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

Hi Kim,

Georgia is one of my favorite places (my best friend lives there) and although I have been several times, I go to a town just a short distance from Atlanta. I have always wanted to see Savannah, thank you so much for taking me with you, it is just like I imagined it would be! :)



Beautiful photos! I have always wanted to visit there. Thank you for sharing!


Pam Kern

I've wanted to visit Savannah ever since reading Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. What a lovely tour you've given us! I'm even more anxious to see it now. Pam


What a beautiful tour! Thanks for taking us w/ you. Christy


How can you make me homesick for a place I've never seen before?


Thanks for the lovely walking tour of Savannah. I can't wait to see the rest of your pictures.

Looking forward to your next post!

Sheila from west Michigan


Absolutely gorgeous photo's! My favorites were the windows full of flowers-lovely inspiration! I always enjoy your blog and style. Thank you!


Thanks for sharing your walk. We were in Savannah last October - your pictures brought back wonderful memories!


We were in Savannah in February and I have two posts on our wonderful visit (February 28th post). I'd love for you to visit my blog and check it out at

Your pictures are fabulous....what kind of camera do you have?


Kimberly C.

Thank you! That was so beautiful and perfectly charming. I have never been to Savannah. I must go now.

Blessings, Kim C.


Kim, thank you for taking me along on your stroll through Savannah. You have no idea how timely it was. I was supposed to be there this week and instead I am stuck home with a stress fracture in my foot.

Pat in Texas


Even on a cold, cloudy day - beautiful! Loved the architecture, the flowers, the trees, the people - the sights and sounds must be especially wonderful in person. Thanks for the stroll, dear Kim!

Susan Drysdale

Wow! I'm even more excited about visiting Savannah in October. Your post was so beautiful. My blog is The Little Yellow House. I just had some pictures of Savannah from the internet. What a lovely place it is.


GAW-JUS! We went to Savannah last November for our 4th wedding anniversary and fell in love. I just love the architectural details on all the buildings!


Thank you for sharing your Daisy-eyed view of Savannah. I love all your red doors. My dad was a southern boy and often mentioned how he loved the city. Some day I will visit. Until then, this is a special treat. perryjane


Awwwwwww...that was soooo nice! Thanks for inviting me.

My family just left this morning so in between laundry and putting the house back together (smile), I'm enjoying catching up on what's been happening with all of my blog buddies.



Hi Kim
Thanks for taking me along on your walk in Savannah. I enjoyed seing it through your eyes.


Thank You for the lovely walk! Loved it!

Henriette KB

Thank you for taking me along with you on that lovely walk! Loved it, Savannah is really beautiful.

Thank you so much for the walk through Savana through the lens of your camera. I have always wanted to visit that lovely town and through this post I have seen many of the walks, porches and flower boxes, Thanks again for the walk I did enjoy so much. Sharon K

Alison Gibbs

Thanks for a fabulous tour of Savannah. What a beautiful place, My favourite photo would have to be the trees in the second photo.


Kim, these are beautiful photo's of Savannah. Now that I have taken this tour I want to go back. I was there about 10 years ago and was enchanted with the city. I can't wait for the next's like a I'm reading a book that I can't put down.


Hi Kim :)

Savannah is so magical. I really enjoyed the pictures. I felt like you gave a true sense of what being there would really feel like. I love the architecture of course, but the oaks.... so heavenly. Perfect word :)

I hope you're having a beautiful Sunday.

Hooked on Houses

These photos are amazing!! Absolutely gorgeous. I enjoyed the tour of Savannah so much today. (That little dog peeking out of the window was too cute.)

I just have to say how surprised, honored, and thrilled I was to stop by and see you added Hooked on Houses to your blogroll, Kim. Thank you so much! You made my day. -Julia :-)


Aaaaaaah, just where I want to live. Well, maybe on St. Simons Island. But that's close.

An Enchanted Cottage

Oh my gosh - you outdid yourself... Those photos were just beautiful. I've been to the lovely city of Atlanta a couple of times, but never to Savannah... (sigh)... Time for this New Englander to set her GPS for Savannah I think... Donna


Ever since I read "the book", I've said I am going to Savannah someday. Hope so, anyway!

Lovely photos, Kim!


I'd love to go there! Great pictures Kim,beautiful!!!


Kim, you really captured old Savannah SO well!! What a treat to see all your pics, you have such a great eye for taking those photos. I loved them all & it makes me want to go back to Savannah too. It is truly a walking city with gorgeous architecture everywhere you turn. I'm so glad you had a good trip! Miss you and looking forward to our next outing!



A beautiful and most interesting stroll...I felt as if I WAS walking along with you..such beauty everywhere....thanks...I lowed it!


Kim, I've always wanted to go here. You certainly captured some beautiful photos. You're an excellent photographer, too! I always think of the book, and movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" - it's a hoot!


Hi Kim! I've always wanted to go to Savannah and you have made me want to go even more! When I think of Savannah, I think of the book/movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" - it's just a hoot! You're an excellent photographer too! I just love your blog and Miss Maggie is so precious.


