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

Dear Kim
I went to the store and read the entire article you wrote, but didn't buy the magazine since I was sure I'd win:( Now I guess I'll have to go back and purchase it! It really showcased your talent for writing. How awesome for you. I hope you get many more opportunities like that!
Hugs, Rhondi

Can I just say that seeing your lovely little cottage makes me want to move to the South so bad?! I just think you have the most beautiful knack for decorating your home.

How sweet and kind you are, you are a special Lady. I am happy to have you for a blog friend. And I loved your article, you did a wonderful job, and you write very well. Congrats.



I won?! Whoo hoo!!! Thank you so much, dear Kim! :) I can't wait to read your article...


I love yellow too. I know this is something that we have in common. But I think you got me beat. I do not have a yellow laptop. That is bright yellow. I love it. Yellow and red complement each other so well. Love the textures and the designs that you use too. Have a wonderful day!

You are the sweetest, Kim!

Congrats to all the winners!



WOW!!! your blog is BEAUTIFUL. Your photos are breath taking. That is truly your gift. How blessed you are. Looking forward to each of your posting. A new blogger. Warmly, Deb

Hi Kim,
I just finished some embroidery tea towels -the towels are yellow and I put some red checkered trim on them. I said to myself, hum, this is so pretty and reminds me of something. It was your lovely home - the yellow and red said "Kim"!
Have a wonderful weekend.

This is only my second time here... I love your blog! The cheery yellow, the amazing flower photos, even your precious doggy, It's just a happy place. And the music? Perfect.

It's a relaxing sunshiny day for me to come here, even if it's 1 AM and I'm up because I can't sleep!

Have a wonderful week.


Your giveaway was fun! Your pictures are so beautiful and the music is soothing. Ahh.

I came across a golden bird in a garden shop today after work. They also had a large black wooden "V"...They're coming to my cottage where I have a gold bedroom with black furniture along with accents of blue and some red. I honestly wouldn't have allowed myself to notice these beautiful items if I hadn't been so inspired by you. Thank you Kim!

although I wouldn't feel comfortable with your colors in my home, I love coming here. I always leave smiling and with newer ideas~

I'm a bit slow to congratulate you, especially since it's about to be July, but I just discovered last night that Daisy Cottage was the June Cottage of the Month. :D Anyway, just to say that I enjoyed seeing all the photos and the one of you and your kiddos, too. Congrats on all of your wonderful achievements of late...I must get out more to find out what's going on!

Elaine L.

More pretty pictures. How wonderful to have such a full life!



Congrats to the lucky winners!! I love the color of your laptop! The curtain on the cabinet in that photo reminds me of the closets my sister and I had in our bedroom when I was young. We didn't have doors on them (it was a really old house, and I think my dad just sorta "made" closets for us)so mom put gathered curtains on them. Sweet memories.


Hi Kim :)

Congratulations to all the winners!

I bought the magazine and the article you wrote was wonderful. The whole magazine itself, was really beautiful and I've already finished reading it :)

I hope you had a lovely weekend. Please give Miss Maggie a kiss from me.

hugs and love,

Susan Duane

Kim, Congrats on the article! I will have to make a special trip to buy the magazine so I can read it! Have a wonderful day!

Thank You Dear Sis!

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
