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

Beautiful friends sharing a gorgeous day......priceless! Love the photos of the tea room. How charming!

Alison Gibbs

Oh what a delightful place so pretty.Oh my look at those yummy desserts.


Good morning sweet Kim :)

It sounds like you both had a wonderful time. It's been so much fun reading about your outings here and at Rhoda's blog. That tea room is not only darling, but the menu looks absolutely scrumptious :)

Have a beautiful day...
hugs and love,


Sweet garden. Sweet friends. Sweet time in a lovely place. I would love to have been there to join you two. ~Adrienne~

Brenda Kula

Sounds like a lovely day. Every time I think of the name Rhoda, a name I seldom hear, I think of that TV show! Is she like that Rhoda? Anyway, what's more fun than a day with a girlfriend, lovely flowers, and a sweet little place to have lunch? Can't get much better than that, Kim.

Pinkie Denise

Hello Kim,
Sounds like you had a lovely visit with your friend. What a lovely place to visit and spend time and the lunch menu looks wonderful. Yes, I would love to have a little pink cottage. My first home we painted a soft pink rose color. I still call it my little pink house. I do now have pink as one of my trim colors on my green
house. Thank for sharing your lovely day Pinkie Denise


Hi Kim,
What beautiful photos. Sounds like you ladies had a blast while out and about.

Gee, I think I would have ordered the Cream of Asparagus soup - yummy!

So, what dessert did you have?

Happy May Day, Kim!


I completely agree with you! Red is my first favorite color, then pink! Your photos of it are just gorgeous!! You are so lucky to have such a good friend there to do these things with. Happy May Kim!


Thanks for sharing such a wonderful day. Those places stay in your mind forever.

This is a lovely place to spend some time. Pink houses can be so enchanting! Susan


Hi Kim
What an adorable pink place. My house is yellow too but if I could I would paint it pink and have light aqua shutters. Hubby probably wouldn't agree but a girl can dream can't she. You had the best day, my favorite kind to have, eating and shopping. Thanks for the beautiful photos and I will be sure and check Rhoda's blog out. Happy May Day!

LeAnn :)

What pretty pictures! I wish I was gutsy enough to live in a pink house because I absolutely love it! And those desserts....mmmmm...

~ Good day Kim,
Your pictures of the pretty pink house, Lavender and Lace, and those mouth watering desserts were so easy on the eye this morning!!!! Thank you so much for your talent and ablity to capture so many "precious moments" for all of us to see. It really brightens and shines my days. Even when it's not so sunny or warm out here in upstate New York. Enjoy !

~ Stephanie

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

What a wonderful, magical place. I want to live in a pink house too!


Aw, i'd love to have a tearoom! How lucky you have such a pretty one nearby!
Do you know we almost bought a pink victorian house before we bought the one we ended up with. It was called the Barbie house by the kids in the neighborhood! LOL!


If that is not the cutest little place...I know ya'll had a blast - going over to Rhoda's to check it out. The flowers are stunning!!!!

I just love the tea room. My friends and I have gone to them in the past and they are a delight. So sweet and peaceful. And that dessert! Wow!!!!!!

Miss Jean

I just love the tea room. My friends and I have gone to them in the past and they are a delight. So sweet and peaceful. And that dessert! Wow!!!!!!

Now isn't that house just the cutest!? Kim, I left a May Day surprise by your door, but you'll need to visit my blog to get it. How would that be? Hope your day is so beautiful. Just like you! Love,Rachel

Loved your post and the flowers ~
The tea room is gorgeous. Glad you and your friend had a wonderful day.

christy in georgia

Pretty in Pink! Love it!


Those. Desserts. Look. WONDERFUL!!!


That menu looked delicious and you just *had* to blow it up so we could read it. Positively evil of you!!



What a delightful garden and tea room! I'm glad you and Rhoda were able to spend time together and enjoy each other's company so much :o)I can't wait to start planting flowers around here.....only a couple more weeks now!

Dawn Gahan

Accidentally posted my "pink house" comment on your "yellow daisy lampshade" post, so I'll add here, where it correctly belongs, that your photography is so so beautiful. Your posts are always so chock-full of pix. You inspire me to be a little more word-conservative on my posts and amp up the use of photos. Makes for such a lovely visit to your blog.

The Gahan Girls


It is so wonderful that the two of you have been able to spend time together.

Lavender and Lace looks absolutely delightful. We have a fine linen store here by that name, and it is wonderful, too.

I can't think of anything more perfect than a pink or yellow house.


HI Kim...what a delightful little tea room! The tea houses in my city have all closed up for one reason or another and I certainly miss going there. These photos remind me of some sweet moments with my girls.

Annette Marcum

I discovered your site and have so enjoyed it. I love the Paula Deen Tour. We plan a vacation to Hilton Head and we will now spend some time in Savannah.
I like your yellow house and I dream of a front porch.
My husband and I pastor a church in WV.
I am a mommy of 2 children. CK out my site, I am adding you to my favorites.
The tea house looks devine... Nice to meet you.

Annette Marcum

My blogsite is


what a darling lunch spot.and the gardens are so pretty.

thanks for sharing the pictures of the fun.
hope you have a lovely weekend!


Yellow, rose... in any case precious!

Saludos, Ana!

Mary Isabella

You take amazing photos. Everything is stunning. I know you both had an awesome time.....Mary


Kim, you took my breath away with this magical pink post. I loved everything from the pink house to the pink flowers and that decadent looking dessert.

Cassie Shella

Hi Kim, I must admit I'm a little envious of your lovely afternoon. But ahh, I will think of that wonderful tea room, the beautiful roses, and the lovely lace curtain in the window when I get stressed today! Thank you, Cassie


Hi Kim,

What a wonderful place and what a wonderful way to spend a day :)


Kathy :)

Hi Kim,

Have a nice week-end,

Hi Kim!
Well you had me at "Lavender" What beautiful pictures. How fun it must have been to spend some time with Rhoda. I love visiting her blog.

Lavender and Lace looks like my cup of tea :-).

I love the little house. So pretty. Sounds like you had a great time.


Beautiful pictures! And I love tea rooms...wish I could visit in person.

I love every bit of it, Kim! Sounds like you and Rhoda had a lovely day!



Hi Kim,
The Lavender and Lace Tea Room looks wonderful! I too, could live in a pink house!

I must admit....I'm so jealous! I want to spend a day like that with you too.

Isn't Rhoda sweet? I'm so glad she and I have been able to spend time together several times...and will again soon.

What a cute place and those desserts look delish!


Denise Schuler


Love all your photos. Denise


I agree Kim!

I love Pink and I would love to have the opportunity to decorate a little cottage completely in the soft shades of pink.

I love all of your pictures. Thanks for sharing!



Sounds like a perfect way to spend the day and you have the wonderful pictures to show for it.

The gardens are beautiful and so is that cake-lol. Yummy.

Have a great weekend.


hmm.. it's nice, but you know, it's really floofy. i know that's the style they're going for, but it's OVER THE TOP. and your place is perfect... for me. i love all the red you use in it. and yellow is a sunny bright colour, but it's not so incredibly feminine that it hurts. you know?


ohhhhhh... yummy dessert.......lovely tea room.....

Thank you 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
