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 looks so delicious! Thanks for setting up the categories - it really makes it so much easier to search instead of having to go through posts month by month. I'm sure it was a major job! But it's appreciated!



I am so happy to see your categories! I didn't even realizre I could do that when I began blogging and so far all I have done is archive my posts by month and year. It's a start:>)


Would love to have the recipe! That looks so yummy. Love your blog and always enjoy reading past posts and looking at your beautiful pictures.


is there a recipe for us all?

I might as well apply it directly to my hips.....sigh


Oh man, that looks sooooo good!

Betty Jo

Oh My Goodness! That looks wonderful, and I haven't even had breakfast yet.

Oh Kim, I have good news!! I found an apartment yesterday. Cross your fingers I'll get approval. Should know later today. Will write about it on my blog as soon as I know. There is also an added surprise, two actually, that came along with it.

Mia's Pearls

That looks absolutely delicious.. Thank you for having such a lovely blog. You always cheer me up. :)

Cindy~My Romantic Home

I've been thinking of categorizing all my posts too!!! I keep putting it off because I know it's a big job!


Oh, goodness, that looks like chocolate chip cookie dough! Is it cheesecake? Who made it for you? Full disclosure, please...


Ooo - what is it? It looks like some kind of cookie dough dessert? It looks heavenly.

Sweet Cottage Dreams

I just gained three pounds by looking at that dessert. MMMMMMMMMMM.....looks d-vine!

Great job assorting all of your posts. I bet that that took hours and hours.

Hey Kim, did you ever post the recipe for the delicious chicken dish that you served Laura and I for lunch? I would be ever so grateful for the stomach is growling just thinking about it. mmmmmmtotalgoodness!



Thank you for your inspirational blog and all the work you do on it!


Your dessert looks delicious, i'd have enjoyed it too. 404 posts wow i've just reached 100. well done. Jane x

Kathleen Schott

Nothing better than chocolate and peanut butter....just heavenly.

Post the recipe when you have time..

Happy Weekend


Yummy! looks just wonderful and i bet it tasted great!!!


That looks so delicious!!!




I haven't eaten desserts for three weeks, but I must say that would surely tempt me.

Elizabeth Ann

Yummmmm...What a great way to get the energy to do all the blog-filing! I don't do categories right now, but the more I blog the more I think maybe I should start...thanks for the inspiration. But I think I need some help...Ummm...could you send a piece of pie along to help me get started? *grin*

tea time and roses

Hello dear Kim! That certainly looks delicious, and I can just imagine each bite was absolutely heavenly!!:o) You and your family enjoy a beautiful weekend!




Oh my goodness, Kim! This looks way too good NOT to eat the whole thing...I assure you that I wouldn't have left a single morsel of it either. Does categorizing tons of glorious blog posts burn lots of calories?! :-)

Ashley @ Domestic Fashionista

yummmy...and not to mention how yummy those fabric hearts are as well. ;) Ashley

Jean Eakin

Oh my gosh! What a good looking dessert! Oh for a chocolate fix right now.
Have a great weekend.
Jean in Virginia


Oh my gosh...I want a piece! :( Unfortunately indulging in such treats is a way off for me! I'm too busy trying to slenderize my hips with daily bike riding...which I HATE!

Love the thought of eating it tho. So...I'll keep dreamin'!

Thanks for sharing!


Alauar Parrish

Hey Kim; Yummy Yummy!!!!!!!! it looks very delicious. Your desk area is a great looking one, you are more organized then I am. lol I really need to to do the same with my craft room. I do my blogging in the family room, I have a Laptop, so I just sit in my wing back chair and blog a way.... love it...


Miss Beets

Got Milk?

Elaine L.

Sheri Ingrande

Divine indulgence.....I can pretend I am eating there more?


YUM!! I have a sweet craving right now, and boy would I love to have a piece of that!


Great job on the organizing. I really need to follow and do the same. I am trying to ignore that very tempting picture, as I have sworn off sugar for a while :(


Is that slice of heaven from Deli Delicacies? I lived in Central Florida most of my life and can only think of DD, Publix or you have an awesome friend! Your blog is delightful. Tammi


Oh my goodness I could just eat that wonderful dessert right now with a hot cup of coffee!!
Where did you sample it? could a recipe be available...or was it bought from a wonderful bakery?
Enjoy this day

Julia @ Hooked on Houses

That looks delicious! Yum! What kind of pie is that?

You must've spent hours going through that many posts and adding the categories to each one. My hat's off to you for that! :-)

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
