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

Southern France, Provence! This is definitely the place to go. I am ready with bags packed,too. BUT,I don't have any great red boots to wear like someone I know. Will have to work on that one. Will black Birkenstocks do?? Let's Go. Marcy

Janet K.

Hey Miss Kim, I would love to take a trip with you to some of your favorite thrift stores. You always find such wonderful things and have great ideas on how to use them. Love your blog and all you share! HTH Janet

Daisy Cottage

Let me add, I AM craving Savannah again.. but some place new would be great! ;-)
Oh yes - Provence.. can you imagine? Sigh.


Well, I don't think it will mean as much to you since you're already in Florida...
but I say somewhere WARM!

Brenda Kula

I once had a serious M&M addiction! I feel for ya!

Lavender Dreamer

I have red cowboy boots, too...but I only have plain M & M s....and they are really my hubby's! heehee! But I'm READY.....let's go FAR!!!


I think you should come over to my house=) I live in Florida too and a have cottage on the east coast...I would love for some kindred spirits to come sit on my couch & give me some opinions on colors and what my house is lacking=) We moved here last July & I'm still settling=) I am watching the sunset thru the french doors & I could use some decorating company. I got samples of your yellows to try=)
Have a beautiful Sunday!

Rosie's Whimsy

Well, if we are going by train ...... how about a trip on the Orient Express?

Becky G.

If it's by train, the Canadian Rockies would be great, but by plane it would have to be either Maui or Tuscany.

Oh, and btw, we're going back to Savannah for Easter week if we can keep my dad out of the hospital long enough! Love it!



Old Centennial Farmhouse

I LOVE your boots and the valise, too! I'd say lets head west since you've got your boots. I'll get some too and we'll visit the rodeos and see the mountains and the plains!

michele jansen

This morning I hit the thrift stores in Ephrata, WA with three fabulous girlfriends!! We were headed to Soap Lake too but ran out of time... so Soap Lake is my mini get away next time we get a Saturday when the husbands watch the kids.


Count me in, but I will be a little late, just send the destination. I smell leather and have to buy boots.
See you there. Kathy, Needful Things

Lea Harper

I don't know but I am loving those red boots!


Bobbie Lynn

Have fun!

Betty Jo

Kim you are so much fun! I always look forward to seeing what you are up to here at Daisy Cottage. Love those red boots! ♥


Your photos are always so fabulous!! You really know how to take a great picture :-)

As for where to go.... anywhere that doesn't have snow!! I'd love to go back to Luxembourg and Belgium.... but in some sort of time machine contraption so we wouldn't have to sit on planes for 12 hours ;-)

Lisa ~A Cottage to Me

Hi Kim,
If it's some place warm....I'm there with you! I'll bring the peanut M & M's, one bag for you and one for me. My bags are packed!

Can't wait,


Aah Kim what a great idea! I have cowboy boots just like that in blue and I love M&M's too! I'm ready to go anywhere with you on a shopping trip and a train ride sounds wonderful too. RJ


I've got the M&M's and they are peanut M&M's. WOOHOOOO


Come visit me, we'll shop the Mall of America! I'll wear my boots- they're not red - but my belt with heart buckle is. ~ Robyn

Julie (Knitsational)

I don't know but those red boots were definatley made for walking!


Well my dear I'm on my way to Arizona on Monday and those red boots surely would fit in! Happy Trails!!


Well, since you've got the boots out, I bet we're going to TEXAS to check out the Serendipity Sale and maybe the Canton market and all these great shops bloggers write about all the time that I can't go to because I live 15 hours north in Iowa let me get my boots ( they're more like SNOW boots) and I'll meet ya soon...I just gotta go, ya know? (My snow boots are a burgundy wine color- not red, but close :)

And thanks for the kind thoughts on my family's sad's getting better with time...



Let's go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras! And then mosey on up the Mississippi to Natchez. It's beautiful in the spring!


Sheila :-)


I'm ready to go! I'll bring the Peanut M & Ms because they are my favorite.


Love those red boots. Come on over to Fort Worth; I live less than a mile from one of the best craft/antique malls in town. Pop on over to today's post and see what-all you inspired when I was puttering around yesterday.


London, France and Denmark! What fun! Let's go! :)

Viv Writer

Oh how I would love to go to the beach! I Love Cherry Grove Beach in South Carolina. I can dream away hours thinking about the wonderful times I've had on the beach and beach houses.
We use to go several times a year with friends. What wonderful memories I have. Thank God for memories.
For now I go to the virtual beach in an online game called second life. Well, at least I have that:)

Sherri S

Love the photo! Let's go somewhere WARM, shall we? Ha! Really I'd love to explore the 'junk' and thrift stores with you! I just know we'd find some wonderful things to bring home.


Dear Kim,
Come to Utah! We have great National Parks. Oh, and stop by and bring me some peanut M&M's, they are one of my favorites.

Linda@Lime in the Coconut

England and Ireland, here we come! Seeing Buckingham Palace, eyeing the Crown Jewels, hitting the Portabella Road flea market, doing some pub crawling, walking the green hills and listening to a perfect British voice and a lilting Irish brogue - Ahh! Let's go!

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

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
