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

Good morning, Kim! Oops! It's afternoon already, isn't it? I woke up early today, then an hour later, took a nap! I love holiday weekends!

Your new table is adorable. I love it! Oh, do we get to see a room re-do? Yay! I say YES, make that upstairs room into a guest room. We'll just sit back and watch. :)


I love all your color choices for Daisy Cottage. Your home is tastefully decorated with many unique and warm treasures that reflect your welcoming spirit.

Vibrant colors are my favorite but I also tend to choose gentle pastel hues such as pretty Robin's Nest Blue with pale Baby Yellow... just a friendly suggestion from me. Whatever you select will be gorgeous.


Decisions, decisions... Whatever you do, it'll be great, Kim. Your home and blog always serve to inspire.


Thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog.I do love you blog, it is so inspiring. Kisses to Maggie


Kim, your blog is one of my favorites. I love all the red! You'll be pleased to know that I have begun painting the walls in my bedroom. The accent wall is somewhere between shrimp pink and canteloupe. The other walls are going to be cherry red [all from the same paint chip] in a parchment effect. I just finished spackling and am waiting impatiently until I can roll on the base coat. And with the leftover paint, I am going to paint a cheapie dresser. I bought seven different [but harmonious] new knobs for the drawers yesterday. Thank you for inspiring me to be exuberant with color! Have a great weekend.


It is rather grey and yucky today, isnt it? I say blue, but then again, it's my favorite color! We are getting ready to FINALLLY paint our bathroom and I'm going with blue!

OH! I just LOVE that table Kim! It is perfect for Daisy Cottage. Hmmmm I vote for blue in the bedroom redo :-)

I love that little table in the corner and I love those hands on it!

I vote for blue or blue and yellow in your bedroom...I think everyone would have guessed that's what I would choose! It seems like I've been seeing a lot more blue being brought into your sweet cottage lately and I would love to see how your blue room would look because you are so good at putting things together!

I love waking up in my blue and white bedroom! There's something about the morning sun coming in a blue room makes it so soothing!

Vee~A haven for Vee

Your blue table is a very nice addition to that cozy corner. I've got the urge to start on my bedroom soon. It's too girly and cluttered for my new circumstances. I'd love to go with yellow, but I'm thinking a blue-gray. I'll be interested to see what you go with.

I NEED that table!!!
You have inspired me to try to figure out how to build one JUST like it!

A cute find you have there, Kim! I'm sure you'll find the proper place for it. Again and again, redecorating as I likely do! Have a good weekend yourself. May it be a colorful one!

Rose Eliff

I just wanted to stop by to wish you a very happy Labor Day weekend, Kim! Enjoy your new table, take a nap when it moves you, and I pray each day is filled with love!


No extra sleep here. We're babysitting our grandson overnight who has more energy that anyone or anything I have ever seen. You'd think he'd be extra tired, but NOT!

Jean Eakin

I love the blue table and the Hands on it.Any color you would choose would be wonderful with you being so creative and warm. Have a great holiday.

Hhmmm! I'm kinda into that pale robin's egg blue color...well actually I'm into it alot and just gradually adding it here and there. So I don't know if that is "blue" but it might be fun! Have a wonderful holiday weekend. xo rachel


Such a cozy corner. I have a couple of these little tables. They just tuck in anywhere. They are also nice beside the chair. Sweet!


It does make a cozy little corner. We never get tired of rearranging and redoing do we? Maybe a nap first though. Diane

Joy @ Cupids Charm

Hi Kim!!! Don't you just LOVE furniture that can be moved from place to place? Your darling table is sooooo sweet and I am sure that as the years go by it will move and change with you and will be a constant source of creative inspiration! What a sweet find you found! Have a wonderful holiday weekend! :) ~ xoxo Joy


Kim, I love it. Very warm, cozy, and inviting. Have a grand weekend!

Kelly~Rose Vine Cottage

Hi Kim,
Love your cute little table and I vote for blue in the bedroom, but mix it up with all your touches of color like your beautiful quilts. It's to hard to stick to just one color, if your like me you have to many favorite things to decorate with. Whatever you do it will look beautiful!(;


Hi Kim,

I think both colors would turn out lovely :) I am partial to the red though! Enjoy your rainy snoozy weather. Sounds like a good day to snuggle in and play with some decorating ideas.



Kim...That is a sweet table! Its looking very cozy at Daisy Cottage.
I made peach cobbler yesterday with just picked peaches. Come on over.


always a treat to visit your blog


Okay, let's see. What color??? I vote for yellow. Then you can put cute quilts in various colors in there. Yellow can work as a nice neutral.

I have a small bedroom painted pale yellow, and I intend to move an antique jelly cupboard my grandfather made (very primitive and painted white)into it. Over the years, I have wallpapered the back of the cabinet as the mood strikes, and now I'm going to put my quilt collection on its shelves. I also love a collection piled on a bed or hung on the wall over a rod.

What direction does your room face? If it's a western exposure, it could be hot painted red. But red is a color I adore.

I love light so yellow always works for me. It's the golden glow of the sun. :-)



what a great table...I seriously love any table with knobby knees...have even been known to take apart a table that is too far gone just for the knobby knees. LOL!


I meant to say, "Robin's Egg Blue" haha... it didn't look right when I was tying it but I'm sure you knew what I meant :)

Patty in Kansas

Dear Kim....for a bedroom, think of a lovely robin's egg blue, with accents of cheerful yellow...we have a raspberry bedroom in our old (88 yrs.) house, and I'm thinking of changing to a more restful color. Your writing is something I always look forward to reading at the end of every day. God bless....Patty

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
