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

Every Spring I rediscover the "pink" girl in me. The flowers and cookie just tickle my senses. Can't wait to hear more! :-) Rosie


"Best Pinkilicious, from my house to yours!"...or something like that, haha!

Ooooh! I love pink! and Paris too?! My book club is taking a trip to Paris this summer (via our reading selection!) So I was doubly intriqued by your post. Looking forward to more on your trip.
Hugs and Blessings, Marann


Hi Kim
We stopped in Savannah for a few hours on the way to visit my sister in law in Jacksonville last fall. I discovered that shop too. Wasn't it fabulous? That was BB (before blogging) so I didn't think to take any photos.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Kathie Truitt

That is so mean! I want to hear the story NOW! (I am stopping my foot and pouting.)

I guess I'll just have to wait until you get back. Don't forget, now!

Looks like you're having a great time. I envy your adventurous life.

kathie truitt

Okay, now I feel stupid (not unusual for me). I thought you said you couldn't wait to share this STORY with us. Instead you said STORE - LOL!

Susan Drysdale

Hi, I can't wait to hear about Savannah! I'm going there in October. So I want to know all the great places to visit. I'm a new blogger but I've been reading your blog for months. I finally had to start, too.
You're welcome to visit me at the Little Yellow House.

christy in georgia

Ironically, we are exchanging our house with a family from Paris. So, they will be coming to Savannah - and we will be going there. I bet they would get a kick out of the pink towers!


I can't wait to hear all the fun things you did and good food you ate.

I'll be patiently waiting..... kind of.
No really, I'll wait.

Betty in Oklahoma


A pink Eiffel tower sugar cookie sounds so scrummy!


We have been to both of these places and yes, so wonderful. Savannah IS one of the most special spots in the world. I look forward to returning soon.


Is there anything that doesn't look good in pink? I don't think so. Well, I think pink eyes is not a good thing, other than that, EVERYTHING looks good in pink. The store looks fabulous.

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Oh!! I love pink! I can't wait to see!


You lucky girl - you slipped away to Svannah! Isn't it a beautiful place - like stepping back in time in some places. DH and I stayed on Tybee Island in 2007 and drove through. Love the spanish moss hanging from the trees - its a magical place.

Devilish Southern Belle

Love the photos; epsecially of beautiful flowers!


I can hardly wait to see more pictures.

Joy at Cupids Charm

Hi Kim! I just found your blog and had to comment on your Savannah photos! I LOVE Savannah and we do a trip about every year and ALWAYS include dinner at The Old Pink House! You are right, it is wonderful. Can't wait to see the rest of your photos! xo ~ Joy J.

Rita Weiss

Oh Kim, I vote for you as Ms. Romantic for 2008! I'm off to find where they are taking votes....'cause you know they are...somewhere. I just adore your blog :)

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

Oh Kim! I visited that store through your link. I think the next time I go to Savannah, I will have to stop there. The Pink Restaurant looks so cute! Much nicer than Bernies on River Street!

LeAnn Huntington

Hi Kim,
I have always wanted to visit Savannah. I wondered why you hadn't posted all week, you've been on a road trip. Of course I love the pink, can't wait to see more.

LeAnn :)

Becky from Tennessee

Ohhhhhhh Kim! I absolutely love Savannah with all the pretty parks downtown and The Olde Pink House had the BEST she-crab soup I have ever eaten!!! Of course, it didn't compare to Paula's fried chicken and collard greens! LOL!! Seriously, I agree with you about The Olde Pink House. I also enjoyed shopping downtown and the shop you show was a particular favorite of mine.
Hope you, your family, and sweet Maggie have a great weekend! Becky

Miss Jean

Well, if pinklicious isn't a word then it should be. And a restaurant called The Pink House. How perfect can it get!



I can't wait to hear and see more. What lovely pictures!

Thanks! ~Donna


Welcome home Kim :)

I'm happy to hear that you had a wonderful time, but we all missed you as you can see ;) I can't wait to see your post about the trip. Get some rest and have a great nights sleep in your beautiful bed.

I don't expect pink when I come here! What a tasty looking treat.


Whoohoo, a pink post! I love it!!


That cookie looks yummy!

I can't wait for the pics!


Rachel Going

Kim, You trip looks like it was the best. I love the pink house...wouldn't it be fun to paint a house that color? xo Rachel


Welcome Home! and oh I cant wait to hear all about it! did u go to lady and sons? (Paula deens place)


WOW! You're the second blogger I've read about going to Savannah this past month! Everything looks lovely (especially what's left of that cookie)! =)


"Pinkilicious" is one of my daughter's favorite children's books, so indeed, it is a word -- welcome back! love the cookie...

The Decorated House

Hi Kim!
I sure hope you are feeling better now.
Just seeing those two pictures makes me ready to go back to that lovely southern city. Soon I hope.

We will make up for our missed visit soon, too.
Hugs, Donna

Janice Vincent

Kim..... I've eaten in The Old Pink House.... Isn't it just wonderful !!!


What a beautiful city! It must be really nice there this time of year.

Stephanie Bradley

Hi Kim,

I hope you are having a lovely time with your family and friends. My family and I just got back from our vacation to Florida. How coincidental that you are in Savannah. I was dying to have the chance to get a reservation at Paula Deen's restaraunt, when my husband pulled up to drop my daughter's and I off to go in, we realized after asking someone about the probability of getting in and she said that they were already booked for dinner. Oh well, maybe next time. However, I did buy the Deen Brother's signed cookbook! So far I've made two dishes since we got back and they came out so scrumptous!! After our stop in Paula's store, we walked around historic downtown Savannah. We ended up eating at Tubbys Tankhouse which was just ok. Anyway, I've missed you and Ms.Maggie so I am happy to be back.
~ Steph


The Pink House is my favorite resturant in Savannah. It is full of history. I love to listen to Gail downstairs in the bar. She sings a wonderful song called "Savannah Moon." I have brought my daughter, Savannhah, there twice and Gail has sung it to her. It is rumored that part of the Constitution was written there by Thomas Paine.


I just found your blog and love it. We go to Tybee Island every year so of course we always go to Savannah for a day. I have always wanted to eat at the pink house. Did you heard the ghost story about the house?

Theresa * Take A Sentimental Journey *

Great pics ! Come see me sometime !We'll have lemonade on the porch ! :0) :0) :0)

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
