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

Freddie Girl

Hey Kim, sorry it has been brain is in puppyland. Had Oliver for a little over a week and I am TOTALLY in love with him. He's a bit chewy, but very smart and willing to learn, not to mention ADORABLE like Maggie. Will send pictures. Love the outfit, especially the white shirt with the cool sleeves. You look so cute! Oh, and Maggie and Oliver would make great friends, the personalities are very similar. Vicky


I just love your outfit! You must share their brands. What kind of thrift shop? I don't find that cute of things at mine.

Brenda Kula

Girl, how do you stay so damned skinny is what I want to know!

The Decorated House

Hello Sweet Kim!
I was on my over to see you and was happy you had stopped by while I was writing.
(Pssst... is this the best fall weather ever? Yes!!! I love these crisp mornings. But I don't have to get up early and go out in them I do confess.) is cuter, Kim or Maggie???
I cannot decided. You both are! My mom had a purse like that. I remember thinking it was so special when I was a kid.
Hugs! Donna

Kris Grover

Good Shoppa!!

yay! win/win for me!


you are so darling!!!


sweet maggie, is so adorable..
lovely outfit..

cindy~my romantic home

You're just as good at putting outfits together as you are at decorating! Too cute!


Hi Kim,

That is an adorable outfit and so are you!! You asked me about Miss Gigi's medicines -- she's taking 100mg of Simplicef once daily and 5mgs of Prednisone every other day. It's actually working too, Yay!!!


Margaret Cloud

Your outfit looks great, I buy from the thrift shop also, it is amazing what you can find. I like that dog, he is so cute. I invite you to come by.

Susan Ramey Cleveland

Look at you, Kim!!! That outfit is darling. And it does go perfectly with the pocketbook. Now be a good doggie mommy and play with Maggie.

Fran break me up. Yes thrifting is the best and I love it too.

Cute dog.



Hi Kim,
Love Maggie...great personality. I always threaten to tell my guy that he is a D O G. I think Maggie falls into that "category". Love the white sweater. Just wanted you to know I made the Smores Brownies for my family yesterday. They are almost gone. Thanks for sharing.....


Such a cute outfit, I can't believe it's thrifted. but then again, you have such a flair for design. Karen

Julia @ Hooked on Houses

Why don't I ever find anything that cute at my thrift shops? It all looks great together! But Maggie steals the show, as usual. :-)


Great outfit! Maggie just keeps getting cuter!


The plaid top looks so cute with jeans! Wat a deal:>)

Andrea at Opulent Cottage

It's so cheery! You've inspired me to go thrifting RIGHT NOW! I try to wear red every day in December, and I need to start stocking up now!
xoxo, Andrea

kelly henderson

Well, you can put a thrift store outfit together just as beautifully as a thrift store house!! Your a doll.


Great shopping .Love the picture of Maggie.


Hi Kim
Been in Tennessee for past 3 weeks and not able to access your blog. Happy to be home...the first thing I did was review what I had missed at Daisy Cottage.
Thanks so much for the cookie receipe. Love your outfit! And of course, sweet Maggie is just as precious as ever.


Love the puppy commentary!

Coralie Cederna Johnson

Sweet wonderful sheltie! I have three and they do have plenty to say! I heard on the news last evening that dogs can read your facial expressions...well, the newscaster thought that was news. I could have told them that along time ago!


I love thrifted clothing to pieces. When I worked, a hundred years ago, all the ladies in my office wanted to know WHERE DO YOU FIND SO MANY CUTE CLOTHES? They never believed me when I told them about the consignmnent shops I went to almost every day...tee hee....
And, i adore your Daisy Dress...(Gosh, I nearly said 'your Daisy Duke Dress".....;O)
love, bj


You are so cute Kim! I love that outfit and it's perfect for that darling purse :)

Hug that cute baby for me for being such a little love!

Love to you,

Sweet Cottage Dreams

You both are just too cute!!! Love your style, Kim!!!

Hugs to little Maggie from Duhgall.



Hi Kim,

You are amazing and a role model for showing us that not only can we look fabulous, but have a fabulous home by shopping at our local "thriftiques". Darling outfit -- red boots and red purse -- very cute and trendy.
XO Erin and Bentley


You are adorable! And you too Maggie.



What an adorable outfit, Kim! You look straight out of the pages of Lucky magazine. The red and white is so great on you, and your layering is perfection. :-)


G R E A T outfit! What finds! And loves to the puppy!

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!

  • "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
