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 ordered a beautiful toile one from Kathy's Cottage! Can't wait to get it!!


Suzanne Duda

Kim, I don't make anything to sell, but I could think of nothing I would like more, than to make one for you, just because! Send me your address and I'll get started!

Oh Kim, I am looking at this post and all sorts of designs for Daisy Cottage are whirling around in my head! It is going to drive me crazy to go to work today, I would so much rather be making more hearts, but tonight.....I think I may have to do some creating:>)


Kim, I would be happy to send you some "charming" hearts; just send me your address. And, I will try to get some up on the blog by Feb. 14. Thanks for making A Charmed Life so popular!


If you page down in my February posts you'll find a heart project of mine :-)


Silly me - the post in is the January section and my blog link is here


I can't sew for the life of me but I have a feeling you'll be receiving tons of beautiful hearts! :)


Here is a link to some of my hearts. Enjoy!


I have started my collection of fabric hearts...two from Kathy's Cottage are leading the pack. We are going to have fun with this lovely collection!
hugs, bj

I love them! I'd love you to share a picture of that white bowl when it is filled....Arlene


I love it! So cute. I have one little heart in my Etsy shop:
It's not your color though.
I'll make you a red one. Watch the mailbox!


Hi Kim,

What a sweet idea :) I love your rooster heart!


Teresa ~ French Poppy

So sweet Kim, I wish I made fabric hearts, but I am enjoying all the links you are getting!!



Thank you Kim! I'm so pleased the heart is starting a new collection for you. What a lovely thought - a bowlful of hearts! I look forward to seeing how it grows.


Adorable.....that would look so cute in my kitchen along side my roosters. What a cute idea a bowl of hearts...can't wait to see it.

Happy Valentine's to you Kim..
Kathy :)


Hi Kim,
Send me your address and I'll send you one from the west coast!! Love your site, would love to send you love back! M :-)

Kelly Henderson

Dear KIm,
I love Daisy Cottage. I'm a yellow and red girl too, and I head to your fun blog to find inspiration. I just made some fun felted wool Valentine hearts and they're posted on blog under the post pocket Valentines and felted cupcakes. I'm in the process of constructing my blog right now but soon I'll feature my designs there. I'll send you something fun and red... Kelly


What a great idea! I don't sew (at all), but if I did, I'd do one just for you. Can't wait to see all the ones you get. You deserve a big bowl of love from your readers 'cause you're a sweet "heart" to us!



It's funny, I've been making up some hearts just to use some of my fabric stash. You want a few, I'll make 'em for you. Obviously, we're a little late for Valentine's Day. But hearts are my favorite shape, and I don't think they are ever really out of season, do you?
My blog is you can visit!

Daisy Cottage

You all are just AWESOME!! I will be visiting your links over the next few days - thank you, thank you for sharing your HEART with me!!!


Susan Ramey Cleveland

Kim, if you will please e-mail me your mailing address at [email protected], I would love to send you and Maggie a heart from my heart (and sewing machine).

Chris@Cats on my Quilts

Aren't hearts wonderful! My daughter and I have been looking on the shore of our Maine Cottage for years for heart shaped rocks. Once in a while we find them. We even find heart shaped sea glass once in a while.


I will make you one Kim!!!


oooo-laaaa-laaa...what a precious little heart Jill made for just doesn't get any cuter than red check fabric and it!



Ohhhh so cute!

Wonderful. :-)



Kim, please stop by She makes the most beautiful hearts. This is the address for her blog,,,, scroll down.... She sells them in her Etsy shop. I bought one and loved it so much I had to have another.

Mary Issabella

Such a beautiful Heart...Smiles...Mary


I don't have a heart for you to buy, but that is very sweet of you Kim.


Rachel Going

Kim, You are adorable girl! Absolutely adorable. I know I keep telling you, but it is the truth. You are a blessing, and YOU are still at the top of my list!xo Rachel


I haven't made a heart yet but I'd be happy to make one for your collection, although it will indeed be after Valentine's Day. If that's okay, please send me an email ( with your mailing address. My blog address is:

Do you have a size preference?


Well, I've been into birds, but I reckon I can try my hand at a heart! : ) Here's my link, might be a day or two:



Oops, sorry, my email thing I wrote so that spammers can't use it didn't work. Just insert the "at" sign where the period is between "scroggin" and "cox." If that doesn't make sense, there is an email link to me on my blog in the right-hand column.

