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

Fabulous frame! I just love it and it's perfect for you Kim. Enjoy.

cindy~my romantic home

Wow, I think that is so cool that people recognize you from your blog! You're famous!


Funny, I remember seeing that painting when you showed the shop pics, and I thought surely it needed to come to Daisy Cottage. Bravo it happened! I don't have a cobbler recipe to share, but those peaches sure make me want some to eat!


I love your new profile pic Kim!

Re peach cobbler, I actually make peach pie vs. cobbler. But, more like a cobbler I sometimes make a recipe that is so easy I'm embarrassed to share. You won't believe the compliments I get when I make this. Simply fill a 9x13 dish with your sliced peaches. I like to sprinkle a tad of cinnamon over the peaches. Then take a dry yellow cake mix and sprinkle over the peaches. I usually will add some chopped pecans over the dry cake mix. Then you melt a stick of margarine or butter and pour that over the top of everything - bake @ 350 till bubbly and lightly browned. So yummy and easy!



I made this recipe this summer and it was wonderful! Love that Paula Dean!


Yep, I love the new (to me anyway) pic! I've made that recipe and it really is yummy and sooo easy. Love the frame!



Hi Kim,
I wish I did have a peach cobbler recipe, however I usually make pies instead. I love your mirror you got today and your painting. It was meant for you.


Jean Eakin

Kim, I love peaches too especially in a bowl of cereal. Your new mirror and floral print are great, and I know you will enjoy them . Have a great evening.

Hi, Kim!

I don't have a recipe to share, but now I feel the need to make a peach cobbler too!

I think I love that store, Vintage. It looks fascinating! Can't wait to see where you put the mirror.

And how could you not love the flower painting...

Take care and give Maggie a hug from everyone here at my house in Pa.

Have a great evening.

Brenda Kula

All so perfect for Daisy Cottage. Especially the painting.

Rita May

I noticed that your new mirror frame and painting match. You had good luck shopping!


Lady Dorothy

Oh, the mirror and the painting are perfect for your house!

And I'd love a fresh ripe peach right now! You made my mouth water!

Toni from NC

The mirror is BEAUTIFUL! I love to decorate with mirrors. Congrats on a wonderful find for your home.


Looks like Tina has the same recipe that I have. You should definitely try it! I love the painting and the frame. You always seem to find the pieces that suit your style.


Love your painting. It reminds me of the pictures that my great-aunt use to paint. She moved to Florida during her golden years. Does the painting have the name of the painter on it?

Jenni- nest to keep

Hi Kim~
I love all the colors of your aprons! There is nothing more fun than baking with a cute apron on! :)

The painting and mirror look like they will fit in your house just fine! :)

I hope you have a great evening!

Sorry, no recipe suggestions, but I will volunteer to be a taste tester! Loved the aprons; I always see something adorable here at Daisy Cottage that makes me go "awwwwww".


I love coming to Daisy cottage; a warm welcoming place. Thank you Kim. I love the peach cobbler recipe shared above. I will try it soon. In the winter when there are no fresh peaches I used canned ones to make the following. Always a winner.

Peach Pinwheel
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons soft butter

3 cups sliced peaches (fresh or canned)
3 tablespoons quick tapioca
1 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons soft butter

Paste: Mix ingredients together.

Filling: Place peaches in greased baking dish (dish with lid works best). Mix tapioca, sugar and water together and pour over peaches.

Biscuits: Combine Bisquick and sugar; add milk and butter. Stir until a soft dough is formed. Turn onto lightly floured (with Bisquick) board and knead about 10 times. (Add Bisquick until dough is rollable.) Roll into an oblong shape; spread with soft butter and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Roll like a jellyroll. Cut into pieces and place on peaches. Bake at 425 degrees F for 25 minutes (or a little longer). Biscuits should be browned lightly.

Serve with milk, whipped cream or plain. Keep refrigerated.

Love the painting, and it is a happy looking one too. Great find.

Have a great week.



Love that mirror and the picture is perfect for Daisy Cottage! Wow, you're famous now but just wait until that magazine hits the stands!


Hi Kim
The mirror and frame are lovely treasures. They'll look just perfect in your home.
Hugs, Rhondi


Love your orange chippy flower frame - can't wait to see where it ends up.

Do you know your music always makes me a little teary-eyed??



Hi Kim :)

Both the mirror and the painting are happy, especially now that they're in Daisy Cottage ;)

My peach cobbler recipe comes from a good friend of the family. When I was little I used to beg her to make it :)

Paulette's Peach Cobbler:

10 fresh peaches peeled and sliced (or 3 cans drained)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 stick butter

Place peaches in 9 x 13 inch sprayed pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar. Mix flour, 1/2 cup sugar and butter. Put over peaches. Bake 30 minutes at 400 degrees.

I hope you love it as much as our family does.

Thank you so much for knowing and understanding me. It's harder then I'm letting on, but my house is out there somewhere. I just need it to find me ;)



This is a cobbler recipe I made about a week ago. It had rave reviews...
(Go to my family blog to see it as I put it together, if you wish:


Cobbler Recipe

Preheat Oven to 350 F.
Spray a 9x13 glass baking dish with cooking spray (or melt 1/2 cup butter in dish) - Spray works great!
* 6 to 7 cups fruit (peaches, berries, whatever you desire)
* Sprinkle about one Tablespoon of cornstarch over fruit, mix and set aside (I had none, so sprinkled sugar instead)

Batter Recipe

In a large bowl, combine:
* 2 cups sugar
* 2 cups self-rising flour
* Dash of Nutmeg
* Add to the mixture two cups milk containing a teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix together.
(The batter will be slightly lumpy.)
Pour batter into prepared baking dish, then top with the fruit.

