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

Sweet Cottage Dreams

KIM!!!! How cute! How so sweet and generous of Pearl to share such gorgeous accessories with Maggie ~ who, by-the-way, us just as radiant as can be!! Ooo la la! Doogie is in love!!!

Have a lovely day!! Give Maggie a big hug and kiss from Spen, Duhgall and myself.

love ya!!


Oh, lucky Miss Maggie to have a BFF like Pearl! I love all her little trinkets & of course, they look lovely on her highness. LOL

Oh and Kim, love the new pic of you up top! You look beautiful.

Hope the rain has stopped for you finally. We got 1 1/2 days of ole' Fay blowing through B'ham too. We needed the rain though.


This just gave me goosebumps! Friendships like this are magical and not many people, excuse me - doggies have such generous caring friends.

Maggie my dear, you look just elegant in the pearls! You must be a very special doggy to attract wonderful friends like Pearl!


Hugs to Kim and Maggie!
Deborah in NC


Aww, Maggie is a Pearl-girl! Wouldn't it be nice if someday she could meet her Doxie friend?
Kim, I'm glad to see you posting today. Hope you're having a good day!
Bye for now!

I sure wish I could teach my Yorkie hounds to keep a little pretty bling on! Impossible! I can't get a mile down the street from the groomer's before they have their cute kerchiefs ripped off.


Hi Kim :)

Miss Maggie just melts my heart with that sweet face of hers. That scarf is precious, but I love the pearls for her more.... dressy occasions ;)

Have a beautiful Sunday and please give her a big hug for me :)



Marvelous Maggie looks perfectly precious in her pearls:>)

Becky from Tennessee

Oh Miss Maggie! How beautiful and elegant you look with your pearls! I know you must feel so special having such a wonderful and generous friend in Pearl. Like the adorable scarf, too. Of course, YOU make everything look good!! Lots of hugs...Becky


This is just adorable...I HAVE to find a pearl necklace for my baby girlies now!...


What a cute post. What a cute dog! Glad you are back and from the smiles that that cute post must have given you, feeling a little better than last post.


I am smitten with the wonderful Maggie!! What a precious sweet. I can't wait to see the photos from the shoot.

Take Care,

Andrea @ Big Creek Cottage

Adorable, simply adorable.

sandi @ the whistlestop cafe

Oh, Fancy is so jealous!
Now she will be begging for her own pearls... in addition to cookies.

Jean Eakin

Maybe, just maybe they will get to MEET some day...:) Hope this brings good cheer to you and fills a little of the emptiness that your daughter left behind.

Your Maggie is so cute & Pearl is adorable. I love the party Dianne had for Pearl! Very cute!

Love Maggie's new "stuff" and what a nice friend. Your new picture is just precious.


Hi Kim,
Maggie is stunning in her pearls. I think she might be calendar material. Are you able to leave comments on my blog now? I changed it so I think you should be able. Miss hearing from you.


An Enchanted Cottage

Oh my gosh, that is the sweetest post ever. Maggie looks precious in her pearls! Thanks for the smiles :)...Donna

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Oh! Maggie is just so sweet in her scarfs and collar. She's a sweet little girl to cuddle while you're missing your big girl. My "baby" starts 11th grade tomorrow. Two more years of high school. time goes so fast. I can't imagine not having him home.

Miz Maggie is a spoiled little girl...isn't that the way they're suppose to be? Too cute!

Rachel Going

That is beyond sweet! xorachel

Kim...Maggie looks absolutely adorable in her new gifts. She is one lucky lady to have a friend like Pearl!!!

Love your new pic too!


Susan G

Everyone should have a BFF! Lucky Maggie! I can't give ny doggie beasts pretty things like that - they'd just eat everything (including the pearls!). :)

Could this get any cuter??? Maggie is lucky to have a BFF. What a smile for a dreary Monday morning. You have a gift for portraying life in such a pleasant, joyful manner that surely reflects an equally lovely soul. Ginger


Oh what an ADORABLE post! Maggie looks so cute in her pearls and her new scarf and bows!

