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

Shopscad is a great idea! What inspiration must be there.

That coffee shop looks adorable Kim. I love the painted vintage hangig window.



Looks like so much fun! Wish I were there!

~ Donna


I soooo love to travel with you sweet friend! You take us to the nicest of places.


Sweet Cottage Dreams

More please!!!!!!!! My favorites are the vintage dresses and the student's that settee, too!



I love the campus shop! How creative! My daughter would love the vintage clothing store too. She used to sell vintage clothing on eBay.


Love, love it all. We always tease Gracie that she will have to attend SCAD...she loves art and design so it would be a great fit right? And it would give us the excuse to return to Savannah A LOT!!!


Teresa ~ French Poppy

Okay now I really want to move there. My hubby is from Kentucky, he would probably go for it. :) I am in love with the art school!!! I should talk my daughter into going to school there!


Alison Gibbs

What great stores.Fabulous goodies in the Art School store


So great to continue or tip. Thanks for taking us along.

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home

I just found a beautiful antique french settee just like the one in your photo on Craigslist for only $125! It needs to be reupholstered and I would have done it in off white just like that one if only I had room for it. It's frustrating to let a deal like that go!

I love looking at all your photos! I almost feel like I've been there myself!


Can I go next time?! Looks like so much fun!!

Daisy Steiner

Wow, looks like a great place to visit.


I adore the geraniums painted on the old window. It looks like a wonderful place to browse and shop.


Kim, would love to see the college shop in person. It would be very interesting seeing the artwork of the students, in person. It looks wonderful in the photos!



Your blog is like eye candy! I love Savannah and recognize a few of the shops in your pictures. My husband tried to talk me into an impromptu visit up there this weekend but I nixed the idea. I really regret it now!


Kim, Tell me that you got to Vintage General on Broughton. It's just about the prettiest store I have ever seen.

Rosie's Whimsy

Your shopping trip make my credit card trigger so itchy! LOL


To be continued? More, please!!!!

Gracias, gracias, gracias!!!

Hooked on Houses

I haven't been to Savannah for so long. This is making me eager to get back there! -Julia

Oh how I have enjoyed catching up here today. I absolutley LOVE Savannah and you have captured it so well. The shopping is fabulous and the displays are all so inspirational. Did you dine at Lady and Son? My first introduction to true Southern food! I have such fond memories of my last visit-- passing student housing and seeing SCAD students hanging out of open windows! Of course we have SCAD here but it's not quite the same as that setting! Thanks for the great photos Kim! You always share so generously!


Oh! Seriously coveting that red cupboard in the third photo!

Sharon@ C'est Chouette

Savannah is my all time favorite cities~ I will live in Savannh some day. I love the SCAD photos~ I dreamed of sending DD#1 to Scad~ but she wanted Tulane~ and ended up here in SD for College~ alas my days as a true Southern Lady are on hold.


Oh how fun, Kim! The SCAD store was so unique & I loved the vintage one too. You really got some pretty shots with your eye and that camera! You are SO good. Get your shopping shoes on, I'm comin' to town tomorrow!


Oh thank you Kim! I needed a break from my studies and decided a little trip to Daisy Cottage would be just the fix. Getting to go shopping made it even better :)

Happy Saturday!


Joy at Cupids Charm

Hi Kim! Thank you so much for all the wonderful photos of Savannah. One of my most favorite places on earth. My sister-in-law and her husband are there right now for the weekend. They had never been to Savannah, so I gave her your blog link so she could get a peek before her trip. She loved your site and the pictures. So this week, you've been like our own personal travel agent! Thanks for posting such lovely photos. Have a great weekend. xoxo ~ Joy J.

Daisy Cottage

You all are SO welcome! I LOVE sharing with you! :-)


Hi sweet Kim :)

My Annie would love shopSCAD. She wants to be an artist when she grows up :) What a wonderful learning environment they have.

The vintage shops there remind me of Melrose out in California. Those dresses are darling!

Thank you for writing those encouraging words to me about the farmhouse. You brought tears of hope to my eyes as I read them. You'll never know how much that meant to me. Thank you too for ALWAYS being so sweet to me. I'm so glad I found you and Daisy Cottage :)

Love and hugs,

Rachel Going

Oh my word Kim, What's that you say about wishing you were that talented? You have tons of talent dripping from every pore of you body...I believe I see it running out your ears my dear! xoRachel


I'm really enjoying your trip, I want to move to Savannah and I've never even been there! xo, suzy

The art and design store just oozes creativity. And the thrift stores--------makes me want to grab my purse and jump in. Diane


I'm so glad you enjoyed our city! Your pictures surely did it justice.
The SCAD store is amazing.... so much
One of our favorite things to do on the weekends is to go to the Candy Kitchen and catch the flying fresh taffy- then enjoy a picnic lunch in Forsyth park.

Savannah is a beautiful city- Hope everyone who wants to visit DOES!

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 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