Bake one hour or until crust is golden. (Took 1 hr. 15 min. for mine)
I chose to make peach cobbler with blueberries. (I had some blueberries that were too tart to eat.) It was very pretty to look at and was very YUMMY as well!

Betty in Oklahoma


Mmmm...peaches. I make peach salsa. It's delicious and easy to make. Email me if you want the recipe.

Hugs for you and Maggie,


At brunch this weekend, my friend had grilled peaches over french toast and said it was amazing.... :)

Those aprons are so cute! The frame on the mirror is gorgeous! Those types of frames are hard to find! Oh, and the painting is fabulous!!! Great finds for your amazingly beautiful cottage :)

I am lazy in the summer, so I just make little turnovers with Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. Roll out a square of pastry, slice a peach on top, add a sprinkle of fresh nutmeg, some sugar to taste and fold it up and bake it for 20 minutes until puffed and golden and top with vanilla ice cream. Done ( and gone) in no time flat!



I love that mirror! Great find as always.

I've been obsessed with peach tea lately. YUM!

Kim, I see someone has already given you the recipe with the yellow cake mix. Oh my family goes crazy when I make this. It is so yummy! And I do LOVE peaches!! xo rachel


Hi Kim, I wish I did have a recipe to share, but not at the moment! I'm at work, lol. I just wanted to say how much I LOVE your blog...I check it everyday.

My friend and I went to Vintage a couple of Saturdays ago and met Angie! After drowling over all the wonderful merchandise, I chatted with Angie, for what seemed an eternity! Wonderful gal, she is!! We discussed You and Daisy Cottage as well....

After leaving Vintage, we took a drive around Lake Morton, looking over all the sweet cottages and architecture. Low and behold I think I made my friend deaf---I spotted the One and Only Daisy Cottage, I squealed with delight...It is even prettier in person, Kim!!!


We make a simple but delicious peach cobbler.
Although we've never made it with fresh peaches. We take 1 large can and 1 small can of sliced peaches, with the juice, pour into a 9x13 pan. Sprinkle a yellow cake mix on top of that and pour 1 stick of melted butter on top of the cake mixture evenly. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until brown. It is delicious with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.

Gretchen Gerg

I'm at work right now Kim but I'll e-mail you a terrific recipe for Peach Cobbler tonight.


Amanda Roberts

I LOVE the new things you bought for Daisy Cottage! Your home is such a HAPPY place. Also, LOVE the new picture of you!!! ~Mandy


LOVE the new mirror. The frame is gorgeous! I hope you'll show us more of it.



Those peaches look luscious, and your photo is grand. I like the painting too, and it goes so well against your yellow walls. I found you through Brenda's blog, and I'm glad I did.~~Dee


SO happy!! I love vintage paintings of all kinds, but I tend to buy more landscapes. I have a couple of flower paintings on old ceiling tin's that I cherish, though.

mmmm. peach anything sounds dreamy...

The Decorated House

Hi Kim~
The painting looks perfect and that mirror is so much fun with the chipping and other paints left on it.
Hope your kiddo is doing great on her new adventure.


This is by far the best peach cobbler I've ever made or had. I've made it a ton this summer. It tends to be really sweet, so if your peaches are sweet, you may want to adjust the sugar a bit. Oooo... It's so good all warm and gooey with a bit of cold milk poured over the top. Mmmm...


The Almond extract makes this recipe!

Peach Cobbler a la Virginia Hospitality

3 cups fresh peaches, sliced

1 tbsp. lemon juice

1/2 tsp almond extract(the reason it's so good!!)

1 cup flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg, beaten

1 stick of butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter 10 X 6 baking dish. Place peaches on bottom. Sprinkle with lemon juice and extract. Mix dry ingredients. Add egg and mix with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over peaches. Drizzle with melted butter. Bake 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Top with ice cream or fresh whipped cream.



oh the new painting looks perfect for that spot. the peaches look absolutely scrumptious.
have fun making cobbler.


Wonderful photographs. I love that mirror, and peaches are wonderful, especially this time of year. Karen

Elaine L.

I don't have a recipe, but my friend makes one that is the best I've ever tasted and she uses canned peaches. One thing that I think makes a difference is the Vanilla.

I love that mirror and can't wait for you to post a pic of where you hang it.




I always love what you are doing here. Looks like a great vintage day!

Daisy Cottage

I have recently posted THE MOST AMAZING recipe for peach cobbler. I hope you make it. Enjoy!

christy in georgia

It IS a happy smiley painting. love it!


I love me some fresh peaches, too. Nothing better! Won't throw in a recipe since it looks like you've got some yummy ones here already, but I will tell you this:

If you want some yummy-smelling cobbler in the air but not on the hips, Gold Canyon has a candle called "Cobbler on the Porch".

Oh, sweet mercy. You'll want to lick it.

ashley the floral painter

My husband just brought home what are probably the last peaches from the farmers market for the year. I was thinking peaches and cream, but the salsa idea is a good one!!

Great flower art BTW, and great site.


flower painter ashley

The flower chair picture is my favorite. Nice variations in light and color. The peach them is delicious....

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.

Thank You Grace!

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.

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.

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

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.

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