I just love her!



Maggie looks just wonderful in pearls! She's such as elegant little lady. Very cute post. Diane


Miss Maggie looks so cute and very elegant, it is lovely to have blog friends. Jane x


I can see why you could not wait to share. Maggie looks like a little princess with her new jewels and her adorable new wardrobe. Girls know that pearls go with everything. Absolutely precious. I have to hope over and visit Pearl now!


Only a doxie lover could appreciate this. I love it . Make me want to go get my Sissy some pearls. She is a brindle smooth and so sweet. Love your blog.


Maggie looks adorable, she's such an obliging model.
Hey, don't you have a new photo posted? I'm used to seeing you as a blonde! You look equally pretty either way.


OH how precious!!! My kitty used to wear a pearl necklace.

SO cute!


Love....Love.... your blog!!!! I go to it all the time. Maggie has the most expressive eyes....of any dog I think I've ever seen. She is just so... adorable....and this is coming from a cat person.

ack! That is tooo cute! I notice the scarf is made with Heather Bailey Freshcut fabric. I am making a quilt with that line right now! Her pearls look lovely! I should make my puppy boy Remy a few new scarves too...

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

Well, Maggie looks adorable in her new scarf! I have been fortunate that I have met Pearl and her mom in person. In fact I am proud to call both my friends! Happy week Kim and Maggie!


Kim, this is so precious, and that last photo of Maggie looks like a greeting card. How cute is that necklace, and that scarf with bow...project runway lookout. Karen

Maggie is so lucky to have Pearl as her BFF! I love her pearls and she looks lovely in them and her scarf is so pretty! She is a sweet little gal!


Maggie is so precious and she looks so stylish in all of her new bows. Give her a hug from us.


Oh my, that pearl necklace is so sweet!!!! And Maggie looks like a princess with it on. Too cute!


Hello Kim,
how adorable! lucky Miss Maggie.
Well, I have a little something for you over at my blog..because you never fail to inspire us...I'd like to give you a very nice blogging award. I hope that you will stop by my blog and accept. hugs, Tina

Ohmy gosh! That is the cutest thing I think I have every seen! Oh Maggie you are lovely!

Come by and see the last installment of my mystery trip!


Too cute and sassy! cherry


I have to say that this is the sweetest package ever, completely adorable. I don't even have a dog, or cat, or even a pet goldfish, but I totally love this post of yours with all the Maggie/Pearl goodies. What a lovely gift.


What a sweet post! And Maggie is a beautiful pooch!

I had a miniature, long-hair doxie when I was a little girl. His name was Hobo...short for Heinrich, of course. He lived to be 19 years old and was just the best dog.

I've been lurking on your blog for a while and figured it was time to say hello. I just adore your blog and love spending time here. Thanks!

Mary / Mariah

Love your sweet Maggie , so cute . Please stop in to pick up your Aword . I love your blog . Mary


Maggie looks adorable in new gifts!


I burst out laughing when I scrolled down to witness Miss Maggie in her finery. I love Miss Maggie!


Oh,,my gosh. That dog is sooo cute. I love all her accesories. I have a male golden retriever and I put bows (manly) on him sometimes and my husband always threatens to take them off. I say I didn't have any girls (Ihave 3 boys) that I have to do something. I think the pearls would be going a little too far. that looks so funny on a dog. Also, your porch looks like it's beautiful. Your blog is beautiful.



That Maggie is the cutest dog ever! Just look how she poses! And she looks precious all dressed up in her pretties. Thanks for sharing. Love these pics of her...



Oh my goodness! Maggie is the cutest little thing. How do you ever get anything done with such a sweet little dog around? I would want to hug her all day long. Such an adorable little face!! Love your posts!


I just want to kiss her little face.

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!

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

  • "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

  • "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!

Thank you Karen!

Thank You Betty Jo!
