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

That is soooo random! Isn't that cute how they use that word! :) Remember the words...sike...dude....He's fine(meaning he is hot)....gag totally...whatever...and for someone who is gross...he's a dirty...:) Oh, the good ole days are so much fun!

Hannah Shaw

Diane Duda

Love the pictures and your bright colors. Had to LAUGH at the random dog in bed as we have a fat bassett hound doing the same at the moment.

Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

I love random!!


Very funny post. Thanks for the chuckle this morning. Give that random dog a kiss for me.


I knew the random dog had to follow the random unmade bed! Where else would she be?

Susie Homemaker

I wish you the very best of random days!

I love your random eye for beauty!


Love the picture of the doggie!!


I love the randomness of your post with all the lovely pictures.


Anita Ehmsen

I love it all- especially all the red and yellow. Very cheery- as snowflakes dance outside my wind.

Thanks for the sunshine.



Like totally random! Thanks for my groovy uplift for the day!

Susan S.

Totally random and loving all the pictures. I love the way you are so playful. My neice uses "Random" frequently and I've found I sometime even include it into a conversations....can you believe!?!?!? How Kewl am I....LOL!?!?!!?

Debbie Booth

HI Kim, my daughter loves that word too. Maybe a little too much. My favorite picture (I loved all of them) is sweet little Maggie in the that!


I just loved your random post...especially the cute pic with your precious doggy under the covers! Those pictures may be random indeed, but....they still had the look and feel that I keep coming back to see at Daisy Cottage. Thanks for sharing,



Kim, I just had such fun catching up on your blog and getting a daisy and Maggie fix for myself. Please tell her she looks fabulous in chenille.



I love your pictures! They are always so cheerful and bright. Think you can come to PA and help me with my cottage? It desperately needs some help...I have furniture pieces I love...just struggling with pulling the acccessories together.


I LOVE YOUR RANDOMNESS! Always eye candy here, and a real pick me up for the soul:) xo

p.s. pet that little girls new winter coat for me will you? She is so cute Kim* !


VERY nice random photos. Bright and cheerful.

Pilar from Italy

Dear Kim,
your random is too nice. I have had a terrible day today. I have lost my work this afternoon and tonight, reading your blog I have had some mintes of peace and joy.Thank you very much for the minutes you have given to me. Pilar


I LOVE the random dog in bed. :) Of course...all the other pictures are just as randomly awesome!


You are such a TERRIFIC photgrapher. You ahve such an artistic eye. I would never think of an apple or an old bucket, picture material, to me they would just be an apple and a bucket. I love coming here and to jellybeanangel, she also has an eye for art in everything.

Thanks for such an enjoyable post.


Lisa @ celebrate CREATIVITY

I love the idea of having an entry with random favorites.

Nice pictures and Miss Maggie owns the space wherever she is, doesn't she?

Have a great Thanksgiving holiday!

How funny. I just took a photo of my garden bucket. The one I use all the time! Hardly ever see photos of just buckets. But now we both have them! So timeless and still useful.

The Quintessential Magpie


That's the cutest thing I've ever seen! You are so very, very talented and clever. You caught me with the Maggie one, and I laughed out loud. And the colorful pictures are FABULOUS as always! :-)

Thank you for your kind comments on my new blog. I admire you SO much that those comments are tucked away in my heart for safe-keeping.

Wishing you and Maggie and all the inhabitants of Daisy Cottage a Happy Thursday.

Hey Sweet Kim~
I'm a little chilly, how about you? Nice isn't it? I'm loving it.

We didn't go to Renninger's this time. We went in Jan or Feb, and I actually forgot about it this time. So I loved seeing your pictures.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hi...everything is just so lovely! I am trying to find out from anyone who will tell me, how on earth to get music to your blog. It is so hard being new to this sort of thing. I am learning from all of you and having a wonderful time doing it!

Pat VonSick

I love your blog and enjoy the pictures and following what is happening with you. Also love your music. Have a wonderful healthy, happy New Year.

dani magder

I have a 1940's house I love old houses. I also have the same red chair as you have with the pumpkin on it. I bought it in Ohio at a fleamarket my sister lives there I live in Toronto Canada.
Love your blog it's great!

sandy Rhodehamel

I absolutely love your site. Whenever I am needing some inspiration I always go to your site and am immediately energized. I love the dog, I have a male short hair weenie, 'Remie' and he loves the post too. Beautiful house, beautiful taste throughout. keep up the good work.

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
