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

The dress is beautiful. I want to see pictures with your red sweater and boots. I am sure it will look fabulous. I hope that everything comes back ok with your tests. Have a wonderful thursday!


Be sure to show us a picture of you in the dress all dolled up.



You will look beautiful in that white dress!
Post pics of the shower, if you can. I bet it will be fab!


I just did the gynecologist visit this week too, and just got back from my annual mammogram.
I treated myself to a vanilla cone from sonic and a moment with your blog. :~)


We arrived home from Big Cedar today. After a quick trip to the punkin patch to meet a tiny penguin, we're home and I'm trying to do a little bit of visiting, before we think of something else to do or another trip!

Cute dress, Kim. I remember this style being very popular in the 60's. So this one may well be very vintage.


You've done it again! How do you manage to find just the right thing at the right time the right price! You are one amazing, or either one very lucky lady! I think both! Can't wait to see you in that dress and I think 'red' boots! Happy Halloween!

Brenda Kula

Your photos are always exceptional. Something really speaks to me today of that last one. I just had my husband take an entire SUV full of clothing I cleaned out of the closet yesterday to the Salvation Army. Many were brand new, but I'm tired of seeing dust on clothing someone could put to good use! Love the dress. You have a cute figure, so it will look good on you.

Melissa (Missy)

Don't forget the red purse and that is a pretty dress! I like the hanger.

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

Love the pretty daisy dress! Hope all your tests bring back perfectly well results!


I'm baccck! Have missed your delightful blog. This dress is just perfect, and I think a pair of red boots and a red sweater will be perfection!

That is the cutest dress ever! I love wearing white, so I'd have snatched it up in a second if I had found it in a thrift shop on the west coast!

What a great find! Lucky lucky YOU! I know you'll look adorable in it.



Hi Kim!

As always, you seem to have the sweetests clothes and this one is just too sweet!

Michelle :)

kristin jo

You are so sweet!

kristin jo


What a great find. It will be great with the red accesories.
I turned 50 last year so I went for the big check up. That went well. It's important to tell the Dr. every little thing. The Dr.found two things that needed attention. It's all taken care of now and hopefully I'm ready to go for another 50. Come to think of it, maybe I deserve a new dress.


Dear Kim The dress is perfect. I always shop thrift for my clothes and always get comments! Good ones, I mean. How about a nice flower in your hair? Or a pretty hair slide?
I have all my tests coming up so this post reminds me to treat myself afterwards. xx


What a WONDERFUL dress!!! Do we get to see a picture of you in it one of these days? I would love to see it on!

Hugs from Michigan - Diane

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you 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!

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
