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

melissa @ the inspired room

Congratulations! You are an artful blogger so this is a great honor to be recognized! And it couldn't happen to anyone more sweet.


Congratulations on having your blog featured. It is one of the best I have seen. You have lovely pics, you keep it updated and exciting. One thing I like about it is that you don't ramble on and on, I don't have time to sit and read a long post. I check yours out almost every day. Hugs, Cindy


Hi Kim
How exciting for you. They made an excellent choice because your blog is just the best!! You make us all feel so welcome when we visit. I tried to find the first issue of The Artful Blogger when it first came out. No one here had it, so I am glad to see that Borders is going to carry it this time.
I just began to blog in November and can't believe how many wonderful people I have met.
Count me in for the draw. Hope I win!


I generally lurk since you have so many comments already, but wanted to congratulate you! I LOVE Daisy Cottage and I will be on the look out for Artful Blogging!


Dawn-Hydrangea Home

I loved the last issue of that mag and can't wait to see the next. Congratulations on being featured! So exciting! What I find really amazing is all of the bloggers and women owned websites I recognize in many magazines. I feel like I know them! I would love to be entered!


I just looked and you can also get it online for bloggers who can't get to any of the stores listed.

Amy Wingate

I'm so excited for you!! Congrats!!

I am so excited for you, Kim, congratulations! I would love to be entered in your giveaway. One way or another I will make sure I get a copy so I can read your article.


I hope you don't mind, but I put your blog and address in my blog today. I love it so much and wanted to share.I did run into a technical problem though...Do you know how to put the link in so people can just click on it and it will come up? I couldn't figure it out.


We are all so proud of you, way to go girl. I cant wait to see the story you do on our home for FiFi and Romantic Country. Your words are music to our ears.
Hugs Gene ans Debbie

Congratulations! It couldn't have happened to a nicer blogging lady!

Sherry Campbell

One day while looking for a craft idea, I came upon the Apron Thrift Girl blogsite, don't ask me how I got directed there, but I did. When looking at some of her favorites I stumbled upon your blog. I have to say that I am in awe of how wonderful this site is, and how personal you make it. I feel as though I am evesdropping on a conversation amond friends, and I am the outsider. It is easy to get pulled into the world of people you do not know. Even in a world where you don't know someone, you can have something in common. Several of the colors in your house are ones that I have in mine. I think how maybe one day my home could be as comfortable and full of lovely things. I am so very happy for you and will look for the magazine when it hits the shelves! Congratulations!!!


Congratulations! I'd love to win a copy!


Congrats, so deserve to have a spot in that delightful magazine! I have yet to see a copy.....I love the yellow frames peeking out in your photos on this post!


Woo-hoo! I'm so thrilled for you, Kim! It's wonderful to see you and your blog recognized and shared with others. I know everyone will enjoy your article and you'll be adding many more new friends to your blog. You're such an oasis in the everyday rush of life!

Betty @ Country Charm

Certainly I would love a copy.....thanks, Betty

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you Fifi!

  • "It's people like yourself that make everything beautiful and worthwhile." ~ 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