And here I thought I was being so clever--that's what I get.

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

Kim - I bought the most beautiful heart from Kathy at
She is amazing! Stop in to see her...

Oh! And if you are ever looking for a mosaic know where to come to....


OH what a great idea!

Susan at black eyed susans kitchen

Hi, Another heart lover! I have been making felted wool hearts with vintage button this year. I also received several hearts from a swap partner. Just check the posts on my blog from January through now and you will see many. Send me your address and I will happily send you a heart...from mine to yours.A little thank you for writing such a nice blog. Susan

Lori Janiszewski

I don't make fabric hearts, but I did think of you because I'm having a monogrammed pet jewelry give away and I thought of Miss Maggie. Stop by to enter if you'd like. I'll announce the winner tomorrow! xo
Happy Heart collecting!


Hi Kim What a lovely idea! I've seen a few hearts other bloggers have made and a collection of them would be really wonderful. Well it looks like those generous bloggers are at it again, spreading their love around-I noticed on the comments that some of your fans who don't sell hearts are going to make one for you! It never ceases to amaze me how kind and loving bloggers are. You are going to have fun waiting for the mailman to come each day!
Rhondi xo


Your new little heart is very sweet :o) I can't wait to see all the new hearts you receive and love the idea of displaying them in a bowl!!!!


Hi Hun! I'd love to make you a heart to add to your bowlful-of-hearts! Great idea!! Is there a size preference? Lemme know!
Please send your snail address to my email addy. wysewyspy AT gmail DOT com
Can't wait to see your collection!


I love hearts, too (our wedding anniversary is on Valentines Day-maybe that has a little something to do with it!!!). I made a very humble and small heart from red gingham leftover from a something I sewed for my granddaughter, and decorated with buttons from one of my husband's old shirts!
I really enjoy visiting your blog- thank you for the inspiration and beauty you share.


Wow, lots of people out there making hearts! I wish I had come upon this a couple of days ago! I didn't make any hearts this year. Maybe next? :) Happy Valentine's Day, Kim!


I'd love to send you one of my Lavender scented hearts for you collection. You can email me at rubyjunes at

Tina Eggert

My blog really isn't a crafty one (yet...) but I do love to craft. I would love to send you a fabric heart if you're interested! Send me an e-mail & let me know ( I actually have been making some to use up some scraps I had laying around...) :)Hope your Valentine's Day was wonderful (love your site too!!!) bye for now-Tina

Daisy Cottage

I've contacted each of you that offered a heart! I emailed you or I left you a note on your site - hopefully you got my emails - I'm having "issues" with Yahoo! Thank you soooo much! I can't wait to share these beautiful hearts with all of you.


Karen, here's a link to a Valentine tree I had in one of our shops. It will give you an idea of what some of those hearts look like.

I don't have any for sale right now but I'd love to send you a couple for free! I'll need a PO box or snail addy.



aww...i wish i had some to share. i had planned to make some fabric hearts for v-day but got busy with jewelry orders.

who can ever have too many hearts though, even after v-day? maybe i'll make some just for fun?

:) Diana


What a joy it has been to discover your site! Here are some hearts I made before Valentine's Day. Enjoy!


I don't make anything to sell, but if you would like one of the small heart pins like I made for Tina I would be glad to make you one and mail it to you. Just let me know and let me know your address. I love your blog and your home!!

Claudia Burrows

Dear Miss Kim, Just stopping by to say "hi" and send a virtual Valentine's hug (a little late). Always happy to hear "Stranger on the Shore" on your beautiful site... As I sit and sip a cup of tea I'll say an extra prayer for you tonight! Blessings, Claudia xoxoxo


I too love hearts:) Posted one last week made out of a vintage linen curtain with ribbon flowers.

Have a happy day :)

Heidi Woodruff

Ask and you shall receive? You're going to have a wonderful collection! I've got one with your name on it... I just sent an email for your addy info!

See the heart here:



I found your blog through "Notes From a Cottage Industry". I know it might be a little late but I thought I'd comment anyway. I just posted on my blog, a heart that I made if you'd like to take a peek. I'd be happy to make one for you as well if you'd like! Just email me your addy and I'll be happy to send it!


I love you cottage! I live in my dream home, built in 1892. It is also painted yellow, with white and red trim. Red,gold, yellow, and green are colors I seem to use a lot. I have crazy patch hearts filled with lavender from my garden at my etsy site (www.etsy.d'Jean'

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
