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

I always love your use of color in your's like opening a new box of crayons...Love it!

Best wishes for a beautiful day!

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Ir always feels so good to visit your blog. From the beautiful music to the rooms that make me want to curl up and stay awhile...I just love it!


It is so hard to capture the true color in pictures isn't it? Your home looks beautiful. There's nothing like a day of just puttering and fluffing. :)


AH! Sooo much better :) I love it!

Well, maybe not as much as my Tiffany blue, but it certainly comes close ;)

Miss you


Are you mak9ng that cute daisy afghan? I seem to remember making those with some sort of plastic thingy when I was a kid. The blue chair is so cute, the things people throw away!

Daisy Cottage

Miss you too Shannon!!!

No Kathy, the only thing I make is a mess! ;-)

Lavender Dreamer

I love your blog so much and especially your photographs that I am linking your site on my blog. Hope that's OK! Thanks!

Linda@lime in the coconut

The colors look wonderful to me...

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

I love the mix of color especially on the bed. Looks very inviting!


Your house is like sunshine :), i look at 3 blogs every morning to see the changes and yours is one of it ! thank you for sharing .. Marissa

Well, I live in a garden home that's practically a dungeon. But quite soon my remodeler is knocking out two walls for two sets of French doors on adjacent walls. Light will come into the dining room, and I can see my gardens!

Hello Kim!

I agree a bed placed underneath a window is a good thing and makes for a cozy sleep, especially in a mild winter when the window is just slightly cracked allowing a gentle cooling breeze to whisper through...wonderful indeed. You and your family have a lovely weekend!




That afghan is adorable! Is that one of your fabulous finds or did you make it? I would love the name of the pattern if you have it. Your home is beautiful


What a beautiful room, it seems fit for a princess. Is this your daughters room? If so she's a very lucky little girl (or maybe not so little) to have a mom who is so talented to be able to make rooms like this.

It looks like something in a magazine. Great job.


Jules from The Roost

Very cozy and charming!


Your blog and photos are always so pretty!

I'm featuring my scarecrow collection if you would like to meet them!



Your house is so bright and cheerful. It always makes you feel good to move and shuffle and make things a little different, though, doesn't it. Pretty post.

I love how cozy your room looks. I would love to know more about the afghan and see more detail to try to figure out how it was done.



i just love, lllove, LOVE your home!


Fun, fun, fun. You always have the best pics, Kim.


Cheerful and charming as always!

Elizabeth Ann

So cozy...I like the idea of a bed under the window. Maybe in my new home.

And, think of it, with that lovely afghan you now have a "flower bed" in the house!!

Peaceful days to you, Kim.


Hi Kim
I love how you've layered the bed. Those are my three favorite colors: red yellow and blue. The yellow looks very similar to the yellow we have in our house.
I am having a giveaway. Stop by if you have a chance.
Hugs, Rhondi

Suzanne Cummings

Wonderful colors and I love that crocheted afghan. Did you make it?



Oh that looks so cozy!!

Great job as always Kim.


Hi sweet Kim :)

I've missed you! I've been so busy with things at home I haven't been able to come see you as much as I want and a day without Daisy Cottage and you is like a day without sunshine.

I'm copying those wonderful recipes and making them soon! How sweet of Erin to bring those to you :)

I love your bedroom, this is your bedroom isn't it? I thought it was green before so maybe not.... hmmm... Oh and how could anyone throw out that sweet chair?! So perfect :)

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Please give Miss Maggie a hug for me.

love you,

Niesz Vintage Home

I Love the cheery, happy colors you use in your home!
And the daisy afgan just makes you smile.

Kimberly :)


Wonderful room! I do love when sun peeks through the windows too! Beautiful! xo Vanessa

Such a sweet bedroom! Isn't it great finding other people's junk that they discard? It's "treasure from heaven!" The chair looks great in that room!
Karla & Karrie


Lovely, lovely bedding! I love all the color. And the blue chair is such a nice find--very cute!


Enjoyed visiting your blog.

I love your little blue chair. I have 5 similar ones. My hubby says I am not allowed to buy anymore chairs for awhile! We are running out of room. I have 2 ugly gold colored ones that need to be painted. Actually I want to paint all of them, I was thinking of different shades. Not sure yet.



I was wondering the same thing, Kim. Do you crochet? My sister does, and I'm always amazed by her incredible handwork. I've got two left thumbs when it comes to needlework of any kind. Well, maybe not needlepoint. ;-)

Great alley find. I was spying today on my neighbor's trash... she has a wooden box out there that's begging to become something clever!

Happy Sunday,



Oops! Kim, I didn't see this page of comments. When I said that thing about crochet, I was referring to the question the poster said at the bottom of the first page. Didn't want you to think I was loopy. ;-0


Alison Gibbs

Love the colours.
I have been away from Blogland and am enjoying catching up on your posts


The red vintage purse is fabulous! It has your name all over it and was surely meant to be in your hands.

Sweet finds for the bedroom, too. Personally, I think the photos are wonderful....


LOVE the dresser! There is one painted white in one of my books and I drool over it every time I see it. Love, love, love those handles. (and I like yours better than the painted one)


Hi Kim!

I just adore this post so much, it feels so cozy and inviting too! I love that picture of all the quilts with mixed colors, its right up my alley! and that sweet special one of the eyelet pillow case? omg, That is such a simple but hugely sweet picture! Your blog always makes me so happy! Thanks for always sharing such beauty!

~ hugs ~ Cynthia


i love the floral accents on the bedding!


that flower afghan is sooo adorable! what a cozy room you have there!

:) Diana

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
