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

Suzanne Duda

So glad you like your heart Kim, it was a true joy making it for you! xo suzanne


I have been coming to your blog for many months now and the hearts are the reason for my first comment. They are all just so cute. Your photographs show everyone with such detail. I love each one. I have lots of small pieces of fabric. Now I know what they will be used for.


What wonderful treasures you've received! They are all such pretty little hearts & such great talent in each one!

I'm celebrating my One Year Blog Anniversary with a Cottage Give-Away - stop by for a visit!



All these hearts have inspired me to try a "Have a Heart Exchange". Now all I need are some participants. :)


oooo, PRINCE...I've ALWAYS been a hugh fan of his, even tho I AM OLD. He is just precious, has tons of talent and is cute, to boot. Pretty cool that you've seen him in person!!


So pretty!! Makes me feel like spring in my heart to look at these pretty flowers! I am new to blogging and have started a blog and I hope I can do as beautiful of a job as you have done on yours! Your Daisy cottage is just so beautiful and inspirational!! God Bless!!

Alison Gibbs

Oh what lovely hearts Suzanne and Becky made for you. How sweet to add an extra treat with them.

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

Beautiful hearts! And prety little daisy goodies!! There ARE so many talented people out there! From crafters to decorators...So much knowledge to share.

Karen Kearney

What a Beautiful Blog..It has me so excited for spring!! We have had a lot of snow in the Ottawa Valley and a visit to your blog has raised my spirits! Thank~You!


Loved your home tour photos! Pretty as can be!! Daisy Cottage is picture perfect! loveyou Kim!


Those hearts are just adorable! Pretty soon you're going to have to find another bowl for them. Blogging really is a wonderful thing :)


I was just thinking that you're going to have to do something with all these hearts and am wondering what unique thing you'll come up with!! Though the metaphor of hearts overflowing the bowl in your home perfectly expresses YOU!!! I had to look at your last post again because your home is so pretty! I think I might paint one of my rooms that same red. I love it! Thanks for all your wonderful comments lately... you just lift me up all the time! :)
Lots and lots of hugs back!!!


I came across your blog and it is lovely! What delightful treasures you have in presents and in friends.



Susan Ramey Cleveland

Thanks, Kim, for sharing your lovely hearts and other treasures. It's almost like visiting Daisy Cottage.

I love the combination of yellow daisies with black and white!
BTW, didn't you get my heart yet? Or am I just missing it in your blog? I mailed it over a week ago. If it got lost, lmk and I'll make you another one!

Daisy Cottage

No, I didn't get it yet! But I'm going to the post office today so I'll check to see if it is there. I do have more hearts to share later this week, but I don't have yours yet. Hopefully it is waiting on me in my mailbox. (((hugs))) Kim


I hope you find it at the post office! (Much better than finding a bill, don't you think?)


Holy Moly....What a sweet blog..gorgeous pics..I just want to stay here all day!



I just happened upon your wonderful blog, and I actually squealed out loud, in delight! (Not sure my BOSS would be too happy to know I'm blogging at work... guess I better keep it down!!)

All I can say is "How delightful!!" I'm thrilled and will spend as much time as I dare reading your posts and looking at your lovely pictures.

Thanks for sharing your charmed life with us!

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
