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

Congratulations Kim and Maggie,

I have always admired that magazine and since we recently lost our Country Home subs this will be a gift to all of us,especially to me since my husband's passing. You and Maggie bring me such joy and inspiration every day so The giveaway with birds to brighten up my days would be a constant reminder of the love and joy of Daisy Cottage. Keep sharing your joy.

Love Rita

Janet V.

Thank you for bringing sweetness, love, color, fun and goodness to my day. I am looking forward to this issue now more than I was because a familiar place will be there! I am happy for you...because you really do reap what you sow. How deserving!

Becky from Tennessee

Congratulations, Kim! You are so generous
with your gifts. Can't wait to see the
issue. Country Sampler used to have a retail store in Knoxville, Tennessee....I
used to shop there every time I would visit
my daughter at the University of Tennessee.
They have since closed but I still like
buying the magazine. There used to be for
many years a Country Sampler Craft show in Nashville twice a year but that has since
stopped, as well. Your home is so cute and
cozy.....I can understand why they would
want to feature you!


How fun! Thanks for the chance to win.


Oh my golly I am doing such a happy dance for you. There is no cottage more special to be published than Daisy. She truly deserves it. I cannot wait to have my very own copy! Kim, congratulations! You have captured out hearts in blog land with your personal warmth and beautiful charming cottage style. Now others can can be enriched as well. I know Fifi has done a beautiful job, along with all the others.I am just sooooooo thrilled for you!


Kim, congratulations! You have a distinct style that should be shown off. Please enter me in your drawing. Love the birds!


Can't wait to see your magazine feature and of course, want to put my name in the hat for your drawing. Hugs, Marcy


Congratulations. Can't wait for the magazine. Your home is so beautiful. What a neat giveaway.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

Congratulations Kim! I love Country Sampler magazine. It was the magazine I turned to for inspiration when decorating our "country decorated" first home :-)I would show my husband photos of benches and shelves etc ... and he would build them. When I see Country Sampler magazine it always brings back great memories of those days!


Kim, Congratulations! Your home is a perfect choice for Country Sampler. After such a long winter your home will add cheerful brightness to the next issue. I have subscribed to Country Sampler for a few years and look forward to seeing your cottage in the next issue. Please enter me in your give away. Birds are one of my favorite things in nature. We have our own little parakeet Tiki, who "barks" like our mini schnauzer and our shi - poo ! By the way, loved the tour through the neighborhood the day you took the long way home. Such a nice little escape on a cold grey winter day ! Isn't it amazing how one little thing a person does can affect so many, and in your case, in such a positive way? Keep up the beautiful work !


What a smörgåsbord of fun!


Hello, I was just floating through blog land and found your blog. The amazing thing is i just finished looking at "Country Sampler". Congrats for being featured! Dee

Congratulations! I can't wait til the magazine hits the stands! A cup of coffee and Country Sampler ~ what could be better!

I am so excited for you. I've already ordered my copy and one for my best friend as a surprise. Words can't express what going to your site each day does for me. I still have that dream of having a special place like Daisy Cottage.
Hugs, Mary

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!
