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

Congrats on your Artful Blogging feature. I saw your site on the cover on the mags website but the issue is not available here yet. I read February 1st. Yours will be the first that I read when I get my hot little hands on it.

How wonderful is that? Congrats again.


Congrats to Cary! And now I'm going to copy this recipe and make those yummy looking brownies!
Have a wonderful day!


Ooooh, yummy! Look at that ooey-gooey chocolate!


The Toll House Pie I made last week has activated my sweet tooth and now I feel the need to have these.



Kim, You are absolutely adorable! Congratulations, Cary! <3 Rachel


I haven't made blonde brownies in years. My mom used to make them and when we were first married I'd make them all the time. Our friends would come over and we'd make brownies then eat the whole panful. Thanks for bringing back memories for me:) Rhondi


Dear Kim,
Congratulations to you on being featured in the magazine. You are so deserving of being featured and I couldn't be happier for you!

Congrats to Carey, too!

Blonde Brownies are my all-time favorite type of brownies...only problem is I like them TOO MUCH!

Love, Kim


If only my computer had a portal for food! Those look delicious!!!


I just wanted to add my 2 cents how happy I am about this unexpected recognition you've received! Your lovely home and spirit shines through your blog. I don't remember how I even discovered it but I'm so glad I did. Thanks for you and your cheery yellow cottage bringing sunshine this way.


Boy, oh boy, those brownies sure look good, Kim!! I like mine warm with a cup of coffee! :)

I'm copying your recipe and I'll try it tomorrow. It is rainy and cold here- a perfect day for baking.

I scampered off and made this recipe last night. It was super easy, so yummy, and I had a family with happy tummies! Thank you for the joy you share Kim.

Sharon many points is one of those brownies? Somehow I don't think my WW leader would approve.... :)

Martha Going

I've written the recipe down and I have the perfect company in mind to invite over :) Your blog always brightens my day!


Hi Kim,

It's only 6:30 in the morning here...but brownies can be considered breakfast foods can't they?



Congratulations Carey! Oh, and the brownies were dEEE-licious!


Yummmm!! Blonde brownies are my favorite!

I'll have to wait a few days before I make them though because right now I'm finishing off a pan of Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. :)

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

Great recipe, had to make it last night at midnight, and yum. It is so unusually cold and dreary here on the Texas coast that all I want to do is cook. They are loving all your recipes.

OK, my brownies are in the oven. :) So yummy looking and just what I need tonight LOL! Congratulations on your big feature! You are one of the kindest bloggers I know and definitely deserve it.

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

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