Lovely photos! Thank you for sharing!


Well, no wonder that they say that Savannah is a beautiful place. Thank you for the tour, I feel like I just stepped onto the Streets with you. Karen


Thank you for sharing your trip. I can think of only one word to describe it - beautiful

Rosie's Whimsy

What a fabulous city! One of these days I really want to visit.....until then thanks so much for your wonderful photos. I loved them all and I marveled at all the ivy! :-) Rosie

What a lovely tour. At the end of a hard day, that is just the breath of fresh air I needed. Thank you soooo much for letting us live vicariously through you!


Miss Jean

Savannah is high on my list of places I want to go to. I have relatives in Georgia so I just may be able to go one day. The pictues you took are excellant!

Rachel Going

I've never been to Savannah. Thank you so much for the lovely vacation. I loved the red door with white trim, the romantic porches!!!!!!!and the adorable puppy gazing yearningly out on the misty world and beautiful you, Kim. xoRachel


Wow! I haven't been by in a while, but surely enjoyed a tour of a place that's on my list of places to see, but I haven't had the time. Makes me want to hop in my car and go!

The Decorated House

Hey Kim~
I loved seeing a favorite city through your eyes. What a beautiful place. Made me yearn for the feel of walking down those streets again.
Beautiful pictures!
Hugs, Donna


I enjoyed your lovely pictures of charming Savannah.


Soulfully beautiful!! Who needs Paris?


Those pictures certainly put my L.A. post pics to shame:) We are planning to go to Savannah and Charleston next spring; now thanks to you I can barely wait.



Oh my, I think I've lost my heart. I must go to Savannah to look for it.



Oh my word! Your photos are absolutely stunning. I say you contact their visitor's bureau and see about contributing to their website. Holy smokes, woman. I can actually feel the "air" and...well...I'm speechless and that doesn't happen often. ;>

Thank you so much for sharing,


Thank you for the lovely walk around your beautiful city or was it just down one street? What a great idea too. I think I just might try it as I take my morning walk around Christchurch, New Zealand.


so very pretty...lovely architecture..and a true Southern charm.thanks for sharing the photos.


Thanks for a beautiful tour!


Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your pics!


Yes, it was absolutely heavenly. And, exquisite, glorious, breathtaking, divine and awe-inspiring. You just can't be that old Southern charm.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Mary Isabella

It is not only enchanting but very beautiful...Wishing you a beautiful start to the week...Mary


That just took my breath away! I'm going to try using your pictures to intice my DH. Maybe they will convince him to take me there! Thanks for the inspiration!

Wow! Awesome photos...thanks!

Kathleen Grace

Georgia is one of those places I have always wanted to visit, especially the older cities where the architecture is so detailed and beautiful. Thanks for the armchair tour. THe weather looked beautiful and the buildings and landscape were breathtaking:>)


Beautiful photos!

I just found your lovely blog and I'll be back to read more!


you are right heavenly...what a gorgeous place to visit...Loved ALL your pictures esp. the poddle in the window.


I've always wanted to visit Savannah--your pix show it to be just a beautiful as I thought it would be. Thank you :-)


oh my goodness, we were just there 2 weekends ago ( small world...)even though we've been in Georgia now for 2 years ( can't believe we've already been here 2 years...) I've never seen Savannah until now! You really captured some BEAUTIFUL shots of such a beautiful & historical place! My whole family LOVED Savannah ( & Tybee Island too....) It's such a joy to live so close to a beautiful place like this & we will be going back soon!
Thank you for sharing your pictures!


that was so much fun! i want to do that in my town!!
what great happy captions you caught!


Oh, thank you for taking us on a stroll around Savannah. I loved my visit to that city several years ago. I was only there for one day and there was so much I would love to have seen or been able to see up close. I'd love to take my sweetheart and go for several days to explore and stroll around with camera in hand! Can't wait to see more. ~Adrienne~


What a breathtaking stroll. Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures.



wowsa Kim! You've done a fantastic job of capturing Beautiful Savvanah! I have spent time there and I felt like I was in a fairy tale eye candy everywhere you turn. Truly a charming city like no other! Beautiful Beautiful! xo


Just Beautiful. My daughter moved to Savannah this past Saturday.
Did you get a chance to eat at Elizabeth on 37th? I am anxious to visit again. Thanks for sharing your photos.

Dawn Gahan


Here I am living in Georgia and have never been to Savannah. A crime, especially after seeing the pix you took. I NEED to get there.

The Gahan Girls


Hi Kim,
Savannah is one of my most favorite places to visit! My daughter lived there a few years ago and we loved everything about the town. You have captured it beautifully! I love all of the architecture and lush green plants and flowers. I need to go visit again soon ~ you made it look wonderful!
Thank you!

Peaceful Spirit

I've only been to Savannah once and didn't quite see it this way. Your photos are so beautiful, I feel I should go back....right now! (Ok, maybe I'll wait for the weekend.) I live in Asheville, North Carolina, so we're fairly close. You'd probably love Asheville. We've got some great photo ops of our own.

