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

April 22, 2008



The Paris Market is a beautiful shop! Thanks for taking us along with you ~ there were so many things I wanted to buy!
Have a wonderful day!


I recognized that shop from the first pic. I loved that store! We spent a long time there just soaking it all in. Even my hubby enjoyed taking it all in!


I have always wanted to visit Savannah, but would clearly need a large moving van.....


Your photos are breathtaking! Thanks for taking me along on your journey!

Brenda Kula

Thank you so much for the tour. I needed that distraction today of all days. Especially loved the bathroom sink. Have fun!


Oh Kim, what FUN!!! I just took the stroll through Savannah AND visited the wonderful shops. Your pictures are so beautiful!!! Thank you so much for the virtual tour.

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

I have been to Savannah many times and have not been there! Thank you Kim, for the lovely tour of the shop. I am going there this fall, and I will make sure I stop into the Paris Market! Look at all of those stunning chandeliers!!!


Thanks for the sharing your lovely shopping adventure. Loved all the stores - you take such unique pictures.



Kim, that was SO much fun! Can we go again very soon. You take the BEST pics, girl. What an eye. Can't wait to go shopping with you in person next week!


Alison Gibbs

Kim what a fabulous place to shop. Thanks for share more of Savannah with us.


I loved that shop. I especially loved the blue balony fretwork in the basement. I thought I recognized your cookie from the other post. Great eye for composition of pictures.


OMG, is EVERYTHING eye candy? It looks wonderful!


Oh, how I wish my computer had a "scratch'n sniff" feature!! However I am CERTAIN I could smell the lavender and the coffee and those wonderful many great aromas must have been floating around you :) That wash basin did look like it was filled with lavender pellets and the bags were nearby to be filled...what a clever idea! SOOO enjoying this tour, Kim!


Oh, the displays. Don't you just love the up-side-down chairs and letter A's. Think I'll go take a whiff of a lavendar sachet, close my eyes and pretend I am there in the lovely shop you found. Thank you so very much for sharing. perryjane


Lovely! Especially that sink full of lavender!


what great photos!


Another charming display. I do love to shop!


Kim, thanks for the shopping tour. I saw things in every photo that would have come home with me.

Rosie's Whimsy

Oh, that was fun! I am afraid if I lived close to those fabulous places, my credit card would soon be maxed out!

Hi Kim,
Now that is a shopping trip I truly enjoyed and I didn't spend a dime. I need to do more shopping like that.

Funny. I knew exactly where you were shopping by the first photo. The Paris Market is delicious. oh, so yummy for the eyes - and well, all the senses. i love it!


I goes without saying that I love it all, but my true favorites are that wonderful birdcage and the music on the chalkboard. How clever was that?!!!

Theresa * Take A Sentimental Journey *

Kim, Oh my , don't ya just love shops like this one. Come visit with me sometime & have a cup of tea ...U>


OOOOO, KIM...I can't even imagine the wonderous time you had, shopping thru this fairy land. Soooo beautiful; all of it. You MUST have had fairy dust sprinkled all over you body when you left there. I am on pins and needles to see what you BOUGHT on your trip to SAVANNAH !


LOVING these pictures! My grandparents lived in Savannah (we still have antiques in my mother's house here from Jim Williams of Midnight in the Garden "fame") and I was born there. Also, my husband and I got engaged on a vacation there and bought my ring in an antique store down by the river.

Sigh...definitely time to go back for another visit.



Oh thank you Kim for knowing what we all need to see! My heart just soaked all this up today....ahhhhh. ;) Sometimes our souls long for more beauty...this day was one of those for me. Thank you again.

You are such a good photographer. These pics could all easily be found in a magazine. So beautiful! -Julia :-)

Denise Mares

What a lovely place. I wish I could visit too... maybe someday I will have the opportunity. Thanks for sharing!



His photos are impressive always! It could spend hours here to me!


Swoon. Oh my goodness. The lavender in the sink - so many precious details...can't wait for more!


Hi Kim :)

The store looks like an amazing place to shop. I think I might've been so busy looking around that I would have forgotten to buy anything. The bed is gorgeous and I loved the stacked chairs. So cute :) Thank you for sharing your trip with us. I'm enjoying it so much.

Oh and... YOU are the one that inspired and touched my heart with your love for Daisy Cottage and your family (including, of course, Miss Maggie). Thank YOU sweet Kim :)

I see Miss Maggie above, so I'm off to take a look at your other post....



Loved the tour...great pictures! Felt like I was back in Savannah...a place I have visited several times since I live in Georgia. Thanks so much for sharing those!
Hope you got to see Bonaventure...great place for photographs, also.


What a gorgeous store - I'm very jealous :) Thanks for sharing!

Jenny (thepolkadotpixie)

Oh my goodness!!! I have always longed for a visit to Savannah, and now it's been moved to the top of my "must visit" list! Thanks for the photos, they are tiding me over until I can make the trip! :-) -Jenny


Tres belle!!! I love all the shops. You're such a lucky girl!!!


Sweet Kim,
Thank you for sharing these photos, they are beyond beautiful! I would love to be locked in this store overnight and look around to my heart's content - that first bed and that sink full of lavender - gosh, well I'm finally at a loss for words ~Tres Magnifique!

Theresa of Garden Antqs Vintage

Cassie Shella

I've never been to Savannah but after seeing the shopping I will really have to go some day. I LOVE the lavender in the sink! What an awsome way to display something like that! You take wonderful architectural pictures, keep taking them! I also like the one of Maggie hiding from you behind the flowers, she is too cute.


I absolutely love your blog....It makes my day to stop by and see what is going on at Daisy Cottage...Keep it up!!!!


WoW!! Savannah has always been a dream of mine and you put me right there. Your photos are amazingly beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing.

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 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!

Thank you Karen!

Thank You Betty Jo!
