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

Oh girl, you are on fire these days! First an article in Artful Blogging which, unfortunately, I never did find ::sniff sniff:: and now Romantic Country! I went to 4 different places the other night hoping to find it so I could see Cindy's feature but now I'm even more determined to find a copy. Congratulations!

Oh! Congratulations, Kim! I love Chez Fifi too, and am a visitor over there. I'm going to run out and get a copy of the magazine so I can see your article! How exciting!

P.S. I had to make my blog invitation only, because of a stalker....ugh...but please don't let that deter you from coming by for a visit. Hopefully I'll be able to lift the "ban" in a month or so. :(

Congratulations!!!! I can hardly wait to find a copy of the magazine.
I love your new banner, however; I do have to say I am partial to the doggie tho :o). I have a little Miss Maggie myself. (long hair, mini dachshund....still a baby she just turned 13 weeks).

I picked this magazine up at the supermarket last week and skimmed through it. But I did not notice your name! I generally keep these, so I will go back and check it back out in detail. It is a wonderful opportunity. Congratulations!


Oh, the luck of the Irish be on you ! What great news. We are all so happy for you. This is the start of something BIG and I want to be first in line when yo write a whole book! Thanks for sharing such good news.


Good for you! Can't wait to see the magazine. It looks beautiful.

Sondra Spencer

Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog. Found it a few weeks ago. Love all the color and how you use it in your decorating. Congratulations on your article in Romantic Homes! ( By the way, I also have a furry friend named Maggie!)

I also love your music choices!


Put my name in, please. But, if I don't win I'll buy it for sure to read your article! Congratulations!


What a dream come true! I can't wait to check it out. I usually drive an hour away to pick up this magazine, lol, I should just get a subscription - but it gives me an excuse to drive in and see a good friend.

Nobody in my dinky little town sells it!

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

That is fantastic Kim! I will have to go see if it is at the book store yet. We always seem to get them later out here. You certainly deserve this. You are a great writer and have a really good "eye" for decorating. I hope to see your name in many more articles.


CONGRATULATIONS! ...and why shouldn't she believe in you?! You have a beautiful blog and I'm sure that your blog-writing talent is shown in the Romantic Homes article. I can't wait to see it.

If I should be the lucky winner, would you please autograph it for me?!!


Mommy McCole, I am very happy for you! I can't wait to move back home and share more Goodwill trips and Home Tours with you! Yay for fun magazine articles! You're the best!

Olivia :)

Jeanne from Ohio


I haven't found the magazine yet here in New Hampshire. I have a couple more places to check, but I would love to be in your drawing. I LOVE your blog music. Sometimes I just minimize your blog and leave it playing while I check out other sites...LOL! When I was young, my Dad bought us a stereo for the first time and "Stranger on The Shore" was one of the four 45's he bought to play on it. He has been gone a long time now, but like you, whenever I hear this song..Dad is back in my thoughts!



I have secretly been reading your blog for a while now. I decided to come out of hiding to say I would love to read the article you wrote. Please put me in your drawing and congrats! I also want to tell you just how much I love your blog. It is so beautiful! I love the yellow & red color combination that seems to be your signature. It is always so cheerful. Thanks!

The Summer Kitchen Interiors

Congratulations Kim!!! Can't wait to pick up a copy to read the article for ourselves.

Enjoy the moment!
Karrie and Karla


I'm so delighted for you Kim...CONGRATULATIONS!

OH! Another dream come true! So happy for you Kim!


Will be purchasing that magazine tomorrow! Congratulations!


Dang it!
My husband surprised me by buying Romantic Country magazine because I told him I couldn't find it in 3 stores and it turned out to be last months. He said he is going to keep looking though... what a sweetie :)
I hope he finds it...


Congrats. That has been one of my dreams as well, to write an article for a magazine. I must say I have been enjoying your blog. I only found it a few days ago and have been reading back posts every night. I love the cozy feel of your house and am amazed at the wonderful thrift store finds you have purchased.

Congrats again,



Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

Where to start? I LOVE your new banner Kim! And congrats on your writing piece in Romantic Country! I am sure it is fabulous!! I don't have my copy yet and I wish I did, because I think there is a little something about me in there too :-)
Fifi is a marvel! And she has great taste when it comes to picking her writers my friend!


Amazing!!! How wonderful you must feel...I will be subscribing to Romantic Homes...and I will make my way to the bookstore to buy my first issue...

Your blog is a very bright part of my day...congrats on your published article..

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

I have been trying to get a copy! I have been to town three times looking for it! I can't wait to see!
Congratulations Kim! I am so happy for you!

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
