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

Yes my dear Kim, Just as I was worth the wait. So clean and beautiful. I love the flowers and the tiny matching rooster! Have a wonderful weekend. xoRachel


Good Job! Mine will wait another month or so until the weather warms enough to open a window now and again. A clean house and fresh Spring air....a heady combination!

:-) Rosie


My spring cleaning starts AFTER spring out here in West Texas. We have infamous SAND STORMS during our spring. No use to clean until they are over...
The flowers are lovely....


Ah, Daisy has had a thorough bath (like Eliza in "My Fair Lady"!) and is now ready to be dressed with the wonderful array of garments which you have gathered. Looking forward to photos of new "costumes"!

The flowers are beautiful...have a happy weekend.....Elizabeth


Welcome back - we missed you. Can't wait to see what you've been doing around the house. The flowers are gorgeous! ~Adrienne~


Wow!! Those look so nice in the enamelware. I particularly love those little white flowers in that third photo.


You have been missed! The fresh flowers are intoxicatingly beautiful. I agree with one of the ladies, spring cleaning will have to wait, we have some really pretty days, and then back to rain and possible snow showers. But time does change this weekend, so longer days, mean more changes to clean, ugh!
Have a Blessed Weekend!


Beautiful flowers!! Now you're making me feel bad. I can't believe you've already got your spring cleaning done! We've still got snow falling and my windows are a mess. But, I'm not likely to start cleaning them until it warms up.


Hi Kim!
I think I can smell those gorgeous carnations right through my computer screen! I love their scent - heavenly! Congrats on spring cleaning....gotta do that soon!

Enjoy your day & those beautiful flowers!


Have a wonderful week-end...

Kathy :)


Beautiful flowers Kim! They go so well with Daisy Cottage. Glad to hear your spring cleaning is finished, I haven't started yet. Looking forward to seeing pictures of the new, clean Daisy Cottage!

Alison Gibbs

What a fabulous bucket of flowers.


I love the enamelware pot of those gorgeous flowers and the little chicken peeking around the corner of it as well.My Spring cleaning begins this tomorrow!Enjoy your day Kim, such a cheery post to begin the weekend.


The flowers are lovely and I'm sure Daisy Cottage is sparkling. I began my spring cleaning this past week as well, however we are in the midst of a blizzard here in southwest Ohio with 15 inches of snow expected by Saturday afternoon. It is beautiful outside our windows but not very springlike. (Unless your used to crazy Ohio weather.)Your photos give a breath of fresh air as always. Thanks.


Hi Kim,
Welcome back.

Gee it smells so fresh and clean at your house! I better get going here and do the same.

Love your huge arrangement of cheerful flowers and that cute little rooster pecking at something, makes me feel happy!
Happy weekend.


You have a great weekend too!


Hi Kim :)

I sent you an email the other day and I'm sorry if I sounded like some crazed fan LOL I just loved your blog so much that I couldn't help but gush. Anyway, I'm glad to see you post again and I wanted you to know that because of you (and some others) that I started my own blog. I have no idea what I'm doing, but I hope that one day it turns out as wonderful as yours.
Thank you for the inspiration.



What a great way to start a new weekend. I'm so glad to see you back again. Love the flowers--they smell so good--and what a feast for the eyes. Thank you for more than one view. I feel like I could reach out and touch them. You brighten the day for so many people. Enjoy your weekend!


Beautiful flowers you have there. We could sure use some blooming her in cold, snowy, Michigan!!



Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

What pretty pictures! I can almost feel the spring breeze.


I started spring cleaning when we had a 60 degree day. How times change.......We are in the midst of a Blizzard with 12 inches of snow!

Lovely pictures!



Oooooh, pretty! BTW, your heart was mailed out earlier this week. Hope you get it soon!


Good Morning Kim,

What a beautiful bunch of flowers :) There's nothing better than having a clean home and fresh flowers to top it off, it's like the cherry on the cake!


Vee~A Haven for Vee

The flowers are so perfectly spring! Can't wait to see what primping you've been up to...I know it'll be good!


Flowers are such amazing works of art. All the different shapes, colors and sizes. Yours are splendid. Happy Spring...and, I'm glad your 'spring' cleaning is done! Lucky you!


The flowers are gorgeous. Flowers usually motivate me to clean. :o)


Beautiful flowers! So pretty and "springy"! We just received 10+ inches of snow over the past two days, yuck. I'm so ready for spring and flowers.

Brenda Kula

A burst of colorful springtime reminders couldn't come any sooner! Love your colors, your blog, your sense of proportion. Well, I guess everything.


Just gorgeous!

Rachel Going

Kim, Just wanted to let you know I dropped by from The Decorated House blog. What a dream come true, the 2 of you actually meeting. How wonderful...I hope your weekend is the best. (((HHUUGG))Rachel

Beautiful flowers, Kim....they suit your sunny nature!

LeAnn Huntington

Such a pretty bouquet. We got about another 4-5 inches of snow here today so it was a refreshing site.

LeAnn :)


Such pretty flowers. Glad your spring cleaning has gone so well!


A friend of mine popped in during the tour this past weekend and just knew I'd love your home. She grabbed a card that sent me here to your blog. What a lovely, cozy spot on the web! I'll definitely be visiting often.....


With a foot of snow and a now leaking roof, spring cleaning seems light years away. Can't wait to see what you've been up to! Hopefully I'll get the spring cleaning bug soon.


These are really pretty. I'm still waiting for some small hint of Spring to come besides having to "spring forward" with my clock.

It snowed again today-ugh!

Have a great week!

Maureen Georgia

Kim- gorgeous flowers and oh, so perfect colors for your cottage, which is also perfection! Love those bright happy colors! Your blog always makes me smile! I can't get posies out of my mind lately!


lovely flowers.

Lynne Laura

Lovely to see the abundance of flowers at this time of year. Winter seems like it will never end and flowers just bring in the forecast of spring! Wonderful!


Arlene McComas

Your home really is a dream...can I come? Or better still, would you come do a few corners in my home?
Loved the lovely pictures!


Hello~ Just had to drop a little note with ya'! I just love your fresh flowers! They bring such cheer. I started my spring cleaning yesterday and am done. I like to get it done ALL in one day!! Everything is sparkly clean. I love coming by and visiting for a bit. You have a beautiful home!!! Until next time.

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
