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

Hi Kim...ummmm, can I borrow your sister...please???! Those pillows are absolutely're very lucky to have her to sew for you!!!

Take care and hugz,


Awww, Kim! Those pillows are just precious. That Jill is a wonderful sewer. You ARE lucky to have her. That's a priceless thing to know. I wish I could sew more than a straight seam.



Sweet things for a sweet person. Love the pillows! Your sister is a talented girl.


Love the pillows. Unfortunatly I am the sister that sews. My sis is Constantly asking me to make her something. I don't mind though. That's what sisters are for!


Oh, so cute! While I do not have a sister who sews, I do have my "stepwife". Actually she is my hubby's ex, my darling stepdaughter's mom and she is wonderful! I saw a wonderful door panel and showed her the picture. Guess what? She's making one just like it for me :0). I know people think it odd that an ex wife and current wife can get along so well, but thankfully we do.


You r so lucky to have a sewing sister. i love all the pillows. you live in such a happy house. I love it. mishelle


Beautiful pillows, Kim! I love them all. You are very lucky to have such a talented sister.


You are spoiled but only in the very best way. You can't have too much love. And speaking of love, you've got a wonderful sister. She did such a nice job on the pillows. Hugs, Barbara


Now I want to go to the thrift shop...very pretty, very, very pretty!

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Why you spoiled rotten girl you! Just kidding, Kim. You deserve it all. And I'm not surprised to learn that your sister is just as talented, sweet, and generous as you.


If the person who sold the rose covered napkins could see that wonderful pillow -- well they'd be sorry now. More terrific inspiration on what to do with this great vintage fabric all around us. Recycle, reuse and re-love.Thanks.

Carolyn at Cranberry Crossings

Those pillows are soooooo cute! What a wonderful sister you have!


You're very welcome for the soap and dish! And I have some sewing I should tackle...

Pam Kern

Lucky you!

I have been collecting linens to make into pillows, but still haven't gotten around to it.

Oh, if I only had your sister.



Beautiful beautiful pillows!! I am so much in love with vintage Linens, I have drawers made specially for them :)
You take such beautiful pictures!



Your pillows are adorable, charming vintage patterns and awesome colors, a splendid gift from a very talented sister who must love you very much.

I'm a Goodwill shopper too. Love it!

I've said this before and I mean it, your photos are breathtaking!!

Daisy Cottage

Thank you everyone!
I'm having dinner with Jill in a little bit and I'll pass on your sweet words to her!


What a great way to put napkins to good use. These turned out beautifully. the red toile is my favorite because I love all things toile.

Hope all is well. Have a great day!

Love the pillows, and one of the + is that it was such a good bargain. It is so much fun finding all those little treasures.And what a wonderful sister you have to take the time to make things for you. Many Blessing, Virginia


Hi Kim,
I want a sister who makes me adorable pillows like that. I only have a brother and doubtful he's gonna sew....LOL. Please stop by, you haven't visited in a long time.


The pillows are fantastic and even better because they were made by your sweet, talented sister. Napkins do make wonderful pillows. I sewed alot years and years ago. All of your beautiful handmade things almost ( I say almost ) makes me want to get out that sewing machine that hasn't sewn a lick in 20 years. Of course I tell myself that it probably wouldn't even work now, so I'll just buy some someone else made. have a wonderful evening, and thanks for the sweet email.

Lucky lucky you !!! I wish I had a Jill. The pillows are great !!!

Oh Kim,

How wonderful to have a sissy that can sew!!! I sure wish I knew how to turn things in to treasures like that! I would sew and sew and sew if I could! Your pillows are so cute!


Rachel Going

A sis as sweet as you...of course, I would sew for you too! I know she loves creating beauty from your finds. xorachel


What a great sister! I love them all, but my favorite is the last one. I love the color combination.


Morning Kim! Oh, what a nice sister you have! She makes beautiful pillows and in you special colors!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)


Jillsy did a great job. My sister is as sewing phobic as I am! We LOVE glue guns.....
The pillows are perfect!


Yet another reason to wish that my parents had had the foresight to provide me with a sister! LOL the pillows are to-die-for, Kim. So beautiful!


Hi Kim
I love to sew and know the joy of being able to have one of a kind original items for my home. I love all the pillows your sister created for you. You can never have too many pillows!
Have a happy day.
Hugs, Rhondi


What a sweet sister you have, Kim! She did beautiful work. I wish I could get the courage up to try that sewing machine of mine again. Maybe one day ;)

How sweet of Sherrie to send you the darling plate and soap!

You are indeed a very lucky and sweet lady :)



Oh how wonderfully blessed you are. First, with a good eye for spotting these kinds of things. Second, having such a wonderfull sister who can sew and bless you with such lovely things. How blessed you are.
Love & Prayers,


So, I spent most of today loading vacation photos onto Flickr, then posted a few ones of bikes on my blog. I fell in love with the color scheme they created. When I was done, I came to your blog (after a long time away). It is your color scheme!!!! LOL

I agree! I want a sister who can see some pretty pillows for me too? This sister of yours....does she need another?
Oh...loved that soap that Sherri sent to you!! How sweet of both of these ladies!

Brenda Kula

Your vividly beautiful and colorful photos always make my day, Kim!

Sheri Ingrande

Your blog is always so bright and cheery...I love your bold use of always make it work so well.
I wish I could sew. I can use a glue gun like a pro though, LOL
Sheri & Sophee-a

That bar that Sherrie sent you looks fabulous too!

Sara Duckett

You are lucky! Those are sooo cute! I wish I had a sister who would sew for me! :)

The Decorated Housed

That's it!! I'm adopting Jill.
I think she makes slipcovers, too.....
oh my. I better find out what her favorite food and desserts are.

Love them, they are so pretty.


You are very blessed indeed. I love each pillow. That soap looks so good I almost want to put a fork in it for a taste. Probably not a good idea I guess.


Love those pillows...and your blog is so cool! I'm definately bookmarking it :)


Oh Kim it looks like you had a fun day! I will be looking forward to picking up that magazine. Im sure Miss Maggie is glad its all over. I think she has earned some lap time.

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!

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!

  • "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!

  • "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
