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

thanks for the recipe!


Thanks for the yummy recipe (my thighs do not thank you however!). We have some high school kids staying here for the next few nights for a student council convention--I will have to make these for them! I even have all of the ingredients in the pantry.

sandi @ the whistlestop cafe

Those brownies are awesome.

~~ flo ~~

Looks like very special brownies!
I'd like one please--thanks!!


Oh, yum. I was just telling DH and the kids the other day that we should make smores. Smore brownies are an even better idea!

Karen B

What a great combination, s'mores and brownies. Sounds decadent!

Lady prism

Everything here is just so sinfully pretty! I've been running out inspiration, just totally gone pffft when it comes to my home. Reading back here has energized me. Thank you so much!

Jen @ The Cottage Nest

Oh my chicken and stars. I so have to make those brownies. Thanks for the recipe, Kim. I think phat is the new awesome but why would you want to say that?! Hugs, Jen

Debbie in FloridaDebbie in Florida

I'd love to have a brownie as they look really awesome. But, I think your Boo Pumpkin is totally "Coool"!


Wow, everything looks "awesome"!! Just had to say that. I need to know the new word too. I confess that I sometimes still say, "Cool!"

Marcy Chapman


You're to yummy for words. The brownies are not awesome....another word.....they're
AMAZING! I've started getting in the Halloween mood, too, this cooler weather puts one right in the spirit. Started some decorating yesterday...see yesterday's post.
Hugs, Marcy


This recipe sounds like a keeper! I am going to put it away for the holidays when all my "boys"( now men) are home; they always loved s'mores.


Rachel Going

Well Kim, Everything is darling here of course, and the brownies yummy! But the newest "word" for "awesome" that I've heard circulating among college students of course is "sick nasty"! Can you imagine? I think I'll just stick with "old words" such as awesome, darling and yummy! They just have a much more pleasant ring to my ears!! ((((HUGS DEAR)))))

Sweet Cottage Dreams

Kim, my coffee needs a brownie this morning...any left? Looks like a great recipe that I will have to give a try!
Your porch is just fabulous as is your neighborhood. I bet you all had such a fabulous time together! Awesome is a good word as is RAD, HIP, NARLY, FABTABULOUS, ROCKIN' ...just some "cool" words from California. ha ha.


Linda@lime in the coconut

Perfect sunday afternoon. Love your BOO pumpkin!

Carol Griffin

Oh my gosh, Kim, I am definitely making these for my son's birthday this weekend! Thank you for sharing!


Meadowsweet Days

Kathy  :)

Love that pumpkim Kim and that recipe is going to be a HUGE hit at this Casa....

Have a BOO-tiful day,

They look wonderful, as long as your little baby dog does not get into them. :o) I know you are aware that chocolate is poisonous to dogs.


It's all okay, and I so wish I had been walking past your porch. Um Yum!



The brownies look delicious! Wish I could be sitting on your porch eating those yummy smores, having a glass of sweet tea and waiting to see who's going to be riding that broom. Not you sweetie, that's for sure!

Your pumpkin is really cute. I don't know how you did it but it's adorable.



TOO CUTE! I'm loving that pumpkin and craving those brownies.

Hmmmm. A word for awesome?! I have no idea! Fabulous?


Yum, yum, yum!!! I wish we had walked by yesterday afternoon...they look so good! Maybe I'll try out your recipe later this year!


Yummmmmmm! Can't wait to try this receipe!!


I love the pumpkin carving. Happy Halloween.

Your pumkins are very cute also I especialy like the green one.

Elizabeth Ann that wonderful broomstick waiting for it's owner to come by and ride it off of the porch!! She'd be a good witch, I know, 'cause she's visiting YOUR sweet home.

Oh, and though I like the word awesome, my 14 year old daughter uses "uber" (sounds like goober without the g) in, "that was an uber-delicious brownie"!!

Peace be yours, sweet lady.


"Amazing" is the word my teens use (much better than sick or phat). And your brownies and porch are amazing!

Brenda Kula

Well, I sure wish I could have happened by and gotten some of that delicious-looking dessert! I'm going to have to try that recipe!


those brownies look delicious!


Hi Kim, it always brings a smile to my face to visit your beautiful home. Your photography and use of color are amazing!!!!


Yummy.. your brownies and that punkin' porch too!!!


Oh boy, I think those brownies sound pretty awesome :)



Instead of awesome, how about "Brilliant"? The English and Irish say it all of the time and it just sounds so great.


S'more brownies- my first time hearing of them. They look so good. Thanks for sharing I will have to make some for our halloween party! Daisy~


Yummy, very tempting looking!

The Decorated House

Good Morning!
I can so imagine sitting out on the porch with you today. We must keep this weather a secret. I forget how astoundingly beautiful it can be this time of year. I feel for some black pumpkins this year, too. Love that one with the orange Boo!
Hugs, Donna

The Decorated House

I fell for the pumpkins, not feel.
They don't feel all that warm and soft.
I'll have another brownie please. :)


Kim: My Mr. man was standing over my shoulder as I vewed the brownies...boy did his eyes pop...((((get the recipe he said!)))) so I did!
Thanks for sharing! hugs


Oh YUM!!!

For our brownies we take them out 5 minutes early, then sprinkle crushed Butterfinger candy bars over top, then pop them back in for the last 5.

Holy Mama, those are yummy! haha!


Those look so delicious! Yum.

The more pumpkins the better I think! I bet that party was a real treat...what fun. I love our neighborhood get togethers. Isn't it a blessing to have great neighbors?

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 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!