I love the photo of the little white dog (poodle? bichon?) in the window.

By the way, I love the music! Is it new? I stopped off at your site a few weeks ago and didn't hear anything, but that could be because my husband had our speakers turned down. How do you do it?

So where are you taking us next?

Roxie Meiske

Beautiful tour. Thanks so much for sharing it. I must say it reminds me very much of New Orleans (pre Katrina) I love to walk that city. My husband and I went for our 20 th wedding anniversary. We went for a ride in a pink carriage pulled by a mule name Harley David...what a ride we had. Thanks again. It is just beautiful. You have a gift for picture taking too. Roxie


thaank you for the pictures, I just applied to grad school in Savanannah, so fingers crossed!

You make me appreciate the place we call home!

Mila in PA

What lovely photos! You really captured the aura of Savannah. My in-laws live in Hilton Head and we always spend a day in Savannah when we are down south visiting them. What a nice treat to see the sites of such a beautiful city on a cloudy day here in Pennsylvania. Thanks for sharing---I love your blog!


I'm glad you enjoyed your time in Savannah. It's too lovely for words and filled to the brim with history.
Best wishes


Oh Wow! When I win the lottery I am coming over !
What a beautiful city you are in.


What a gorgeous gal Savannah is. Thanks for sharing all those wonderful details with us, with such affection :)


How much is that doggy in the window?
I love the photos, as usual.
I think the architecture that man has created for this lovely historic town in beautiful, but I think the architecture that God created is even more awesome. I love the trees with the Spanish moss dripping from the limbs. The branches of the trees have such great detail that they bend and twist in all directions. The picture of the squirrel is pretty marvelous. Since you were able to get such a great close up.
I only wish I could have dropped a few pounds on the walk, but the tour was fabulous, thanks!


Incredible photos Kim!!! We are going there in June and I'm so excited now!!!

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

Beautiful photos Kim! Enjoyed the trip!


Hi Kim,
Drop by my blog. I have something for you.

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! The blue hydrangeas against that "brown" house are spectacular. Wow! I could almost feel the humidity and the southern atmosphere oozing from the buildings! Thanks for the wonderful tour!!


Wonderful,love to visit sometime,but holland is a far away country!!So.. I visit your lovely blog..


I LOVE Savannah...your pictures capture it perfectly.


And I thought I posted a lot of pictures, lol. Seriously, they are beautiful and I'm happy you shared them all.

LeAnn Huntington

Hi Kim,
What absolutely fabulous photographs. I have never been to Savannah but it is definitely on my wish list of places to go.

LeAnn :)


I so adore Savannah. It is one of my favorite cities in the world. I loved seeing your photos as they brought back sweet memories of our last trip. Bill and I went down for our 25th anniversary. Hmm...that was 5 years ago. Maybe another trip should be planned for next year!





Kim, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for this fantastic post of my favorite city. I love it so much I named my daughter Savannah. It is magical as well as beautiful. The history and the gardens blow me away. I so enjoyed looking at the photos and remembering the wonderful times we have had there. I am ready to go back. I just wish it wasn't on the other side of the country from me. When Savannah was 2 we visted Savannah for the first time. My little sweetheart thought the city was named after her. She was amazed that all the signs had her name on them. For those few days she was a star. Everyone was so friendly and feeded her notion. Fabulous memories. I hope you loved it as much as I do.

Becky from Tennessee

Oh Kim, Savannah is one of my favorite places to visit, too. The parks are laid out so beautifully, the people are friendly, and the food is wonderful! Your pictures are absolutely beautiful.....please tell me what your camera is. You should do a coffee table book with those pictures! Becky

Vicki K.

So unbelievably beautiful it makes my heart ache- I have wanted to see Savannah as long as I can remember. Thank you so very much for sharing these gorgeous photos with us!!


you have a great eye for photography!


Thank you so very much for taking me window shopping and the stroll with you. I loved every minute of it. I also loved the company.
Thank You, Nana


Beautiful shots! Do you know if the dual fountain has a name? We have a similar one near here in Saratoga Springs. They are named Spit and Spat and they spray each other with water, lol.


I just adore your blog. I came across it while reading a post on Rhoda's one day.
It is such a joy to read.

I am moving to South Carolina in two months and my Aunt and I are going to drive to Savannah to visit and go to Paula Deens Resturant.

I would really love to try and get tickets to her show. My Aunt would just LOVE that, I think she may be the biggest Paula fan around LOL

Well it really was a pleasure looking at your pictures. Looks like a great time.

Oh and I have to say your pups are the cutest. I have a little pup and she is part Min. Schnausher and part Min Dashaund. Just love her to pieces.

Cyndi M

Your photos make me homesick. I lived just south of Savannah for years and loved to visit. Thanks for sharing your visit.

As a Savannah native (who has recently moved to the Midwest), I have to give you a big THANK YOU for the lovely stroll through downtown. You've warmed my heart with nostalgia and given me great pride for the city I still call HOME. Warm wishes and many thanks...

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!

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 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 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 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
