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! I love your rooster...adorable. I glad I am not the only fuzzy person in the morning. Cinnamon toast and coffee are my morning perk me up.

Your son is one very handsome man!

*I love how you write things on chalkboards..such a nice touch!

Hi there Kim!
Good morning! =)
Loved your rooster! And the cheerios.... mmmm, made mea bit hungry. I Think I'll have some cereal too!

kisses from Rio,


All so cute! How nice of your son to wear a shirt that matches the house. :)


Good morning Kim! I love your rooster...too cute! And you son...he's a cutie too!!!

Maybe I should stop eating bagels in the morning and opt for something more healthy like cheerios!!!

Have a great day!


Love your photos! Did you have your son dress to match your house?

Kim,Coffee is a must first thing in the morning. There is nothing like a good cup of coffee while you're looking at a magazine to start your day out right.
Moms are a little partial, but your son is a cutie. You have a great day. I am on to brave the messy basement to bring out some more Fall "stuff"

Mornin' Missy! HOpe you have a good day writing. And yep, that Shawn is a cutie-patootie, just like his parents.



Good Morning Kim. Glad your fuzziness has gone away and left you bright eyed and bushy tailed for a day of writing. That coffee is wonderful stuff! What a cute son, almost as cute as my sons, lol.



Guilty as charged, experiencing a fuzzy day too!


Good Morning Kim,

My eyes are the same way without my coffee :) Your son is such a cutie pie!



Hi, Kim, Are you awake now? Cute post. Nice looking son. Does he live near so you can see him occasionally?

Nola of Alamo North

How come your Cheerios are so much cuter than mine? I never even thought how lovely you could make them by adding the right accents! What an eye opener.

Sweet Cottage Dreams

Good morning to Kim AND Shawn!! Have a lovely day writing!!!

xoxo Becky


The son...a definite cutie. Maybe a nice game of "The Bachelor" is called for. ;)


Hi Kim, I am seriously getting worried about the whole Cheerio thing. I hate the smell of them and EVERY child eats them. I am destined to have wet Cheerios all over my house!!!! I have heard that the generic brands are "milder".


Hi Kim, here… good night! ;)

What you're ingenious creating the scenes for photographs! I love!

Saludos, Ana!


Hi, Kim. I am writing from Brazil just to say that I love your blog. Everytime I visit it, I feel comfortable. Maybe it is because the things you show, your lovely house, your dog, your decoration's objects and so on. I feel that you warm my heart.
Best wishes


Hi sweet Kim :)

I have been through a lot of stuff this last week and coming here to get away from it was and always is a real blessing. My cable internet finally came back and the first thing I did was visit you. Thank you for always making my day brighter and happier :)

If no one else has promised you a copy of GWTW, I would love to send it to you.

Oh and of course your son is handsome, just look in the mirror! :)

Is there anything better than having your son around the house? Only when they bring grandsons.



Coffee, can't get through the morning without it!!! I love flavored coffee in the morning during the winter.

Brenda Kula

Well, he gets his looks from his mother. He does resemble you a lot, Kim. And he's a handsome boy!

Alauar Parrish

Good Evening Kim. I so love your blog, it brightens my day. Your home page is so cheery, and sunny. No matter what the day looks like out side, on your blog it is fresh and sunny.. Love you photos too so pretty.
Love the chicken she looks so shy in the photo. lol
Hope you had a great day. Oh and I tagged you so stop by..


Kim, your son is very handsome!

I love cheerios too, I have them every morning!



Yup, your son is a cutie!! My sister is single.......hehehehe


Hi Kim,

Shawn is adorable, I think he looks like your hubby have you heard that before ?? You have such a nice family !!

Well nightie night,
Kathy :)


Love the pictures.


Every time I check out your blog, I feel as if I have traveled somewhere special and had a calm and peaceful (and when it comes the doggie, I should add "precious") experience. Thanks for that.



Cute son! I have a twenty year old>)


Good Morning, Daisy Cottage!

What a happy, sunny way to start the day, and that Shawn is cute as can be. Just like his mother. :-)

The sun is shining here. And looking through my sunroom window, I notice that the softer light of fall is starting to peek through the Heavens. We're starting to see those subtle signs (the ones we see here in Florida) easing their way into nature. It's so welcome.

Have a great day, Kim, and enjoy those Cheerios and your coffee. Oh, and enjoy cute Shawn and cute Mr. Rooster, too! ;-)



Layla Palmer

(and I liked the pictures of your cottage too)


The Lettered Cottage


You make that bowl of cheerios look oh so good :-)

And what a handsome young man to greet you in the morning!

((hugs)) Rosie


Good Morning to you too Kim! I had Frosted Mini Wheats this morning, after my "fuzziness" went away!

The simple things in life are so divine!

Ciao amica,

What a darling post!!! My Cheerios never looked so cute in a bowl as yours do!!! ~ xoxo ~ Joy


Morning Kim, It is a beautiful morning here a little chilly but bright and sunny. Your breakfast looks delicious, I had Crunchy Nut Cornflakes this morning. Cute son Jane x

The Decorated House

Good Morning Sweet Kim!
I am really bugged at myself that I didn't leave a comment about your so sweet and handsome son. It's just that when you get to be the age where you are old enough to be parents of these young cuties, it's just too good to pass up telling them how cute they are!
He is one special guy. You can tell by the kindness in his face and eyes, especially when he's with his family and doggies.

There are more jobs over here. Has he thought of moving? Heeeee
Politics don't matter,
just "must love dogs, moms & grandma's."
And of course he's perfect there.
Hugs! Donna

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you Fifi!

  • "It's people like yourself that make everything beautiful and worthwhile." ~ 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
