate- toile is one of my favorites!
Merry Christmas!


Oh, let me be honest, NAUGHTY!


I have been very nice, I hope everyone else in my family thinks so come Christmas Eve! Love your giveaway and your Santa looks perfect on your porch!


I've been nice with just enough naughty thrown in to have some fun!

Love that adorable apron!


I got a review at work last night and they think I'm nice. LOL

Santa looks perfect at Daisy Cottage!


I am good most days! Can't lie to Santa, right?

Happy Holidays!

Southern Heart

I'm nice at least 90% of the time. :) Merry Christmas, Kim!

Love, Andrea


I think I am mostly nice with a pinch of naughty thrown in for spice!!!


i've been good-i promise!!
I hope you and your family have a wonderful and merry Christmas!!!


I am mostly nice but I do have my days. Santa looks so cute sitting on your porch.


Wishing you a happy holiday and a merry Christmas!


Only occasionally naughty! ;)

Merry Christmas!


Dear Santa,

I have been a really good girl this year and I hope that I win the very special gift that "Daisy Cottage" is giving away this year. But if I don't , you know what they say "maybe next year". Have a happy holiday.


I'm hoping my name is on Santa's NICE list this year...I have been trying awfully hard! Merry Christmas to all y'all!


Oh, that's a hard choice - sometimes a teensy bit naughty- but mostly nice. Especially in December! Momma didn't raise a dummy here!


Oh Santa, I have really tried and think I have been more nice than naughty! I used to have a Santa mug just like that when I was a little girl!
Merry Christmas!


I think naughty but I act nice :)

Love your bloggie!!

jessi nagy

My life has been so much nicer since I started reading your blog. Me, personally, ummm, mostly nice. =)

what a joy your blog is....Merry Christmas and thank you for all the wonderful inspiration


Oh, definitely nice :o)!!
Merry Christmas, Kim!


A bit of both, I confess...


I think I have been nicely naughty, or maybe naughtily nice. Depends who you ask. Merry Christmas Kim!


Oh, I'm always nice. *wink*


Great giveaway, Kim! I love every single thing about it and the jolly old elf on your front porch!!

I did a post about a very vintage card etc, today. It's a bit nostalgic and I was a bit tearful writing it. You might like it!

Merry Christmas!
Pat and family

Tina McNamara

I must say I am nice most of the time, or I try to be. However, I bet it would be a lot of fun to be naughty every now & again!!


Nice, of course! I've been reading your blog for a few months and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to drop by and tell you how much I enjoy the pictures and stories. Your home is lovely and I had a dachsund named Gretchen growing up, so seeing Maggie brings back great memories for me. Merry Christmas!

Dear Kim! Oh what fun!! Thank you for this fun and cute giveaway....I hope Santa picks me. You know I have been a really good girl this year. LOL! Love your blog sweety! ~Hugs~ from Texas!


A little bit naughty, a little bit nice.

Love your blog.


I'd have to say I've been pretty nice! I think Santa would think so too!
Hugs! and Merry Christmas!


I think I have been mostly nice, with just enough naughty to add a little spice. ;)

The Merriest Christmas to you and your family. And a special "doxie" Christmas greeting from Brigitte Lilly to Ms. Maggie.

Bonnie Buckingham

I'm always repenting!



Thank you for putting a smile on my face whenever I drop by, it always makes me feel better. I wish you and your family a very happy and healthy holiday season.


Oh Kim, what fun! I think I've been pretty nice. I'm not so good at being naughty, unless you count the calories ;) Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.


nikki brey

I am ALWAYS nice!(my husband my disagree) but I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY need that apron...I don't have one :0(


Merry Christmas! I've been nice with a little bit of naughty thrown in!! The vintage Santa cup would look so cute with my Bailey cups!
Happy Holidays!

Barb McMahon

Ooooh! This is great Kim!

Put me down on the Naughty list.(hee hee!)

And Merry Christmas!


I am both really. And usually at the same
time....oh well...

Happy Holidays!


Kathleen Grace

Always nice!(mostly):>)


Both for me .... yes a little of each


Definately NICE! At least most of the time! ;)

Elaine L.

I've been mostly nice, but I think I would have had a lot more fun if I had been a little more naughty.

That Santa cup would look so nice next to the lonely one I found at the thrift store last week. hint, hint LOL

Love, ~elaine~


I'm afraid I have to admit to a little bit of naughty.....but I realllly want to be nice, just can't help myself! Hope you have a Merry Christmas

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 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 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 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 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
