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

You look cute as a bug in your daisy top. I hate having my picture taken too, but we are the only ones who see our own imperfections. You are beautiful:>)


Sweet little red birdhouse resting in the birdbath! Oh, my, a house with a pool!! Lucky little bird.

Wow! Your Daisy top looks adorable, as do you!

You have such a cute "clasiness" about you. This is my first time commenting on your blog and I must tell you...I am inspired by you. I hope to make my cottage as adorable and inviting as your's is. I always look forward to reading your blogs. God bless you!


Hey! I'm in Tennessee too!!

Kim, you are a doll and I love your top. So appropriate! You are such a cutie, you should never be worried about your picture.



Hi Kim,

You are so pretty and I love your yellow daisy top, it's very you :) See you when you get back.



Kim you and your top are both darling!
Have a great time, whatever you are up to.
Will miss you while you're gone. Bon Voyage!

Suzanne Harmon

You look cute as a button in that top, Kim. :-) I'm sure some happy little bird is gong to feel like it hit the jackpot when it takes up residency in it's new red house. It will be singing up a storm for you and your neighbors!



Cute as a daisy! Love the plates on the wall behind you - would love to see a close up of that arrangement.


How cute you are!! That color is perfect for you - how good it is to see your sweet face, Kim, surrounded by your beautiful home.
Take care!
Nan and the doxie girls


Kim, you are a beautiful woman- inside and out! And a bargain hunter as well. My kinda girl.
Lots of love,

Jan in PA

Kim, you are sooo cute! If I were going to go out and pick the perfect inhabitant for Daisy Cottage...I'd pick you!

I think we need to see more of you so you can get used to it!

The top is adorable!

Have fun wherever you are going; we will be awaiting your return. Love that top!


Susan G

You look adorable!!


Kathy  :)

Well just look at your cute self !!! I know you don't like to have your picture taken, who really does ??? We are all too critical of ourselves ~ when we don't think our hair looks good others will say "great hair day"...

You are a doll Kim....looking forward to the "happy things"...

Kathy :)

Remember me? I've been so bad about blog reading lately...not because I don't want to read, but because of my crazy life recently. Lots of company, which has been wonderful and then all the medical tests, "hoopla", etc. You've been a busy, busy girl. I've really enjoyed reading all your posts I've missed and seeing all your gorgeous photos.

Have a wonderful, safe and fun trip.



Oh how cute is that?! You know what you need? A daisy flower in your hair. ;-)

You look beautiful.


~You look so CUTE in your daisy top! Love the picture of you!!! I sent you an email recently about something cute I spotted that reminded me of you. Hope you got it!!~

I just wanted to say thank you again for having such a wonderful Blog. I check most every day and always enjoy what you have for me. A lot of the blogs try to sell things, or tell about homeschooling etc., but yours is the one I count on to give me a good idea, an upbeat moment, a smile and a warm and lovely thought. (and besides, you are a very lovely lady!)


Love that little red bird house, and love your pretty yellow daisy top! How cute!


Happy trip! One is to you happy!
Saludos Ana!


Hi sweet Kim :)

I guess I caught you early with that picture ;) I'll say again that you are beautiful and I love that new top. Great haircut too! I couldn't see it very well in the smaller picture, but I really like it :)

Thank you for the complement ;)

"See" you when you get "back".

Love your blog and find myself cheching frequently, sometimes three times a day, to see if you've posted anything new.As a kindred spirit, I'd like to send you a slideshow of my little home, Sea Spray Cottage, in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. May I have your e.mail address?

Debbie P

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
